We wanted to give you a quick update on our recent post about HF322, the bill that modified the presumptions regarding joint physical custody. Yesterday, Governor Dayton vetoed the bill. You can read his veto letter here. In the letter, Governor Dayton proposes active collaboration with the Legislature in the next session, so it’s likely that this issue will return next year.
UPDATE: A reader correctly notes that Governor Dayton did not actually veto HF322. Instead, as he noted in his letter above, he chose to not sign the bill or deposit it with the Secretary of State, thereby resulting in a pocket veto.
