Sec. 13.

Minnesota Statutes 2010, section 115A.1314, is amended to read:


115A.1314 MANUFACTURER'S REGISTRATION FEE; CREATION OF
ACCOUNT
.

Subdivision 1.

Registration fee.

(a) Each manufacturer who registers under section
115A.1312 must, by September 1, 2007, and each year thereafter, pay to the commissioner
of revenue an annual registration fee. The commissioner of revenue must deposit the
fee in the account established in subdivision 2 state treasury and credit the fee to the
environmental fund
.

(b) The registration fee for the initial program year during which a manufacturer's
video display devices are sold to households is $5,000. Each year thereafter,
The
registration fee is equal to a base fee of $2,500, plus a variable recycling fee calculated
according to the formula:

((A x B) - (C + D)) x E, where:

(1) A = the number of pounds of a manufacturer's video display devices sold to
households during the previous program year, as reported to the department under section
115A.1316, subdivision 1;

(2) B = the proportion of sales of video display devices required to be recycled, set at
0.6 for the first program year and 0.8 for the second program year and every year thereafter;

(3) C = the number of pounds of covered electronic devices recycled by a
manufacturer from households during the previous program year, as reported to the
department under section 115A.1316, subdivision 1;

(4) D = the number of recycling credits a manufacturer elects to use to calculate the
variable recycling fee, as reported to the department under section 115A.1316, subdivision
1; and

(5) E = the estimated per-pound cost of recycling, initially set at $0.50 per pound for
manufacturers who recycle less than 50 percent of the product (A x B); $0.40 per pound
for manufacturers who recycle at least 50 percent but less than 90 percent of the product
(A x B); and $0.30 per pound for manufacturers who recycle at least 90 percent but less
than 100 percent of the product (A x B).

(c) If, as specified in paragraph (b), the term C - (A x B) equals a positive number of
pounds, that amount is defined as the manufacturer's recycling credits. A manufacturer
may retain recycling credits to be added, in whole or in part, to the actual value of C, as
reported under section 115A.1316, subdivision 2, during any succeeding program year,
provided that no more than 25 percent of a manufacturer's obligation (A x B) for any
program year may be met with recycling credits generated in a prior program year. A
manufacturer may sell any portion or all of its recycling credits to another manufacturer, at
a price negotiated by the parties, who may use the credits in the same manner.

(d) For the purpose of calculating a manufacturer's variable recycling fee under
paragraph (b), the weight of covered electronic devices collected from households located
outside the 11-county metropolitan area, as defined in subdivision 2, paragraph (c), is
calculated at 1.5 times their actual weight.

(e) The registration fee for the initial program year and the base registration fee
thereafter for a manufacturer who produces fewer than 100 video display devices for sale
annually to households is $1,250.

Subd. 2.

Creation of account; appropriations Use of registration fees.

(a) The
electronic waste account is established in the environmental fund. The commissioner of
revenue must deposit receipts from the fee established in subdivision 1 in the account.
Any interest earned on the account must be credited to the account. Money from other
sources may be credited to the account. Beginning in the second program year and
continuing each program year thereafter, as of the last day of each program year, the
commissioner shall determine the total amount of the variable fees that were collected. To
the extent that the total fees collected by the commissioner in connection with this section
exceed the amount the commissioner determines necessary to operate the program for the
new program year, the commissioner shall refund on a pro rata basis, to all manufacturers
who paid any fees for the previous program year, the amount of fees collected by the
commissioner in excess of the amount necessary to operate the program for the new
program year. No individual refund is required of amounts of $100 or less for a fiscal
year. Manufacturers who report collections less than 50 percent of their obligation for
the previous program year are not eligible for a refund.

(b) Until June 30, 2011, money in the account is annually appropriated to the
Pollution Control Agency:
(a) Registration fees may be used by the commissioner for:

(1) for the purpose of implementing sections 115A.1312 to 115A.1330, including
transfer to the commissioner of revenue to carry out the department's duties under
section 115A.1320, subdivision 2, and transfer to the commissioner of administration for
responsibilities under section 115A.1324; and

(2) to the commissioner of the Pollution Control Agency to be distributed on
a competitive basis through contracts with
grants to counties outside the 11-county
metropolitan area, as defined in paragraph (c) (b), and with to private entities that collect
for recycling covered electronic devices in counties outside the 11-county metropolitan
area, where the collection and recycling is consistent with the respective county's solid
waste plan, for the purpose of carrying out the activities under sections 115A.1312 to
115A.1330. In awarding competitive grants under this clause, the commissioner must
give preference to counties and private entities that are working cooperatively with
manufacturers to help them meet their recycling obligations under section 115A.1318,
subdivision 1
.

