escaped to western countries to start a new life. Each year, the governor shall issue a

240A.09 PLAN DEVELOPMENT; CRITERIA.

The Minnesota Amateur Sports Commission shall develop a plan to promote the
development of proposals for new statewide public ice facilities including proposals for ice
centers and matching grants based on the criteria in this section.

from more than one local government unit. Institutions of higher education are not eligible
to receive a grant.

(b) The commission must give priority to grant applications for indoor air quality
improvements and projects that eliminate R-22. For purposes of this section:

(1) "indoor air quality improvements" means: (i) renovation or replacement of heating,
ventilating, and air conditioning systems in existing indoor ice arenas whose ice resurfacing
and ice edging equipment are not powered by electricity in order to reduce concentrations
of carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide; and (ii) acquisition of zero-emission ice resurfacing
and ice edging equipment. The new or renovated systems may include continuous electronic
air monitoring devices to automatically activate the ventilation systems when the
concentration of carbon monoxide or nitrogen dioxide reaches a predetermined level; and

(2) "projects that eliminate R-22," means replacement of ice-making systems in existing
public facilities that use R-22 as a refrigerant, with systems that use alternative
non-ozone-depleting refrigerants.

(c) In the metropolitan area as defined in section 473.121, subdivision 2, the commission
is encouraged to give priority to the following proposals:

(1) proposals for construction of two or more ice sheets in a single new facility;

(2) proposals for construction of an additional sheet of ice at an existing ice center;

(3) proposals for construction of a new, single sheet of ice as part of a sports complex
with multiple sports facilities; and

(4) proposals for construction of a new, single sheet of ice that will be expanded to a
two-sheet facility in the future.

(d) The commission shall administer a site selection process for the ice centers. The
commission shall invite proposals from cities or counties or consortia of cities. A proposal
for an ice center must include matching contributions including in-kind contributions of
land, access roadways and access roadway improvements, and necessary utility services,
landscaping, and parking.

(e) Proposals for ice centers and matching grants must provide for meeting the demand
for ice time for female groups by offering up to 50 percent of prime ice time, as needed, to
female groups. For purposes of this section, prime ice time means the hours of 4:00 p.m.
to 10:00 p.m. Monday to Friday and 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

(f) The location for all proposed facilities must be in areas of maximum demonstrated
interest and must maximize accessibility to an arterial highway.

(g) To the extent possible, all proposed facilities must be dispersed equitably, must be
located to maximize potential for full utilization and profitable operation, and must
accommodate noncompetitive family and community skating for all ages.

(h) The commission may also use the money to upgrade current facilities, purchase girls'
ice time, or conduct amateur women's hockey and other ice sport tournaments.

(i) To the extent possible, 50 percent of all grants must be awarded to communities in
greater Minnesota.

(j) To the extent possible, technical assistance shall be provided to Minnesota
communities by the commission on ice arena planning, design, and operation, including the
marketing of ice time and on projects described in paragraph (b).

(k) A grant for new facilities may not exceed $250,000.

(l) The commission may make grants for rehabilitation and renovation. A rehabilitation
or renovation grant for air quality may not exceed $200,000 and a rehabilitation or renovation
grant for R-22 elimination may not exceed deleted text begin$50,000deleted text endnew text begin $250,000new text end for indirect cooling systems
and may not exceed deleted text begin$400,000deleted text endnew text begin $500,000new text end for direct cooling systems. Priority must be given
to grant applications for indoor air quality improvements, including zero emission ice
resurfacing equipment, and for projects that eliminate R-22.

(m) Grant money may be used for ice centers designed for sports other than hockey.

(n) Grant money may be used to upgrade existing facilities to comply with the bleacher
safety requirements of section 326B.112.

