115A.1314 MANUFACTURER'S REGISTRATION FEE; CREATION OF
ACCOUNT
.

Subdivision 1.

Registration fee.

(a) Each manufacturer who registers under section
115A.1312 must, by September 1, 2007, and each year thereafter, pay to the commissioner
of revenue an annual registration fee. The commissioner of revenue must deposit the
fee in the account established in subdivision 2 state treasury and credit the fee to the
environmental fund
.

(b) The registration fee for the initial program year during which a manufacturer's
video display devices are sold to households is $5,000. Each year thereafter,
The
registration fee is equal to a base fee of $2,500, plus a variable recycling fee calculated
according to the formula:

((A x B) - (C + D)) x E, where:

(1) A = the number of pounds of a manufacturer's video display devices sold to
households during the previous program year, as reported to the department under section
115A.1316, subdivision 1;

(2) B = the proportion of sales of video display devices required to be recycled, set at
0.6 for the first program year and 0.8 for the second program year and every year thereafter;

(3) C = the number of pounds of covered electronic devices recycled by a
manufacturer from households during the previous program year, as reported to the
department under section 115A.1316, subdivision 1;

(4) D = the number of recycling credits a manufacturer elects to use to calculate the
variable recycling fee, as reported to the department under section 115A.1316, subdivision
1; and

(5) E = the estimated per-pound cost of recycling, initially set at $0.50 per pound for
manufacturers who recycle less than 50 percent of the product (A x B); $0.40 per pound
for manufacturers who recycle at least 50 percent but less than 90 percent of the product
(A x B); and $0.30 per pound for manufacturers who recycle at least 90 percent but less
than 100 percent of the product (A x B).

(c) If, as specified in paragraph (b), the term C - (A x B) equals a positive number of
pounds, that amount is defined as the manufacturer's recycling credits. A manufacturer
may retain recycling credits to be added, in whole or in part, to the actual value of C, as
reported under section 115A.1316, subdivision 2, during any succeeding program year,
provided that no more than 25 percent of a manufacturer's obligation (A x B) for any
program year may be met with recycling credits generated in a prior program year. A
manufacturer may sell any portion or all of its recycling credits to another manufacturer, at
a price negotiated by the parties, who may use the credits in the same manner.

(d) For the purpose of calculating a manufacturer's variable recycling fee under
paragraph (b), the weight of covered electronic devices collected from households located
outside the 11-county metropolitan area, as defined in subdivision 2, paragraph (c), is
calculated at 1.5 times their actual weight.

(e) The registration fee for the initial program year and the base registration fee
thereafter for a manufacturer who produces fewer than 100 video display devices for sale
annually to households is $1,250.

Subd. 2.

Creation of account; appropriations Use of registration fees.

(a) The
electronic waste account is established in the environmental fund. The commissioner of
revenue must deposit receipts from the fee established in subdivision 1 in the account.
Any interest earned on the account must be credited to the account. Money from other
sources may be credited to the account. Beginning in the second program year and
continuing each program year thereafter, as of the last day of each program year, the
commissioner shall determine the total amount of the variable fees that were collected. To
the extent that the total fees collected by the commissioner in connection with this section
exceed the amount the commissioner determines necessary to operate the program for the
new program year, the commissioner shall refund on a pro rata basis, to all manufacturers
who paid any fees for the previous program year, the amount of fees collected by the
commissioner in excess of the amount necessary to operate the program for the new
program year. No individual refund is required of amounts of $100 or less for a fiscal
year. Manufacturers who report collections less than 50 percent of their obligation for
the previous program year are not eligible for a refund.

(b) Until June 30, 2011, money in the account is annually appropriated to the
Pollution Control Agency:
(a) Registration fees may be used by the commissioner for:

(1) for the purpose of implementing sections 115A.1312 to 115A.1330, including
transfer to the commissioner of revenue to carry out the department's duties under
section 115A.1320, subdivision 2, and transfer to the commissioner of administration for
responsibilities under section 115A.1324; and

(2) to the commissioner of the Pollution Control Agency to be distributed on
a competitive basis through contracts with
grants to counties outside the 11-county
metropolitan area, as defined in paragraph (c) (b), and with to private entities that collect
for recycling covered electronic devices in counties outside the 11-county metropolitan
area, where the collection and recycling is consistent with the respective county's solid
waste plan, for the purpose of carrying out the activities under sections 115A.1312 to
115A.1330. In awarding competitive grants under this clause, the commissioner must
give preference to counties and private entities that are working cooperatively with
manufacturers to help them meet their recycling obligations under section 115A.1318,
subdivision 1
.

