The latest battle to erupt at the MN Capitol? Mowing.

A battle between farmers and Minnesota regulators about highway ditch mowing will continue to simmer at the state Capitol.

On one side of the mowing battle are farmers who say they are saving the state millions of dollars by mowing ditches for what they say is a relatively small amount of low-quality hay. On the other side are environmentalists who want to limit mowing as protection for small animals like bees and butterflies, and the Minnesota Department of Transportation, with a desire to keep mowing next to highways for safety reasons.
