NAR Call for Action: Urge your Senator to bring HR 3700 Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act of 2016 to the Floor of the Senate!
Tell the Senate to Get to Work for Future Homebuyers

This legislation provides significant benefits to taxpayers, homebuyers and the real estate market by:
- Removing a burdensome and expensive FHA Condo approval process
- Reducing FHA restrictions on the number of condos available to homebuyers
- Permanently streamlining Rural Housing Service loan processing

Zebra mussels confirmed in Cass Lake in Cass County
Zebra mussels have been confirmed in Cass Lake located in Cass County in northwestern Minnesota, according to the Department of Natural Resources.
A citizen discovered the zebra mussels earlier in the week while collecting shells on the beach on the southeast corner of Cedar Island. The area is a popular beach and swimming area where people park their watercraft to swim and fish.
Three hollow (dead) zebra mussels of varying sizes (ages) were collected. The samples were given to a DNR creel clerk who submitted them to the DNR area fisheries office in Bemidji where they were verified to be zebra mussels.
Following the identification, DNR staff conducted a search on Cass Lake around the northwest and southeast points of Cedar Island. The crew inspected more than 200 items along 565 feet of shoreline and 2,500 square feet of lake habitat and found zebra mussels in a variety of sizes.
“This is the first confirmed adult zebra mussel find in the Bemidji area,” said Nicole Kovar, DNR invasive species specialist.
