Fraud Prevention Working Group
Also known as:
Fraud Working Group
Established by Senator James Metzen, Chair of the Senate Commerce Committee
Function: To address a growing fraud problem in Minnesota, a bipartisan group was formed to identify top fraud-related isses and come up with solutions to the problem. The working group is to report back to the commerce committee with recommendations for the 2014 legislative session.
On May 14, 2013, Senator Metzen, Chair of the Senate Commerce Committee, appointed Senator Jensen and Senator Gazelka as co-chairs of a working group on insurance fraud issues facing Minnesota citizens.
The Working Group had their first meeting on June 18, 2013. The group met the third Thursday of each month starting in September of 2013. They held eight meetings in total.
The working group recommends in its 2014 final report that the chair of the Senate Commerce committee establish a standing sub-committee to continue the work of the working group.
11 members: Co-chairs Sen. Vicki Jensen (DFL) and Sen. Paul Gazelka (R).
