Legislative Update

Legislative E-Update - Real ID, Minnesota Values Project, Fall Color Report

Friends and Neighbors,

On Wednesday we learned that Minnesota has been granted an extension until next year to implement Real ID. Governor Dayton released this statement:

“The State of Minnesota has been notified by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that we have been granted a formal extension for REAL ID compliance through October 10, 2018. All Minnesotans should be assured that they can continue to board commercial airplanes and access federal facilities with their existing Drivers Licenses or Birth Certificates, as we work to fully implement REAL ID and comply with federal requirements.”

Over the next year, I will monitor the progress of the implementation process.

What do you value?

In these turbulent times, how can you improve life for your family and our community? Recently, legislators have crossed the state, listened to Minnesotans and facilitated a dialogue about our shared values and future. The conversations have been challenging and thoughtful. People from all walks of life have attended and shared so much about themselves and their communities.

If you’d like to join other Minnesotans and share what you value and how to move forward to achieve those goals, please take this opportunity to fill out a brief, four question survey.
