SF 131/HF 176

Thanks Katie! For more background, here is an article from GOVERNMENT TECHNOLOGY that discussed Rep. Thissen's interest in this legislation.

New bills in MN Legis. SF 131/HF 176

The bill referred to in the MNCOGI board meeting minutes for Jan. 22, 2007, is SF 131/HF 176. The Senate author is Sen. Don Betzold and the House author is Rep. Paul Thissen. You can see the text of the bills by going to and entering the bill number in the appropriate box.

I have made contact with one of the lobbyists who is supporting the bill and have asked for a meeting to learn more. As I have more information, I will let everyone know.
