BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA:

Section 1. APPROPRIATION; WATER-QUALITY CREDIT TRADING PROGRAM

$300,000 in fiscal year 2018 is appropriated from the clean water fund to the

2013, and identifying additional credit generators such as landowners, livestock farmers,
in-lake water management practices, and stream restoration projects. The program must
include credit-estimation methodologies and required trade ratios, credit demand calculation
procedures, implementation recommendations, and a transferable credit trading infrastructure.
The commissioner must convene a stakeholder group to guide the project. By July 1, 2019,
the commissioner must provide a final report to the chairs and ranking minority members
of the legislative committees with jurisdiction over environment and natural resources policy
and finance and the clean water fund.
