HF 2704: Bring MN Parks to ADA Standards

This appropriations bill provides funding for capital improvements for state-owned entities, such as the University of Minnesota and other state colleges and universities. Additionally, it would appropriate $131 million to the state’s Natural Resources Department to bring state parks to ADA standards, renovate or replace facilities (using the most energy-efficient and carbon-reducing method), provide grants for local parks and trails, as well as provide funding to acquire, restore and reforest the state’s public lands.

Permanent, Full Funding for LWCF