(c) (b) The 11-county metropolitan area consists of the counties of Anoka, Carver,
Chisago, Dakota, Hennepin, Isanti, Ramsey, Scott, Sherburne, Washington, and Wright.

Financial responsibility rules.

(a) The agency shall adopt rules requiring
the operator or owner of a solid waste disposal facility to submit to the agency proof
of the operator's or owner's financial capability to provide reasonable and necessary
response during the operating life of the facility and for 30 years after closure for a mixed
municipal solid waste disposal facility or for a minimum of 20 years after closure, as
determined by agency rules, for any other solid waste disposal facility, and to provide for
the closure of the facility and postclosure care required under agency rules. Proof of
financial responsibility is required of the operator or owner of a facility receiving an
original permit or a permit for expansion after adoption of the rules. Within 180 days of
the effective date of the rules or by July 1, 1987, whichever is later, proof of financial
responsibility is required of an operator or owner of a facility with a remaining capacity of
more than five years or 500,000 cubic yards that is in operation at the time the rules are
adopted. Compliance with the rules and the requirements of paragraph (b) is a condition
of obtaining or retaining a permit to operate the facility.

(b) A municipality, as defined in section 475.51, subdivision 2, including a sanitary
district, that owns or operates a solid waste disposal facility that was in operation on May
15, 1989, may meet its financial responsibility for all or a portion of the contingency
action portion of the reasonable and necessary response costs at the facility by pledging its
full faith and credit to meet its responsibility.

The pledge must be made in accordance with the requirements in chapter 475 for
issuing bonds of the municipality, and the following additional requirements:

(1) The governing body of the municipality shall enact an ordinance that clearly
accepts responsibility for the costs of contingency action at the facility and that reserves,
during the operating life of the facility and for the time period required in paragraph (a)
after closure, a portion of the debt limit of the municipality, as established under section
475.53 or other law, that is equal to the total contingency action costs.

(2) The municipality shall require that all collectors that haul to the facility
implement a plan for reducing solid waste by using volume-based pricing, recycling
incentives, or other means.

(3) When a municipality opts to meet a portion of its financial responsibility by
relying on its authority to issue bonds, it shall also begin setting aside in a dedicated
long-term care trust fund money that will cover a portion of the potential contingency
action costs at the facility, the amount to be determined by the agency for each facility
based on at least the amount of waste deposited in the disposal facility each year, and the
likelihood and potential timing of conditions arising at the facility that will necessitate
response action. The agency may not require a municipality to set aside more than five
percent of the total cost in a single year.

(4) A municipality shall have and consistently maintain an investment grade bond
rating as a condition of using bonding authority to meet financial responsibility under
this section.

(5) The municipality shall file with the commissioner of revenue its consent to have
the amount of its contingency action costs deducted from state aid payments otherwise
due the municipality and paid instead to the remediation fund created in section 116.155,
if the municipality fails to conduct the contingency action at the facility when ordered
by the agency. If the agency notifies the commissioner that the municipality has failed to
conduct contingency action when ordered by the agency, the commissioner shall deduct
the amounts indicated by the agency from the state aids in accordance with the consent
filed with the commissioner.

(6) The municipality shall file with the agency written proof that it has complied
with the requirements of paragraph (b).

(c) The method for proving financial responsibility under paragraph (b) may not be
applied to a new solid waste disposal facility or to expansion of an existing facility, unless
the expansion is a vertical expansion. Vertical expansions of qualifying existing facilities
cannot be permitted for a duration of longer than three years.

(d) The commissioner shall consult with the commissioner of management and
budget for guidance on the forms of financial assurance that are acceptable for private
owners and public owners, and in carrying out a periodic review of the adequacy of
financial assurance for solid waste disposal facilities. Financial assurance rules shall
allow financial mechanisms to public owners of solid waste disposal facilities that are
appropriate to their status as subdivisions of the state.

(e) Persons who wish the agency to consider unique financial assurance mechanisms
to meet their obligations under this subdivision and subdivisions 4f and 4g must reimburse
the agency for the costs of consultant services needed to complete a review to determine
the appropriateness of the proposed mechanism. The reimbursement shall be in addition
to any other fees imposed by law. Reimbursements accepted by the agency are deposited
in the miscellaneous special revenue fund and appropriated to the agency for the cost to
review the financial assurance mechanism.

