Author: Senator Alice M. Johnson
Prepared By:
Date: March 16, 2015


Section 1 strikes, rewrites, and clarifies language dealing with the scope of application of certificate of compliance requirements. A state agency could enter into a contract if a business has applied for a certificate of compliance (current law requires that it have a certificate of compliance), or certifies in writing that it is exempt.

Section 2 rewrites language governing certificate of compliance requirements when a business is in compliance with affirmative action requirements of another government entity.

Section 3 rewrites certificate of compliance requirements for the metropolitan council and agencies, consistent with the amendments in section 1.
