It may not be the sexiest measure at the Capitol but it will go down in history as the first bill Gov. Mark Dayton enacted.
Dayton signed SF 139 into law Thursday.

Under SF139, contractors who receive their certification now have until August 1st to post their name on the verified list, viewable on the Department of Labor and Industry’s website."