(c) (b) The 11-county metropolitan area consists of the counties of Anoka, Carver,
Chisago, Dakota, Hennepin, Isanti, Ramsey, Scott, Sherburne, Washington, and Wright.

Minnesota Statutes 2010, section 116D.04, subdivision 2a, as amended by
Laws 2011, chapter 4, section 6, is amended to read:


Subd. 2a.

When prepared.

Where there is potential for significant environmental
effects resulting from any major governmental action, the action shall be preceded by a
detailed environmental impact statement prepared by the responsible governmental unit.
The environmental impact statement shall be an analytical rather than an encyclopedic
document which describes the proposed action in detail, analyzes its significant
environmental impacts, discusses appropriate alternatives to the proposed action and
their impacts, and explores methods by which adverse environmental impacts of an
action could be mitigated. The environmental impact statement shall also analyze those
economic, employment and sociological effects that cannot be avoided should the action
be implemented. To ensure its use in the decision-making process, the environmental
impact statement shall be prepared as early as practical in the formulation of an action.
No mandatory environmental impact statement may be required for an ethanol plant,
as defined in section 41A.09, subdivision 2a, paragraph (b), that produces less than
125,000,000 gallons of ethanol annually and is located outside of the seven-county
metropolitan area.

(a) The board shall by rule establish categories of actions for which environmental
impact statements and for which environmental assessment worksheets shall be prepared
as well as categories of actions for which no environmental review is required under this
section. A mandatory environmental assessment worksheet shall not be required for the
expansion of an ethanol plant, as defined in section 41A.09, subdivision 2a, paragraph
(b), or the conversion of an ethanol plant to a biobutanol facility or the expansion of a
biobutanol facility, as defined in section 41A.105, subdivision 1a, based on the capacity
of the expanded or converted facility to produce alcohol fuel, but must be required if
the ethanol plant meets or exceeds thresholds of other categories of actions for which
environmental assessment worksheets must be prepared. The responsible governmental
unit for an ethanol plant project for which an environmental assessment worksheet is
prepared shall be the state agency with the greatest responsibility for supervising or
approving the project as a whole.

(b) The responsible governmental unit shall promptly publish notice of the
completion of an environmental assessment worksheet in a manner to be determined by
the board and shall provide copies of the environmental assessment worksheet to the board
and its member agencies. Comments on the need for an environmental impact statement
may be submitted to the responsible governmental unit during a 30-day period following
publication of the notice that an environmental assessment worksheet has been completed.
The responsible governmental unit's decision on the need for an environmental impact
statement shall be based on the environmental assessment worksheet and the comments
received during the comment period, and shall be made within 15 days after the close of
the comment period. The board's chair may extend the 15-day period by not more than 15
additional days upon the request of the responsible governmental unit.

(c) An environmental assessment worksheet shall also be prepared for a proposed
action whenever material evidence accompanying a petition by not less than 25 100
individuals who reside or own property in the county or an adjoining county where the
proposed action will be located
, submitted before the proposed project has received final
approval by the appropriate governmental units, demonstrates that, because of the nature
or location of a proposed action, there may be potential for significant environmental
effects. Petitions requesting the preparation of an environmental assessment worksheet
shall be submitted to the board. The chair of the board shall determine the appropriate
responsible governmental unit and forward the petition to it. A decision on the need for
an environmental assessment worksheet shall be made by the responsible governmental
unit within 15 days after the petition is received by the responsible governmental unit.
The board's chair may extend the 15-day period by not more than 15 additional days upon
request of the responsible governmental unit.

(d) Except in an environmentally sensitive location where Minnesota Rules, part
4410.4300, subpart 29, item B, applies, the proposed action is exempt from environmental
review under this chapter and rules of the board, if:

(1) the proposed action is:

(i) an animal feedlot facility with a capacity of less than 1,000 animal units; or

(ii) an expansion of an existing animal feedlot facility with a total cumulative
capacity of less than 1,000 animal units;

(2) the application for the animal feedlot facility includes a written commitment by
the proposer to design, construct, and operate the facility in full compliance with Pollution
Control Agency feedlot rules; and

(3) the county board holds a public meeting for citizen input at least ten business
days prior to the Pollution Control Agency or county issuing a feedlot permit for the
animal feedlot facility unless another public meeting for citizen input has been held with
regard to the feedlot facility to be permitted. The exemption in this paragraph is in
addition to other exemptions provided under other law and rules of the board.

