ST. PAUL - State Representative Mary Franson (R-Alexandria) released the following statement on the Minnesota Court of Appeals decision that found Governor Dayton and the Bureau of Mediation Services to be liable for attorneys' fees to home-based childcare providers - the plaintiffs - in the childcare unionization lawsuit:

"This is a win for our small business in-home childcare providers after Governor Dayton overstepped his constitutional authority by attempting to unilaterally impose a union election," said Franson. "Governor Dayton needlessly wasted public dollars in defending his action in this lawsuit and now the taxpayers will be on the hook to clean up his mistake."
