The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports…
Ellison said his office will organize a task force to analyze compliance with the Women’s Economic Security Act and said drug prices, wages and issues affecting residents in greater Minnesota would round out four items “that we are going to push for the next four years.”
Ellison said his staff is working to build a “unit that can make sure we’re working on fair pay and fighting wage theft all the time.” He said that would involve building up the office’s investigative capacity to address wages while also working with agencies on agricultural, broadband and telecommunication disparities in greater Minnesota.
You know broadband is a hot topic when the new Minnesota Attorney General is putting it on his agenda. In the last couple of years, former AG Lori Swanson was involved with Comcast case, Net Neutrality and CenturyLink. Maybe he’s referring to those or something new.
