  8.53  and make recommendations regarding the 
  8.54  following drug offender sentencing 
  8.55  issues: 
  8.56  (1) the evolution of Minnesota's drug 
  8.57  sentencing laws, the annual proportion 
  8.58  and number of prisoners incarcerated 
  8.59  for drug crimes in Minnesota state 
  8.60  prisons, the annual cost of 
  8.61  incarcerating drug offenders in 
  8.62  Minnesota state prisons, the 
  9.1   effectiveness of drug courts, and 
  9.2   current programs that employ 
  9.3   alternatives to incarceration for drug 
  9.4   offenders in Minnesota state prisons; 
  9.5   (2) the average and the range of 
  9.6   criminal history scores for each level 
  9.7   of drug offender currently incarcerated 
  9.8   in Minnesota state prisons; 
  9.9   (3) the proportionality of Minnesota's 
  9.10  drug sentencing provisions when 
  9.11  compared to sentencing provisions for 
  9.12  other crimes in Minnesota; 
  9.13  (4) the proportionality of Minnesota's 
  9.14  drug sentencing provisions when 
  9.15  compared to other states' drug 
  9.16  sentencing provisions; 
  9.17  (5) the type and quantity of Minnesota 
  9.18  correctional resources that are 
  9.19  dedicated to all drug offenders; 
  9.20  (6) the projected annual cost to the 
  9.21  department of corrections of 
  9.22  incarcerating all drug offenders in 
  9.23  state prisons over the next ten years; 
  9.24  (7) the cost savings to the department 
  9.25  of corrections by not incarcerating 
  9.26  nonviolent drug offenders and sending 
  9.27  them to noncustodial drug treatment 
  9.28  instead providing that the length of 
  9.29  their sentence is not reduced; and 
  9.30  (8) the recidivism rate for drug 
  9.31  offenders, in Minnesota and other 
  9.32  states, who are sent to noncustodial 
  9.33  drug treatment rather than 
  9.34  incarceration. 
  9.35  The sentencing guidelines commission 
  9.36  must present the report and 
  9.37  recommendations to the chairs and 
  9.38  ranking minority members of the house

 15.1   natural person to pay a fixed and certain amount of money, which 
 15.2   equals or exceeds $25 and which is due and payable to a claimant 
 15.3   agency.  The term includes criminal fines imposed under section 
 15.4   609.10 or 609.125 and restitution.  The term also includes the 
 15.5   co-payment for the appointment of a district public defender 
 15.6   imposed under section 611.17, paragraph (c).  A debt may arise 
 15.7   under a contractual or statutory obligation, a court order, or 
 15.8   other legal obligation, but need not have been reduced to 
 15.9   judgment.  
 15.10     A debt includes any legal obligation of a current recipient 
 15.11  of assistance which is based on overpayment of an assistance 
 15.12  grant where that payment is based on a client waiver or an 
 15.13  administrative or judicial finding of an intentional program 
 15.14  violation; or where the debt is owed to a program wherein the 
 15.15  debtor is not a client at the time notification is provided to 
 15.16  initiate recovery under this chapter and the debtor is not a 
 15.17  current recipient of food stamps, transitional child care, or 
 15.18  transitional medical assistance. 
 15.19     A debt does not include any legal obligation to pay a 
 15.20  claimant agency for medical care, including hospitalization if 
 15.21  the income of the debtor at the time when the medical care was 
 15.22  rendered does not exceed the following amount: 
 15.23     (1) for an unmarried debtor, an income of $8,800 or less; 
 15.24     (2) for a debtor with one dependent, an income of $11,270 
 15.25  or less;

 15.35  for inflation for debts incurred in calendar years 2001 and 
 15.36  thereafter.  The dollar amount of each income level that applied 
 16.1   to debts incurred in the prior year shall be increased in the 
 16.2   same manner as provided in section 1(f) of the Internal Revenue 
 16.3   Code of 1986, as amended through December 31, 2000, except that 
 16.4   for the purposes of this subdivision the percentage increase 
 16.5   shall be determined from the year starting September 1, 1999, 
 16.6   and ending August 31, 2000, as the base year for adjusting for 
 16.7   inflation for debts incurred after December 31, 2000. 
 16.8      Debt also includes an agreement to pay a MinnesotaCare 
 16.9   premium, regardless of the dollar amount of the premium 
 16.10  authorized under section 256L.15, subdivision 1a.

