Described as a housekeeping bill for the Office of the Secretary of State relating to business services, a new law signed by Gov. Tim Pawlenty April 17 allows for documents to be returned by electronic methods and through facsimile transmission.

The law also addresses issues relating to foreign corporations, including modifications to the notice required for corporations that change their name, dissolve or merge. The corporation will no longer need to file the information with the secretary of state, but certify to the office that they possess documents relating to any change.

Sponsored by Rep. Ryan Winkler (DFL-Golden Valley) and Sen. Patricia Torres Ray (DFL-Mpls), the law has various effective dates.