Sec. 20. WILD RICE STANDARDS; RULEMAKING.

(a) Within 30 days of enactment, the commissioner of the Pollution Control
Agency shall initiate a process to amend Minnesota Rules, chapter 7050, which may
be accomplished through rulemaking already in progress related to the water quality
standards contained in Minnesota Rules, chapter 7050. The amended rule shall designate
each body of water, or specific portion thereof, to which the wild rice water quality
standards apply and the specific times of year during which the standard applies. Before
designating waters containing natural beds of wild rice as waters subject to a standard,
the commissioner shall establish criteria for such waters after consultation with the
commissioner of natural resources, Minnesota Indian tribes, and other interested parties
and after public notice and comment. The criteria shall include, but not be limited to,
documented history of wild rice harvests, minimum acreage, and wild rice density. Waters
where individual wild rice plants or isolated, sparse stands of wild rice exist shall not
be designated as subject to the standard.

(b) Within 30 days of enactment, the commissioner of the Pollution Control Agency
must create an advisory group to provide input to the commissioner on a protocol for
scientific research to assess the impacts of sulfates and other substances on the growth of
wild rice, review research results, and provide other advice on the development of future
rule amendments to protect wild rice. The advisory group must include representatives of
tribal governments, municipal wastewater treatment facilities, industrial dischargers, wild
rice harvesters, and wild rice research experts.

(c) After receiving the advice of the advisory group under paragraph (b), the
commissioner shall, after consultation with the commissioner of natural resources and
review of all available scientific research on water quality and other environmental
impacts on the growth of wild rice, adopt and implement a wild rice research plan using
the funding appropriated for a wild rice standards study in this act to contract with
appropriate scientific experts. The commissioner shall periodically review the results of
the research with the commissioner of natural resources and the advisory group.

(d) Upon completion of the research referenced in paragraph (c), the commissioner
shall initiate a process to amend Minnesota Rules to revise water quality standards related
to the protection of wild rice to be consistent with the results of the research.

(e) Until the rule amendment described in paragraph (d) is complete, in any permit
issued for the discharge of wastewater, the commissioner of the Pollution Control Agency
may only require that the permittee monitor sulfate concentrations in discharges, and if
appropriate based on site-specific conditions, implement a sulfate minimization plan to
avoid or minimize sulfate concentrations during periods when wild rice may be susceptible
to damage, but may not require expenditures for design and implementation of sulfate
treatment technologies. Upon completion of the rule amendment processes described in
paragraph (d), the commissioner of the Pollution Control Agency shall provide permittees
a reasonable period of time in which to comply with the amended standards.

(f) By December 15, 2011, the commissioner shall submit a report to the chairs of
the house of representatives and senate committees and divisions with jurisdiction over

Minnesota Resources for any project funded
in whole or in part with funds from the
appropriation.

(b) For all restorations conducted with money
appropriated under this section, a recipient
must prepare an ecological restoration
and management plan that, to the degree
practicable, is consistent with the highest
quality conservation and ecological goals for
the restoration site. Consideration should
be given to soil, geology, topography, and
other relevant factors that would provide
the best chance for long-term success of the
restoration projects. The plan must include
the proposed timetable for implementing
the restoration, including site preparation,
establishment of diverse plant species,
maintenance, and additional enhancement to
establish the restoration; identify long-term
maintenance and management needs of
the restoration and how the maintenance,
management, and enhancement will be
financed; and take advantage of the best
available science and include innovative
techniques to achieve the best restoration.

(c) Any entity receiving an appropriation in
this section for restoration activities must
provide an initial restoration evaluation
at the completion of the appropriation
and an evaluation three years beyond the
completion of the expenditure. Restorations
must be evaluated relative to the stated
goals and standards in the restoration plan,
current science, and, when applicable, the
Board of Water and Soil Resources' native
vegetation establishment and enhancement
guidelines. The evaluation shall determine
whether the restorations are meeting planned
goals, identify any problems with the
implementation of the restorations, and,
if necessary, give recommendations on
improving restorations. The evaluation shall
be focused on improving future restorations.

(d) Except as otherwise provided in this
section, all restoration and enhancement
projects funded with money appropriated in
this section must be on land permanently
protected by a conservation easement or
public ownership or in public waters as
defined in Minnesota Statutes, section
103G.005, subdivision 15.

implementation unless the work program
addresses why a portion of the money is
not necessary to achieve a high-quality
restoration.

