Topics: "St. Louis County Considers Wheelage Tax" & "Duluth Pet Ordinance"

Description: The Minnesota Legislature has authorized counties to impose a "wheelage tax" to help pay for county road repairs. St. Louis County board members will decide this month whether to enact the $10-dollar per-car tax. And Duluthians with unlicensed pets could face hefty fees if their furry friend is impounded. A new city ordinance also encourages having pets spayed or neutered.

Guests: Frank Jewell, St. Louis County Commissioner; John Ongaro, St. Louis County Intergovernmental Relations Director; Carrie Lane, Duluth Animal Control Officer; Dr. Amanda Bruce, PetCare of Duluth
