Legislation

Legislation that could impact MN County Law Libraries:

There is proposed legislation that could divert funds from Law Library surpluses to courts. 

See HF3648 https://www.revisor.mn.gov/bin/bldbill.php?bill=H3648.0.html&session=ls86

Looks like the funds would be for general facilities: 

See

Minn. Stat. 484.77 FACILITIES.

The county board in each county shall provide suitable facilities for court purposes at the county seat, or at other locations agreed upon by the district court and the county. The county shall also be responsible for the costs of renting, maintaining, operating, remodeling, insuring, and renovating those facilities occupied by the court. The county board and the district court must mutually agree upon relocation, renovation, new construction, and remodeling decisions related to court facility needs. The state court administrator shall convene court and county representatives who shall develop written model guidelines for facilities that may be adopted in each county.
