This amendment would only impact this year. It is now in the hands of Governor Mark Dayton to sign. Proponents of the bill say that it avoids a Mother's Day conflict with the Minnesota opener and it takes advantage of the warmer weather the state has experienced lately. Opposition comes primarily from resort owners who say this short notice is causing them stress in preparation and meeting customers needs.
What do you think? Do you support having the Minnesota opener moved up a week this year or do think the state should leave things as they are?