 16.16     A person financially unable to obtain counsel who desires 
 16.17  to pursue the remedy provided in section 590.01 may apply for 
 16.18  representation by the state public defender.  The state public 
 16.19  defender shall represent such person under the applicable 
 16.20  provisions of sections 611.14 to 611.27, if the person has not 
 16.21  already had a direct appeal of the conviction.  If, however, the 
 16.22  person pled guilty and received a presumptive sentence or a 
 16.23  downward departure in sentence, and the state public defender 
 16.24  reviewed the person's case and determined that there was no 
 16.25  basis for an appeal of the conviction or of the sentence, then 
 16.26  the state public defender may decline to represent the person in 
 16.27  a postconviction remedy case.  The state public defender may 
 16.28  represent, without charge, all other persons pursuing a

 16.30  unable to obtain counsel.

 17.5   gross misdemeanor, or a person convicted of a felony or gross 
 17.6   misdemeanor, who is pursuing a postconviction proceeding and who 
 17.7   has not already had a direct appeal of the conviction, but if 
 17.8   the person pled guilty and received a presumptive sentence or a 
 17.9   downward departure in sentence, and the state public defender 
 17.10  reviewed the person's case and determined that there was no 
 17.11  basis for an appeal of the conviction or of the sentence, then 
 17.12  the state public defender may decline to represent the person in 
 17.13  a postconviction remedy case; 
 17.14     (3) a person who is entitled to be represented by counsel 
 17.15  under section 609.14, subdivision 2; or 
 17.16     (4) a minor ten years of age or older who is entitled to be 
 17.17  represented by counsel under section 260B.163, subdivision 4, or 
 17.18  260C.163, subdivision 3. 
 17.19     [EFFECTIVE DATE.] This section is effective July 1, 2003. 
 17.20     Sec. 4.  Minnesota Statutes 2002, section 611.17, is 
 17.21  amended to read: 
 17.22     611.17 [FINANCIAL INQUIRY; STATEMENTS; CO-PAYMENT.] 
 17.23     Subdivision 1.  [STANDARDS FOR DISTRICT PUBLIC DEFENSE 
 17.24  ELIGIBILITY.] (a) Each judicial district must screen 
 17.25  requests under paragraph (b) for representation by the district 
 17.26  public defender.  A defendant is financially unable to obtain 
 17.27  counsel if: 
 17.28     (1) the defendant, or any dependent of the defendant who 
 17.29  resides in the same household as the defendant, receives 
 17.30  means-tested governmental benefits; or 
 17.31     (2) the defendant, through any combination of liquid assets 
 17.32  and current income, would be unable to pay the reasonable costs 
 17.33  charged by private counsel in that judicial district for a 
 17.34  defense of the same matter. 
 17.35     (b) Upon a request for the appointment of counsel, the 
 17.36  court shall make appropriate inquiry into the financial 
 18.1   circumstances of the applicant, who shall submit a financial 
 18.2   statement under oath or affirmation setting forth the 
 18.3   applicant's assets and liabilities, including the value of any 
 18.4   real property owned by the applicant, whether homestead or 
 18.5   otherwise, less the amount of any encumbrances on the real 
 18.6   property, the source or sources of income, and any other 
 18.7   information required by the court.  The applicant shall be under 
 18.8   a continuing duty while represented by a public defender to 
 18.9   disclose any changes in the applicant's financial circumstances 
 18.10  that might be relevant to the applicant's eligibility for a 
 18.11  public defender.  The state public defender shall furnish 
 18.12  appropriate forms for the financial statements.  The forms must 
 18.13  contain conspicuous notice of the applicant's continuing duty to 
 18.14  disclose to the court changes in the applicant's financial 
 18.15  circumstances.  The forms must also contain conspicuous notice 
 18.16  of the applicant's obligation to make a co-payment for the 
 18.17  services of the district public defender, as specified under 
 18.18  paragraph (c).  The information contained in the statement shall 
