The Legislature is in its final days and many bills concerning environmental protection from nitrogen and other nutrient “pollutants” seem sidelined for this year. Few bills confronted the real issue: preventing nitrogen and other nutrients from entering groundwater and the aquifer.
Perhaps they are being put off until they can be debated more fully next year, or there is a legislative “surprise” yet to come. These issues are important and deserve careful consideration. Most remaining bills deal more with reorganizing bureaucracies and requiring reports.
