SF786: Frac sand mining moratorium

Frac sand mining is relatively new to Minnesota, and the state has yet to establish permitting standards, leaving local governments to figure it out on their own. In other states, frac sand mining has polluted water and air, ruined road, and destroyed critical habitat and wildlife. This bill puts a moratorium on frac sand mining until the state permitting standards are put in place.