(e) The board may, prior to final approval of a proposed project, require preparation
of an environmental assessment worksheet by a responsible governmental unit selected
by the board for any action where environmental review under this section has not been
specifically provided for by rule or otherwise initiated.

(f) An early and open process shall be utilized to limit the scope of the environmental
impact statement to a discussion of those impacts, which, because of the nature or location
of the project, have the potential for significant environmental effects. The same process
shall be utilized to determine the form, content and level of detail of the statement as well
as the alternatives which are appropriate for consideration in the statement. In addition,
the permits which will be required for the proposed action shall be identified during the
scoping process. Further, the process shall identify those permits for which information
will be developed concurrently with the environmental impact statement. The board
shall provide in its rules for the expeditious completion of the scoping process. The
determinations reached in the process shall be incorporated into the order requiring the
preparation of an environmental impact statement.

(g) The responsible governmental unit shall, to the extent practicable, avoid
duplication and ensure coordination between state and federal environmental review
and between environmental review and environmental permitting. Whenever practical,
information needed by a governmental unit for making final decisions on permits or
other actions required for a proposed project shall be developed in conjunction with the
preparation of an environmental impact statement.

(h) An environmental impact statement shall be prepared and its adequacy
determined within 280 days after notice of its preparation unless the time is extended by
consent of the parties or by the governor for good cause. The responsible governmental
unit shall determine the adequacy of an environmental impact statement, unless within 60
days after notice is published that an environmental impact statement will be prepared,
the board chooses to determine the adequacy of an environmental impact statement. If an
environmental impact statement is found to be inadequate, the responsible governmental
unit shall have 60 days to prepare an adequate environmental impact statement.

(i) The proposer of a specific action may include in the information submitted to the
responsible governmental unit a preliminary draft environmental impact statement under
this section on that action for review, modification, and determination of completeness and
adequacy by the responsible governmental unit. A preliminary draft environmental impact
statement prepared by the project proposer and submitted to the responsible governmental
unit shall identify or include as an appendix all studies and other sources of information
used to substantiate the analysis contained in the preliminary draft environmental impact
statement. The responsible governmental unit shall require additional studies, if needed,
and obtain from the project proposer all additional studies and information necessary for
the responsible governmental unit to perform its responsibility to review, modify, and
determine the completeness and adequacy of the environmental impact statement.

facilities, industrial dischargers, wild rice harvesters, wild rice research experts, and
citizen organizations.

(d) After receiving the advice of the advisory group under paragraph (c), consultation
with the commissioner of natural resources, and review of all available scientific
research on water quality and other environmental impacts on the growth of wild rice,
the commissioner of the Pollution Control Agency shall adopt and implement a wild
rice research plan using the money appropriated to contract with appropriate scientific
experts. The commissioner shall periodically review the results of the research with the
commissioner of natural resources and the advisory group.

(e) To the extent allowable under the federal Clean Water Act, during the pendency
of the rule amendment described in paragraph (a), the Pollution Control Agency, with
respect to permits issued for the discharge of wastewater, shall exercise its powers
under Minnesota Statutes, section 115.03, subdivision 1, paragraph (e), to enter into
schedules of compliance to ensure that no permittee is required to expend funds for design
and implementation of sulfate treatment technologies until after the rule amendment
is complete. Nothing shall prevent the Pollution Control Agency from including in a
schedule of compliance a requirement to monitor sulfate concentrations in discharges and,
if appropriate, based on site-specific conditions, a requirement to implement a sulfate
minimization plan to avoid or minimize sulfate concentrations during periods when wild
rice may be susceptible to damage.

(f) To the extent that the commissioner of the Pollution Control Agency determines
that provisions of the federal Clean Water Act or other federal laws limits full
implementation of paragraph (e), the commissioner shall fully exercise the agency's
authority under state and federal law and regulations to ensure, to the fullest extent
possible, that no permittee is required to expend funds for design and implementation of
sulfate treatment technologies until after the rule amendment described in paragraph
(a) is complete. If the commissioner determines that amendments to Minnesota Rules
are necessary to ensure that no permittee is required to expend funds for design and
implementation of sulfate treatment technologies until after the rule amendment described
in paragraph (a) is complete, the commissioner may use the good cause exemption under
Minnesota Statutes, section 14.388, subdivision 1, clause (3), to adopt rules necessary to
implement this section, and Minnesota Statutes, section 14.386, does not apply, except as
provided in Minnesota Statutes, section 14.388.

