Sunset Advisory Commission
The Sunset Advisory Commission was created by Minnesota Laws 2011, First Special Session, Chapter 10, Article 3, Sections 2 to 22. An overview of the Act and the Advisory Commission are found in The Minnesota Sunset Act by Mark Shepard and Lynn Aves, Minnesota House of Representatives Research Office.
The first group of agencies was sunset and was reviewed in 2012, see list below. Changes to the sunset review
process and other 2012 legislative action are relected in Chapter 278 from 2012. Agencies up for review in 2014 include the Department of Health, Department of Human Services, Department of Human Rights, Department of Education, Board of Teaching, Office of Higher Education, the Emergency Medical Services Regulatory Board, and the councils of color.
