of the contamination cleanup grant program. The appropriation does not cancel and is
available until expended. The appropriation shall not be withdrawn from the fund nor the
fund balance reduced until the funds are requested by the commissioner of employment
and economic development. The commissioner shall schedule requests for withdrawals
from the fund to minimize the necessity to impose the fee authorized by subdivision 2.
Unless otherwise provided, the appropriation in this paragraph may be used for:

(1) project costs at a qualifying site if a portion of the cleanup costs are attributable
to petroleum contamination or new and used tar and tar-like substances, including but not
limited to bitumen and asphalt, but excluding bituminous or asphalt pavement, that consist
primarily of hydrocarbons and are found in natural deposits in the earth or are distillates,
fractions, or residues from the processing of petroleum crude or petroleum products as

to suspect the contamination is attributable to petroleum or new and used tar and tar-like
substances, including but not limited to bitumen and asphalt, but excluding bituminous or
asphalt pavement, that consist primarily of hydrocarbons and are found in natural deposits
in the earth or are distillates, fractions, or residues from the processing of petroleum crude

Subd. 1a.

Conveyance to public entities.

(a) Upon written request from a state
agency or a governmental subdivision of the state, a parcel of unsold tax-forfeited land
must be withheld from sale or lease to others for a maximum of six months. The request
must be submitted to the county auditor. Upon receipt, the county auditor must withhold
the parcel from sale or lease to any other party for six months, and must confirm the
starting date of the six-month withholding period to the requesting agency or subdivision.
If the request is from a governmental subdivision of the state, the governmental
subdivision must pay the maintenance costs incurred by the county during the period the
parcel is withheld. The county board may approve a sale or conveyance to the requesting
party during the withholding period. A conveyance of the property to the requesting
party terminates the withholding period.

A governmental subdivision of the state must not make, and a county auditor must
not act upon, a second request to withhold a parcel from sale or lease within 18 months
of a previous request for that parcel. A county may reject a request made under this
paragraph if the request is made more than 30 days after the county has given notice to the
requesting state agency or governmental subdivision of the state that the county intends to
sell or otherwise dispose of the property.

(b) Nonconservation tax-forfeited lands may be sold by the county board, for
their market value as determined by the county board, to an organized or incorporated
governmental subdivision of the state for any public purpose for which the subdivision is
authorized to acquire property. When the term "market value" is used in this section, it
means an estimate of the full and actual market value of the parcel as determined by the
county board, but in making this determination, the board and the persons employed by or
under contract with the board in order to perform, conduct, or assist in the determination,
are exempt from the licensure requirements of chapter 82B.

(c) Nonconservation tax-forfeited lands may be released from the trust in favor of
the taxing districts on application to the county board by a state agency for an authorized
use at not less than their market value as determined by the county board.

(d) Nonconservation tax-forfeited lands may be sold by the county board to an
organized or incorporated governmental subdivision of the state or state agency for less
than their market value if:

(1) the county board determines that a sale at a reduced price is in the public interest
because a reduced price is necessary to provide an incentive to correct the blighted
conditions that make the lands undesirable in the open market, or the reduced price will
lead to the development of affordable housing; and

(2) the governmental subdivision or state agency has documented its specific plans
for correcting the blighted conditions or developing affordable housing, and the specific
law or laws that empower it to acquire real property in furtherance of the plans.

If the sale under this paragraph is to a governmental subdivision of the state, the
commissioner of revenue must convey the property on behalf of the state by quit claim
deed. If the sale under this paragraph is to a state agency, the commissioner must issue a
conveyance document that releases the property from the trust in favor of the taxing
districts.

(e) Nonconservation tax-forfeited land held in trust in favor of the taxing districts
may be conveyed by the commissioner of revenue in the name of the state to a
governmental subdivision for an authorized public use, if an application is submitted to the
commissioner which includes a statement of facts as to the use to be made of the tract and
the favorable recommendation of the county board. For the purposes of this paragraph,
"authorized public use" means a use that allows an indefinite segment of the public to
physically use and enjoy the property in numbers appropriate to its size and use, or is for a
public service facility. Authorized public uses as defined in this paragraph are limited to:

Sec. 81.

Minnesota Statutes 2012, section 282.01, subdivision 1d, is amended to read:


Subd. 1d.

Reverter for failure to use; conveyance to state.

(a) After three years
from the date of any conveyance of tax-forfeited land to a governmental subdivision for
an authorized public use as provided in this section, regardless of when the deed for the
authorized public use was executed, if the governmental subdivision has failed to put the
land to that use, or abandons that use, the governing body of the subdivision must: (1)
with the approval of the county board, purchase the property for an authorized public
purpose at the present market value as determined by the county board, or (2) authorize
the proper officers to convey the land, or the part of the land not required for an authorized
public use, to the state of Minnesota in trust for the taxing districts. If the governing body
purchases the property under clause (1), the commissioner of revenue shall, upon proper
application submitted by the county auditor, convey the property on behalf of the state by
quit claim deed to the subdivision free of a use restriction and the possibility of reversion
or defeasement. If the governing body decides to reconvey the property to the state under
this clause, the officers shall execute a deed of conveyance immediately. The conveyance
is subject to the approval of the commissioner and its form must be approved by the
attorney general. For 15 years from the date of the conveyance, there is no failure to put
the land to the authorized public use and no abandonment of that use if a formal plan of
the governmental subdivision, including, but not limited to, a comprehensive plan or land
use plan, shows an intended future use of the land for the authorized public use.

