Sec. 5.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 80E.13, is amended to read:


80E.13 UNFAIR PRACTICES BY MANUFACTURERS, DISTRIBUTORS,
FACTORY BRANCHES.

It is unlawful and an unfair practice for a manufacturer, distributor, or factory branch
to engage in any of the following practices:

(a) delay, refuse, or fail to deliver new motor vehicles or new motor vehicle parts or
accessories in reasonable time and in reasonable quantity relative to the new motor vehicle
dealer's facilities and sales potential in the dealer's relevant market area, after having accepted
an order from a new motor vehicle dealer having a franchise for the retail sale of any new
motor vehicle sold or distributed by the manufacturer or distributor, if the new motor vehicle
or new motor vehicle parts or accessories are publicly advertised as being available for
delivery or actually being delivered. This clause is not violated, however, if the failure is
caused by acts or causes beyond the control of the manufacturer;

(b) refuse to disclose to any new motor vehicle dealer handling the same line make, the
manner and mode of distribution of that line make within the relevant market area;

(c) obtain money, goods, service, or any other benefit from any other person with whom
the dealer does business, on account of, or in relation to, the transaction between the dealer
and the other person, other than for compensation for services rendered, unless the benefit
is promptly accounted for, and transmitted to, the new motor vehicle dealer;

(d) increase prices of new motor vehicles which the new motor vehicle dealer had ordered
for private retail consumers prior to the dealer's receiving the written official price increase
notification. A sales contract signed by a private retail consumer shall constitute evidence
of each order if the vehicle is in fact delivered to that customer. In the event of manufacturer
price reductions, the amount of any reduction received by a dealer shall be passed on to the
private retail consumer by the dealer if the retail price was negotiated on the basis of the
previous higher price to the dealer;

(e) offer any refunds or other types of inducements to any new motor vehicle dealer for
the purchase of new motor vehicles of a certain line make without making the same offer
to all other new motor vehicle dealers in the same line make within geographic areas
reasonably determined by the manufacturer;

(f) release to any outside party, except under subpoena or in an administrative or judicial
proceeding involving the manufacturer or dealer, any business, financial, or personal
information which may be provided by the dealer to the manufacturer, without the express
written consent of the dealer or unless pertinent to judicial or governmental administrative
proceedings or to arbitration proceedings of any kind;

(g) deny any new motor vehicle dealer the right of free association with any other new
motor vehicle dealer for any lawful purpose;

(h) unfairly discriminate among its new motor vehicle dealers with respect to warranty
reimbursement or authority granted its new vehicle dealers to make warranty adjustments
with retail customers;

(i) compete with a new motor vehicle dealer in the same line make operating under an
agreement or franchise from the same manufacturer, distributor, or factory branch. A
manufacturer, distributor, or factory branch is considered to be competing when it has an
ownership interest, other than a passive interest held for investment purposes, in a dealership
of its line make located within the state. A manufacturer, distributor, or factory branch shall
not, however, be deemed to be competing when operating a dealership, either temporarily
or for a reasonable period, which is for sale to any qualified independent person at a fair
and reasonable price, or when involved in a bona fide relationship in which an independent
person has made a significant investment subject to loss in the dealership and can reasonably
expect to acquire full ownership and full management and operational control of the
dealership within a reasonable time on reasonable terms and conditions;

(j) prevent a new motor vehicle dealer from transferring or assigning a new motor vehicle
dealership to a qualified transferee. There shall be no transfer, assignment of the franchise,
or major change in the executive management of the dealership, except as is otherwise
provided in sections 80E.01 to 80E.17, without consent of the manufacturer, which shall
not be withheld without good cause. In determining whether good cause exists for
withholding consent to a transfer or assignment, the manufacturer, distributor, factory
branch, or importer has the burden of proving that the transferee is a person who is not of
good moral character or does not meet the franchisor's existing and reasonable capital
standards and, considering the volume of sales and service of the new motor vehicle dealer,
reasonable business experience standards in the market area. Denial of the request must be
in writing and delivered to the new motor vehicle dealer within 60 days after the manufacturer
receives the completed application customarily used by the manufacturer, distributor, factory
branch, or importer for dealer appointments. If a denial is not sent within this period, the
manufacturer shall be deemed to have given its consent to the proposed transfer or change.
In the event of a proposed sale or transfer of a franchise, the manufacturer, distributor,
factory branch, or importer shall be permitted to exercise a right of first refusal to acquire
the franchisee's assets or ownership if:

