Senator Lindsey Port Applauds Governor Tim Walz’ Signing of Consumer Protection ‘Junk Fees’ Legislation

ST. PAUL, Minn. — On May 20, Governor Tim Walz signed Senator Lindsey Port’s landmark anti-junk fees legislation (HF 3438) into law, bringing more honesty into Minnesota’s economy and delivering transparent pricing for consumers.

“I am proud to say that deceptive and anti-competitive junk fees won’t be allowed in Minnesota for much longer,” said Senator Port (DFL-Burnsville). “Today, we are standing up for Minnesotans who expect honesty and transparency in their economy. This consumer-friendly, market-based policy is good for Minnesotans and our businesses and workers. I’m grateful to Representative Emma Greenman and every business owner, worker and consumer who shared their expertise as we developed this legislation, and I’m delighted to see it signed into law.”

HF 3438 requires that businesses disclose the full price of a product or service, including all mandatory fees, at the beginning of the transaction; and will prevent misleading “convenience” or “service” fees that do not align with an additional product or service.

Lindsey Port represents Senate District 55, which covers the communities of Burnsville, Savage, and the northwest part of Lakeville.
