Subdivision 1.

Adoption of code.

Subject to sections 16B.59 to 16B.75, the
commissioner shall by rule new text beginand in consultation with the Construction Codes Advisory
Council
new text endestablish a code of standards for the construction, reconstruction, alteration, and
repair of buildings, governing matters of structural materials, design and construction,
fire protection, health, sanitation, and safety, including design and construction standards
regarding heat loss control, illumination, and climate control. The code must also include
duties and responsibilities for code administration, including procedures for administrative
action, penalties, and suspension and revocation of certification. The code must conform
insofar as practicable to model building codes generally accepted and in use throughout
the United States, including a code for building conservation. In the preparation of the
code, consideration must be given to the existing statewide specialty codes presently in
use in the state. Model codes with necessary modifications and statewide specialty codes
may be adopted by reference. The code must be based on the application of scientific
principles, approved tests, and professional judgment. To the extent possible, the code
must be adopted in terms of desired results instead of the means of achieving those results,
avoiding wherever possible the incorporation of specifications of particular methods or
materials. To that end the code must encourage the use of new methods and new materials.
Except as otherwise provided in sections 16B.59 to 16B.75, the commissioner shall
administer and enforce the provisions of those sections.

The commissioner shall develop rules addressing the plan review fee assessed
to similar buildings without significant modifications including provisions for use of
building systems as specified in the industrial/modular program specified in section
16B.75. Additional plan review fees associated with similar plans must be based on costs
commensurate with the direct and indirect costs of the service.

Subd. 1a.

Administration by commissioner.

The commissioner shall administer
and enforce the State Building Code as a municipality with respect to public buildings and
state licensed facilities in the state. The commissioner shall establish appropriate permit,

facilities. deleted text beginFees and surcharges for public buildings and state licensed facilities must be

deleted text end

Municipalities other than the state having an agreement with the commissioner
for code administration and enforcement service for public buildings and state licensed
facilities shall charge their customary fees, including surcharge, to be paid directly to the
jurisdiction by the applicant seeking authorization to construct a public building or a state
licensed facility. The commissioner shall sign an agreement with a municipality other than
the state for plan review, code administration, and code enforcement service for public
buildings and state licensed facilities in the jurisdiction if the building officials of the
municipality meet the requirements of section 16B.65 and wish to provide those services
and if the commissioner determines that the municipality has enough adequately trained
and qualified building inspectors to provide those services for the construction project.

The commissioner may direct the state building official to assist a community that
has been affected by a natural disaster with building evaluation and other activities related
to building codes.

Administration and enforcement in a municipality under this section must apply
any optional provisions of the State Building Code adopted by the municipality. A
municipality adopting any optional code provision shall notify the state building official
within 30 days of its adoption.

The commissioner shall administer and enforce the provisions of the code relating to
elevators statewide, except as provided for under section 16B.747, subdivision 3.

Sec. 13.

Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 16B.70, is amended to read:


16B.70 SURCHARGE.

Subdivision 1.

Computation.

To defray the costs of administering sections
16B.59 to 16B.76, a surcharge is imposed on all permits issued by municipalities in
connection with the construction of or addition or alteration to buildings and equipment or
appurtenances after June 30, 1971. The commissioner may use any surplus in surcharge
receipts to award grants for code research and development and education.

If the fee for the permit issued is fixed in amount the surcharge is equivalent to
one-half mill (.0005) of the fee or 50 cents, whichever amount is greater. For all other
permits, the surcharge is as follows:

(1) if the valuation of the structure, addition, or alteration is $1,000,000 or less, the
surcharge is equivalent to one-half mill (.0005) of the valuation of the structure, addition,
or alteration;

(2) if the valuation is greater than $1,000,000, the surcharge is $500 plus two-fifths
mill (.0004) of the value between $1,000,000 and $2,000,000;

(3) if the valuation is greater than $2,000,000, the surcharge is $900 plus three-tenths
mill (.0003) of the value between $2,000,000 and $3,000,000;

(4) if the valuation is greater than $3,000,000, the surcharge is $1,200 plus one-fifth
mill (.0002) of the value between $3,000,000 and $4,000,000;

(5) if the valuation is greater than $4,000,000, the surcharge is $1,400 plus one-tenth
mill (.0001) of the value between $4,000,000 and $5,000,000; and

(6) if the valuation exceeds $5,000,000, the surcharge is $1,500 plus one-twentieth
mill (.00005) of the value that exceeds $5,000,000.

Subd. 2.

Collection and reports.

All permit surcharges must be collected by each
municipality and a portion of them remitted to the state. Each municipality having a
population greater than 20,000 people shall prepare and submit to the commissioner once
a month a report of fees and surcharges on fees collected during the previous month
but shall retain the greater of two percent or that amount collected up to $25 to apply
against the administrative expenses the municipality incurs in collecting the surcharges.
All other municipalities shall submit the report and surcharges on fees once a quarter
but shall retain the greater of four percent or that amount collected up to $25 to apply
against the administrative expenses the municipalities incur in collecting the surcharges.
The report, which must be in a form prescribed by the commissioner, must be submitted
together with a remittance covering the surcharges collected by the 15th day following
the month or quarter in which the surcharges are collected. deleted text beginAll money collected by the
commissioner through surcharges and other fees prescribed by sections 16B.59 to 16B.75
shall be deposited in the state government special revenue fund and is appropriated to the
commissioner for the purpose of administering and enforcing the State Building Code
under sections 16B.59 to 16B.75.
deleted text end

Subd. 3.

Revenue to equal costs.

Revenue received from the surcharge imposed
in subdivision 1 should approximately equal the cost, including the overhead cost, of
administering sections 16B.59 to 16B.75. By November 30 each year, the commissioner
must report to the commissioner of finance and to the legislature on changes in the
surcharge imposed in subdivision 1 needed to comply with this policy. In making this
report, the commissioner must assume that the services associated with administering
sections 16B.59 to 16B.75 will continue to be provided at the same level provided during
the fiscal year in which the report is made.