 18.19  be confidential and for the exclusive use of the court and the 
 18.20  public defender appointed by the court to represent the 
 18.21  applicant except for any prosecution under section 609.48.  A 
 18.22  refusal to execute the financial statement or produce financial 
 18.23  records constitutes a waiver of the right to the appointment of 
 18.24  a public defender.  The court shall not appoint a district 
 18.25  public defender to a defendant who is financially able to retain 
 18.26  private counsel but refuses to do so. 
 18.27     An inquiry to determine financial eligibility of a 
 18.28  defendant for the appointment of the district public defender 
 18.29  shall be made whenever possible prior to the court appearance 
 18.30  and by such persons as the court may direct.  This inquiry may 
 18.31  be combined with the pre-release investigation provided for in 
 18.32  Minnesota Rule of Criminal Procedure 6.02, subdivision 3.  In no 
 18.33  case shall the district public defender be required to perform 
 18.34  this inquiry or investigate the defendant's assets or 
 18.35  eligibility.  The court has the sole duty to conduct a financial 
 18.36  inquiry.  The inquiry must include the following: 
 19.1      (1) the liquidity of real estate assets, including the 
 19.2   defendant's homestead; 
 19.3      (2) any assets that can be readily converted to cash or 
 19.4   used to secure a debt; 
 19.5      (3) the determination of whether the transfer of an asset 
 19.6   is voidable as a fraudulent conveyance; and 
 19.7      (4) the value of all property transfers occurring on or 
 19.8   after the date of the alleged offense.  The burden is on the 
 19.9   accused to show that he or she is financially unable to afford 
 19.10  counsel.  Defendants who fail to provide information necessary 
 19.11  to determine eligibility shall be deemed ineligible.  The court 
 19.12  must not appoint the district public defender as advisory 
 19.13  counsel. 
 19.14     (c) Upon disposition of the case appointment of the public 
 19.15  defender, an individual who has received receives public 
 19.16  defender services shall be obligated to pay to the court a $28 
 19.17  co-payment for representation provided by a public defender, 
 19.18  unless the co-payment is, or has been, waived by the court.  The 
 19.19  co-payment shall be according to the following schedule: 
 19.20     (1) if the person was charged with a felony, $200; 
 19.21     (2) if the person was charged with a gross misdemeanor, 
 19.22  $100; or 
 19.23     (3) if the person was charged with a misdemeanor, $50. 
 19.24     If the person is a child and was appointed counsel under 
 19.25  the provisions of section 260B.163, subdivision 4, the parents 
 19.26  of the child shall pay to the court a co-payment of $100.  If 
 19.27  the person is a parent of a child and the parent was appointed 
 19.28  counsel under the provisions of section 260C.163, subdivision 3, 
 19.29  the parent shall pay to the court a co-payment of $200. 
 19.30     The co-payment shall be deposited in the state general 
 19.31  fund.  If a term of probation is imposed as a part of an 
 19.32  offender's sentence, the co-payment required by this section 
 19.33  must not be made a condition of probation.  The co-payment 
 19.34  required by this section is a civil obligation and must not be 
 19.35  made a condition of a criminal sentence.  Collection of the 
 19.36  co-payment may be made through the provisions of chapter 270A, 
 20.1   the Revenue Recapture Act. 
 20.2      (d) All public defender co-pay revenue collected under 
 20.3   paragraph (c) and revenues less statutory fees collected under 
 20.4   chapter 270A shall be deposited in the public defender co-pay 
 20.5   account in the special revenue fund. 
 20.6      The first $2,740,000 deposited in the public defender 
 20.7   co-pay account must be transferred to the general fund.  This is 
 20.8   not an annual transfer.  Receipts in excess of the first 
 20.9   $2,740,000 are appropriated to the board of public defense for 
 20.10  public defender services.

