Bans Keep Spreading in Minnesota; Shoreview Makes #17
Another suburban Minneapolis-St. Paul community has passed a coal tar sealant ban. Earlier this week I was contacted by a staff member who said Shoreview passed a ban at their March 19, 2012 City Council Meeting. This passage marks 17 separate municipal coal tar sealant bans in Minnesota alone. An interactive map of the bans and government use restrictions in the US is shown below.
