off-road vehicle account for off-road vehicle
touring routes and trails. Of this amount:

(1) $200,000 is for a contract with a project
administrator to assist the commissioner in
planning, designing, and providing a system
of state touring routes and trails for off-road
vehicles by identifying sustainable, legal
routes suitable for licensed four-wheel drive
vehicles and a system of recreational trails for
registered off-road vehicles. Any portion of
this appropriation not used for the project
administrator is available for signage or
promotion and implementation of the system.
This is a onetime appropriation.

(2) $200,000 is for a contract and related work
to prepare a comprehensive, statewide,
strategic master plan for off-road vehicle
touring routes and trails. This is a onetime
appropriation and is available until June 30,
2022. Any portion of this appropriation not
used for the master plan is returned to the
off-road vehicle account. At a minimum, the
plan must: identify opportunities to develop
or enhance new, high-quality, comprehensive
touring routes and trails for off-road vehicles
in a system that serves regional and tourist
destinations; enhance connectivity with
touring routes and trails for off-road vehicles;
provide opportunities for promoting economic
development in greater Minnesota; help people
connect with the outdoors in a safe and
environmentally sustainable manner; create
new and support existing opportunities for
social, economic, and cultural benefits and
meaningful and mutually beneficial
relationships for users of off-road vehicles and
the communities that host trails for off-road
vehicles; and promote cooperation with local,
state, tribal, and federal governments;
organizations; and other interested partners.

(3) $200,000 is to share the cost by
reimbursing federal, tribal, state, county, and
township entities for additional needs on roads
under their jurisdiction when the needs are a
result of increased use by off-road vehicles
and are attributable to a border-to-border
touring route established by the commissioner.
This paragraph applies to roads that are
operated by a public road authority as defined
in Minnesota Statutes, section 160.02,
subdivision 25
. This is a onetime appropriation
and is available until June 30, 2023. To be
eligible for reimbursement under this
paragraph, the claimant must demonstrate that:
the needs result from additional traffic
generated by the border-to-border touring
route; and increased use attributable to a
border-to-border touring route has caused at
least a 50 percent increase in maintenance
costs for roads under the claimant's
jurisdiction, based on a ten-year maintenance
average. The commissioner may accept an
alternative to the ten-year maintenance average
if a jurisdiction does not have sufficient
maintenance records. The commissioner has
discretion to accept an alternative based on a
good-faith effort by the jurisdiction. Any
alternative should include baseline
maintenance costs for at least two years before
the year the route begins operating. The
ten-year maintenance average or any
alternative must be calculated from the years
immediately preceding the year the route
begins operating. Before reimbursing a claim
under this paragraph, the commissioner must
consider whether the claim is consistent with
claims made by other entities that administer
roads on the touring route, in terms of the
amount requested for reimbursement and the
frequency of claims made.

the guidelines of the Fish Health Blue Book or the Diagnostic Manual for Aquatic Animal
Diseases. The commissioner may, by written order published in the State Register, prescribe
alternative testing time periods and methods from those prescribed in the Fish Health Blue
Book or the OIE Diagnostic Manual if the commissioner determines that biosecurity measures

the Fish Health Blue Book or the Diagnostic Manual for Aquatic Animal Diseases by a
person certified as a fish health inspector.

by the commissioner. This inspection may include the collection of stock for purposes of
pathological analysis. Sample size necessary for analysis will follow guidelines listed in
the Fish Health Blue Book or the Diagnostic Manual for Aquatic Animal Diseases.

(g) Salmonids, catfish, or species on the VHS susceptible list must have a fish health
inspection before being transported from a containment facility, unless the fish are being
transported directly to an outlet for processing or other food purposes or unless the
commissioner determines that an inspection is not needed. A fish health inspection conducted
for this purpose need only be done on the lot or lots of fish that will be transported. The
commissioner must conduct a fish health inspection requested for this purpose within five
working days of receiving written notice. Salmonids and catfish may be immediately
transported from a containment facility to another containment facility once a sample has
been obtained for a health inspection or once the five-day notice period has expired.

Permanent school fund authority; reporting.

(a) The commissioner of

sections 92.122 and 127A.31. The commissioner shall deleted text beginbiannuallydeleted text endnew text begin bienniallynew text end report to the

the school trust lands that shows how the commissioner has and will continue to achieve
the following goals:

(1) manage the school trust lands efficiently and in a manner that reflects the undivided

(2) reduce the management expenditures of school trust lands and maximize the revenues
deposited in the permanent school trust fund;

(3) manage the sale, exchange, and commercial leasing of school trust lands, requiring
returns of not less than fair market value, to maximize the revenues deposited in the
permanent school trust fund and retain the value from the long-term appreciation of the
school trust lands;

(4) manage the school trust lands to maximize the long-term economic return for the
permanent school trust fund while maintaining sound natural resource conservation and
management principles;

(5) optimize school trust land revenues and maximize the value of the trust consistent
with balancing short-term and long-term interests, so that long-term benefits are not lost in
an effort to maximize short-term gains; and

(6) maintain the integrity of the trust and prevent the misapplication of its lands and its
revenues.

(b) When the commissioner finds an irresolvable conflict between maximizing the
long-term economic return and protecting natural resources and recreational values on
school trust lands, the commissioner shall give precedence to the long-term economic return
in managing school trust lands. By July 1, 2018, the permanent school fund must be
compensated for all school trust lands included under a designation or policy provision that
prohibits long-term economic return. The commissioner shall submit recommendations to
the appropriate legislative committees and divisions on methods of funding for the
compensation required under this paragraph, including recommendations for appropriations
from the general fund, nongeneral funds, and the state bond fund. Any uncompensated
designation or policy provision restrictions on the long-term economic return on school
trust lands remaining after July 1, 2018, must be compiled and submitted to the Legislative
Permanent School Fund Commission for review.

(c) By December 31, 2013, the report required under paragraph (a) must provide an
inventory and identification of all school trust lands that are included under a designation
or policy provision that prohibits long-term economic return. The report must include a plan
to compensate the permanent school fund through the purchase or exchange of the lands or
a plan to manage the school trust land to generate long-term economic return to the permanent
school fund. Subsequent reports under paragraph (a) must include a status report of the
commissioner's progress in maximizing the long-term economic return on lands identified
in the 2013 report.

(d) When management practices, policies, or designations by the commissioner diminish
or prohibit the long-term economic return on school trust land, the conflict must be resolved
as provided in section 92.122.
