Minnesota—Proposed Incentive Funds for Shrimp Farming


On February 16, 2017, Minnesota State Senator Bill Weber introduced Senate File 841 to the Minnesota Senate Agriculture, Rural Development and Housing Committee, a bill which creates a $5 million incentive program for Minnesota companies that produce over 25,000 pounds of shrimp a quarter.  Following its Senate committee hearing, the bill would head to the Agriculture, Rural Development and Housing Finance Committee for further consideration.  A companion bill has not yet been introduced to the Minnesota House of Representatives.
