At training camp on Wednesday, the Vikings demonstrated the NFL’s new bag policy. In an effort to ensure stadium safety, NFL teams are limiting the size and the type of bags that can be brought in. There are three types: a clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC bag that does not exceed 12 inches by six inches by 12 inches. Screeners will then easily be able to see if fans are carrying prohibited items.
The New Year is also the start of a new law for the tattoo industry in Minnesota. Businesses and each tattoo artist must now be licensed with the State Health Department. This past summer, the state sent out a packet, notifying businesses of the upcoming changes.
