Minnesota swan bill includes lead ban, ‘protected’ areas

A Minnesota bill would protect native North American trumpeter, pictured here, and tundra swans but exclude invasive European mute swans. Rep. Rick Hansen, DFL-South St. Paul, is chief author and introduced House File 2368 on March 2, 2023. (Stock photo)

A recently-introduced bill in the Minnesota Legislature would protect swan resting areas and ban lead sinkers in those designated spots. The Minnesota Swan Protection Act would allocate about $1 million to both the Minnesota DNR and Pollution Control Agency to enforce those components of the bill.
