ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Gov. Mark Dayton says Minnesotans will find life simpler after a so-called "Unsession" that wiped more than 1,000 outdated laws off the books.

1,175 laws, to be exact.

Dayton and other administration officials gave a scorecard Tuesday on their efforts to purge outdated laws. Tony Sertich, commissioner of the Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board, was Dayton's point man on the effort. Sertich said Minnesotans should notice better customer service when they deal with state government.

Sertich says they'll save time and money, too.

Many changes might be seen as trivial, such as one that eliminated a misdemeanor charge for someone who carries fruit in an illegal-sized container.
