A bill for an act
relating to transportation; appropriating money for certain reimbursements to
deputy registrars.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA:

Section 1. DEPUTY REGISTRAR REIMBURSEMENTS.

(a) $9,000,000 in fiscal year 2018 is appropriated from the special revenue fund to the
commissioner of management and budget for grants to deputy registrars under Minnesota
Statutes, section 168.33. Of this amount, $6,000,000 is from the driver services operating
account and $3,000,000 is from the vehicle services operating account. This is a onetime
appropriation and is available in fiscal years 2018 and 2019.

(b) The reimbursement to each deputy registrar, as identified by Driver and Vehicle
Services designated office location number, is calculated as follows:

(1) 50 percent of available funds allocated proportionally based on (i) the number of
transactions where a filing fee under Minnesota Statutes, section 168.33, subdivision 7, is
retained by each deputy registrar from August 1, 2017, through January 31, 2018, compared
to (ii) the total number of transactions where a filing fee is retained by all deputy registrars
during that time period; and

(2) 50 percent of available funds, or 100 percent of available funds if there is insufficient
data to perform the calculation under clause (1), allocated proportionally based on (i) the
number of transactions where a filing fee is retained by each deputy registrar from July 1,
2014, through June 30, 2017, compared to (ii) the total number of transactions where a filing
fee is retained by all deputy registrars during that time period.

(c) For a deputy registrar appointed after July 1, 2014, the commissioner of management
and budget must identify whether a corresponding discontinued deputy registrar appointment
exists. If a corresponding discontinued deputy registrar is identified, the commissioner must
include the transactions of the discontinued deputy registrar in the calculations under
paragraph (b) for the deputy registrar appointed after July 1, 2014.

(d) For a deputy registrar appointed after July 1, 2014, for which paragraph (c) does not
apply, the commissioner of management and budget must calculate that deputy registrar's
proportional share under paragraph (b), clause (2), based on the average number of
transactions where a filing fee is retained among the deputy registrars, as calculated excluding
any deputy registrars for which this paragraph applies.

(e) In the calculations under paragraph (b), the commissioner of management and budget
must exclude transactions for a deputy registrar office operated by the state. A deputy
registrar office operated by the state is not eligible to receive funds under this section.

(f) The commissioner of public safety must provide information as necessary for
calculations under this section to the commissioner of management and budget.

(g) The commissioner of management and budget must make efforts to reimburse deputy
registrars within 30 days of the effective date of this section. The commissioner must use
existing resources to administer the reimbursements.

EFFECTIVE DATE.

This section is effective June 1, 2018.
