1.1 A bill for an act 1.2 relating to health; modifying the allocation of family 1.3 planning special projects grants; authorizing 1.4 rulemaking; amending Minnesota Statutes 2000, section 1.5 145.925, subdivision 9, by adding a subdivision. 1.6 BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 1.7 Section 1. Minnesota Statutes 2000, section 145.925, is 1.8 amended by adding a subdivision to read: 1.9 Subd. 8a. [GRANTS FOR NATURAL FAMILY PLANNING.] The 1.10 commissioner must allocate family planning special projects 1.11 grant funds under this subdivision before making any other 1.12 allocations under this section or Minnesota Rules, parts 1.13 4700.1900 to 4700.2500. Each grant cycle, the commissioner 1.14 shall allocate at least ten percent of the funds available for 1.15 that grant cycle to organizations that provide natural family 1.16 planning services and provide no other type of family planning 1.17 services. The commissioner shall by rule establish criteria to 1.18 evaluate applications for grants under this subdivision and 1.19 shall not evaluate applications under this subdivision using the 1.20 service components and criteria in Minnesota Rules, part 1.21 4700.2210 or 4700.2300. The criteria used to evaluate 1.22 applications under this subdivision must be narrowly tailored to 1.23 evaluate the need for natural family planning services in the 1.24 grant applicant's geographic area and the grant applicant's 1.25 effectiveness in providing natural family planning services. 2.1 Sec. 2. Minnesota Statutes 2000, section 145.925, 2.2 subdivision 9, is amended to read: 2.3 Subd. 9. [AMOUNT OF GRANT; RULES.] This subdivision 2.4 applies to the allocation of grant funds remaining after the 2.5 allocation of grant funds under subdivision 8a. Notwithstanding 2.6 any rules to the contrary, including rules proposed in the State 2.7 Register on April 1, 1991, the commissioner, in allocating grant 2.8 funds for family planning special projects, shall not limit the 2.9 total amount of funds that can be allocated to an organization. 2.10 The commissioner shall allocate to an organization receiving 2.11 grant funds on July 1, 1997, at least the same amount of grant 2.12 funds for the 1998 to 1999 grant cycle as the organization 2.13 received for the 1996 to 1997 grant cycle, provided the 2.14 organization submits an application that meets grant funding 2.15 criteria. This subdivision does not affect any procedure 2.16 established in rule for allocating special project money to the 2.17 different regions. The commissioner shall revise the rules for 2.18 family planning special project grants so that they conform to 2.19 the requirements of this subdivision. In adopting these 2.20 revisions, the commissioner is not subject to the rulemaking 2.21 provisions of chapter 14, but is bound by section 14.386, 2.22 paragraph (a), clauses (1) and (3). Section 14.386, paragraph 2.23 (b), does not apply to these rules.
