A proposal to transfer $1 million of NRP funds to the City of Minneapolis to pay for community-oriented public safety activities was put on hold for 60 days following a spirited debate by members of the NRP Policy Board during its June 30 meeting. Several members of the board were concerned that important questions still needed to be answered before the proposal could be considered. The board's biggest concerns centered on the legality of the transfer as well as uncertainty over the level of NRP's Phase II funding.
