Subd. 3.

Agency disclosure form.

The agency disclosure form shall be in
substantially the form set forth below:

AGENCY RELATIONSHIPS IN REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS

Minnesota law requires that early in any relationship, real estate brokers or salespersons
discuss with consumers what type of agency representation or relationship they desire.(1)
The available options are listed below. This is not a contract. This is an agency
disclosure form only. If you desire representation, you must enter into a written
contract according to state law
(a listing contract or a buyer representation contract).
Until such time as you choose to enter into a written contract for representation, you
will be treated as a customer and will not receive any representation from the broker or
salesperson. The broker or salesperson will be acting as a Facilitator (see paragraph deleted text beginVdeleted text endnew text begin IV
new text endbelow), unless the broker or salesperson is representing another party as described below.

ACKNOWLEDGMENT: I/We acknowledge that I/We have been presented with the
below-described options. I/We understand that until I/We have signed a representation
contract, I/We are not represented by the broker/salesperson. I/We understand that written
consent is required for a dual agency relationship. THIS IS A DISCLOSURE ONLY, NOT
A CONTRACT FOR REPRESENTATION.

.
.
Signature
Date
.
.
Signature
Date

I.

Seller's Broker: A broker who lists a property, or a salesperson who is licensed to
the listing broker, represents the Seller and acts on behalf of the Seller. A Seller's
broker owes to the Seller the fiduciary duties described below.(2) The broker
must also disclose to the Buyer material facts as defined in Minnesota Statutes,
section 82.68, subdivision 3, of which the broker is aware that could adversely and
significantly affect the Buyer's use or enjoyment of the property. If a broker or
salesperson working with a Buyer as a customer is representing the Seller, he or she
must act in the Seller's best interest and must tell the Seller any information disclosed
to him or her, except confidential information acquired in a facilitator relationship
(see paragraph deleted text beginVdeleted text endnew text begin IVnew text end below). In that case, the Buyer will not be represented and will
not receive advice and counsel from the broker or salesperson.

II.

Buyer's Broker: A Buyer may enter into an agreement for the broker or salesperson
to represent and act on behalf of the Buyer. The broker may represent the Buyer
only, and not the Seller, even if he or she is being paid in whole or in part by the
Seller. A Buyer's broker owes to the Buyer the fiduciary duties described below.(2)
The broker must disclose to the Buyer material facts as defined in Minnesota
Statutes, section 82.68, subdivision 3, of which the broker is aware that could
adversely and significantly affect the Buyer's use or enjoyment of the property. If
a broker or salesperson working with a Seller as a customer is representing the
Buyer, he or she must act in the Buyer's best interest and must tell the Buyer any
information disclosed to him or her, except confidential information acquired in a
facilitator relationship (see paragraph deleted text beginVdeleted text endnew text begin IVnew text end below). In that case, the Seller will not be
represented and will not receive advice and counsel from the broker or salesperson.

III.

Dual Agency-Broker Representing both Seller and Buyer: Dual agency occurs
when one broker or salesperson represents both parties to a transaction, or when two
salespersons licensed to the same broker each represent a party to the transaction.
Dual agency requires the informed consent of all parties, and means that the broker
and salesperson owe the same duties to the Seller and the Buyer. This role limits the
level of representation the broker and salespersons can provide, and prohibits them
from acting exclusively for either party. In a dual agency, confidential information
about price, terms, and motivation for pursuing a transaction will be kept confidential
unless one party instructs the broker or salesperson in writing to disclose specific
information about him or her. Other information will be shared. Dual agents may
not advocate for one party to the detriment of the other.(3)

Within the limitations described above, dual agents owe to both Seller and Buyer the
fiduciary duties described below.(2) Dual agents must disclose to Buyers material
facts as defined in Minnesota Statutes, section 82.68, subdivision 3, of which the
broker is aware that could adversely and significantly affect the Buyer's use or
enjoyment of the property.

IV.