new text begin Authority to appoint certain officers. new text end

new text begin A county board may appoint the
county auditor, county treasurer, or county recorder under section 375A.10, subdivision 2,
or the auditor-treasurer under section 375A.10, subdivision 5, by following the process
outlined in this section. Notwithstanding section 375A.12, a referendum is not required if
the appointment is made pursuant to this section. A county board shall only use the authority
to appoint under the following circumstances:
new text end

new text begin (1) there is a vacancy in the office as provided in section 351.02;
new text end

new text begin (2) the current office holder has notified the county board that the officer will not file
for the office, as provided in subdivision 2; or
new text end

new text begin (3) there is a signed contract with the county board and the incumbent auditor, treasurer,
auditor-treasurer, or recorder that provides that the incumbent officer will be appointed to
the position and retain tenure, pay, and benefits equal to or greater than length of service.
new text end

new text begin Subd. 2. new text end

new text begin Responsibility of county officer. new text end

new text begin At least 104 days before the filing date for
office under section 204B.09, an elected county officer must notify the county board in
writing whether the officer will be filing for another term. If the officer indicates in writing
that the officer will not file for the office and the county board has passed a resolution under
subdivision 6, affidavits of candidacy will not be accepted for that office, and the office
will not be placed on the ballot.
new text end

new text begin Subd. 3. new text end

new text begin Board controls; may change as long as duties done. new text end

new text begin Upon adoption of a
resolution by the county board of commissioners and subject to subdivisions 5 and 6, the
duties of an elected official required by statute whose office is made appointive as authorized
by this section must be discharged by the county board of commissioners acting through a
department head appointed by the board for that purpose. Reorganization, reallocation,
delegation, or other administrative change or transfer does not diminish, prohibit, or avoid
the discharge of duties required by statute.
new text end

new text begin Subd. 4. new text end

new text begin Discharge or demotion. new text end

new text begin (a) A county auditor, county treasurer, county
auditor-treasurer, or county recorder who was elected at the most recent election for that
office prior to a county board resolution to make the office an appointed position, and the
elected official is subsequently appointed by the county board to the office, may not be
involuntarily demoted or discharged except for incompetency or misconduct.
new text end

new text begin (b) Prior to demoting or discharging an office holder under this subdivision, the board
must notify the office holder in writing and state its grounds for the proposed demotion or
discharge in reasonable detail. Within ten days after receipt of this notification, the office
holder may make a written request for a hearing before an arbitrator and the request must
be granted before final action is taken. Failure to request a hearing before an arbitrator
during this period is considered acquiescence to the board's action. The board may suspend
an office holder with pay pending the conclusion of the hearing and determination of the
issues raised in the hearing after charges have been filed which constitute grounds for
demotion or discharge. If an office holder has been charged with a felony and the underlying
conduct that is the subject of the felony charge is grounds for a proposed discharge, the
suspension pending the conclusion of the hearing and determination of the issues may be
without pay. If a hearing under this subdivision is held, the board must reimburse the office
holder for any salary or compensation withheld if the final decision of the arbitrator does
not result in a penalty or discharge of the office holder.
new text end

new text begin (c) If the office holder and the board are unable to mutually agree on an arbitrator, the
board must request from the Bureau of Mediation Services a list of seven persons qualified
to serve as an arbitrator. If the office holder and the board are unable to mutually agree on
an arbitrator from the list provided, the parties shall alternately strike names from the list
until the name of one arbitrator remains. The person remaining after the striking procedure
must be the arbitrator. If the parties are unable to agree on who shall strike the first name,
the question must be decided by a flip of a coin. The office holder and the board must share
equally the costs and fees of the arbitrator except as set forth in paragraph (g).
new text end

new text begin (d) The arbitrator shall determine, by a preponderance of the evidence, whether the
grounds for discharge or demotion exist to support the proposed discharge or demotion. A
lesser penalty than demotion or discharge may be imposed by the arbitrator only to the
extent that either party proposes such lesser penalty in the proceeding. In making the
determination, the arbitration proceeding is governed by sections 572B.15 to 572B.28.
new text end

new text begin (e) An arbitration hearing conducted under this subdivision is a meeting for preliminary
consideration of allegations or charges within the meaning of section 13D.05, subdivision
3, paragraph (a), and must be closed, unless the office holder requests it to be open.
new text end

new text begin (f) The arbitrator's award is final and binding on the parties, subject to sections 572B.18
to 572B.28.
new text end

new text begin (g) In the event the arbitrator rules not to demote or discharge the office holder, the
board shall pay all of the costs and fees of the arbitrator and the attorney fees of the office
holder.