(i) To the extent an appropriation is used to
acquire an interest in real property, a recipient
of an appropriation under this section must
provide to the Legislative-Citizen
Commission on Minnesota Resources and
the commissioner of management and budget
an analysis of increased operations and
maintenance costs likely to be incurred by
public entities as a result of the acquisition
and how these costs are to be paid.

(j) To ensure public accountability for the
use of public funds, a recipient of money
appropriated under this section must provide
to the Legislative-Citizen Commission on
Minnesota Resources documentation of the
selection process used to identify parcels
acquired and provide documentation of all
related transaction costs, including but not
limited to appraisals, legal fees, recording
fees, commissions, other similar costs,
and donations. This information must be
provided for all parties involved in the
transaction. The recipient must also report
to the Legislative-Citizen Commission on
Minnesota Resources any difference between
the acquisition amount paid to the seller
and the state-certified or state-reviewed
appraisal, if a state-certified or state-reviewed
appraisal was conducted. Acquisition data
such as appraisals may remain private
during negotiations but must ultimately
be made public according to Minnesota
Statutes, chapter 13. The Legislative-Citizen
Commission on Minnesota Resources shall
review the requirement in this paragraph
and provide a recommendation on whether
to continue or modify the requirement in
future years. The commission may waive
the application of this paragraph for specific
projects.

(k) A recipient of an appropriation from
the trust fund under this section must
acknowledge financial support from the
Minnesota environment and natural resources
trust fund in project publications, signage,
and other public communications and
outreach related to work completed using the

290.431 NONGAME WILDLIFE CHECKOFF.

Every individual who files an income tax return or property tax refund claim form
may designate on their original return that $1 or more shall be added to the tax or deducted
from the refund that would otherwise be payable by or to that individual and paid into an
account to be established for the management of nongame wildlife. The commissioner
of revenue shall, on the income tax return and the property tax refund claim form, notify
filers of their right to designate that a portion of their tax or refund shall be paid into the
nongame wildlife management account. The sum of the amounts so designated to be paid
shall be credited to the nongame wildlife management account for use by the nongame
program in the Department of Natural Resources. All interest earned on money accrued,
gifts to the program, contributions to the program, and reimbursements of expenditures
in the nongame wildlife management account shall be credited to the account by the
commissioner of management and budget, except that gifts or contributions received
directly by the commissioner of natural resources and directed by the contributor for
use in specific nongame field projects or geographic areas shall be handled according to
section 84.085, subdivision 1. The commissioner of natural resources shall submit a work
program for each fiscal year and semiannual progress reports to the Legislative-Citizen
Commission on Minnesota Resources in the form determined by the commission.

The state pledges and agrees with all contributors to the nongame wildlife
management account to use the funds contributed solely for the management of nongame
wildlife projects and further agrees that it will not impose additional conditions or
restrictions that will limit or otherwise restrict the ability of the commissioner of natural
resources to use the available funds for the most efficient and effective management of
nongame wildlife. The commissioner may use funds appropriated for nongame wildlife
programs for the purpose of developing, preserving, restoring, and maintaining wintering
habitat for neotropical migrant birds in Latin America and the Caribbean under agreement
or contract with any nonprofit organization dedicated to the construction, maintenance, and
repair of such projects that are acceptable to the governmental agency having jurisdiction
over the land and water affected by the projects. Under this authority, the commissioner
may execute agreements and contracts if the commissioner determines that the use of the
funds will benefit neotropical migrant birds that breed in or migrate through the state.

Sec. 7.

Minnesota Statutes 2010, section 290.432, is amended to read:


290.432 CORPORATE NONGAME WILDLIFE CHECKOFF.

A corporation that files an income tax return may designate on its original return that
$1 or more shall be added to the tax or deducted from the refund that would otherwise
be payable by or to that corporation and paid into the nongame wildlife management
account established by section 290.431 for use by the Department of Natural Resources
for its nongame wildlife program. The commissioner of revenue shall, on the corporate
tax return, notify filers of their right to designate that a portion of their tax return be paid
into the nongame wildlife management account for the protection of endangered natural
resources. All interest earned on money accrued, gifts to the program, contributions to
the program, and reimbursements of expenditures in the nongame wildlife management
account shall be credited to the account by the commissioner of management and budget,
except that gifts or contributions received directly by the commissioner of natural
resources and directed by the contributor for use in specific nongame field projects or
geographic areas shall be handled according to section 84.085, subdivision 1. The
commissioner of natural resources shall submit a work program for each fiscal year to
the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources in the form determined
by the commission.
