federal disaster assistance to state agencies and political subdivisions under section
12A.15, subdivision 1, when the legislature is not in regular or special session. The amount
appropriated is 60 percent of any state and local match required under the presidential
declaration of a major disaster. Money appropriated under this subdivision is not available
for expenditure until the commissioner of management and budget certifies that eligible
local units of government have pledged the remaining forty percent of required match
funds. The commissioner may use money appropriated under this subdivision to match
federal disaster assistance for publicly owned capital improvement projects.