 20.13     Sec. 5.  Minnesota Statutes 2002, section 611.18, is 
 20.14  amended to read:

 20.16     If it appears to a court that a person requesting the 
 20.17  appointment of counsel satisfies the requirements of this 
 20.18  chapter, the court shall order the appropriate public defender 
 20.19  to represent the person at all further stages of the proceeding 
 20.20  through appeal, if any.  For a person appealing from a 
 20.21  conviction, or a person pursuing a postconviction proceeding and 
 20.22  who has not already had a direct appeal of the 
 20.23  conviction, according to the standards of sections 611.14 and 
 20.24  611.25, subdivision 1, paragraph (a), clause (2), the state 
 20.25  public defender shall be appointed.  For a person covered by 
 20.26  section 611.14, clause (1), a district public defender shall be 
 20.27  appointed to represent that person.  If (a) conflicting 
 20.28  interests exist, (b) the district public defender for any other 
 20.29  reason is unable to act, or (c) the interests of justice 
 20.30  require, the state public defender may be ordered to represent a 
 20.31  person.  When the state public defender is directed by a court 
 20.32  to represent a defendant or other person, the state public 
 20.33  defender may assign the representation to any district public 
 20.34  defender.  If at any stage of the proceedings, including an 
 20.35  appeal, the court finds that the defendant is financially unable 
 20.36  to pay counsel whom the defendant had retained, the court may 
 21.1   appoint the appropriate public defender to represent the 
 21.2   defendant, as provided in this section.  Prior to any court 
 21.3   appearance, a public defender may represent a person accused of 
 21.4   violating the law, who appears to be financially unable to 
 21.5   obtain counsel, and shall continue to represent the person 
 21.6   unless it is subsequently determined that the person is 
 21.7   financially able to obtain counsel.  The representation may be 
 21.8   made available at the discretion of the public defender, upon 
 21.9   the request of the person or someone on the person's behalf.  
 21.10  Any law enforcement officer may notify the public defender of 
 21.11  the arrest of any such person.

 21.23  departure in sentence, and the state public defender reviewed 
 21.24  the person's case and determined that there was no basis for an