(1) the franchise agreement permits the manufacturer, distributor, factory branch, or
importer to exercise a right of first refusal to acquire the franchisee's assets or ownership
in the event of a proposed sale or transfer;

(2) the proposed transfer of the dealership or its assets is of more than 50 percent of the
ownership or assets;

(3) the manufacturer, distributor, factory branch, or importer notifies the dealer in writing
within 60 days of its receipt of the complete written proposal for the proposed sale or transfer
on forms generally utilized by the manufacturer, distributor, factory branch, or importer for
such purposes and containing the information required therein and all documents and
agreements relating to the proposed sale or transfer;

(4) the exercise of the right of first refusal will result in the dealer and dealer's owners
receiving the same or greater consideration with equivalent terms of sale as is provided in
the documents and agreements submitted to the manufacturer, distributor, factory branch,
or importer under clause (3);

(5) the proposed change of 50 percent or more of the ownership or of the dealership
assets does not involve the transfer or sale of assets or the transfer or issuance of stock by
the dealer or one or more dealer owners to a family member, including a spouse, child,
stepchild, grandchild, spouse of a child or grandchild, brother, sister, or parent of the dealer
owner; to a manager who has been employed in the dealership for at least four years and is
otherwise qualified as a dealer operator; or to a partnership or corporation owned and
controlled by one or more of such persons; and

(6) the manufacturer, distributor, factory branch, or importer agrees to pay the reasonable
expenses, including reasonable attorney fees, which do not exceed the usual customary and
reasonable fees charged for similar work done for other clients incurred by the proposed
new owner and transferee before the manufacturer, distributor, factory branch, or importer
exercises its right of first refusal, in negotiating and implementing the contract for the
proposed change of ownership or transfer of dealership assets. However, payment of such
expenses and attorney fees shall not be required if the dealer has not submitted or caused
to be submitted an accounting of those expenses within 20 days after the dealer's receipt of
the manufacturer, distributor, factory branch, or importer's written request for such an
accounting. The manufacturer, distributor, factory branch, or importer may request such an
accounting before exercising its right of first refusal. The obligation created under this clause
is enforceable by the transferee;

(k) threaten to modify or replace or modify or replace a franchise with a succeeding
franchise that would adversely alter the rights or obligations of a new motor vehicle dealer
under an existing franchise or that substantially impairs the sales or service obligations or
investments of the motor vehicle dealer;

(l) unreasonably deny the right to acquire factory program vehicles to any dealer holding
a valid franchise from the manufacturer to sell the same line make of vehicles, provided
that the manufacturer may impose reasonable restrictions and limitations on the purchase
or resale of program vehicles to be applied equitably to all of its franchised dealers. For the
purposes of this paragraph, "factory program vehicle" has the meaning given the term in
section 80E.06, subdivision 2;

(m) fail or refuse to offer to its same line make franchised dealers all models manufactured
for that line make, other than alternative fuel vehicles as defined in section 216C.01,
subdivision 1b
. Failure to offer a model is not a violation of this section if the failure is not
arbitrary and is due to a lack of manufacturing capacity, a strike, labor difficulty, or other
cause over which the manufacturer, distributor, or factory branch has no control;

(n) require a dealer to pay an extra fee, or remodel, renovate, or recondition the dealer's
existing facilities, or purchase unreasonable advertising displays, training, tools, or other
materials, or to require the dealer to establish exclusive facilities or dedicated personnel as
a prerequisite to receiving a model or a series of vehicles;

(o) require a dealer by program, incentive provision, or otherwise to adhere to
performance standards that are not applied uniformly to other similarly situated dealers.

