determines that a balance remains in
the state airports fund following the
appropriations made in this article, and that
the appropriations made are insufficient
for advancing airport development and

the balance in the state airports fund, is
appropriated in each year to the commissioner
and must be spent according to Minnesota
Statutes, section 360.305, subdivision
4. Within two weeks of a determination
under this contingent appropriation, the
commissioner of transportation shall notify
the commissioner of management and budget
and the chairs and ranking minority members
of the legislative committees with jurisdiction
over transportation finance concerning funds
