Compiled by the Minnesota Legislative Reference Library

Governor's Select Committee on Recycling and the Environment (SCORE)

Active dates:August, 1988-
Governor Rudy Perpich

The Committee's original function was to recommend a set of solutions to the problems of solid waste and litter reduction in Minnesota, and to recommend ways to promote recycling. The group was to submit recommendations to Governor Perpich by the end of October. 


In 1989, the Legislature adopted legislation, based on recommendations made by the Governor's Select Committee on Recycling and the Environment (SCORE), to further waste reduction, reuse, and recycling. Among other things, SCORE statutes authorize state grants for recycling, managing problem materials, educating the public, and other related activities. Each county is required to provide matching funds of at least 25 percent of its SCORE grant.
