Each edition of the Focus on New Laws column highlights a law passed in the most recent legislative sessions that cities need to know about. Please be sure to always consult your city attorney with technical questions about compliance with laws. For more information about new 2016 laws, check out the League’s Preliminary 2016 Law Summaries (pdf).
Note: An updated 2016 Law Summaries publication will be published after a special session to complete unfinished work or after Gov. Dayton decides there will be no special session.
