Some New Laws
July 1 is an important date for new laws. If a bill contains an appropriation, its effective date is July 1. All other bills that do not name a specific start date become effective August 1. Some of the newest Minnesota laws are:
- HF2360: $110,000 in payouts for claims against the state. This is an annual practice by the Legislature. The joint House and Senate Claims Subcommittee is tasked with determining which claims against the state should be funded.
- SF1712: Portions of the Pensions and Retirement omnibus bill.
- SF440: Modifications in statute for tax-forfeited land sales.
