Congressman Tom Emmer

Representing the 6th District of Minnesota

Natural Resources

The Land of 10,000 Lakes is more than just a slogan; it is a way of life for all Minnesotans.

There is a delicate balance between maintaining our state’s abundant resources and maintaining steady job creation and economic output. Many environmental policies that come out of Washington harm industries such as agriculture and mining which are vital to our success as a state.

We need to cut back the regulations that stifle private industry and make sure that any government programs—new or existing—help, not hinder, Minnesotans from taking full advantage of the natural resources our state provides.
