Labor bill advances

Yesterday at the Capitol

The Senate State and Local Government Operations and Oversight Committee met yesterday to take up a variety of bills, including SF 1036, the bill that ratifies labor contracts that were not finished in time to be ratified last session. Included is the MSUAASF contract, Commissioner's plan and the Managerial plan. The bill was approved and sent to the full Finance Committee.

Also heard and acted on yesterday was SF 867, sponsored by Sen. Kathy Saltzman DFL-Woodbury. The bill, which was heard in the Senate Education committee, modifies charter school provisions by adding responsibilities to the charter school advisory council, clarifies health and safety requirements, requires charter schools to publish an annual report and modifies aid payments to charter schools. The bill was approved and heads next to the State and Local Government Operation and Oversight Committee.

At the Capitol:
Legislative schedules are available for the House and Senate.