Facilitator: A broker or salesperson who performs services for a Buyer, a Seller, or
both but does not represent either in a fiduciary capacity as a Buyer's Broker, Seller's
Broker, or Dual Agent. THE FACILITATOR BROKER OR SALESPERSON
DOES NOT OWE ANY PARTY ANY OF THE FIDUCIARY DUTIES LISTED
BELOW, EXCEPT CONFIDENTIALITY, UNLESS THOSE DUTIES ARE
INCLUDED IN A WRITTEN FACILITATOR SERVICES AGREEMENT.
The
facilitator broker or salesperson owes the duty of confidentiality to the party but
owes no other duty to the party except those duties required by law or contained in
a written facilitator services agreement, if any. In the event a facilitator broker or
salesperson, working with a Buyer, shows a property listed by the facilitator broker
or salesperson, then the facilitator broker or salesperson must act as a Seller's Broker
(see paragraph I above). In the event a facilitator broker or salesperson, working
with a Seller, accepts a showing of the property by a Buyer being represented by the
facilitator broker or salesperson, then the facilitator broker or salesperson must act
as a Buyer's Broker (see paragraph III above).

.

(1) This disclosure is required by law in any transaction involving property occupied
or intended to be occupied by one to four families as their residence.

(2) The fiduciary duties mentioned above are listed below and have the following
meanings:

Loyalty-broker/salesperson will act only in client(s)' best interest.

Obedience-broker/salesperson will carry out all client(s)' lawful instructions.

Disclosure-broker/salesperson will disclose to client(s) all material facts of which
broker/salesperson has knowledge which might reasonably affect the client's use and
enjoyment of the property.

Confidentiality-broker/salesperson will keep client(s)' confidences unless required
by law to disclose specific information (such as disclosure of material facts to Buyers).

Reasonable Care-broker/salesperson will use reasonable care in performing duties as
an agent.

Accounting-broker/salesperson will account to client(s) for all client(s)' money
and property received as agent.

(3) If Seller(s) elect(s) not to agree to a dual agency relationship, Seller(s) may give
up the opportunity to sell the property to Buyers represented by the broker/salesperson.
If Buyer(s) elect(s) not to agree to a dual agency relationship, Buyer(s) may give up the
opportunity to purchase properties listed by the broker.

Sec. 10.

Minnesota Statutes 2014, section 82.72, subdivision 3, is amended to read:


Subd. 3.

Retention.

A licensed real estate broker shall retain for six years copies
of all listings, buyer representation and facilitator services contracts, deposit receipts,
purchase money contracts, canceled checks, trust account records, and such other
documents as may reasonably be related to carrying on a real estate brokerage business.
The retention period shall run from the date of the closing of the transaction, or from
the date of the deleted text beginclosingdeleted text end document if the transaction is not consummated. The following
documents need not be retained:

(1) agency disclosure forms provided to prospective buyers or sellers, where no
contractual relationship is subsequently created and no services are provided by the
licensee; and

(2) facilitator services contracts or buyer representation contracts entered into with
prospective buyers, where the prospective buyer abandons the contractual relationship
before any services have been provided by the licensee.

Sec. 11.

Minnesota Statutes 2014, section 116D.04, subdivision 2a, is amended to read:


Subd. 2a.

When prepared.

Where there is potential for significant environmental
effects resulting from any major governmental action, the action shall be preceded by a
detailed environmental impact statement prepared by the responsible governmental unit.
The environmental impact statement shall be an analytical rather than an encyclopedic
document which describes the proposed action in detail, analyzes its significant
environmental impacts, discusses appropriate alternatives to the proposed action and
their impacts, and explores methods by which adverse environmental impacts of an
action could be mitigated. The environmental impact statement shall also analyze those
economic, employment, and sociological effects that cannot be avoided should the action
be implemented. To ensure its use in the decision-making process, the environmental
impact statement shall be prepared as early as practical in the formulation of an action.

(a) The board shall by rule establish categories of actions for which environmental
impact statements and for which environmental assessment worksheets shall be prepared
as well as categories of actions for which no environmental review is required under this
section. A mandatory environmental assessment worksheet shall not be required for the
expansion of an ethanol plant, as defined in section 41A.09, subdivision 2a, paragraph
(b), or the conversion of an ethanol plant to a biobutanol facility or the expansion of a
biobutanol facility as defined in section 41A.105, subdivision 1a, based on the capacity
of the expanded or converted facility to produce alcohol fuel, but must be required if
the ethanol plant or biobutanol facility meets or exceeds thresholds of other categories
of actions for which environmental assessment worksheets must be prepared. The
responsible governmental unit for an ethanol plant or biobutanol facility project for which
an environmental assessment worksheet is prepared shall be the state agency with the
greatest responsibility for supervising or approving the project as a whole.

