These New Laws Go Into Effect Today In Minnesota
Most of us don't even realize when new laws are put into effect. But it's important to know, because there are some good ones!
1. Safe Seniors Act: Investment advisors and broker dealers can often see when someone is trying to financially exploit seniors or other vulnerable populations — individuals 65 and older, according to the law, or legally defined as vulnerable — and the act will give them the ability to report the potential threats to the state, followed by giving law enforcement an opportunity to intervene.
2. Siblings Bill Of Rights: Establishes a set of rights for foster care children, including the right to be placed with their siblings when possible and to visit their siblings.
3. Service Dogs: A new law will make it a crime to knowingly misrepresent an animal in one’s possession as an assistance animal in a public place to obtain rights or privileges available to someone who qualifies for a service animal under state or federal law.
These are just a handful. There are many more new laws in effect, and you can read about all of them by clicking here.
