Parle 16 Communit00r lib Michelle Fischbach Minnesota State Senator Week in review, March 8 This week at the Capitol, a With final passage by both leg- islative chambers, the bill now heads to a conference commit- tee where the differences between the two proposals will be worked out. Once an agreement on final language is reached, it will be re- passed by the House and Senate and sent to the governor for his signature. Other happenings: The Jobs, Agriculture and Rural Development Committee heard testimony on five minimum wage increase bills this week. Legis- lation was introduced and dis- cussed to raise the minimum wage in Minnesota to $7.25, $7.50, $9.50 and $10.55 per hour. Because of the number of testifiers on the proposals, further action on the bills was delayed to a future hear- ing. The State and Local Govern- ment Committee passed Senate File 778, a bill that could result in the unionization of child daycare providers. Under the bill, daycare number of issues took center state. None were more controversial then the passage by the full Sen- ate of S.E1 (Lourey) the Minne- sota Insurance Marketplace Act, also known as the Health Care Exchange. The bill was passed by the Senate late Thursday night after 11 hours of debate and dis- cussi6"n of over 40 amendments. This action follows passage of a similar bill by the House earlier this week. This legislation is being pur- sued in response to the Afford- able Care Act which was passed by Congress a few years ago. The exchange will act as clearinghouse for approved health care plans and Minnesotans will be able to purchase coverage through this entity. Much of the discussion sur- rounding the bill centered on date privacy for consumers as well as the lack of impact the bill will have on overall health care costs. providers who choose not to join the union would still be forced to pay union fees, be subject to the terms and conditions negoti- ated by the union, and be effec- tively deemod employees of the state. The bill will be heard next in the Health, Human Services, and Housing Committee. The Senate Education Com- mittee held a hearing on a bill that would create a new anti-bullying lawin Minnesota. S.E 783 (Dibble) contains a series of new mandates, definitions, and reporting require- ments for public and nonpublic schools alike, all aimed at prevent- ing bullying in our schools. There were a number of amendments considered to the bill and it was ultimately passed and referred for further vetting in the Senate Judi- ciary Committee. Several key data practice measures have begun moving out of the Judiciary Com- mittee and are being sent to the full Senate. These include a data classification and retention policy for law enforcement use of auto- matic license plate readers, a pro- cedure for people to find out who is accessing their private data that the government holds, and a requirement of more investi- Thursday, March 14, 2013 Tri-County_ gation and report to private citi- zens when their data is breached. Another important bill moving to the Senate floor is to remove the civil statute of limitations for a" person who was sexually abused as a minor. This means that a per- son who was sexually abused as a child will have a longer time to heal and come to terms with what happened, without them losing their ability to find civil relief in court, against their abusers.