A mandatory environmental impact statement shall not be required for a facility
or plant located outside the seven-county metropolitan area that produces less than
125,000,000 gallons of ethanol, biobutanol, or cellulosic biofuel annually, or produces less
than 400,000 tons of chemicals annually, if the facility or plant is: an ethanol plant, as
defined in section 41A.09, subdivision 2a, paragraph (b); a biobutanol facility, as defined
in section 41A.105, subdivision 1a, clause (1); or a cellulosic biofuel facilitydeleted text begin, as defined in
section 41A.10, subdivision 1, paragraph (d)
deleted text end. A facility or plant that only uses a cellulosic
feedstock to produce chemical products for use by another facility as a feedstock shall not
be considered a fuel conversion facility as used in rules adopted under this chapter.

(b) The responsible governmental unit shall promptly publish notice of the
completion of an environmental assessment worksheet by publishing the notice in at least
one newspaper of general circulation in the geographic area where the project is proposed,
by posting the notice on a Web site that has been designated as the official publication site
for publication of proceedings, public notices, and summaries of a political subdivision in
which the project is proposed, or in any other manner determined by the board and shall
provide copies of the environmental assessment worksheet to the board and its member
agencies. Comments on the need for an environmental impact statement may be submitted
to the responsible governmental unit during a 30-day period following publication of the
notice that an environmental assessment worksheet has been completed. The responsible
governmental unit's decision on the need for an environmental impact statement shall be
based on the environmental assessment worksheet and the comments received during the
comment period, and shall be made within 15 days after the close of the comment period.
The board's chair may extend the 15-day period by not more than 15 additional days upon
the request of the responsible governmental unit.

(c) An environmental assessment worksheet shall also be prepared for a proposed
action whenever material evidence accompanying a petition by not less than 100
individuals who reside or own property in the state, submitted before the proposed
project has received final approval by the appropriate governmental units, demonstrates
that, because of the nature or location of a proposed action, there may be potential for
significant environmental effects. Petitions requesting the preparation of an environmental
assessment worksheet shall be submitted to the board. The chair of the board shall
determine the appropriate responsible governmental unit and forward the petition to it.
A decision on the need for an environmental assessment worksheet shall be made by
the responsible governmental unit within 15 days after the petition is received by the
responsible governmental unit. The board's chair may extend the 15-day period by not
more than 15 additional days upon request of the responsible governmental unit.

(d) Except in an environmentally sensitive location where Minnesota Rules, part
4410.4300, subpart 29, item B, applies, the proposed action is exempt from environmental
review under this chapter and rules of the board, if:

(1) the proposed action is:

(i) an animal feedlot facility with a capacity of less than 1,000 animal units; or

(ii) an expansion of an existing animal feedlot facility with a total cumulative
capacity of less than 1,000 animal units;

(2) the application for the animal feedlot facility includes a written commitment by
the proposer to design, construct, and operate the facility in full compliance with Pollution
Control Agency feedlot rules; and

(3) the county board holds a public meeting for citizen input at least ten business
days prior to the Pollution Control Agency or county issuing a feedlot permit for the
animal feedlot facility unless another public meeting for citizen input has been held with
regard to the feedlot facility to be permitted. The exemption in this paragraph is in
addition to other exemptions provided under other law and rules of the board.

(e) The board may, prior to final approval of a proposed project, require preparation
of an environmental assessment worksheet by a responsible governmental unit selected
by the board for any action where environmental review under this section has not been
specifically provided for by rule or otherwise initiated.

(f) An early and open process shall be utilized to limit the scope of the environmental
impact statement to a discussion of those impacts, which, because of the nature or location
of the project, have the potential for significant environmental effects. The same process
shall be utilized to determine the form, content and level of detail of the statement as well
as the alternatives which are appropriate for consideration in the statement. In addition,
the permits which will be required for the proposed action shall be identified during the
scoping process. Further, the process shall identify those permits for which information
will be developed concurrently with the environmental impact statement. The board
shall provide in its rules for the expeditious completion of the scoping process. The
determinations reached in the process shall be incorporated into the order requiring the
preparation of an environmental impact statement.

