Capitol Report: New Agriculture Policies; Leaving State Service; Ending Eviction Moratorium
Several new agriculture policies were recently signed into law by Governor Walz. Senator Torrey Westrom, chair of the Senate Agriculture and Rural Development Finance and Policy Committee, talks with Capitol Report Moderator Shannon Loehrke about changes impacting the cottage food industry, "garage guys" and paramedics that treat injured K9 police dogs.
Paul Mandell has spent half of his life working for the Capitol Area Architectural and Planning Board and will be retiring from his role as Executive Secretary at the end of June. He joins Capitol Report Moderator Shannon Loehrke to reflect on his years of public service.
Also on program, the DFL pushes for an orderly end to the eviction moratorium and a look back at the 2021 session.