A performance standard, sales objective, or program for measuring dealership performance
that may have a material effect on a dealer, including the dealer's right to payment under
any incentive or reimbursement program, and the application of the standard or program
by a manufacturer, distributor, or factory branch must be fair, reasonable, equitable, and
based on accurate information. Upon written request by any of its franchised dealers located
within Minnesota, a manufacturer, distributor, or factory branch must provide the method
or formula used by the manufacturer in establishing the sales volumes for receiving a rebate
or incentive and the specific calculations for determining the required sales volumes of the
inquiring dealer and any of the manufacturer's other Minnesota-franchised new motor vehicle
dealers of the same line-make located within 75 miles of the inquiring dealer. Nothing
contained in this section requires a manufacturer, distributor, or factory branch to disclose
confidential business information of any of its franchised dealers or the required numerical
sales volumes that any of its franchised dealers must attain to receive a rebate or incentive.
An inquiring dealer may file a civil action as provided in section 80E.17 without a showing
of injury if a manufacturer, distributor, or factory branch fails to make the disclosure required
by this section.

A manufacturer, distributor, or factory branch has the burden of proving that the performance
standard, sales objective, or program for measuring dealership performance is fair, reasonable,
and uniformly applied under this section;

(p) assign or change a dealer's area of sales effectiveness arbitrarily or without due regard
to the present pattern of motor vehicle sales and registrations within the dealer's market.
The manufacturer, distributor, or factory branch must provide at least 90 days' notice of the
proposed change. The change may not take effect if the dealer commences a civil action
within the 90 days' notice period to determine whether the manufacturer, distributor, or
factory branch met its obligations under this section. The burden of proof in such an action
shall be on the manufacturer or distributor. In determining at the evidentiary hearing whether
a manufacturer, distributor, or factory branch has assigned or changed the dealer's area of
sales effectiveness or is proposing to assign or change the dealer's area of sales effectiveness
arbitrarily or without due regard to the present pattern of motor vehicle sales and registrations
within the dealer's market, the court may take into consideration the relevant circumstances,
including, but not limited to:

(1) the traffic patterns between consumers and the same line-make franchised dealers
of the affected manufacturer, distributor, or factory branch who are located within the
market;

(2) the pattern of new vehicle sales and registrations of the affected manufacturer,
distributor, or factory branch within various portions of the area of sales effectiveness and
within the market as a whole;

(3) the growth or decline in population, density of population, and new car registrations
in the market;

(4) the presence or absence of natural geographical obstacles or boundaries, such as
rivers;

(5) the proximity of census tracts or other geographic units used by the affected
manufacturer, factory branch, distributor, or distributor branch in determining the same
line-make dealers' respective areas of sales effectiveness; and

(6) the reasonableness of the change or proposed change to the dealer's area of sales
effectiveness, considering the benefits and harm to the petitioning dealer, other same
line-make dealers, and the manufacturer, distributor, or factory branch;

(q) to charge back, withhold payment, deny vehicle allocation, or take any other adverse
action against a dealer when a new vehicle sold by the dealer has been exported to a foreign
country, unless the manufacturer, distributor, or factory branch can show that at the time
of sale, the customer's information was listed on a known or suspected exporter list made
available to the dealer, or the dealer knew or reasonably should have known of the purchaser's
intention to export or resell the motor vehicle in violation of the manufacturer's export
policy. There is a rebuttable presumption that the dealer did not know or should not have
reasonably known that the vehicle would be exported or resold in violation of the
manufacturer's export policy if the vehicle is titled and registered in any state of the United
States; deleted text beginor