(g) The responsible governmental unit shall, to the extent practicable, avoid
duplication and ensure coordination between state and federal environmental review
and between environmental review and environmental permitting. Whenever practical,
information needed by a governmental unit for making final decisions on permits
or other actions required for a proposed project shall be developed in conjunction
with the preparation of an environmental impact statement. When an environmental
impact statement is prepared for a project requiring multiple permits for which two or
more agencies' decision processes include either mandatory or discretionary hearings
before a hearing officer prior to the agencies' decision on the permit, the agencies
may, notwithstanding any law or rule to the contrary, conduct the hearings in a single
consolidated hearing process if requested by the proposer. All agencies having jurisdiction
over a permit that is included in the consolidated hearing shall participate. The responsible
governmental unit shall establish appropriate procedures for the consolidated hearing
process, including procedures to ensure that the consolidated hearing process is consistent
with the applicable requirements for each permit regarding the rights and duties of parties to
the hearing, and shall utilize the earliest applicable hearing procedure to initiate the hearing.

(h) An environmental impact statement shall be prepared and its adequacy
determined within 280 days after notice of its preparation unless the time is extended by
consent of the parties or by the governor for good cause. The responsible governmental
unit shall determine the adequacy of an environmental impact statement, unless within 60
days after notice is published that an environmental impact statement will be prepared,
the board chooses to determine the adequacy of an environmental impact statement. If an
environmental impact statement is found to be inadequate, the responsible governmental
unit shall have 60 days to prepare an adequate environmental impact statement.

(i) The proposer of a specific action may include in the information submitted to the
responsible governmental unit a preliminary draft environmental impact statement under
this section on that action for review, modification, and determination of completeness and
adequacy by the responsible governmental unit. A preliminary draft environmental impact
statement prepared by the project proposer and submitted to the responsible governmental
unit shall identify or include as an appendix all studies and other sources of information
used to substantiate the analysis contained in the preliminary draft environmental impact
statement. The responsible governmental unit shall require additional studies, if needed,
and obtain from the project proposer all additional studies and information necessary for
the responsible governmental unit to perform its responsibility to review, modify, and
determine the completeness and adequacy of the environmental impact statement.

Early childhood literacy programs.

(a) A research-based early childhood
literacy program premised on actively involved parents, ongoing professional staff
development, and high quality early literacy program standards is established to increase
the literacy skills of children participating in Head Start to prepare them to be successful
readers and to increase families' participation in providing early literacy experiences to
their children. Program providers must:

(1) work to prepare children to be successful learners;

(2) work to close the achievement gap for at-risk children;

(3) use a culturally relevant integrated approach to early literacy that daily offers
a literacy-rich classroom learning environment composed of books, writing materials,
writing centers, labels, rhyming, and other related literacy materials and opportunities;

(4) support children's home language while helping the children master English and
use multiple literacy strategies to provide a cultural bridge between home and school;

(5) use literacy mentors, ongoing literacy groups, and other teachers and staff to
provide appropriate, extensive professional development opportunities in early literacy
and classroom strategies for preschool teachers and other preschool staff;

(6) use ongoing data-based assessments that enable preschool teachers to understand,
plan, and implement literacy strategies, activities, and curriculum that meet children's
literacy needs and continuously improve children's literacy;

(7) foster participation by parents, community stakeholders, literacy advisors, and
evaluation specialists; and

(8) provide parents of English learners with oral and written information to monitor
the program's impact on their children's English language development, to know whether
their children are progressing in developing their English proficiency and, where
practicable, their native language proficiency, and to actively engage with their children in
developing their English and native language proficiency.

Program providers are encouraged to collaborate with qualified, community-based
early childhood providers in implementing this program and to seek nonstate funds to
supplement the program.

