Gov. Mark Dayton on Tuesday signed 17 pieces of legislation into law, including an agriculture policy bill, new insurance requirements for ride-sharing companies such as Uber and Lyft, and the acceptance by law enforcement of digital proof of insurance.
The 17 bills were largely noncontroversial, having passed both chambers unanimously. Among the other new laws are labor agreement ratifications for Minnesota State University’s Administrative and Service Faculty, Minnesota State College Faculty, Minnesota Nurses Association, InferFaculty Organization and the Minnesota Law Enforcement Association.
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
