Current Version - as introduced

A bill for an act
relating to public safety; authorizing governmental units to sue to recover for the
public safety response costs related to unlawful assemblies and public nuisances;
proposing coding for new law in Minnesota Statutes, chapter 609.


Section 1.


(a) A person is civilly liable for public safety response costs if the person is convicted
of participating in an unlawful assembly under section 609.705, being present at an unlawful
assembly under section 609.715, or committing a public nuisance under section 609.74.
"Civilly liable for public safety response costs" means that the person is liable to a state
agency or political subdivision for costs incurred for the purpose of responding to the
unlawful assembly or public nuisance. A fine paid by a defendant from the same violation
may not be applied toward payment of the civil liability imposed under this section.

(b) A state agency or political subdivision that incurs costs as described in paragraph
(a) may bring an action to recover the civil liability and related legal, administrative, and
court costs. A civil action may be commenced as is any civil action.
