1.10legislature and governor of the state of Minnesota recognize that the civil unrest that occurred
1.11in Minnesota in May and June of 2020 raises questions about the nature of orders given,
1.12responses made, and actions taken by civil authorities. The Minnesota public lacks a
1.13comprehensive and accurate timeline of events and the role played in those events by:
1.14(1) local authorities;

2.7decisions and actions cannot be undertaken by persons currently in state or local government,

2.9dispassionate analysis.
2.10(d) Therefore, a Civil Unrest Investigatory Commission is established to examine and
2.11create a public record of all actions, choices, orders, and responses by all local governments,

2.18    Subd. 3. Cooperation. The commission must be given access to all records and
2.19documents held by any government entity that are in any way associated with the civil unrest
2.20of May and June 2020. Within legal and constitutional rights, all elected and appointed
2.21officials must cooperate with requests made by the commission.
2.22    Subd. 4. Data. All materials and information held by or created by the commission must
2.23be made public upon completion of the report required under this act.

2.25(a) The chief justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court must appoint a panel of ten neutral
2.26persons to constitute the Civil Unrest Investigatory Commission. Appointees must: (1) have
2.27no current involvement with any political party; (2) have played no role in the events of
2.28May and June 2020; and (3) have the highest personal probity and ability to command public
2.29confidence. Members must be chosen for expertise in management of public crises and
2.30knowledge of government responses to civil unrest.
2.31(b) The commission must be established by July 1, 2020. The chief justice must designate
2.32one member of the panel to serve as chair.
