Dayton signs Timberjay bill
Cheers to Gov. Mark Dayton for signing the Timberjay Bill.
On Wednesday, he signed the bill into law, making private companies’ contracts on government projects public under Minnesota’s open records law.
The legislation stemmed from Ely-based Timberjay Newspapers’ legal fight to see the contract between Milwaukee-based Johnson Controls and its subcontractor for an $80 million school project in northern Minnesota, according to the Associated Press.