 21.27  postconviction remedy case; and

 40.15  subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
 40.16     Subdivision 1.  [GENERAL REQUIREMENTS; PERMIT; 
 40.17  INVESTIGATION; FEE.] (a) Sections 624.20 to 624.25 do not 
 40.18  prohibit the supervised display of fireworks by a statutory or 
 40.19  home rule charter city, fair association, amusement park, or 
 40.20  other organization, except that: 
 40.21     (1) a fireworks display may be conducted only when 
 40.22  supervised by an operator certified by the state fire marshal; 
 40.23  and 
 40.24     (2) a fireworks display must either be given by a 
 40.25  municipality or fair association within its own limits, or by 
 40.26  any other organization, whether public or private, only after a 
 40.27  permit for the display has first been secured.  
 40.28     (b) An application for a permit for an outdoor fireworks 
 40.29  display must be made in writing to the municipal clerk at least 
 40.30  15 days in advance of the date of the display and must list the 
 40.31  name of an operator who is certified by the state fire marshal 
 40.32  and will supervise the display.  The application must be 
 40.33  promptly referred to the chief of the fire department, who shall 
 40.34  make an investigation to determine whether the operator of the 
 40.35  display is competent and is certified by the state fire marshal, 
 40.36  and whether the display is of such a character and is to be so 
 41.1   located, discharged, or fired that it will not be hazardous to 
 41.2   property or endanger any person.  The fire chief shall report 
 41.3   the results of this investigation to the clerk.  If the fire 
 41.4   chief reports that the operator is certified, that in the 
 41.5   chief's opinion the operator is competent, and that the 
 41.6   fireworks display as planned will conform to the safety 
 41.7   guidelines of the state fire marshal provided for in 
 41.8   paragraph (e) (f), the clerk shall issue a permit for the 
 41.9   display when the applicant pays a permit fee.  
 41.10     (c) When the supervised outdoor fireworks display for which 
 41.11  a permit is sought is to be held outside the limits of an 
 41.12  incorporated municipality, the application must be made to the 
 41.13  county auditor, and the auditor shall perform duties imposed by 
 41.14  sections 624.20 to 624.25 upon the clerk of the municipality.  
 41.15  When an application is made to the auditor, the county sheriff 
 41.16  shall perform the duties imposed on the fire chief of the 
 41.17  municipality by sections 624.20 to 624.25.  
 41.18     (d) An application for an indoor fireworks display permit 
 41.19  must be made in writing to the state fire marshal by the 
 41.20  operator of the facility in which the display is to occur at 
 41.21  least 15 days in advance of the date of any performance, show, 
 41.22  or event which will include the discharge of fireworks inside a 
 41.23  building or structure.  The application must list the name of an 
 41.24  operator who is certified by the state fire marshal and will 
 41.25  supervise the display.  The state fire marshal shall make an 
 41.26  investigation to determine whether the operator of the display 
 41.27  is competent and is properly certified and whether the display 
 41.28  is of such a character and is to be so located, discharged, or 
 41.29  fired that it will not be hazardous to property or endanger any 
 41.30  person.  If the state fire marshal determines that the operator 
 41.31  is certified and competent, that the indoor fireworks display as 
 41.32  planned will conform to the safety guidelines provided for in 
 41.33  paragraph (f), and that adequate notice will be given to inform 
 41.34  patrons of the indoor fireworks display, the state fire marshal 
 41.35  shall issue a permit for the display when the applicant pays an 
 41.36  indoor fireworks fee of $150 and reimburses the fire marshal for 
 42.1   costs of inspection.  Receipts from the indoor fireworks fee and 
 42.2   inspection reimbursements must be deposited in the general fund 
 42.3   as a nondedicated receipt.  The state fire marshal may issue a 
 42.4   single permit for multiple indoor fireworks displays when all of 
 42.5   the displays are to take place at the same venue as part of a 
 42.6   series of performances by the same performer or group of 
 42.7   performers.  A copy of the application must be promptly conveyed 
 42.8   to the chief of the local fire department, who shall make 
 42.9   appropriate preparations to ensure public safety in the vicinity 
 42.10  of the display.  The operator of a facility where an indoor 
 42.11  fireworks display occurs must provide notice in a prominent 
 42.12  place as approved by the state fire marshal to inform patrons 
 42.13  attending a performance when indoor fireworks will be part of 
 42.14  that performance.  The state fire marshal may grant a local fire 
 42.15  chief the authority to issue permits for indoor fireworks 
 42.16  displays.  Before issuing a permit, a local fire chief must make 
 42.17  the determinations required in this paragraph.  
 42.18     (e) After a permit has been granted under either paragraph 
 42.19  (b) or (d), sales, possession, use and distribution of fireworks 
 42.20  for a display are lawful for that purpose only.  A permit is not 
 42.21  transferable.  
 42.22     (e) (f) The state fire marshal shall adopt and disseminate 
 42.23  to political subdivisions rules establishing guidelines on 
 42.24  fireworks display safety that are consistent with sections 
 42.25  624.20 to 624.25 and the most recent editions of the Minnesota 
 42.26  Uniform Fire Code and the National Fire Protection Association 
 42.27  Standards, to insure that fireworks displays are given safely.  
 42.28  In the guidelines, the state fire marshal shall allow political 
 42.29  subdivisions to exempt the use of relatively safe fireworks for 
 42.30  theatrical special effects, ceremonial occasions, and other 
 42.31  limited purposes, as determined by the state fire marshal.

