OUR ENVIRONMENT

“We build community when our air, water, and natural resources are preserved and enhanced for everyone’s use and enjoyment.”

 Kathleen has invested in our natural resources, money for the state parks, our scientists, and sand mine inspectors.  However, regulations and laws for protecting our environment are only as good as the enforcement they receive though.  In the past few years, there has been a significant reduction in enforcement actions both in the wildlife and environmental area.  This is where our state needs help.  This reduction in enforcement actions comes from a shortage in staff.
