Legislation gives 4-H funding source

Email News Alerts

ST. PAUL -- Cities could donate to 4-H clubs under two bills senators tentatively passed Thursday.

Formal passage is expected in the next few days.


Sen. Kathy Saltzman, DFL-Woodbury, said she brought the proposal forward because when Washington County cut its 4-H funding, cities discovered they cannot legally donate funds to 4-H.

The measure passed on its own and also as part of an overall agriculture bill.