(b) Program providers under paragraph (a) interested in extending literacy programs
to children in kindergarten through grade 3 may elect to form a partnership with an
eligible organization under section 124D.38, subdivision 2, or 124D.42, subdivision
deleted text begin6, clause (3)deleted text endnew text begin 8new text end, schools enrolling children in kindergarten through grade 3, and other

agree to use best efforts and practices and to work collaboratively to implement a seamless
literacy model from age three to grade 3, consistent with paragraph (a). Literacy programs
under this paragraph must collect and use literacy data to:

(1) evaluate children's literacy skills;

(2) monitor the progress and provide reading instruction appropriate to the specific
needs of English learners; and

(3) formulate specific intervention strategies to provide reading instruction to
children premised on the outcomes of formative and summative assessments and
research-based indicators of literacy development.

Sec. 18.

Minnesota Statutes 2014, section 124D.10, subdivision 4, is amended to read:


Subd. 4.

Formation of school.

(a) An authorizer, after receiving an application from
a school developer, may charter a licensed teacher under section 122A.18, subdivision
1
, or a group of individuals that includes one or more licensed teachers under section
122A.18, subdivision 1, to operate a school subject to the commissioner's approval of the
authorizer's affidavit under paragraph (b). The school must be organized and operated as a
nonprofit corporation under chapter 317A and the provisions under the applicable chapter
shall apply to the school except as provided in this section.

Notwithstanding sections 465.717 and 465.719, a school district, subject to this
section and section 124D.11, may create a corporation for the purpose of establishing a
charter school.

(b) Before the operators may establish and operate a school, the authorizer must file
an affidavit with the commissioner stating its intent to charter a school. An authorizer
must file a separate affidavit for each school it intends to charter. An authorizer must file
an affidavit by May 1 to be able to charter a new school in the next school year after the
commissioner approves the authorizer's affidavit. The affidavit must state the terms and
conditions under which the authorizer would charter a school and how the authorizer
intends to oversee the fiscal and student performance of the charter school and to comply
with the terms of the written contract between the authorizer and the charter school
board of directors under subdivision 6. The commissioner must approve or disapprove
the authorizer's affidavit within 60 business days of receipt of the affidavit. If the
commissioner disapproves the affidavit, the commissioner shall notify the authorizer of
the deficiencies in the affidavit and the authorizer then has 20 business days to address the
deficiencies. The commissioner must notify the authorizer of final approval or disapproval
within 15 business days after receiving the authorizer's response to the deficiencies in the
affidavit. If the authorizer does not address deficiencies to the commissioner's satisfaction,
the commissioner's disapproval is final. Failure to obtain commissioner approval precludes
an authorizer from chartering the school that is the subject of this affidavit.

(c) The authorizer may prevent an approved charter school from opening for
operation if, among other grounds, the charter school violates this section or does not meet
the ready-to-open standards that are part of the authorizer's oversight and evaluation
process or are stipulated in the charter school contract.

(d) The operators authorized to organize and operate a school, before entering into
a contract or other agreement for professional or other services, goods, or facilities,
must incorporate as a nonprofit corporation under chapter 317A and must establish a
board of directors composed of at least five members who are not related parties until a
timely election for members of the ongoing charter school board of directors is held
according to the school's articles and bylaws under paragraph deleted text begin(f)deleted text endnew text begin (g)new text end. A charter school
board of directors must be composed of at least five members who are not related parties.
Staff members employed at the school, including teachers providing instruction under a
contract with a cooperative, members of the board of directors, and all parents or legal
guardians of children enrolled in the school are the voters eligible to elect the members
of the school's board of directors. A charter school must notify eligible voters of the
school board election dates at least 30 days before the election. Board of director meetings
must comply with chapter 13D.

(e) A charter school shall publish and maintain on the school's official Web site: (1)
the minutes of meetings of the board of directors, and of members and committees having
any board-delegated authority, for at least one calendar year from the date of publication;
(2) directory information for members of the board of directors and committees having
board-delegated authority; and (3) identifying and contact information for the school's
authorizer. Identifying and contact information for the school's authorizer must be
included in other school materials made available to the public. Upon request of an
individual, the charter school must also make available in a timely fashion financial
statements showing all operations and transactions affecting income, surplus, and deficit
during the school's last annual accounting period; and a balance sheet summarizing assets
and liabilities on the closing date of the accounting period. A charter school also must
include that same information about its authorizer in other school materials that it makes
available to the public.

