Budget battles, soccer tax breaks?

State Rep. Joe Atkins
District 52B

A whirlwind week is winding down. About two weeks ago, there were over 2,000 legislative proposals in play. Only about 320 remain, as a result of two bruising deadline weeks in which bills had to pass necessary committees in the House and Senate, or be left behind. But the most lively discussions in the hallways swirled around additional tax breaks for the 2018 Super Bowl and a new pro soccer stadium.

Control erosion to protect local waterways during spring

The long awaited spring has finally arrived. Goodbye snow and icy roads, dreary days spent indoors, and abundant layers of clothes. Hello mud. Mud is an inevitable part of spring, but it can be a big problem for local lakes and streams when it doesn’t stay put on the land. Active building sites can be particularly problematic, even when they’re relatively small. Dirt can wash into wetlands, as well as storm sewers that connect to nearby lakes and streams, clouding the water and smothering fish spawning areas. The dirt is often rich in phosphorus as well, which translates into algae blooms in lakes and wetlands later in the summer.
