Monday afternoon, Rep. Jamie Becker-Finn (DFL-Roseville) announced a comprehensive plan to address the rampant spread of Chronic Wasting Disease.
Rep. Becker-Finn was joined by colleagues from the Legislature, hunters, and outdoors advocates. Rep. Becker-Finn said the outbreak requires immediate, comprehensive action.
The plan would provide $1.56 million to the DNR in 2020 for CWD management and response which would include monitoring escaped deer.