(f) Every charter school board member shall attend annual training throughout the
member's term on the board. All new board members shall attend initial training on
the board's role and responsibilities, employment policies and practices, and financial
management. A new board member who does not begin the required initial training within
six months after being seated and complete that training within 12 months of being seated
on the board is automatically ineligible to continue to serve as a board member. The
school shall include in its annual report the training attended by each board member
during the previous year.

(g) The ongoing board must be elected before the school completes its third year of
operation. Board elections must be held during the school year but may not be conducted
on days when the school is closed for holidays, breaks, or vacations. The charter school
board of directors shall be composed of at least five nonrelated members and include: (i)
at least one licensed teacher employed as a teacher at the school or providing instruction
under contract between the charter school and a cooperative; (ii) at least one parent or
legal guardian of a student enrolled in the charter school who is not an employee of
the charter school; and (iii) at least one interested community member who resides in
Minnesota and is not employed by the charter school and does not have a child enrolled
in the school. The board may include a majority of teachers described in this paragraph
or parents or community members, or it may have no clear majority. The chief financial
officer and the chief administrator may only serve as ex-officio nonvoting board members.
No charter school employees shall serve on the board other than teachers under item (i).
Contractors providing facilities, goods, or services to a charter school shall not serve on
the board of directors of the charter school. Board bylaws shall outline the process and
procedures for changing the board's governance structure, consistent with chapter 317A.
A board may change its governance structure only:

(1) by a majority vote of the board of directors and a majority vote of the licensed
teachers employed by the school as teachers, including licensed teachers providing
instruction under a contract between the school and a cooperative; and

(2) with the authorizer's approval.

Any change in board governance structure must conform with the composition of
the board established under this paragraph.

(h) The granting or renewal of a charter by an authorizer must not be conditioned
upon the bargaining unit status of the employees of the school.

(i) The granting or renewal of a charter school by an authorizer must not be
contingent on the charter school being required to contract, lease, or purchase services
from the authorizer. Any potential contract, lease, or purchase of service from an
authorizer must be disclosed to the commissioner, accepted through an open bidding
process, and be a separate contract from the charter contract. The school must document
the open bidding process. An authorizer must not enter into a contract to provide
management and financial services for a school that it authorizes, unless the school
documents that it received at least two competitive bids.

(j) A charter school may apply to the authorizer to amend the school charter to
expand the operation of the school to additional grades or sites that would be students'
primary enrollment site beyond those defined in the original affidavit approved by the
commissioner. After approving the school's application, the authorizer shall submit a
supplementary affidavit in the form and manner prescribed by the commissioner. The
authorizer must file a supplement affidavit by October 1 to be eligible to expand in the next
school year. The supplementary affidavit must document that the school has demonstrated
to the satisfaction of the authorizer the following:

(1) the need for the expansion with supporting long-range enrollment projections;

(2) a longitudinal record of demonstrated student academic performance and growth
on statewide assessments under chapter 120B or on other academic assessments that
measure longitudinal student performance and growth approved by the charter school's
board of directors and agreed upon with the authorizer;

(3) a history of sound school finances and a finance plan to implement the expansion
in a manner to promote the school's financial sustainability; and

(4) board capacity and an administrative and management plan to implement its
expansion.

(k) The commissioner shall have 30 business days to review and comment on the
supplemental affidavit. The commissioner shall notify the authorizer in writing of any
deficiencies in the supplemental affidavit and the authorizer then has 20 business days to
address, to the commissioner's satisfaction, any deficiencies in the supplemental affidavit.
The commissioner must notify the authorizer of final approval or disapproval within 15
business days after receiving the authorizer's response to the deficiencies in the affidavit.
The school may not expand grades or add sites until the commissioner has approved the
supplemental affidavit. The commissioner's approval or disapproval of a supplemental
affidavit is final.

inmate's progress in treatment, the inmate's behavior while incarcerated, psychological
or other diagnostic evaluations of the inmate, the inmate's criminal history, and any
other relevant conduct of the inmate while incarcerated or before incarceration. The
commissioner may not give supervised release to the inmate unless:

treatment with neuroleptic medications and that the person may lack capacity to make
decisions regarding that treatment, the court may appoint a substitute decision-maker

decision-maker consents to treatment with neuroleptic medications and the proposed
patient does not refuse the medication, neuroleptic medication may be administered to

Subd. 14b.

