Capitol security committee to continue for at least 14 more years

First enacted in 2012, the Advisory Committee on Capitol Area Security is directed to assess safety and security risks in the Capitol area and discuss developments that might affect those risks in the future.

Sponsored by Rep. Jim Nash (R-Waconia) and Sen. Warren Limmer (R-Maple Grove), a new law extends the commission’s sunset date from June 30, 2022 to June 30, 2036.

Per its website, “By Jan. 15 each year, ACCAS provides a general assessment of security in the Capitol Area, describes improvements implemented, and recommend future improvements. It also offers recommendations for capital or operating expenditures, statutory changes, or other changes in security-related policies or practices. All this information is presented in an annual report, which can also include draft legislation to implement any recommended changes in law.”
