The Honorable Kurt Daudt

Speaker of the House of Representatives

The State of Minnesota

 

Dear Speaker Daudt:

 

      I am vetoing and returning to you H. F. No. 985, Chapter No. 78, a bill relating to the duty of landowners.  This legislation has been discussed as a codification of Minnesota's common law relating to the duty of landowners to trespassers on their properties.  However, the measure falls short of that objective and has significant Constitutional consequences.

 

      Unrecognized in this legislation are the already existing statutory protections for Minnesota landowners against claims for injuries that occur on their properties.  Minnesota Statutes, Sections 604A.20-604A.27 provide protections for landowners, who allow their lands to be used for recreational purposes.  There are also legal protections for farmers, who allow livestock activities on their lands, as well as for agritourism businesses, under Minnesota Statutes, Section 604A.12 and 604A.40.

 

      If this legislation is an effort to revise those existing laws, relating to the duty of a landowner to trespassers, it needs to be more specific.  Other states with similar legislation have specifically outlined what those duties are, including:  who is an actual trespasser; protections for children, who enter properties; requirements to warn of dangerous conditions on lands; and responsibilities to correct conditions that could cause serious injuries or even death to children.

 

      In closing, I support the protection of landowners.  I encourage them and other stakeholders to work together and craft legislation, which more clearly delineates their respective protections and responsibilities.

 

 

                                                                                                                                Sincerely,

 

                                                                                                                                Mark Dayton

                                                                                                                                Governor

 

 

      [NOTE:  Pursuant to Joint Rule 3.02(c), the above vetoed bill, H. F. No. 985, Chapter No. 78, which was returned to the House by the Governor with his objections, was laid on the table.]