American Indian child welfare projects.

(a) The commissioner of
human services may authorize projects to test tribal delivery of child welfare services to
American Indian children and their parents and custodians living on the reservation.
The commissioner has authority to solicit and determine which tribes may participate
in a project. Grants may be issued to Minnesota Indian tribes to support the projects.
The commissioner may waive existing state rules as needed to accomplish the projects.
Notwithstanding section 626.556, the commissioner may authorize projects to use
alternative methods of investigating and assessing reports of child maltreatment, provided
that the projects comply with the provisions of section 626.556 dealing with the rights
of individuals who are subjects of reports or investigations, including notice and appeal
rights and data practices requirements. The commissioner may seek any federal approvals
necessary to carry out the projects as well as seek and use any funds available to the
commissioner, including use of federal funds, foundation funds, existing grant funds,
and other funds. The commissioner is authorized to advance state funds as necessary to
operate the projects. Federal reimbursement applicable to the projects is appropriated
to the commissioner for the purposes of the projects. The projects must be required to
address responsibility for safety, permanency, and well-being of children.

(b) For the purposes of this section, "American Indian child" means a person under 21
years old and who is a tribal member or eligible for membership in one of the tribes chosen
for a project under this subdivision and who is residing on the reservation of that tribe.

(c) In order to qualify for an American Indian child welfare project, a tribe must:

(1) be one of the existing tribes with reservation land in Minnesota;

(2) have a tribal court with jurisdiction over child custody proceedings;

(3) have a substantial number of children for whom determinations of maltreatment
have occurred;

(4) have capacity to respond to reports of abuse and neglect under section 626.556;

(5) provide a wide range of services to families in need of child welfare services; and

(6) have a tribal-state title IV-E agreement in effect.

(d) Grants awarded under this section may be used for the nonfederal costs of
providing child welfare services to American Indian children on the tribe's reservation,
including costs associated with:

(1) assessment and prevention of child abuse and neglect;

(2) family preservation;

(3) facilitative, supportive, and reunification services;

(4) out-of-home placement for children removed from the home for child protective
purposes; and

(5) other activities and services approved by the commissioner that further the goals
of providing safety, permanency, and well-being of American Indian children.

(e) When a tribe has initiated a project and has been approved by the commissioner
to assume child welfare responsibilities for American Indian children of that tribe under
this section, the affected county social service agency is relieved of responsibility for
responding to reports of abuse and neglect under section 626.556 for those children
during the time within which the tribal project is in effect and funded. The commissioner
shall work with tribes and affected counties to develop procedures for data collection,
evaluation, and clarification of ongoing role and financial responsibilities of the county
and tribe for child welfare services prior to initiation of the project. Children who have not
been identified by the tribe as participating in the project shall remain the responsibility
of the county. Nothing in this section shall alter responsibilities of the county for law
enforcement or court services.

(f) Participating tribes may conduct children's mental health screenings under section
245.4874, subdivision 1, paragraph (a), clause deleted text begin(13)deleted text endnew text begin (12)new text end, for children who are eligible for
the initiative and living on the reservation and who meet one of the following criteria:

(1) the child must be receiving child protective services;

(2) the child must be in foster care; or

(3) the child's parents must have had parental rights suspended or terminated.

Tribes may access reimbursement from available state funds for conducting the screenings.
Nothing in this section shall alter responsibilities of the county for providing services
under section 245.487.

(g) Participating tribes may establish a local child mortality review panel. In
establishing a local child mortality review panel, the tribe agrees to conduct local child
mortality reviews for child deaths or near-fatalities occurring on the reservation under
subdivision 12. Tribes with established child mortality review panels shall have access
to nonpublic data and shall protect nonpublic data under subdivision 12, paragraphs (c)
to (e). The tribe shall provide written notice to the commissioner and affected counties
when a local child mortality review panel has been established and shall provide data upon
request of the commissioner for purposes of sharing nonpublic data with members of the
state child mortality review panel in connection to an individual case.

