Agenda for Minnesota Resources group includes tree diseases, wind energy, carp

A day-long meeting on Tuesday of the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources — the group that makes funding recommendations to the Legislature for special environment and natural resource projects — will tackle a number of topics, including tree diseases and wind energy.

They’ll meet at the Capitol at 9 a.m., where they’ll consider conflicts of interest, talk about trees and pests and discuss other business before heading out on a field trip to the Lake Phalen area in St. Paul.

There, they’ll learn about “Integrated Control of the Common Carp,” and hear about Ramsey-Washington Watershed water quality improvements.

Members of the commission are: Sen. Ellen Anderson, Alfred Berner, Jeff Broberg, Rep. Lyndon Carlson, Sen. Satveer Chaudhary, Sen. Dennis Frederickson,  Nancy Gibson, John Herman, Rep. Larry Howes, Norman Moody, Mary Mueller, Sen. Pat Pariseau, Rep. Tom Rukavina,  Rep. Ron Shimanski, Sen. Jim Vickerman, Rep. Jean Wagenius and Elizabeth Wilkens.
