A handful of new Minnesota laws will take effect when the new year begins on Tuesday.

The St. Cloud Times highlights a new requirement that extended warranties on computers or cell phones must be sold separately, not as part of a package deal.

MPR notes that school buses will be required to have a crossing control arm on the right front bumper that automatically extends whenever the bus is stopped.