the issue once each week, for two consecutive weeks, in the official publication of the
county. Following publication and prior to formally adopting the resolution, the county
board shall provide an opportunity at its next regular meeting for public comment relating
to the issue. After the public comment opportunity, at the same meeting or a subsequent
meeting, the county board of commissioners may adopt a resolution that provides for the
appointment of the office or offices as permitted in this section. The resolution must be
approved by at least 80 percent of the members of the county board. The resolution may
take effect 30 days after it is adopted, or at a later date stated in the resolution, unless a
petition is filed as provided in paragraph (b).
new text end

new text begin (b) Except when an office is made appointive under subdivision 1, clause (3), within 30
days after the county board adopts the resolution, a petition requesting a referendum may
be filed with the county auditor. The petition must be signed by at least ten percent of the
registered voters of the county. The petition must meet the requirements of the secretary of
state, as provided in section 204B.071, and any rules adopted to implement that section. If
the petition is sufficient, the county board resolution is rescinded.

board must publish a proposed resolution notifying the public of its intent to consider the
issue once each week, for two consecutive weeks, in the official publication of the county.
Following publication and before formally adopting the resolution, the county board must
provide an opportunity at its next regular meeting for public comment relating to the issue.
After the public comment opportunity, at the same meeting or a subsequent meeting, the
county board of commissioners may adopt the resolution. The resolution must be approved
by at least 60 percent of the members of the county board and is effective August 1 following
adoption of the resolution.
new text end

new text begin (b) The question of whether an office that was made an appointed position under this
section must be made an elected office must be placed on the ballot at the next general
election if (1) the position has been an appointed position for at least three years; (2) a
petition signed by at least ten percent of the registered voters of the county is filed with the
office of the county auditor by August 1 of the year in which the general election is held;
and (3) the petition meets the requirements of the secretary of state, as provided in section
204B.071, and any rules adopted to implement that section. If a majority of the voters of
the county voting on the question vote in favor of making the office an elected position, the
election for that office must be held at the next regular or special election.

Sec. 5.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 16A.15, subdivision 3, is amended to read:


Subd. 3.

Allotment and encumbrance.

(a) A payment may not be made without prior
obligation. An obligation may not be incurred against any fund, allotment, or appropriation
unless the commissioner has certified a sufficient unencumbered balance or the accounting
system shows sufficient allotment or encumbrance balance in the fund, allotment, or
appropriation to meet it. The commissioner shall determine when the accounting system
may be used to incur obligations without the commissioner's certification of a sufficient
unencumbered balance. An expenditure or obligation authorized or incurred in violation of
this chapter is invalid and ineligible for payment until made valid. A payment made in
violation of this chapter is illegal. An employee authorizing or making the payment, or
taking part in it, and a person receiving any part of the payment, are jointly and severally
liable to the state for the amount paid or received. If an employee knowingly incurs an
obligation or authorizes or makes an expenditure in violation of this chapter or takes part
in the violation, the violation is just cause for the employee's removal by the appointing
authority or by the governor if an appointing authority other than the governor fails to do
so. In the latter case, the governor shall give notice of the violation and an opportunity to
be heard on it to the employee and to the appointing authority. A claim presented against
an appropriation without prior allotment or encumbrance may be made valid on investigation,
review, and approval by the agency head in accordance with the commissioner's policy, if
the services, materials, or supplies to be paid for were actually furnished in good faith
without collusion and without intent to defraud. The commissioner may then deleted text begindraw a warrant
to
deleted text end pay the claim just as properly allotted and encumbered claims are paid.

(b) The commissioner may approve payment for materials and supplies in excess of the
obligation amount when increases are authorized by section 16C.03, subdivision 3.

(c) To minimize potential construction delay claims, an agency with a project funded
by a building appropriation may allow a contractor to proceed with supplemental work
within the limits of the appropriation before money is encumbered. Under this circumstance,
the agency may requisition funds and allow contractors to expeditiously proceed with a
construction sequence. While the contractor is proceeding, the agency shall immediately
act to encumber the required funds.

deceased employee, then upon at least ten days' notice to the self-insurer, the commissioner
of commerce may by written order to the commissioner of management and budget require
the commissioner of management and budget to sell the pledged and assigned securities or
a part thereof necessary to pay the full amount of any such claim or award with interest
thereon. This authority to sell may be exercised from time to time to satisfy any order or
award of the commissioner of labor and industry or any judgment obtained thereon. When
securities are sold the money obtained shall be deposited in the state treasury to the credit
of the commissioner of commerce and awards made against any such self-insurer by the
commissioner of commerce shall be paid to the persons entitled thereto by the commissioner
of management and budget upon deleted text beginwarrants prepareddeleted text endnew text begin payments requestednew text end by the commissioner
of commerce out of the proceeds of the sale of securities. Where the security is in the form

of the award, the payments to be enforced in like manner as the award may be enforced.

