Brandon Law headed to governor

ST. PAUL - The House gave final passage to Brandon's Law, a bill requiring faster police response when young adults go missing.

The measure passed 131-0 Tuesday, sending it to the governor, who is expected to sign it.

Rep. Marty Seifert, R-Marshall, promoted the bill after one of his constituents, Brandon Swanson, disappeared.

The bill requires law enforcement officers to take missing persons reports immediately and begin an investigation when there are circumstances that indicate the person may be in danger.
