Carlson Plans to seek aid; also wants forested areas cleared
BEMIDJI - Sen. John Carlson, R-Bemidji, said he plans to ask the Legislature to allocate funds to reimburse local cities for storm damage cleanup costs.
"I don't know if it will work, but I'm going to try," Carlson said.
The Legislature is expected to meet next month in a special session to consider relief funds for Duluth and northeastern Minnesota that were impacted by June 20 flooding.
