Form; procedure.

(a) Appropriation bonds may be issued in the form of bonds,
notes, or other similar instruments, and in the manner provided in section 16A.672. In the
event that any provision of section 16A.672 conflicts with this section, this section shall
control.

(b) Every appropriation bond shall include a conspicuous statement of the limitation
established in subdivision 6.

(c) Appropriation bonds may be sold at either public or private sale upon such terms as
the commissioner shall determine are not inconsistent with this section and may be sold at
any price or percentage of par value. Any bid received may be rejected.

(d) Appropriation bonds must bear interest at a fixed or variable rate.

(e) Notwithstanding any other law, appropriation bonds issued under this section shall
be fully negotiable.

Subd. 4.

Refunding bonds.

The commissioner may issue appropriation bonds for the
purpose of refunding any appropriation bonds then outstanding, including the payment of
any redemption premiums on the bonds, any interest accrued or to accrue to the redemption
date, and costs related to the issuance and sale of the refunding bonds. The proceeds of any
refunding bonds may, in the discretion of the commissioner, be applied to the purchase or
payment at maturity of the appropriation bonds to be refunded, to the redemption of the
outstanding appropriation bonds on any redemption date, or to pay interest on the refunding
bonds and may, pending application, be placed in escrow to be applied to the purchase,
payment, retirement, or redemption. Any escrowed proceeds, pending such use, may be
invested and reinvested in obligations that are authorized investments under section 11A.24.
The income earned or realized on the investment may also be applied to the payment of the
appropriation bonds to be refunded or interest or premiums on the refunded appropriation
bonds, or to pay interest on the refunding bonds. After the terms of the escrow have been
fully satisfied, any balance of the proceeds and any investment income may be returned to
the general fund or, if applicable, the special appropriation Lewis and Clark bond proceeds
fund for use in any lawful manner. All refunding bonds issued under this subdivision must
be prepared, executed, delivered, and secured by appropriations in the same manner as the
appropriation bonds to be refunded.

Subd. 5.

Appropriation bonds as legal investments.

Any of the following entities may
legally invest any sinking funds, money, or other funds belonging to them or under their
control in any appropriation bonds issued under this section:

(1) the state, the investment board, public officers, municipal corporations, political
subdivisions, and public bodies;

(2) banks and bankers, savings and loan associations, credit unions, trust companies,
savings banks and institutions, investment companies, insurance companies, insurance
associations, and other persons carrying on a banking or insurance business; and

(3) personal representatives, guardians, trustees, and other fiduciaries.

Subd. 6.

No full faith and credit; state not required to make appropriations.

The
appropriation bonds are not public debt of the state, and the full faith, credit, and taxing
powers of the state are not pledged to the payment of the appropriation bonds or to any
payment that the state agrees to make under this section. Appropriation bonds shall not be
obligations paid directly, in whole or in part, from a tax of statewide application on any
class of property, income, transaction, or privilege. Appropriation bonds shall be payable
in each fiscal year only from amounts that the legislature may appropriate for debt service
for any fiscal year, provided that nothing in this section shall be construed to require the
state to appropriate money sufficient to make debt service payments with respect to the
appropriation bonds in any fiscal year. Appropriation bonds shall be canceled and shall no
longer be outstanding on the earlier of (1) the first day of a fiscal year for which the
legislature shall not have appropriated amounts sufficient for debt service, or (2) the date
of final payment of the principal of and interest on the appropriation bonds.

extent necessary to ensure this and will furnish the commissioner of management and budget

assets will constitute betterments and capital improvements within the meaning of the
Constitution and capital expenditures under generally accepted accounting principles, and
will be financed more efficiently and economically under this section than by direct
appropriations for specific projects.

or construct buildings or other facilities.

(c) Capital budget expenditures for natural resource asset preservation and replacement
projects must be for one or more of the following types of capital projects that support the
existing programmatic mission of the department: code compliance including health and
safety, Americans with Disabilities Act requirements, hazardous material abatement, access
improvement, or air quality improvement; building energy efficiency improvements using

and exterior of existing buildings; new text beginprojects to remove life safety hazards such as building

Type and amount of assistance.

(a) For a governmental unit receiving grant
funding from the USDA/RECD, the authority may provide assistance in the form of a grant
of up to 65 percent of the eligible grant need determined by USDA/RECD. A governmental
unit may not receive a grant under this paragraph for more than deleted text begin$4,000,000deleted text endnew text begin $5,000,000new text end per

(b) For a governmental unit receiving a loan from the clean water revolving fund under
section 446A.07, the authority may provide assistance under this section in the form of a
grant if the average annual residential wastewater system cost after completion of the project
would otherwise exceed 1.4 percent of the median household income of the project service
area. In determining whether the average annual residential wastewater system cost would
exceed 1.4 percent, the authority must consider the total costs associated with building,
operating, and maintaining the wastewater system, including existing wastewater debt
service, debt service on the eligible project cost, and operation and maintenance costs. Debt
service costs for the proposed project are calculated based on the maximum loan term
permitted for the clean water revolving fund loan under section 446A.07, subdivision 7.
The amount of the grant is equal to 80 percent of the amount needed to reduce the average
annual residential wastewater system cost to 1.4 percent of median household income in
the project service area, to a maximum of deleted text begin$4,000,000deleted text endnew text begin $5,000,000new text end per project or deleted text begin$15,000deleted text endnew text begin

eligible project cost.

new text begin (c) For a governmental unit receiving a loan from the drinking water revolving fund
under section 446A.081, the authority may provide assistance under this section in the form
of a grant if the average annual residential drinking water system cost after completion of
the project would otherwise exceed 1.2 percent of the median household income of the
project service area. In determining whether the average annual residential drinking water
system cost would exceed 1.2 percent, the authority must consider the total costs associated
with building, operating, and maintaining the drinking water system, including existing
drinking water debt service, debt service on the eligible project cost, and operation and
maintenance costs. Debt service costs for the proposed project are calculated based on the
maximum loan term permitted for the drinking water revolving fund loan under section
446A.081, subdivision 8, paragraph (c). The amount of the grant is equal to 80 percent of
the amount needed to reduce the average annual residential drinking water system cost to
1.2 percent of median household income in the project service area, to a maximum of
$5,000,000 per project or $20,000 per existing connection, whichever is less, unless
specifically approved by law. The eligible project cost is determined by multiplying the