(b) Property held by a governmental subdivision of the state under a conditional use
deed executed under this section by the commissioner of revenue on or after January 1,
2007, may be acquired by that governmental subdivision after 15 years from the date
of the conveyance if the commissioner determines upon written application from the
subdivision that the subdivision has in fact put the property to the authorized public use for
which it was conveyed, and the subdivision has made a finding that it has no current plans
to change the use of the lands. Prior to conveying the property, the commissioner shall
inquire whether the county board where the land is located objects to a conveyance of the
property to the subdivision without conditions and without further act by or obligation of
the subdivision. If the county does not object within 60 days, and the commissioner makes
a favorable determination, the commissioner shall issue a quit claim deed on behalf of
the state unconditionally conveying the property to the governmental subdivision. For
purposes of this paragraph, demonstration of an intended future use for the authorized
public use in a formal plan of the governmental subdivision does not constitute use for
that authorized public use.

(c) Property held by a governmental subdivision of the state under a conditional use
deed executed under this section by the commissioner of revenue before January 1, 2007,
is released from the use restriction and possibility of reversion on January 1, 2022, if the
county board records a resolution describing the land and citing this paragraph. The
county board may authorize the county treasurer to deduct the amount of the recording
fees from future settlements of property taxes to the subdivision.

(d) new text beginExcept for tax-forfeited land conveyed to establish a school forest under section
89.41,
new text end property conveyed under a conditional use deed executed under this section by
the commissioner of revenue, regardless of when the deed for the authorized public use
was executed, is released from the use restriction and reverter, and any use restriction or
reverter for which no declaration of reversion has been recorded with the county recorder
or registrar of titles, as appropriate, is nullified on the later of: (1) January 1, 2015; (2) 30
years from the date the deed was acknowledged; or (3) final resolution of an appeal to
district court under subdivision 1e, if a lis pendens related to the appeal is recorded in the
office of the county recorder or registrar of titles, as appropriate, prior to January 1, 2015.

new text begin (e) Notwithstanding paragraphs (a) to (d), tax-forfeited land conveyed to establish a
school forest under section 89.41 is subject to a perpetual conditional use deed and reverter.
The property reverts to the state in trust for the taxing districts by operation of law if the
commissioner of natural resources determines and reports to the commissioner of revenue
under section 89.41, subdivision 3, that the governmental subdivision has failed to use the
land for school forest purposes for three consecutive years. The commissioner of revenue
shall record a declaration of reversion for land that has reverted under this paragraph.

new text end

new text begin (c) Another bidder or the county auditor may request that the number of employees a
bidder has pursuant to paragraph (a), clause (3), be confirmed if there is evidence that the
bidder may be ineligible due to exceeding the employee threshold. The county auditor
shall request information from the commissioners of labor and industry and employment
and economic development including the premiums paid by the bidder in question for
workers' compensation insurance coverage for all employees of the bidder. The county
auditor shall review the information submitted by the commissioners of labor and industry
and employment and economic development and make a determination based on that
information as to whether the bidder is eligible. A bidder is considered eligible and may
participate in intermediate auctions until determined ineligible under this paragraph.

required to allow an average owner of installed solar photovoltaic modules a reasonable
return on their investment. In setting the incentive amount the commissioner shall consider:
new text end

new text begin (1) an estimate of the installed cost per kilowatt-direct current, based on the cost data
supplied by the manufacturer in the application submitted under section 216C.413, and an
estimate of the average installation cost based on a representative sample of Minnesota
solar photovoltaic installed projects;
new text end

new text begin (2) the average insolation rate in Minnesota;
new text end

new text begin (3) an estimate of the decline in the generation efficiency of the solar photovoltaic
modules over time;
new text end

new text begin (4) the rate paid by utilities to owners of solar photovoltaic modules under section
216B.164 or other law;
new text end

new text begin (5) applicable federal tax incentives for installing solar photovoltaic modules; and
new text end

new text begin (6) the estimated levelized cost per kilowatt-hour generated.
new text end

new text begin (b) The commissioner shall annually, for incentive applications received in a year,
revise each incentive amount based on the factors in paragraph (a), clauses (1) to (6),
general market conditions, and the availability of other incentives. In no case shall the
"Made in Minnesota" incentive amount result in the "Made in Minnesota" incentives paid
exceeding 40 percent, net of average applicable taxes on the ten-year incentive payments,
of the average historic installation cost per kilowatt. The commissioner may exceed the 40
percent cap if the commissioner determines it is necessary to fully expend funds available
for incentive payments in a particular year.
