 11.21  appropriated to the commissioner of

 11.24  programs.  The commissioners of human 
 11.25  services and finance shall report to 
 11.26  the legislative advisory committee on 
 11.27  the additional federal Medicaid 
 11.28  matching funds that will be available 
 11.29  to the state. 
 11.30  (b) Contingent upon Because of the 
 11.31  availability of these funds, the

 11.33  effective and necessary funds are 
 11.34  appropriated for those purposes: 
 11.35  (1) medical assistance and 
 11.36  MinnesotaCare eligibility and local 
 11.37  financial participation changes 
 11.38  provided for in this act may be 
 11.39  implemented prior to September 2, 2003,

 11.44  2003;

 12.11  June 30, 2007. 
 12.12  [RECEIPTS FOR SYSTEMS PROJECTS.] 
 12.13  Appropriations and federal receipts for 
 12.14  information system projects for MAXIS, 
 12.15  PRISM, MMIS, and SSIS must be deposited 
 12.16  in the state system account authorized 
 12.17  in Minnesota Statutes, section 
 12.18  256.014.  Money appropriated for 
 12.19  computer projects approved by the 
 12.20  Minnesota office of technology, funded 
 12.21  by the legislature, and approved by the 
 12.22  commissioner of finance may be 
 12.23  transferred from one project to another 
 12.24  and from development to operations as 
 12.25  the commissioner of human services 
 12.26  considers necessary.  Any unexpended 
 12.27  balance in the appropriation for these 
 12.28  projects does not cancel but is 
 12.29  available for ongoing development and 
 12.30  operations. 
 12.31  [GIFTS.] Notwithstanding Minnesota 
 12.32  Statutes, chapter 7, the commissioner 
 12.33  may accept on behalf of the state 
 12.34  additional funding from sources other 
 12.35  than state funds for the purpose of 
 12.36  financing the cost of assistance 
 12.37  program grants or nongrant 
 12.38  administration.  All additional funding 
 12.39  is appropriated to the commissioner for 
 12.40  use as designated by the grantor of 
 12.41  funding. 
 12.42  [SYSTEMS CONTINUITY.] In the event of 
 12.43  disruption of technical systems or 
 12.44  computer operations, the commissioner 
 12.45  may use available grant appropriations 
 12.46  to ensure continuity of payments for 
 12.47  maintaining the health, safety, and 
 12.48  well-being of clients served by 
 12.49  programs administered by the department 
 12.50  of human services.  Grant funds must be 
 12.51  used in a manner consistent with the 
 12.52  original intent of the appropriation. 
 12.53  [NONFEDERAL SHARE TRANSFERS.] The 
 12.54  nonfederal share of activities for 
 12.55  which federal administrative 
 12.56  reimbursement is appropriated to the 
 12.57  commissioner may be transferred to the 
 12.58  special revenue fund. 
 12.59  [TANF FUNDS APPROPRIATED TO OTHER 
 12.60  ENTITIES.] Any expenditures from the 
 12.61  TANF block grant shall be expended in 
 12.62  accordance with the requirements and 
 12.63  limitations of part A of title IV of 
 13.1   the Social Security Act, as amended, 
 13.2   and any other applicable federal 
 13.3   requirement or limitation.  Prior to 
 13.4   any expenditure of these funds, the 
 13.5   commissioner shall assure that funds 
 13.6   are expended in compliance with the 
 13.7   requirements and limitations of federal 
 13.8   law and that any reporting requirements 
 13.9   of federal law are met.  It shall be 
 13.10  the responsibility of any entity to 
 13.11  which these funds are appropriated to 
 13.12  implement a memorandum of understanding 
 13.13  with the commissioner that provides the 
 13.14  necessary assurance of compliance prior 
 13.15  to any expenditure of funds.  The 
 13.16  commissioner shall receipt TANF funds 
 13.17  appropriated to other state agencies 
 13.18  and coordinate all related interagency 
 13.19  accounting transactions necessary to 
 13.20  implement these appropriations.  
 13.21  Unexpended TANF funds appropriated to 
 13.22  any state, local, or nonprofit entity 
 13.23  cancel at the end of the state fiscal 
 13.24  year unless appropriating language 
 13.25  permits otherwise. 
 13.26  [TANF FUNDS TRANSFERRED TO OTHER 
 13.27  FEDERAL GRANTS.] The commissioner must 
 13.28  authorize transfers from TANF to other 
 13.29  federal block grants so that funds are 
 13.30  available to meet the annual 
 13.31  expenditure needs as appropriated.  
 13.32  Transfers may be authorized prior to 
 13.33  the expenditure year with the agreement 
 13.34  of the receiving entity.  Transferred 
 13.35  funds must be expended in the year for 
 13.36  which the funds were appropriated 
 13.37  unless appropriation language permits 
 13.38  otherwise.  In accelerating transfer 
 13.39  authorizations, the commissioner must 
 13.40  aim to preserve the future potential 
 13.41  transfer capacity from TANF to other 
 13.42  block grants. 
 13.43  [TANF MAINTENANCE OF EFFORT.] (a) In 
 13.44  order to meet the basic maintenance of 
 13.45  effort (MOE) requirements of the TANF 
 13.46  block grant specified under Code of 
 13.47  Federal Regulations, title 45, section 
 13.48  263.1, the commissioner may only report 
 13.49  nonfederal money expended for allowable 
 13.50  activities listed in the following 
 13.51  clauses as TANF/MOE expenditures: 
 13.52  (1) MFIP cash, diversionary work 
 13.53  program, and food assistance benefits

 14.52  (e) If nonfederal expenditures for the 
 14.53  programs and purposes listed in 
 14.54  paragraph (a) are insufficient to meet 
 14.55  the state's TANF/MOE requirements, the 
 14.56  commissioner shall recommend additional 
 14.57  allowable sources of nonfederal 
 14.58  expenditures to the legislature, if the 
 14.59  legislature is or will be in session to 
 14.60  take action to specify additional 
 14.61  sources of nonfederal expenditures for 
 14.62  TANF/MOE before a federal penalty is 
 14.63  imposed.  The commissioner shall 
 14.64  otherwise provide notice to the 
 14.65  legislative commission on planning and 
 14.66  fiscal policy under paragraph (g). 
 15.1   (f) If the commissioner uses authority

 15.14  expenditure requirements, and if the 
 15.15  legislature is not or will not be in 
 15.16  session to take timely action to avoid 
 15.17  a federal penalty, the commissioner may 
 15.18  report nonfederal expenditures from 
 15.19  other allowable sources as TANF/MOE 
 15.20  expenditures after the requirements of

 15.22  commissioner may report nonfederal 
 15.23  expenditures in addition to those 
 15.24  specified under paragraph (a) as

 15.29  additional allowable sources of 
 15.30  nonfederal TANF/MOE expenditures to the 
 15.31  members of the legislative commission 
 15.32  on planning and fiscal policy for their 
 15.33  review.

 15.35  not incorporate any changes in federal 
 15.36  TANF expenditures or nonfederal

 27.50  limiting the caseload growth of the TBI 
 27.51  waiver to 150 in each year of the 
 27.52  biennium.  Priorities for the
