Governor Dayton Takes Action on Bill

May 28, 2014

The Governor has signed Chapter 293, Senate File 1770, with the exception of line item vetoes for Page 1, lines 1.15-1.17.
The bill requires all government contracts with a private person to include a notice that the requirements of the Data Practices Act apply, and that the Data Practices Act will apply even when the notice is not included in the contract. The bill excludes health plan companies, managed care organizations, county-based purchasing plan, providers and others from the notice requirement until June 30, 2015. The bill also clarifies in law how the Department of Public Safety must sell driver’s license and motor vehicle records and establishes a bulk rate fee.
This passed unanimously in both chambers. The Governor’s letter regarding the line item vetoes is attached here.