 55.35  them.  
 55.36     (b) For purposes of this subdivision, subdivision 6, and

 56.2   is not limited to incarceration in a local jail or workhouse, 
 56.3   home detention, electronic monitoring, intensive probation,

 56.13     Sec. 6.  [SANCTIONS CONFERENCE PROCEDURES.] 
 56.14     The chief executive officer of a local corrections agency, 
 56.15  with approval of the district court, shall develop procedures 
 56.16  for the sanctions conference identified in Minnesota Statutes, 
 56.17  sections 244.196 to 244.199, and develop a sanctions conference 
 56.18  form that includes notice to the offender: 
 56.19     (1) of the specific court-ordered condition of release that 
 56.20  the offender has allegedly violated, the probation officer's 
 56.21  authority to ask the court to revoke the offender's probation 
 56.22  for the technical violation, and the offender's right to elect 
 56.23  to participate in a sanctions conference to address the 
 56.24  technical violation in lieu of the probation officer asking the 
 56.25  court to revoke the offender's probation; 
 56.26     (2) that participation in the sanctions conference is in 
 56.27  lieu of a court hearing under Minnesota Statutes, section 
 56.28  609.14, and that, if the offender elects to participate in the 
 56.29  sanctions conference, the offender must admit, or agree not to 
 56.30  contest, the alleged technical violation and must waive the 
 56.31  right to contest the violation at a judicial hearing, present 
 56.32  evidence, call witnesses, cross-examine the state's witnesses, 
 56.33  and be represented by counsel; 
 56.34     (3) that, if the offender chooses, the offender has a right 
 56.35  to a hearing before the court under Minnesota Statutes, section 
 56.36  609.14, for a determination of whether the offender committed 
 57.1   the alleged violation, including the right to be present at the 
 57.2   hearing, to cross-examine witnesses, to have witnesses 
 57.3   subpoenaed for the offender, to have an attorney present or to 
 57.4   have an attorney appointed if the offender cannot afford one, 
 57.5   and to require the state to prove the allegations against the 
 57.6   offender; 
 57.7      (4) that if, after a hearing, the court finds the 
 57.8   violations have been proven, the court may continue the 
 57.9   sentence, subject to the same, modified, or additional 
 57.10  conditions, or order a sanction that may include incarceration, 
 57.11  additional fines, revocation of the stay of sentence, imposition 
 57.12  of sentence, or other sanctions; 
 57.13     (5) that the decision to participate in the sanctions 
 57.14  conference will not result in the probation officer recommending 
 57.15  revocation of the offender's stay of sentence, unless the 
 57.16  offender fails to successfully complete the probation violation 
 57.17  sanction; 
 57.18     (6) that various types of probation violation sanctions may 
 57.19  be imposed and that the probation violation sanctions imposed on 
 57.20  the offender will depend on the nature of the technical 
 57.21  violation, the offender's criminal history, and the offender's 
 57.22  level of supervision; 
 57.23     (7) that the probation violation sanctions supplement any 
 57.24  existing conditions of release; and 
 57.25     (8) that participation in the sanctions conference requires 
 57.26  completion of all probation violation sanctions imposed by the 
 57.27  probation agency, and that failure to successfully complete the 
 57.28  imposed probation violation sanctions could result in additional 
 57.29  sanctions or the commencement of revocation proceedings under 
 57.30  Minnesota Statutes, section 609.14.

