Well, campaign season is upon us. While most of us won’t meet the presidential candidates, people running for local offices will be knocking on our doors and calling us to ask for our votes. It’s a good time to ask about issues that we know will be important when the legislature meets again. Here are a few questions to keep handy by the front door:
Minnesota has already banned the toxic chemical Bisphenol A in baby bottles and sippy cups. Should it be banned in all children’s products?
Minnesota’s electronics waste recycling program only covers some televisions and computer screens. Should it be expanded to cover things like cell phones, iPods and other computer equipment?
Invasive species like zebra mussels and Asian carp are turning up in more and more of our lakes and rivers. What will you do to slow down the spread?
I would love to hear what you learn. Let me know what your candidates say by writing me.
