(1) the distribution to applicants of forms provided by the Pollution Control Agency;

(2) the receipt and examination of completed application forms, and the certification,

following year. A district using an excess amount in the debt redemption fund to retire the
certificates or notes shall report the amount used for this purpose to the commissioner by
July 15 of the following fiscal year. A district having an outstanding capital loan under

Subdivision 1.

Permit authorities; restrictions.

(a) The commissioner, with respect to
highways under the commissioner's jurisdiction, and local authorities, with respect to
highways under their jurisdiction, may, in their discretion, upon application in writing and
good cause being shown therefor, issue a special permit, in writing, authorizing the applicant
to move a vehicle or combination of vehicles of a size or weight of vehicle or load exceeding
the maximum specified in this chapter, exceeding the gross weight for which the vehicle is
registered under chapter 168, or otherwise not in conformity with the provisions of this
chapter, upon any highway under the jurisdiction of the party granting such permit and for
the maintenance of which such party is responsible.

(b) Permits relating to over-width, over-length manufactured homes shall not be issued
to persons other than manufactured home dealers or manufacturers for movement of new
units owned by the manufactured home dealer or manufacturer, until the person has presented
a statement from the county auditor and treasurer where the unit is presently located, stating
that all personal and real property taxes have been paid. Upon payment of the most recent
single year delinquent personal property or current year taxes only, the county auditor or
treasurer must issue a taxes paid statement to a manufactured home dealer or a financial
institution desiring to relocate a manufactured home that has been repossessed. This statement
must be dated within 30 days of the contemplated move. The statement from the county
auditor and treasurer where the unit is presently located, stating that all personal and real
property taxes have been paid, may be made by telephone. If the statement is obtained by
telephone, the permit shall contain the date and time of the telephone call and the names of
the persons in the auditor's office and treasurer's office who verified that all personal and
real property taxes had been paid.

(c) The commissioner may not grant a permit authorizing the movement, in a three-vehicle
combination, of a semitrailer or trailer that exceeds 28-1/2 feet, except that the commissioner
(1) may renew a permit that was granted before April 16, 1984, for the movement of a
semitrailer or trailer that exceeds the length limitation in section 169.81, subdivision 2, or
(2) may grant a permit authorizing the transportation of empty trailers that exceed 28-1/2

in the city, or a town as to roads in the town, may issue permits authorizing the transportation
of combinations of vehicles exceeding the limitations in section 169.81, subdivisions 2a
and 3, over highways, streets, or roads within its boundaries. Combinations of vehicles
authorized by this paragraph may be restricted as to the use of state trunk highways by the
commissioner, to the use of streets by the city road authority, and to the use of roads by the
town road authority. Nothing in this paragraph or section 169.81, subdivisions 2a and 3,

Sec. 75.

Minnesota Statutes 2020, section 169.86, subdivision 5, is amended to read:


Subd. 5.

Fees; proceeds deposited; appropriation.

The commissioner, with respect to
highways under the commissioner's jurisdiction, may charge a fee for each permit issued.
The fee for an annual permit that expires by law on the date of the vehicle registration
expiration must be based on the proportion of the year that remains until the expiration date.
All fees for permits issued by the commissioner of transportation must be deposited as
provided in paragraph (i) and in section 174.525. Except for those annual permits for which
the permit fees are specified elsewhere in this chapter, the fees are:

(a) $15 for each single trip permit.

(b) $36 for each job permit. A job permit may be issued for like loads carried on a specific
route for a period not to exceed two months. "Like loads" means loads of the same product,
weight, and dimension.

(c) $60 for an annual permit to be issued for a period not to exceed 12 consecutive
months. Annual permits may be issued for:

(1) motor vehicles used to alleviate a temporary crisis adversely affecting the safety or
well-being of the public;

(2) motor vehicles that travel on interstate highways and carry loads authorized under
subdivision 1a;

(3) motor vehicles operating with gross weights authorized under section 169.826,
subdivision 1a
;

(4) special pulpwood vehicles described in section 169.863;

(5) motor vehicles bearing snowplow blades not exceeding ten feet in width;

(6) noncommercial transportation of a boat by the owner or user of the boat; and

(7) motor vehicles carrying bales of agricultural products authorized under section
169.862.

