New Minnesota Laws for 2010

31 Dec

Each year state legislatures roll out new laws – and there are already thousands of them on the books.  It’s tough to keep track of them all, but here are some that have been deemed noteworthy.  They include regulations affecting ATV use, horseback riding, chemicals found in plastics designed for use by infants and the kind of bags Metro-area residents can use to dispose of yard waste.  See more at the following link: http://www.startribune.com/politics/state/80384787.html?page=1&c=y
