Prepared By: Greg Knopff, Senate Analyst (651/296-9399)
 
Date: March 6, 2017



 

Section 1 [Greater than 80 percent area] applies the definition of a “greater than 80 percent area” to a wetland bank service area.

Section 2 [Less than 50 percent area] applies the definition of a “less than 50 percent area” to a wetland bank service area.

Section 3 [Wetland replacement siting] prohibits wetland replacement siting in a greater than 80 percent area when the wetlands drained or filled are in an area outside of an 80 percent area.  This section also removes current restrictions that state:

               (1) wetlands drained or filled in a 50 to 80 percent area must be replaced in a 50 to 80 percent area or in a less than 50 percent area; and

               (2) wetlands drained or filled in a less than 50 percent area must be replaced in a less than 50 percent area.
