Commentary: Bill to transfer Minnesota’s White Earth State Forest land to tribe divisive, unpopular, unnecessary

A new bill has come to my attention, and the ramifications are concerning. I believe the public deserves to know about it before the bill goes anywhere. Sen. Mary Kunesh, DFL-New Brighton, has recently introduced a bill that proposes the transfer of White Earth State Forest land to the White Earth Band of Minnesota Chippewa (White Earth Nation).
This proposal transfers a large chunk of land to the tribe.