(d) $120 for an oversize annual permit to be issued for a period not to exceed 12
consecutive months. Annual permits may be issued for:

(1) mobile cranes;

(2) construction equipment, machinery, and supplies;

(3) manufactured homes and manufactured storage buildings;

(4) implements of husbandry;

(5) double-deck buses;

(6) commercial boat hauling and transporting waterfront structures, including, but not
limited to, portable boat docks and boat lifts; and

(7) three-vehicle combinations consisting of two empty, newly manufactured trailers
for cargo, horses, or livestock, not to exceed 28-1/2 feet per trailer; provided, however, the
permit allows the vehicles to be moved from a trailer manufacturer to a trailer dealer only
while operating on twin-trailer routes designated under section 169.81, subdivision 3,
paragraph (c).

(e) For vehicles that have axle weights exceeding the weight limitations of sections
169.823 to 169.829, an additional cost added to the fees listed above. However, this paragraph
applies to any vehicle described in section 168.013, subdivision 3, paragraph (b), but only
when the vehicle exceeds its gross weight allowance set forth in that paragraph, and then
the additional cost is for all weight, including the allowance weight, in excess of the permitted
maximum axle weight. The additional cost is equal to the product of the distance traveled
times the sum of the overweight axle group cost factors shown in the following chart:

The amounts added are rounded to the nearest cent for each axle or axle group. The additional
cost does not apply to paragraph (c), clauses (1) and (3).

For a vehicle found to exceed the appropriate maximum permitted weight, a cost-per-mile
fee of 22 cents per ton, or fraction of a ton, over the permitted maximum weight is imposed
in addition to the normal permit fee. Miles must be calculated based on the distance already
traveled in the state plus the distance from the point of detection to a transportation loading
site or unloading site within the state or to the point of exit from the state.

(f) As an alternative to paragraph (e), an annual permit may be issued for overweight,
or oversize and overweight, mobile cranes; construction equipment, machinery, and supplies;
implements of husbandry; and commercial boat hauling. The fees for the permit are as
follows:

under paragraph (e).

(g) For vehicles which exceed the width limitations set forth in section 169.80 by more
than 72 inches, an additional cost equal to $120 added to the amount in paragraph (a) when
the permit is issued while seasonal load restrictions pursuant to section 169.87 are in effect.

(h) $85 for an annual permit to be issued for a period not to exceed 12 months, for
refuse-compactor vehicles that carry a gross weight of not more than: 22,000 pounds on a
single rear axle; 38,000 pounds on a tandem rear axle; or, subject to section 169.828,
subdivision 2
, 46,000 pounds on a tridem rear axle. A permit issued for up to 46,000 pounds
on a tridem rear axle must limit the gross vehicle weight to not more than 62,000 pounds.

(i) $300 for a motor vehicle described in section 169.8261. The fee under this paragraph
must be deposited as follows:

(1) the first $50,000 in each fiscal year must be deposited in the trunk highway fund for
costs related to administering the permit program and inspecting and posting bridges; and

(2) all remaining money in each fiscal year must be deposited in the bridge inspection

structure, assessment tool, and level of need assessment under subdivision 18e. The local
agency's financial obligation is limited to funds provided by the state or federal government.

(k) The commissioner shall:

paragraph (m), clauses (1) to (7). The mileage rate for nonemergency medical transportation
services in areas defined under RUCA to be rural or super rural areas is:

rate in paragraph (m), clauses (1) to (7); and

(2) for a trip between 18 and 50 miles, equal to 112.5 percent of the respective mileage
rate in paragraph (m), clauses (1) to (7).

(o) For purposes of reimbursement rates for nonemergency medical transportation
services under paragraphs (m) and (n), the zip code of the recipient's place of residence
shall determine whether the urban, rural, or super rural reimbursement rate applies.