new text begin (r) to implement a charge back or withhold payment to a dealer that is solely due to an
unreasonable delay by the registrar, as defined in section 168.002, subdivision 29, in the
transfer or registration of a new motor vehicle. The dealer must give the manufacturer notice
of the state's delay in writing. Within 30 days of any notice of a charge back, withholding
of payments, or denial of a claim, the dealer must transmit to the manufacturer: (1)
documentation to demonstrate the vehicle sale and delivery as reported; and (2) a written
attestation signed by the dealer operator or general manager stating that the delay is
attributable to the state. This clause expires on June 30, 2022; or

and approved by the manufacturer, distributor, or factory branch, including any such
improvements, signs, or franchisor image elements that were required as a condition of the
dealer or predecessor dealer receiving an incentive or other compensation from the
manufacturer, distributor, or factory branch.

This paragraph shall not apply to a program or agreement that provides lump sum payments
to assist dealers in making facility improvements or to pay for signs or franchisor image
elements when such payments are not dependent on the dealer selling or purchasing specific
numbers of new vehicles and shall not apply to a program that is in effect with more than
one Minnesota dealer on August 1, 2018, nor to any renewal of such program, nor to a
modification that is not a substantial modification of a material term or condition of such
program.

Passenger automobile; hearse.

(a) On passenger automobiles as defined in
section 168.002, subdivision 24, and hearses, except as otherwise provided, the tax is $10
plus an additional tax equal to 1.25 percent of the base value.

(b) Subject to the classification provisions herein, "base value" means the manufacturer's
suggested retail price of the vehicle including destination charge using list price information
published by the manufacturer or determined by the registrar if no suggested retail price
exists, and shall not include the cost of each accessory or item of optional equipment
separately added to the vehicle and the suggested retail price.new text begin In the case of the first
registration of a new vehicle sold or leased by a licensed dealer, the dealer may elect to
individually determine the base value of the vehicle using suggested retail price information
provided by the manufacturer. The registrar must use the base value determined by the
dealer to properly classify the vehicle. A dealer that elects to make the determination must
retain a copy of the suggested retail price label or other supporting documentation with the
vehicle transaction records maintained under Minnesota Rules, part 7400.5200.
new text end

(c) If the manufacturer's list price information contains a single vehicle identification
number followed by various descriptions and suggested retail prices, the registrar shall
select from those listings only the lowest price for determining base value.

(d) If unable to determine the base value because the vehicle is specially constructed,
or for any other reason, the registrar may establish such value upon the cost price to the
purchaser or owner as evidenced by a certificate of cost but not including Minnesota sales
or use tax or any local sales or other local tax.

(e) The registrar shall classify every vehicle in its proper base value class as follows:

FROM
TO
$
0
$ 199.99
$
200
$ 399.99

and thereafter a series of classes successively set in brackets having a spread of $200
consisting of such number of classes as will permit classification of all vehicles.

(f) The base value for purposes of this section shall be the middle point between the
extremes of its class.

(g) The registrar shall establish the base value, when new, of every passenger automobile
and hearse registered prior to the effective date of Extra Session Laws 1971, chapter 31,
using list price information published by the manufacturer or any nationally recognized
firm or association compiling such data for the automotive industry. If unable to ascertain
the base value of any registered vehicle in the foregoing manner, the registrar may use any
other available source or method. The registrar shall calculate tax using base value
information available to dealers and deputy registrars at the time the application for
registration is submitted. The tax on all previously registered vehicles shall be computed
upon the base value thus determined taking into account the depreciation provisions of
paragraph (h).

(h) The annual additional tax must be computed upon a percentage of the base value as
follows: during the first year of vehicle life, upon 100 percent of the base value; for the
second year, 90 percent of such value; for the third year, 80 percent of such value; for the
fourth year, 70 percent of such value; for the fifth year, 60 percent of such value; for the
sixth year, 50 percent of such value; for the seventh year, 40 percent of such value; for the
eighth year, 30 percent of such value; for the ninth year, 20 percent of such value; for the
tenth year, ten percent of such value; for the 11th and each succeeding year, the sum of $25.

(i) In no event shall the annual additional tax be less than $25.

