Sign will send message to two states
A billboard that states boldly that "the air is cleaner" in Minnesota was unveiled near the Minnesota/Wisconsin border Wednesday, April 2. The message has the blessing of officials in both St. Croix County and Washington County (Minnesota).
The billboard's message is in reference to Minnesota's Freedom to Breathe Act, which was approved last year by the Minnesota Legislature and signed into law by Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty. The law has been in effect since Oct 1, 2007.
