MN Bill Would Offer Tax Credit For Water Quality Certification

(St. Paul, MN) — Minnesota farmers could soon receive a financial incentive for making sure their land meets state water quality guidelines. A bill being considered this year would offer a five-dollar an acre tax credit for land certified by the Minnesota Agricultural Water Quality Certification Program. Southeastern Minnesota Republican Representative Steven Jacob is sponsoring the bill. He was among the first farmers in the state to have his land certified when the program began ten years ago. A hearing on the bill is set in the House Agriculture Committee next week.
