Legislative findings.

The legislature finds as follows:

(1) at the time of these findings, businesses that are operated and majority-owned by
nonminority women, by persons with any substantial physical disability, or by members of
a specific minority group are underutilized in Minnesota highway construction contracts;

(2) at the time of these findings, evidence demonstrates that race-neutral measures
are ineffective to correct the impact of past discrimination that exists in highway
construction and must be supplemented with race- and gender-conscious measures; and

(3) the state has a compelling interest to remedy the effects of past or present
discrimination in the Minnesota highway construction industry through the implementation
of a targeted group business program that meets state and federal constitutional guidelines.

Subd. 2.

Small business set-asides; procurement and construction contract
preferences
.

(a) The commissioner may award up to a six percent preference in the
amount bid for specified construction work to small targeted group businesses and
veteran-owned small businesses.

(b) The commissioner may designate a contract for construction work for award only
to small targeted group businesses if the commissioner determines that at least three small
targeted group businesses are likely to bid. The commissioner may designate a contract for
construction work for award only to veteran-owned small businesses if the commissioner
determines that at least three veteran-owned small businesses are likely to bid.

(c) The commissioner, as a condition of awarding a construction contract, may
set goals that require the prime contractor to subcontract a portion of the contract to
small targeted group businesses and veteran-owned small businesses. The commissioner
must establish a procedure for granting waivers from the subcontracting requirement
when qualified small targeted group businesses and veteran-owned small businesses
are not reasonably available. The commissioner may establish financial incentives for
prime contractors who exceed the goals for use of subcontractors and financial penalties
for prime contractors who fail to meet goals under this paragraph. The subcontracting

colored lighted arrows indicate and apply to drivers of vehicles and pedestrians as follows:

(1) Green indication:

(i) Vehicular traffic facing a circular green signal may proceed straight through or
turn right or left unless a sign at such place prohibits either turn. But vehicular traffic,
including vehicles turning right or left, shall yield the right-of-way to other vehicles and to
pedestrians lawfully within the intersection or adjacent crosswalk at the time this signal
is exhibited. Vehicular traffic turning left or making a U-turn to the left shall yield the
right-of-way to other vehicles approaching from the opposite direction so closely as to
constitute an immediate hazard.

(ii) Vehicular traffic facing a green arrow signal, shown alone or in combination with
another indication, may cautiously enter the intersection only to make the movement
indicated by the arrow, or other movement as permitted by other indications shown at the
same time. Such Vehicular traffic shall yield the right-of-way to pedestrians lawfully
within an adjacent crosswalk and to other traffic lawfully using the intersection.

(iii) Unless otherwise directed by a pedestrian-control signal as provided in
subdivision 6, pedestrians facing any green signal, except when the sole green signal is a
turn arrow, may proceed across the roadway within any marked or unmarked crosswalk.
Every driver of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way to such pedestrian, except that the
pedestrian shall yield the right-of-way to vehicles lawfully within the intersection at the
time that the green signal indication is first shown.

(2) Steady yellow indication:

(i) Vehicular traffic facing a steady circular yellow or yellow arrow signal is thereby
warned that the related green movement is being terminated or that a red indication will be
exhibited immediately thereafter when vehicular traffic must not enter the intersection,
except for the continued movement allowed by any green arrow indication simultaneously
exhibited.

(ii) Pedestrians facing a circular yellow signal, unless otherwise directed by a
pedestrian-control signal as provided in subdivision 6, are thereby advised that there is
insufficient time to cross the roadway before a red indication is shown and no pedestrian
shall then start to cross the roadway.

(3) Steady red indication:

(i) Vehicular traffic facing a circular red signal alone must stop at a clearly marked
stop line but, if none, before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection
or, if none, then before entering the intersection and shall remain standing until a green
indication is shown, except as follows: (A) the driver of a vehicle stopped as close
as practicable at the entrance to the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection or,
if none, then at the entrance to the intersection in obedience to a red or stop signal,
and with the intention of making a right turn may make the right turn, after stopping,
unless an official sign has been erected prohibiting such movement, but shall yield the
right-of-way to pedestrians and other traffic lawfully proceeding as directed by the signal
at that intersection; or (B) the driver of a vehicle on a one-way street intersecting another
one-way street on which traffic moves to the left shall stop in obedience to a red or stop
signal and may then make a left turn into the one-way street, unless an official sign has
been erected prohibiting the movement, but shall yield the right-of-way to pedestrians and
other traffic lawfully proceeding as directed by the signal at that intersection.

(ii) Unless otherwise directed by a pedestrian-control signal as provided in
subdivision 6, pedestrians facing a steady red signal alone shall not enter the roadway.

(iii) Vehicular traffic facing a steady red arrow signal, with the intention of making a
movement indicated by the arrow, must stop at a clearly marked stop line but, if none,
before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection or, if none, then before
entering the intersection and must remain standing until a permissive signal indication
permitting the movement indicated by the red arrow is displayed, except as follows: when
an official sign has been erected permitting a turn on a red arrow signal, the vehicular
traffic facing a red arrow signal indication is permitted to enter the intersection to turn
right, or to turn left from a one-way street into a one-way street on which traffic moves
to the left, after stopping, but must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians and other traffic
lawfully proceeding as directed by the signal at that intersection.

(b) In the event an official traffic-control signal is erected and maintained at a place
other than an intersection, the provisions of this section are applicable except those which
can have no application. Any stop required must be made at a sign or marking on the
pavement indicating where the stop must be made, but in the absence of any such sign or
marking the stop must be made at the signal.

(c) When a traffic-control signal indication or indications placed to control a certain
movement or lane are so identified by placing a sign near the indication or indications,
no other traffic-control signal indication or indications within the intersection controls
vehicular traffic for that movement or lane.

of vehicles may proceed through the intersection or past the signals only with caution. But
vehicular traffic, including vehicles turning right or left, shall yield the right-of-way to
other vehicles and to pedestrians lawfully within the intersection or adjacent crosswalk at
the time this signal is exhibited. Vehicular traffic turning left or making a U-turn to the left
shall yield the right-of-way to other vehicles approaching from the opposite direction so
closely as to constitute an immediate hazard.

a participant whose driver's license has been suspended;

(2) the reinstatement fee under Minnesota Statutes, section 171.29, subdivision 2,

surcharge under Minnesota Statutes, section 171.29, subdivision 2, paragraph (b), must be
applied first toward payment of the reinstatement fee, and after the reinstatement fee has

the reinstatement fee must be credited as provided in Minnesota Statutes, section 171.29,
subdivision 2
, paragraph (b), and each payment that is applied toward the surcharge must
be credited as provided in Minnesota Statutes, section 171.29, subdivision 2, paragraphs

of the diversion; or

(3) the third-party administrator informs the court, the prosecutor, and the

to prosecute.
