The legislation known as “Jacob’s Law” is on it’s way to Governor Dayton’s desk after receiving unanimous approval from both the Minnesota House and Senate. Jacob’s Law is based on an incident in which a child was molested by a neighbor. The law was intended to allow parents that are separated or divorced to talk to each other in the best interest of a child that has been the victim of neglect as well as physical or sexual abuse. Jacob’s Law was approved by the Minnesota Senate on a 64-0 vote last week, and with a 122-0 vote in the House on Monday. The legislation now goes to Governor Dayton to be signed into law.