(j) For any vehicle previously registered in Minnesota and regardless of prior ownership,
the total amount due under this subdivision and subdivision 1m must not exceed the smallest
total amount previously paid or due on the vehicle.

Sec. 20.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 168.013, subdivision 3, is amended to read:


Subd. 3.

Application; cancellation; excessive gross weight forbidden.

(a) The applicant
for all licenses based on gross weight shall state the unloaded weight of the motor vehicle,
trailer, or semitrailer and the maximum load the applicant proposes to carry on it, the sum
of which constitutes the gross weight upon which the license tax must be paid. However,
the declared gross weight upon which the tax is paid must not be less than 1-1/4 times the
declared unloaded weight of the motor vehicle, trailer, or semitrailer to be registered, except
recreational vehicles taxed under subdivision 1g, school buses taxed under subdivision 18,
and tow trucks or towing vehicles defined in section 168B.011, subdivision 12a. The gross
weight of a tow truck or towing vehicle is the actual weight of the tow truck or towing
vehicle fully equipped, but does not include the weight of a wrecked or disabled vehicle
towed or drawn by the tow truck or towing vehicle.

(b) Except as provided by special permit issued under section 169.86, the gross weight
of a motor vehicle, trailer, or semitrailer must not exceed the gross weight upon which the
license tax has been paid by more than four percent or 1,000 pounds, whichever is greater;
provided that, a vehicle transporting unfinished forest products on a highway, other than a
highway that is part of the system of interstate and defense highways, unless a federal
exemption is granted, in accordance with paragraph (d)(3):

(1) shall not exceed its gross vehicle weight upon which the license tax has been paid,
or gross axle weight on any axle, by more than five percent and, notwithstanding other law
to the contrary, is not subject to any fee, fine, or other assessment or penalty for exceeding
a gross vehicle or axle weight by up to five percentnew text begin. This clause applies year round to
suppliers of unfinished forest products to mills
new text end; and

(2) deleted text beginbetween the dates set by the commissioner in accordance with section 169.826,
subdivision 1
,
deleted text end is not subject to any provision of paragraph (d) or chapter 169 limiting the
gross axle weight of any individual axle unless the entire vehicle also exceeds its gross
vehicle weight plus its weight allowance allowed in clause (1) and plus any weight allowance
permitted under section 169.826new text begin or 169.8261new text end, in which case the vehicle is subject to all
applicable penalties for excess weight violations.

(c) The gross weight of the motor vehicle, trailer, or semitrailer for which the license
tax is paid must be indicated by a distinctive character on the license plate or plates except
as provided in subdivision 12 or section 169.86, subdivision 5a, as applicable, and the plate
or plates must be kept clean and clearly visible at all times.

(d) The owner, driver, or user of a motor vehicle, trailer, or semitrailer, upon conviction
for transporting a gross weight in excess of the gross weight for which it was registered or
for operating a vehicle with an axle weight exceeding the maximum lawful axle load weight,
is guilty of a misdemeanor and subject to increased registration or reregistration according
to the following schedule:

(1) Upon conviction for transporting a gross weight in excess of the gross weight for
which a motor vehicle, trailer, or semitrailer is registered by more than the allowance set
forth in paragraph (b) but less than 25 percent, or for operating or using a motor vehicle,
trailer, or semitrailer with an axle weight exceeding the maximum lawful axle load as
provided in sections 169.822 to 169.829 by more than the allowance set forth in paragraph
(b) but less than 25 percent, the owner, driver, or user of the motor vehicle, trailer, or
semitrailer used to commit the violation, in addition to any penalty imposed for the
misdemeanor, shall apply to the registrar to increase the authorized gross weight to be carried
on the vehicle to a weight equal to or greater than the gross weight the owner, driver, or
user was convicted of carrying. The increase is computed for the balance of the calendar
year on the basis of 1/12 of the annual tax for each month remaining in the calendar year
beginning with the first day of the month in which the violation occurred. If the additional
registration tax computed upon that weight, plus the tax already paid, amounts to more than
the regular tax for the maximum gross weight permitted for the vehicle under sections
169.822 to 169.829, that additional amount must nevertheless be paid into the highway
fund, but the additional tax thus paid does not authorize or permit any person to operate the
vehicle with a gross weight in excess of the maximum legal weight as provided by sections
169.822 to 169.829. Unless the owner within 30 days after a conviction applies to increase
the authorized weight and pays the additional tax as provided in this section, the registrar
shall revoke the registration on the vehicle and demand the return of the registration card
and plates issued on that registration.

