3/30/2017 news from the MN state capitol on the bill to prohibit the MN DNR from further restricting the use of lead shot in hunting (HF 256 / SF 263):
MN Rep. Jamie Becker-Finn brought an amendment to the House floor to remove the prohibition from the omnibus environment & natural resources finance & policy bill, HF 888. Unfortunately, it failed 50-82 on a roll-call vote.
