What’s in a name?

Quite a bit, it would seem, to Minnesota Technology, Inc.

A technical law changes that nonprofit corporation to Enterprise Minnesota, Inc.

Rep. Tim Mahoney (DFL-St. Paul), who sponsors the law with Sen. David Tomassoni (DFL-Chisholm), said that the organization was getting confused with the Minnesota High Tech Association.

Formed by the Legislature in 1991, the purpose of the corporation is to “foster long-term economic growth and job creation by stimulating innovation and the development of new products, services and production processes through energy conservation, technology application and utilization and financial assistance.”

Signed May 12 by Gov. Tim Pawlenty, it is effective May 13, 2008.