(2) Upon conviction of an owner, driver, or user of a motor vehicle, trailer, or semitrailer
for transporting a gross weight in excess of the gross weight for which the motor vehicle,
trailer, or semitrailer was registered by 25 percent or more or for operating or using the
vehicle or trailer with an axle weight exceeding the maximum lawful axle load as provided
in sections 169.822 to 169.829 by 25 percent or more, and in addition to any penalty imposed
for the misdemeanor, the registrar shall either (i) cancel the reciprocity privileges on the
vehicle involved if the vehicle is being operated under reciprocity or (ii) if the vehicle is
not being operated under reciprocity, cancel the certificate of registration on the vehicle
operated and demand the return of the registration certificate and registration plates. The
registrar may not cancel the registration or reciprocity privileges for any vehicle found in
violation of seasonal load restrictions imposed under section 169.87 unless the axle weight
exceeds the year-round weight limit for the highway on which the violation occurred. The
registrar may investigate any allegation of gross weight violations and demand that the
operator show cause why all future operating privileges in the state should not be revoked
unless the additional tax assessed is paid.

(3) Clause (1) does not apply to the first haul of unprocessed or raw farm products or
unfinished forest products, when the registered gross weight is not exceeded by more than
ten percent. For purposes of this clause, "first haul" means (i) the first, continuous
transportation of unprocessed or raw farm products from the place of production or on-farm
storage site to any other location within 100 miles of the place of production or on-farm
storage site, or (ii) the continuous or noncontinuous transportation of unfinished forest
products from the place of production to the place of final processing or manufacture located
within 200 miles of the place of production.

(4) When the registration on a motor vehicle, trailer, or semitrailer is revoked by the
registrar according to this section, the vehicle must not be operated on the highways of the
state until it is registered or reregistered, as the case may be, and new plates issued, and the
registration fee is the annual tax for the total gross weight of the vehicle at the time of
violation. The reregistration pursuant to this subdivision of any vehicle operating under
reciprocity agreements pursuant to section 168.181 or 168.187 must be at the full annual
registration fee without regard to the percentage of vehicle miles traveled in this state.

Sec. 21.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 168.10, subdivision 1h, is amended to read:


Subd. 1h.

Collector military vehicle.

(a) A motor vehicle, including a truck, shall be
listed and registered under this section if it meets the following conditions:

(1) it is at least 20 years old;

(2) its first owner following its manufacture was a branch of the armed forces of the
United States and it presently conforms to the vehicle specifications required during the
time of military ownership, or it has been restored and presently conforms to the
specifications required by a branch of the armed forces for the model year that the restored
vehicle could have been owned by that branch of the armed forces; and

(3) it is owned by a nonprofit organization and operated solely as a collector's vehicle.
For purposes of this subdivision, "nonprofit organization" means a corporation, society,
association, foundation, or institution organized and operated exclusively for historical or
educational purposes, no part of the net earnings of which inures to the benefit of a private
individual.

(b) The owner of the vehicle shall execute an affidavit stating the name and address of
the person from whom purchased and of the new owner; the make, year, and model number
of the motor vehicle; the manufacturer's identification number; and the collector military
vehicle identification number, if any, located on the exterior of the vehicle. The affidavit
must affirm that the vehicle is owned by a nonprofit organization and is operated solely as
a collector's item and not for general transportation purposes. If the commissioner is satisfied
that the affidavit is true and correct and the owner pays a $25 tax and the plate fee authorized
under section 168.12, the commissioner shall list the vehicle for taxation and registration
and shall issue number plates. The number plates shall bear the inscriptions "Collector" and
"Minnesota" and the registration number, but no date. The number plates are valid without
renewal as long as the vehicle is in existence in Minnesota. The commissioner may revoke
the plates for failure to comply with this subdivision.

