ST. PAUL, MN (AP) - Gov. Mark Dayton won't be fined by Minnesota regulators for failing to account in timely fashion for his use of the state plane on political trips.
In forgoing a fine, the Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board ruled Tuesday that the reporting violation was inadvertent and has since been corrected. Dayton's campaign has provided updated payment information about trips he took last year that involved political campaigning.
A Republican-affiliated group, the Minnesota Jobs Coalition, made the complaint that led to the board's probe. Dayton reported the costs of some political travel later than it was required and didn't include two trips that had a political component until recently.
On swings that combine official business and politics, Dayton's campaign must reimburse the state for the proportion of trips involving campaign activity.
