S.F. No. 960 - Agricultural Fertilizer Research and Education Program
 
Author: Senator Torrey N. Westrom
 
Prepared By: Greg Knopff, Senate Analyst (651/296-9399)
 
Date: February 20, 2017



 

SF 960 extends the expiration dates for both the Minnesota Agricultural Fertilizer Research and Education Council and the Minnesota Agricultural Fertilizer Research and Education Program to June 30, 2020.  Under current law, the council and the program expired on January 8, 2017.  The bill provides a retroactive effective date of January 7, 2017, for the extension in order to revive the council and program.  This change will line up these expiration dates with the current expiration date for the Agricultural Fertilizer Research and Education account.  The council decides on grants for agricultural fertilizer research and education from money collected on an additional fee of 40 cents per ton on fertilizer.  The additional fee expires on June 30, 2019.