(c) Notwithstanding section 168.09, 168.12, or other law to the contrary, the owner of
a registered collector military vehicle is not required to display registration plates on the
exterior of the vehicle if the vehicle has an exterior number identification that conforms to
the identifying system for military vehicles in effect when the vehicle was last owned by
the branch of the armed forces of the United States or in effect in the year to which the
collector military vehicle has been restored. However, the state registration plates must be
carried in or on the collector military vehicle at all times.

(d) The owner of a registered collector military vehicle that is not required to display
registration plates under paragraph (c) may tow a registered trailer behind it. The trailer is
not required to display registration plates if the trailer:

(1) does not exceed a gross weight of 15,000 pounds;

(2) otherwise conforms to registration, licensing, and safety laws and specifications;

(3) conforms to military specifications for appearance and identification;

(4) is intended to represent and does represent a military trailer; and

(5) carries registration plates on or in the trailer or the collector military vehicle towing
the trailer.

new text begin (e) This subdivision does not apply to a decommissioned military vehicle that (1) was
also manufactured and sold as a comparable civilian vehicle, and (2) has the same size
dimensions and vehicle weight as the comparable civilian vehicle. A decommissioned
military vehicle under this paragraph is eligible for a motor vehicle title under chapter 168A
and is subject to the same registration, insurance, equipment, and operating requirements

an airport hazard area is located.

(b) Where an airport is owned or controlled by a municipality and an airport hazard area
appertaining to the airport is located within the territorial limits of another county or
municipality, the municipality owning or controlling the airport and the county or other
municipality within which the airport hazard area is located may, by ordinance or resolution
duly adopted, create a joint airport zoning board, which board shall have the same power
to adopt, administer, and enforce airport zoning regulations applicable to the airport hazard
area in question as that vested by subdivision 1 in the municipality within which the area
is located. A joint board shall have as members two representatives appointed by the
municipality owning or controlling the airport and two from the county or municipality, or
in case more than one county or municipality is involved two from each county or
municipality, in which the airport hazard is located, and in addition a chair elected by a
majority of the members so appointed. All members shall serve at the pleasure of their
respective appointing authority. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
if the owning and controlling municipality is a city of the first class it shall appoint four
members to the board, and the chair of the board shall be elected from the membership of
the board.

(c) If a county or municipality, within 60 days of receiving a request from an owning
or controlling municipality pursuant to paragraph (a), fails to adopt, or thereafter fails to
enforce, the zoning regulations or fails to join in creating a joint airport zoning board, the
owning or controlling municipality, or a joint airport zoning board created without
participation by the subdivisions which fail to join the board, may itself adopt, administer,
and enforce airport zoning regulations for the airport hazard area in question. In the event
of conflict between the regulations and airport zoning regulations adopted by the county or
municipality within which the airport hazard area is located, section 360.064, subdivision
2
, applies.

(d) "Owning or controlling municipality," as used in this subdivision, includes:

(1) a joint airport operating board created pursuant to section 360.042 that has been
granted all the powers of a municipality in zoning matters under the agreement creating the
board;

(2) a joint airport operating board created pursuant to section 360.042 that has not been
granted zoning powers under the agreement creating the board; provided that the board shall
not itself adopt zoning regulations nor shall a joint airport zoning board created at its request
adopt zoning regulations unless all municipalities that created the joint operating board join
to create the joint zoning board; and

(3) the Metropolitan Airports Commission established and operated pursuant to chapter
473.

(e) The Metropolitan Airports Commission shall request creation of one joint airport
zoning board for each airport operated under its authority.
