AIS Meeting tonight---open to public


Recommended Posts

Received this email today:

Hello from St. Paul,

Tonight, Senator Sieben and I will be hosting a town meeting in Hastings regarding aquatic invasive species. The event will be held at 7:00 pm at the Pheasant Hill Library in Hastings, and I hope you can join us.

Many of you have seen the news stories of the flying carp leaping out of the Mississippi River. Not only do they present the obvious hazard to boaters, but they are extremely detrimental to native fish as they consume the food supply.

Recently, these carp were found near Winona, so it’s clear they are making their way upstream and have entered Minnesota. Now lawmakers must determine how to stop their spread.

Steve Hirsch, who is the DNR’s Director of Economical Resources, will also be on hand tonight to discuss how we can deal with this problem. Please join us as well tonight if you are free.

As for our legislative session, we are down to the final three weeks before we are expected to adjourn. I expect legislative leadership to have many discussions with Governor Dayton during this time in order to find consensus on the numerous jobs bills we’ve passed, as well as bonding bill legislation. Who knows, maybe we’ll even have a Vikings stadium bill before us before session adjourns.

As always, if you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me. I can be reached at 437-2597 or [email protected]

Keep in touch,

Maybe you could let them know that adding a sticker to your boat should be good enough to stop the asian carp.


Maybe suggest targeting the Asian carp is more of a dire need, then milfoil, and zeebs. But that is just my opinion.

Can't wait for so many here to rip on the DNR for not stopping this before the carp even got here.

most people that whine about silly things... usually don't let their voice be heard publicly.. unless it's on a forum.. because speaking publicly involves having a spine of sorts.. it's a lot easier to say what you want when you don't have to say it to anyone's face