(h) The commissioner shall collect information on outcomes relating to child safety,
permanency, and well-being of American Indian children who are served in the projects.
Participating tribes must provide information to the state in a format and completeness
deemed acceptable by the state to meet state and federal reporting requirements.

(i) In consultation with the White Earth Band, the commissioner shall develop
and submit to the chairs and ranking minority members of the legislative committees
with jurisdiction over health and human services a plan to transfer legal responsibility
for providing child protective services to White Earth Band member children residing in
Hennepin County to the White Earth Band. The plan shall include a financing proposal,
definitions of key terms, statutory amendments required, and other provisions required to
implement the plan. The commissioner shall submit the plan by January 15, 2012.

Unusual length of stay experience.

(a) The commissioner shall establish
day outlier thresholds for each diagnostic category established under subdivision 2 at two
standard deviations beyond the mean length of stay. Payment for the days beyond the outlier
threshold shall be in addition to the operating and property payment rates per admission
established under subdivisions 2 and 2b. Payment for outliers shall be at 70 percent of
the allowable operating cost, after adjustment by the case mix index, hospital cost index,
relative values and the disproportionate population adjustment. The outlier threshold for
neonatal and burn diagnostic categories shall be established at one standard deviation
beyond the mean length of stay, and payment shall be at 90 percent of allowable operating
cost calculated in the same manner as other outliers. A hospital may choose an alternative
to the 70 percent outlier payment that is at a minimum of 60 percent and a maximum of 80
percent if the commissioner is notified in writing of the request by October 1 of the year
preceding the rate year. The chosen percentage applies to all diagnostic categories except
burns and neonates. The percentage of allowable cost that is unrecognized by the outlier
payment shall be added back to the base year operating payment rate per admission.

occurring after June 30, 1993, the commissioner shall adjust the medical assistance
payment paid to a hospital, excluding regional treatment centers and facilities of the
federal Indian Health Service, with a medical assistance inpatient utilization rate in excess
of the arithmetic mean. The adjustment must be determined as follows:

(1) for a hospital with a medical assistance inpatient utilization rate above the
arithmetic mean for all hospitals excluding regional treatment centers and facilities of the
federal Indian Health Service, the adjustment must be determined by multiplying the total
of the operating and property payment rates by the difference between the hospital's actual
medical assistance inpatient utilization rate and the arithmetic mean for all hospitals
excluding regional treatment centers and facilities of the federal Indian Health Service; and

(2) for a hospital with a medical assistance inpatient utilization rate above one
standard deviation above the mean, the adjustment must be determined by multiplying
the adjustment under clause (1) for that hospital by 1.1.

(iii) a caregiver as defined in section 256J.08, subdivision 11; or

(iv) an appropriate adult relative designated by a county agency.

(2) "Adult supervised supportive living arrangement" means a private family setting
which assumes responsibility for the care and control of the minor parent and minor
child, or other living arrangement, not including a public institution, licensed by the
commissioner of human services which ensures that the minor parent receives adult
supervision and supportive services, such as counseling, guidance, independent living
skills training, or supervision.

(b) A minor parent and the minor child who is in the care of the minor parent must
reside in the household of a parent, legal guardian, other adult relative, or in an adult
supervised supportive living arrangement in order to receive MFIP unless:

(1) the minor parent has no living parent, other adult relative, or legal guardian
whose whereabouts is known;

(2) no living parent, other adult relative, or legal guardian of the minor parent allows
the minor parent to live in the parent's, other adult relative's, or legal guardian's home;

(3) the minor parent lived apart from the minor parent's own parent or legal guardian
for a period of at least one year before either the birth of the minor child or the minor
parent's application for MFIP;

one or more of these exemptions is applicable. If the minor alleges one or more of these
exemptions, then the county must assist the minor in obtaining the necessary verifications
to determine whether or not these exemptions apply.

(d) If the county worker has reason to suspect that the physical or emotional health
or safety of the minor parent or minor child would be jeopardized if they resided with the

make a referral to child protective services to determine if paragraph (b), clause (4),
applies. A new determination by the county worker is not necessary if one has been made
within the last six months, unless there has been a significant change in circumstances
which justifies a new referral and determination.

in a living arrangement that meets the standards of paragraph (a), clause (2).
