Minnesota repeals obsolete interstate compact on juveniles

Though the “Unsession” was last year, Minnesota continues to clean up obsolete laws. This week the Senate repealed the old Juvenile Interstate Compact, as all 50 states now abide by a new compact. The new compact governs the transfer of juvenile offenders in the Department of Corrections between states to make interstate coordination between corrections departments more effective and efficient. This repeal will simply remove unnecessary, outdated language.

The bill passed unanimously, 60-0. (S.F. 1478)