(p) For purposes of this subdivision, "rural urban commuting area" or "RUCA" means
a census-tract based classification system under which a geographical area is determined
to be urban, rural, or super rural.

(q) The commissioner, when determining reimbursement rates for nonemergency medical
transportation under paragraphs (m) and (n), shall exempt all modes of transportation listed
under paragraph (i) from Minnesota Rules, part 9505.0445, item R, subitem (2).

or in a zip code area of the city that is at least 50 percent higher than the average foreclosure
rate in the metropolitan area, as defined in section 473.121, subdivision 2, to use this special
levy. For purposes of this paragraph, "foreclosure rate" means the number of foreclosures,
as indicated by sheriff sales records, divided by the number of households in the city in
2007;

(19) to pay costs attributable to wages and benefits for sheriff, police, and fire personnel.
If a local governmental unit did not use this special levy in the previous year its levy limit
base under section 275.71 shall be reduced by the amount equal to the amount it levied for
the purposes specified in this clause in the previous year;

(20) an amount equal to any reductions in the certified aids or credit reimbursements
payable under sections 477A.011 to 477A.014, and section 273.1384, due to unallotment
under section 16A.152 or reductions under another provision of law. The amount of the
levy allowed under this clause for each year is limited to the amount unallotted or reduced
from the aids and credit reimbursements certified for payment in the year following the
calendar year in which the tax levy is certified unless the unallotment or reduction amount
is not known by September 1 of the levy certification year, and the local government has
not adjusted its levy under section 275.065, subdivision 6, or 275.07, subdivision 6, in which
case that unallotment or reduction amount may be levied in the following year;

facility or new expansion, either of which contains courts, corrections, dispatch, criminal
investigation labs, or other public safety facilities and for which all or a portion of the

equipment was issued or authorized prior to the imposition of levy limits. The levy limit
base shall then be increased by an amount equal to the new facility's first full year's operating
costs as described in this clause; and

(23) for the estimated amount of reduction to market value credit reimbursements under
section 273.1384 for credits payable in the year in which the levy is payable.

Subd. 2.

Blasting agent defined; explosives classified.

For the purposes of this section
and the rules adopted pursuant to this section:

(a) "Blasting agent" means any material or mixture, consisting of a fuel and oxidizer,
intended for blasting, not otherwise classified as an explosive and in which none of the
ingredients is classified as an explosive; providing that, the finished product, as mixed and
packaged for use or shipment, cannot be detonated by means of a number 8 test blasting
cap when unconfined. "Blasting agent" does not include flammable liquids or flammable
gases.

(b) "Explosive" means any chemical compound, mixture, or device, the primary or
common purpose of which is to function by explosion. The term includes, but is not limited
to, dynamite, black powder, pellet powder, initiating explosives, detonators, safety fuses,
squibs, detonating cord, igniter cord, igniters, display fireworks, and class 1.3G fireworks
(formerly classified as Class B special fireworks). "Explosive" includes any material
determined to be within the scope of United States Code, title 18, chapter 40, and also
includes any material classified as an explosive other than consumer fireworks, 1.4G (Class
C, Common), by the hazardous materials regulations of the United States Department of
Transportation (DOTn) in Code of Federal Regulations, title 49.

(c) Explosives are divided into four categories and are defined as follows:

(1) High explosive: explosive material, such as dynamite, that can be caused to detonate
by means of a number deleted text begineightdeleted text endnew text begin 8new text end test blasting cap when unconfined.

(2) Low explosive: explosive material that will burn or deflagrate when ignited,
characterized by a rate of reaction that is less than the speed of sound, including, but not
limited to, black powder, safety fuse, igniters, igniter cord, fuse lighters, class 1.3G fireworks
(formerly classified as Class B special fireworks), and class 1.3C propellants.

