Steve Simon: Safe at Home bill a critical safeguard

May 18, 2015


Secretary Simon’s initiative to strengthen the Secretary of State’s Safe at Home address confidentiality program and further protect victims of domestic violence just passed the Minnesota Legislature!

The bill provides a framework for courts to use when determining whether or not to order a Safe at Home participant to disclose their physical address. Safe at Home has assisted over 5,000 Minnesotans and this bill will help give peace of mind to current and future participants who rely on this life-saving service.

“Having just met with some of the local agencies in Greater Minnesota who work with our Safe at Home program, I can tell you that passing this bill is a critical step to ensuring protection for victims of domestic violence and other Minnesotans who fear for their safety,” said Secretary Simon. “The Safe at Home program has assisted thousands of Minnesotans since its inception. This bill will help provide uniformity for the courts across the state and give peace of mind to current and future participants who rely on this life-saving service.”
