Senate votes to eliminate buffer confusion


ST. PAUL -- The Minnesota Legislature is close to cleaning up misunderstandings in a law meant to clean up the state's water.

Senators on Thursday passed legislation 61-0 making it clear that vegetative buffers will not be required along private ditches. The measure also clears up other issues that raised questions about the nearly year-old buffer law, many coming from farmers who did not know what they would be required to do to meet the law.