(g) Upon completion of the rule amendment described in paragraph (a), the Pollution
Control Agency shall modify the discharge limits in the affected wastewater discharge
permits to reflect the new standards in accordance with state and federal regulations and
shall exercise its powers to enter into schedules of compliance in the permits.

(h) By December 15, 2011, the commissioner of the Pollution Control Agency
shall submit a report to the chairs and ranking minority members of the environment and
natural resources committees of the house of representatives and senate on the status
of implementation of this section. The report must include an estimated timeline for
completion of the wild rice research plan and initiation and completion of the formal
rulemaking process under Minnesota Statutes, chapter 14.

(i) To the extent allowable under the federal Clean Water Act, until the rule
amendment described in paragraph (a) is finally adopted, the agency shall suspend the
standard for sulfate for class 4 waters.

EFFECTIVE DATE.

This section is effective the day following final enactment.

Sec. 48. WATER RULEMAKING LEGISLATIVE REVIEW.

Until June 30, 2013, all proposed rules related to water quality or water resource
protection must be consistent with other local, state, and federal rules, and must be able
to achieve the legislatively intended outcome as effectively and efficiently as possible.
To ensure that all proposed rules satisfy this legislative policy, the proposed rules must
be submitted to the Legislative Coordinating Commission prior to the filing of the notice
of intent to adopt. The agency submitting the proposed rule shall provide the following
information:

(1) an explanation of how the proposed rule is consistent with other water-related
rules; and

(2) a statement from other affected agencies that they do not object to the proposed
rule being inconsistent or contrary to any existing rule and accept the proposing agency's
jurisdiction over the subject matter of the proposed rule.

Within 60 days of receipt of the proposed water-related rule, the commission may
notify the agency proposing the rule that the commission agrees that the rule does not
comply with the legislative policy, that rules are not consistent with all other water-related
rules, or the agency is not the appropriate authority for jurisdiction over the proposed rules.

Sec. 49. INTEREST IN LANDS EXTENDED.

Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, Dakota County's reversionary interests in
lands deeded by Dakota County to the state of Minnesota, as contemplated by Laws 1975,
chapter 382, and currently maintained and used for the purposes of a state zoological
garden in Apple Valley, Minnesota, to wit, those lands described in documents recorded in
the Dakota County Property Records Office as Document No. 433980 and Document No.
439719, excluding lands subject to that certain quit claim deed recorded as Document No.
1246646 and excluding lands subject to that certain quit claim deed recorded as Document
No. 1330383, are extended and remain permanently valid and operative.

EFFECTIVE DATE.

This section is effective upon compliance by the Dakota
County Board of Commissioners with the provisions of Minnesota Statutes, section
645.021.

Sec. 50. EVALUATION REQUIRED.

(a) The Department of Administration shall evaluate state and local water-related
programs, policies, and permits to make recommendations for cost savings, increased
productivity, and the elimination of duplication among public agencies.

(b) The evaluation must:

(1) identify current rules relating to surface and groundwater, including those related
to storm water, residential, industrial, and agricultural use, shorelands, floodplains, wild
and scenic rivers, wetlands, feedlots, and subsurface sewage treatment systems, and for
each rule specify:

(i) the statutory authority;

(ii) intended outcomes;

(iii) the cost to state and local government and the private sector; and

(iv) the relationship of the rule to other local, state, and federal rules;

(2) assess the pros and cons of alternative approaches to implementing water-related
programs, policies, and permits, including local, state, and regional-based approaches;

(3) identify inconsistencies and redundancy between local, state, and federal rules;

(4) identify means to coordinate rulemaking and implementation so as to achieve
intended outcomes more effectively and efficiently;

(5) identify a rule assessment and evaluation process for determining whether each
identified rule should be continued or repealed;

(6) rely on scientific, peer-reviewed data, including the studies of the National
Academy of Sciences;

(7) evaluate current responsibilities of the Pollution Control Agency, Department of
Natural Resources, Board of Water and Soil Resources, Environmental Quality Board,
Department of Agriculture, and Department of Health for developing and implementing
water-related programs, policies, and permits and make recommendations for reallocating
responsibilities among the agencies; and

(8) assess the current role of the clean water fund in supporting water-related
programs and policies and make recommendations for allocating resources among the
agencies that collaborate and partner in spending the clean water fund consistent with
the other recommendations of the study.

(c) The commissioner of administration must submit the study results and make
recommendations to agencies listed under paragraph (a) and to the chairs and ranking
minority party members of the senate and house of representatives committees having
primary jurisdiction over environment and natural resources policy and finance no later
than January 15, 2012.