 59.12     (2) has committed a delinquent act that would be a petty 
 59.13  misdemeanor or misdemeanor if committed by an adult, 
 59.14  the officer may issue a notice to the child to appear in 
 59.15  juvenile court in the county in which the child is found or in

 59.35  minor or incompetent, or that the parent or guardian is 
 59.36  indifferent or hostile to the minor's interests, and in every

 71.11  The petition shall be accompanied by an affidavit made under 
 71.12  oath stating the specific facts and circumstances from which 
 71.13  relief is sought.  The court shall provide simplified forms and 
 71.14  clerical assistance to help with the writing and filing of a

 71.35     (1) the petitioner files an affidavit with the court 
 71.36  stating that an attempt at personal service made by a sheriff 
 72.1   was unsuccessful because the respondent is avoiding service by 
 72.2   concealment or otherwise; and 
 72.3      (2) a copy of the petition and order for hearing and any 
 72.4   temporary restraining order has been mailed to the respondent at

 72.15  made within 45 days of the filing or receipt of the petition.

 72.21  issue a temporary restraining order ordering the respondent to 
 72.22  cease or avoid the harassment of another person or to have no 
 72.23  contact with that person if the petitioner files a petition in 
 72.24  compliance with subdivision 3 and if the court finds reasonable 
 72.25  grounds to believe that the respondent has engaged in 
 72.26  harassment.  When a petition alleges harassment as defined by 
 72.27  subdivision 1, paragraph (a), clause (1), the petition must 
 72.28  further allege an immediate and present danger of harassment 
 72.29  before the court may issue a temporary restraining order under 
 72.30  this section.  
 72.31     (b) Notice need not be given to the respondent before the 
 72.32  court issues a temporary restraining order under this 
 72.33  subdivision.  A copy of the restraining order must be served on 
 72.34  the respondent along with the order for hearing and petition, as 
 72.35  provided in subdivision 3.  If the respondent is a juvenile, 
 72.36  whenever possible, a copy of the restraining order, along with 
 73.1   notice of the pendency of the case and the time and place of the 
 73.2   hearing, shall also be served by mail at the last known address 
 73.3   upon any parent or guardian of the juvenile respondent who is 
 73.4   not the petitioner.  A temporary restraining order may be 
 73.5   entered only against the respondent named in the petition.  
 73.6      (c) The temporary restraining order is in effect until a 
 73.7   hearing is held on the issuance of a restraining order under 
 73.8   subdivision 5.  The court shall hold the hearing on the issuance 
 73.9   of a restraining order within 14 days after the temporary

 81.20  that the court had initially ordered to be executed.  
 81.21     (c) When the court stays a segment of incarceration that it 
 81.22  has previously ordered to be executed, that portion of the 
 81.23  sentence must be added to the total number of days the defendant 
 81.24  is subject to serving in custody if the person subsequently 
 81.25  violates any of the conditions of that stay of execution.

 81.27  regular meetings focusing on sobriety and includes, but is not 
 81.28  limited to, Alcoholics Anonymous.

 92.9      Sec. 20.  [CLARIFYING LEGISLATIVE INTENT.] 
 92.10     During the year 2000 recodification of Minnesota's impaired 
 92.11  driving statutes, now codified in Minnesota Statutes 2002, 
 92.12  chapter 169A, it was the intention of the legislature to 
 92.13  continue the policy of accountability for previous convictions 
 92.14  of impaired driving-related offenses and previous impaired 
 92.15  driving-related driver's license actions.  Specifically, it was 
 92.16  the intention of the legislature to count as aggravating factors 
 92.17  all qualified prior impaired driving incidents occurring within 
 92.18  the past ten years of an incident for purposes of any criminal 
 92.19  or civil sanctions under Minnesota Statutes 2002, chapter 169A, 
 92.20  whether a prior incident occurred before, during, or after 1998 
 92.21  or 1996.  The references to "Minnesota Statutes 1998" and 
 92.22  "Minnesota Statutes 1996" in Minnesota Statutes 2002, section