(3) Mass-detonating explosives: division 1.1, 1.2, and 1.5 explosives alone or in
combination, or loaded into various types of ammunition or containers, most of which can
be expected to explode virtually instantaneously when a small portion is subjected to fire,
severe concussion, impact, the impulse of an initiating agent, or the effect of a considerable
discharge of energy from without. Materials that react in this manner represent a mass
explosion hazard. Such an explosive will normally cause severe structural damage to adjacent
objects. Explosive propagation could occur immediately to other items of ammunition and
explosives stored sufficiently close to and not adequately protected from the initially
exploding pile with a time interval short enough so that two or more quantities must be
considered as one for quantity-distance purposes.

(4) United Nations/United States Department of Transportation (UN/DOTn) Class 1
explosives: the hazard class of explosives that further defines and categorizes explosives
under the current system applied by DOTn for all explosive materials into further divisions
as follows, with the letter G identifying the material as a pyrotechnic substance or article
containing a pyrotechnic substance and similar materials:

(i) Division 1.1 explosives have a mass explosion hazard. A mass explosion is one that
affects almost the entire load instantaneously.

(ii) Division 1.2 explosives have a projection hazard but not a mass explosion hazard.

(iii) Division 1.3 explosives have a fire hazard and either a minor blast hazard or a minor
projection hazard or both, but not a mass explosion hazard.

(iv) Division 1.4 explosives pose a minor explosion hazard. The explosive effects are
largely confined to the package and no projection of fragments of appreciable size or range
is to be expected. An external fire must not cause virtually instantaneous explosion of almost
the entire contents of the package.

(v) Division 1.5 explosives are very insensitive and are comprised of substances that
have a mass explosion hazard, but are so insensitive that there is very little probability of
initiation or of transition from burning to detonation under normal conditions of transport.

(vi) Division 1.6 explosives are extremely insensitive and do not have a mass explosion
hazard, comprised of articles that contain only extremely insensitive detonating substances
and that demonstrate a negligible probability of accidental initiation or propagation.

Sec. 154.

Minnesota Statutes 2020, section 353G.08, subdivision 1, is amended to read:


Subdivision 1.

Annual funding requirements; lump-sum retirement division.

(a)
Annually, the executive director shall determine the funding requirements of each account
in the lump-sum retirement division of the statewide volunteer firefighter plan on or before
August 1. The funding requirements computed under this subdivision must be determined
using a mathematical procedure developed and certified as accurate by the approved actuary
retained by the Public Employees Retirement Association and must be based on present
value factors using a six percent deleted text begininterestdeleted text endnew text begin investment returnnew text end rate, without any decrement
assumptions. The funding requirements must be certified to the entity or entities associated
with the fire department whose active firefighters are covered by the retirement plan.

(b) The overall funding balance of each lump-sum account for the current calendar year
must be determined in the following manner:

(1) The total accrued liability for all active and deferred members of the account as of
December 31 of the current year must be calculated based on the good time service credit
of active and deferred members as of that date.

(2) The total present assets of the account projected to December 31 of the current year,
including receipts by and disbursements from the account anticipated to occur on or before
December 31, must be calculated. To the extent possible, the market value of assets must
be utilized in making this calculation.

(3) The amount of the total present assets calculated under clause (2) must be subtracted
from the amount of the total accrued liability calculated under clause (1). If the amount of
total present assets exceeds the amount of the total accrued liability, then the account is
considered to have a surplus over full funding. If the amount of the total present assets is
less than the amount of the total accrued liability, then the account is considered to have a
deficit from full funding. If the amount of total present assets is equal to the amount of the
total accrued liability, then the special fund is considered to be fully funded.

(c) The financial requirements of each lump-sum account for the following calendar
year must be determined in the following manner:

(1) The total accrued liability for all active and deferred members of the account as of
December 31 of the calendar year next following the current calendar year must be calculated
based on the good time service used in the calculation under paragraph (b), clause (1),
increased by one year.

(2) The increase in the total accrued liability of the account for the following calendar
year over the total accrued liability of the account for the current year must be calculated.

