We inquired as to why he was in our State Capitol, and learned he was here in support of legislation to protect children from exploitation on the Internet, and the ban on “Mommy Accounts.” This legislation takes additional steps past what was previously signed into law and HF3488 is authored by Rep ZacharyZach” Stephenson (DFL-35A, Coon Rapids) and its companion in the Senate is SF3496 authored by Sen. Erin Maye Quaid (DFL-56, Apple Valley).