(b) No association, corporation, partnership, sole proprietorship, trust or other business
entity shall provide services in the design, establishment or administration of a group
self-insurance plan under rules adopted pursuant to this subdivision unless it is licensed, or
exempt from licensure, pursuant to section 60A.23, subdivision 8, to do so by the
commissioner of commerce. An applicant for a license shall state in writing the type of
activities it seeks authorization to engage in and the type of services it seeks authorization
to provide. The license shall be granted only when the commissioner of commerce is satisfied
that the entity possesses the necessary organization, background, expertise, and financial
integrity to supply the services sought to be offered. The commissioner of commerce may
issue a license subject to restrictions or limitations, including restrictions or limitations on
the type of services which may be supplied or the activities which may be engaged in. The
license is for a two-year period.

fair and capable fashion, and able to process claims and pay benefits in a prompt, fair and
equitable manner, entities licensed to engage in such business are subject to supervision
and examination by the commissioner of commerce.

(d) To carry out the purposes of this subdivision, the commissioner of commerce may
promulgate administrative rules pursuant to sections 14.001 to 14.69. These rules may:

(1) establish reporting requirements for administrators of group self-insurance plans;

(2) establish standards and guidelines consistent with subdivision 2b to assure the
adequacy of the financing and administration of group self-insurance plans;

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 354.42, subdivision 7, is amended to read:


Subd. 7.

Erroneous salary deductions or direct payments.

(a) Any deductions taken
from the salary of an employee for the retirement fund in excess of amounts required must
be refunded to the employee upon the discovery of the error and after the verification of
the error by the employing unit making the deduction. The corresponding excess employer
contribution and excess additional employer contribution amounts attributable to the
erroneous salary deduction must be refunded to the employing unit.

(b) If salary deductions and employer contributions were erroneously transmitted to the
retirement fund and should have been transmitted to the plan covered by chapter 352D,
353D, 354B, or 354D, the executive director must transfer these salary deductions and
employer contributions to the account of the appropriate person under the applicable plan.
The transfer to the applicable defined contribution plan account must include interest at the
rate of 0.71 percent per month, compounded annually, from the first day of the month
following the month in which coverage should have commenced in the defined contribution
plan until the end of the month in which the transfer occurs.

(c) A potential transfer under paragraph (b) that would cause the plan to fail to be a
qualified plan under section 401(a) of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended, must not be
made by the executive director. Within 30 days after being notified by the Teachers
Retirement Association of an unmade potential transfer under this paragraph, the employer
of the affected person must transmit an amount representing the applicable salary deductions
and employer contributions, without interest, to the account of the applicable person under
the appropriate plan. The retirement association must provide a credit for the amount of the
erroneous salary deductions and employer contributions against future contributions from
the employer.

(e) Erroneous direct payments of member-paid contributions or erroneous salary
deductions that were not refunded during the regular payroll cycle processing must be
refunded to the member, plus interest computed using the rate and method specified in
section 354.49, subdivision 2.

(f) Any refund under this subdivision that would cause the plan to fail to be a qualified
plan under section 401(a) of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended, may not be refunded
and instead must be credited against future contributions payable by the employer. The
employer is responsible for refunding to the applicable employee any amount that was
erroneously deducted from the salary of the employee, with interest as specified in paragraph
(e).

(g) If erroneous employee deductions and employer contributions are caused by an error
in plan coverage involving the plan and any other plan specified in section 356.99, that
section applies.

Subd. 4.

Prohibitions.

It is a gross misdemeanor for a person named in an exclusion

commission and must be given a public hearing on the appeal upon request. At the hearing
the person must be given the opportunity to show cause why the exclusion should not have

corrective action is required to prevent further such violations and to otherwise protect the
public. Warnings may be used by the board, or the complaint committee if authorized by
the board, where the violation of the person or firm is de minimus, does not warrant
disciplinary action under this subdivision or subdivision 4 or 6, and does not require
corrective action to protect the public.

the person's or firm's application, permit, registration or certificate, or practice privileges
