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 reflected in Chapter 278 from 2012. 2013 Minnesota Laws, Chapter 142, Article 2 (SF1589, Omnibus State Government bill), repealed the Sunset Advisory Commission and required the Legislative Commission on Planning and Fiscal Policy to biennially review executive branch advisory groups. By December 31 of each odd-numbered year, the commission may make recommendations on the continuing need for certain advisory groups, and on any changes in laws governing a group that are needed to improve the group's efficiency and effectiveness.
