(c) As part of the standards or rules, the commissioner shall, in consultation with local
road authorities, establish a minimum distance between any two bridges that cross over the

under section 169A.52, 169A.54, 171.177, 609.2112, 609.2113, or 609.2114, or Minnesota
Statutes 2012, section 609.21, must pay a $30 fee before the driver's license is reinstated.

(b) A person whose driver's license has been revoked as provided in subdivision 1 under
section 169A.52, 169A.54, 171.177, 609.2112, 609.2113, or 609.2114, or Minnesota Statutes
2012, section 609.21, must pay a $250 fee plus a $430 surcharge before the driver's license
is reinstated, except as provided in paragraph (f). The $250 fee is to be credited as follows:

(1) Twenty percent must be credited to the driver services operating account in the
special revenue fund as specified in section 299A.705.

(2) Sixty-seven percent must be credited to the general fund.

(3) Eight percent must be credited to a separate account to be known as the Bureau of
Criminal Apprehension account. Money in this account is annually appropriated to the
commissioner of public safety and the appropriated amount must be apportioned 80 percent
for laboratory costs and 20 percent for carrying out the provisions of section 299C.065.

(4) Five percent must be credited to a separate account to be known as the vehicle
forfeiture account, which is created in the special revenue fund. The money in the account
is annually appropriated to the commissioner for costs of handling vehicle forfeitures.

(c) The revenue from $50 of the surcharge must be credited to a separate account to be
known as the traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury account. The revenue from $50
of the surcharge on a reinstatement under paragraph (f) is credited from the first installment
payment to the traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury account. The money in the
account is annually appropriated to the commissioner of health to be used as follows: 83
percent for contracts with a qualified community-based organization to provide information,
resources, and support to assist persons with traumatic brain injury and their families to
access services, and 17 percent to maintain the traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury
registry created in section 144.662. For the purposes of this paragraph, a "qualified
community-based organization" is a private, not-for-profit organization of consumers of
traumatic brain injury services and their family members. The organization must be registered
with the United States Internal Revenue Service under section 501(c)(3) as a tax-exempt
organization and must have as its purposes:

and consequences of traumatic brain injury;

(2) the provision of a network of support for persons with traumatic brain injury, their
families, and friends;

(3) the development and support of programs and services to prevent traumatic brain
injury;

(4) the establishment of education programs for persons with traumatic brain injury; and

(5) the empowerment of persons with traumatic brain injury through participation in its
governance.

A patient's name, identifying information, or identifiable medical data must not be disclosed
to the organization without the informed voluntary written consent of the patient or patient's
guardian or, if the patient is a minor, of the parent or guardian of the patient.

(d) The remainder of the surcharge must be credited to a separate account to be known
as the remote electronic alcohol-monitoring program account. The commissioner shall
transfer the balance of this account to the commissioner of management and budget on a
monthly basis for deposit in the general fund.

(e) When these fees are collected by a licensing agent, appointed under section 171.061,
a handling charge is imposed in the amount specified under section 171.061, subdivision
4
. The reinstatement fees and surcharge must be deposited in an approved depository as
directed under section 171.061, subdivision 4.

(f) A person whose driver's license has been revoked as provided in subdivision 1 under
section 169A.52, 169A.54, or 171.177 deleted text beginand who the court certifies as being financially
eligible for a public defender under section 611.17,
deleted text end may choose to pay 50 percent and an
additional $25 of the total amount of the surcharge and 50 percent of the fee required under
paragraph (b) to reinstate the person's driver's license, provided the person meets all other
requirements of reinstatement. If a person chooses to pay 50 percent of the total and an
additional $25, the driver's license must expire after two years. The person must pay an
additional 50 percent less $25 of the total to extend the license for an additional two years,
provided the person is otherwise still eligible for the license. After this final payment of the
surcharge and fee, the license may be renewed on a standard schedule, as provided under
section 171.27. A handling charge may be imposed for each installment payment. Revenue
from the handling charge is credited to the driver services operating account in the special
revenue fund and is appropriated to the commissioner.

(g) Any person making installment payments under paragraph (f), whose driver's license
subsequently expires, or is canceled, revoked, or suspended before payment of 100 percent
of the surcharge and fee, must pay the outstanding balance due for the initial reinstatement
before the driver's license is subsequently reinstated. Upon payment of the outstanding
balance due for the initial reinstatement, the person may pay any new surcharge and fee
imposed under paragraph (b) in installment payments as provided under paragraph (f).

Bureau of Mediation Services; or

(2) in a city of the first class.

The State Patrol must also be included in the survey.

(b) The legislative auditor must base the survey on compensation and benefits for the
past completed calendar year. The survey must be based on full-time equivalent employees.
The legislative auditor must calculate compensation using base salary, overtime wages, and
premium pay. Premium pay is payment that is received by a majority of employees and
includes but is not limited to education pay and longevity pay. The legislative auditor must
not include any payments made to officers or troopers for work performed for an entity
other than the agency that employs the officer or trooper, regardless of who makes the
payment. The legislative auditor must also include in the survey all benefits, including
insurance, retirement, and pension benefits. The legislative auditor must include contributions
from both the employee and employer when determining benefits.

(c) The legislative auditor must compile the survey results into a report. The report must
show each department separately. For each department, the survey must include:

(1) an explanation of the salary structure, and include minimum and maximum salaries
for each range or step; and

(2) an explanation of benefits offered, including the options that are offered and the
employee and employer contribution for each option.

the same table or grid format to facilitate easy comparison.

the survey report to the chairs and ranking minority members of the house of representatives
and senate committees with jurisdiction over the State Patrol budget.

(e) It is the legislature's intent to use the information in this study to compare salaries

increases to patrol trooper salaries. For purposes of this paragraph, "patrol troopers" has the
meaning given in subdivision 2, paragraph (a).
