  1.29     "Sec. 4.  Laws 1998, chapter 389, article 16, section 31, 
  1.30  subdivision 3, as amended by Laws 1999, chapter 180, section 2, 
  1.31  is amended to read: 
  1.32     Subd. 3.  [COUNTY SALE.] Notwithstanding Minnesota 
  2.1   Statutes, section 282.018, or any other law to the contrary, a 
  2.2   county board must offer land that it has acquired through an 
  2.3   exchange under this section for sale to the lessee of the land 
  2.4   within 90 days from the date of acquisition for the value of the 
  2.5   land as determined by the county board.  The county board may 
  2.6   include the cost of appraisal, abstract, and survey for the 
  2.7   purposes of this section in the value of the land.  If the 
  2.8   lessee does not elect to purchase the land within 90 days from 
  2.9   the date of the offer by the county, the county board shall sell 
  2.10  the land by public sale no later than four years from the date 
  2.11  the county acquires the land through an exchange under this 
  2.12  section for no less than the value of the land as determined by 
  2.13  the county board, including the cost of appraisal required by 
  2.14  this section, any survey or abstract costs, and the value of 
  2.15  improvements to the land.  The county may sell the land with a 
  2.16  directed sale to adjacent landowners within four years from the 
  2.17  date of acquisition, if the lessee does not elect to purchase 
  2.18  the lot within the 90-day period and if the county board 
  2.19  determines that a lot cannot be brought into substantial 
  2.20  compliance with official controls absent such a sale.  The 
  2.21  county board must reimburse the lessee for the value of the 
  2.22  improvements to the land and the county may retain a sum from 
  2.23  the proceeds of the sale equivalent to the cost of appraisal, 
  2.24  abstract, and survey.  The county board must reimburse the 
  2.25  commissioner of natural resources for the costs of appraisal 
  2.26  under subdivision 2, paragraph (c), survey, and abstract from 
  2.27  the proceeds of the sale. 
  2.28     Scheduled lease rate increases shall be suspended for lots 
  2.29  when the county certifies that the lessee has elected to 
  2.30  purchase the lot within 90 days from the date of the offer by 
  2.31  the county. 
  2.32     Notwithstanding Minnesota Statutes, section 284.28, 
  2.33  subdivision 8, or any other law to the contrary, land acquired 
  2.34  through an exchange under this section is exempt from payment of 
  2.35  three percent of the sales price required to be collected by the 
  2.36  county auditor at the time of sale for deposit in the state 
  3.1   treasury."