(3) The amount of administrative expenses of the account must be calculated by
multiplying the per-person dollar amount of the administrative expenses for the most recent
prior calendar year by the number of active and deferred firefighters reported to PERA on
the most recent good time service credit certification form for each account.

(4) If the account is fully funded, the financial requirement of the account for the
following calendar year is the total of the amounts calculated under clauses (2) and (3).

(5) If the account has a deficit from full funding, the financial requirement of the account
for the following calendar year is the total of the amounts calculated under clauses (2) and
(3) plus an amount equal to one-tenth of the amount of the deficit from full funding of the
account.

(6) If the account has a surplus over full funding, the financial requirement of the account
for the following calendar year is the financial requirement of the account calculated as
though the account was fully funded under clause (4) and, if the account has also had a
surplus over full funding during the prior two years, additionally reduced by an amount
equal to one-tenth of the amount of the surplus over full funding of the account.

(d) The required contribution of the entity or entities associated with the fire department
whose active firefighters are covered by the lump-sum retirement division is the annual
financial requirements of the lump-sum account of the retirement plan under paragraph (c)
reduced by the amount of any fire state aid payable under chapter 477B or police and
firefighter retirement supplemental state aid payable under section 423A.022 that is
reasonably anticipated to be received by the retirement plan attributable to the entity or
entities during the following calendar year, and an amount of interest on the assets projected
to be received during the following calendar year calculated at the rate of six percent per
annum. The required contribution must be allocated between the entities if more than one
entity is involved. A reasonable amount of anticipated fire state aid is an amount that does
not exceed the fire state aid actually received in the prior year multiplied by the factor 1.035.

(e) The required contribution calculated in paragraph (d) must be paid to the retirement
plan on or before December 31 of the year for which it was calculated. If the contribution
is not received by the retirement plan by December 31, it is payable with interest at an
annual compound rate of six percent from the date due until the date payment is received
by the retirement plan. If the entity does not pay the full amount of the required contribution,
the executive director shall collect the unpaid amount under section 353.28, subdivision 6.

(b) A public hearing must be held on the airport zoning regulations proposed by a
municipality, county, or joint airport zoning board before they are submitted to the
commissioner for approval. If any changes that alter the regulations placed on a parcel of
land are made to the proposed airport zoning regulations after the initial public hearing, the
municipality, county, or joint airport zoning board must hold a second public hearing before
final adoption of the regulation. The commissioner may require a second hearing as
determined necessary.

(c) Notice of a hearing must be published by the municipality, county, or joint airport
zoning board at least three times during the period between 15 days and five days before
the hearing in an official newspaper and in a second newspaper designated by that authority
which has a wide general circulation in the area affected by the proposed regulations and
posted on the municipality's, county's, or joint airport zoning board's website. If there is not
a second newspaper of wide general circulation in the area that the municipality, county,
or joint airport zoning board can designate for the notice, the municipality, county, or joint
airport zoning board is only required to publish the notice once in the official newspaper
of the jurisdiction. The notice shall not be published in the legal notice section of a
newspaper. The notice must specify the time, location, and purpose of the hearing, and must
identify any additional location and time the proposed regulations will be available for
public inspection. A copy of the published notice must be added to the record of the
proceedings.

(d) Notice of a hearing must be given by mail at least ten days before each hearing to
persons and landowners where the location or size of a building, or the density of population,
will be regulated. Mailed notice must also be provided at least ten days before each hearing
to persons or municipalities that have previously requested such notice from the municipality,
county, or joint airport zoning board. The notice must specify the time, location, and purpose
of the hearing, and must identify any additional location and time the proposed regulations
will be made available for public inspection. Mailed notice must also identify the property
affected by the regulations. For the purpose of providing mailed notice, the municipality,
county, or joint airport zoning board may use any appropriate records to determine the
names and addresses of owners. A copy of the notice and a list of the owners and addresses
to which the notice was sent must be added to the records of the proceedings. Failure to
provide mailed notice to individual property owners or a defect in the notice does not
invalidate the proceedings if a bona fide attempt to comply with this subdivision was made.
