Here is some breaking news for the owners of boat and equipment trailers:
(Released January 28, 2015)
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will postpone the new aquatic
invasive species training and trailer decal program that was due to launch
at the end of the month, while legislators consider changes to the program.
Under a law passed by the state Legislature in 2012, anyone trailering a
boat or water-related equipment such as docks and lifts in Minnesota is
required to take aquatic invasive species training and display a decal on
their trailer. The effective date was July 1, 2015.
“With the legislative interest in this educational program and ongoing
discussions about possible changes, we are postponing the launch until we
see if the Legislature acts this session to modify the program,” said Bob
Meier, DNR assistant commissioner.
