Subdivision 1.

Adoption of code.

(a) Subject to paragraphs (c) and (d) and sections
326B.101 to 326B.194, the commissioner shall by rule and in consultation with the
Construction Codes Advisory Council establish a code of standards for the construction,
reconstruction, alteration, and repair of buildings, governing matters of structural materials,
design and construction, fire protection, health, sanitation, and safety, including design and
construction standards regarding heat loss control, illumination, and climate control. The
code must also include duties and responsibilities for code administration, including
procedures for administrative action, penalties, and suspension and revocation of certification.
The code must conform insofar as practicable to model building codes generally accepted
and in use throughout the United States, including a code for building conservation. In the
preparation of the code, consideration must be given to the existing statewide specialty
codes presently in use in the state. Model codes with necessary modifications and statewide
specialty codes may be adopted by reference. The code must be based on the application
of scientific principles, approved tests, and professional judgment. To the extent possible,
the code must be adopted in terms of desired results instead of the means of achieving those
results, avoiding wherever possible the incorporation of specifications of particular methods
or materials. To that end the code must encourage the use of new methods and new materials.
Except as otherwise provided in sections 326B.101 to 326B.194, the commissioner shall
administer and enforce the provisions of those sections.

(b) The commissioner shall develop rules addressing the plan review fee assessed to
similar buildings without significant modifications including provisions for use of building
systems as specified in the industrial/modular program specified in section 326B.194.
Additional plan review fees associated with similar plans must be based on costs
commensurate with the direct and indirect costs of the service.

(c) Beginning with the 2018 edition of the model building codes and every six years
thereafter, the commissioner shall review the new model building codes and adopt the model
codes as amended for use in Minnesota, within two years of the published edition date. The
commissioner may adopt amendments to the building codes prior to the adoption of the
new building codes to advance construction methods, technology, or materials, or, where
necessary to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public, or to improve the efficiency
or the use of a building.

(d) Notwithstanding paragraph (c), the commissioner shall act on each new model
residential energy code and the new model commercial energy code in accordance with
federal law for which the United States Department of Energy has issued an affirmative
determination in compliance with United States Code, title 42, section 6833. The
commissioner may adopt amendments prior to adoption of the new energy codes, as amended
for use in Minnesota, to advance construction methods, technology, or materials, or, where
necessary to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public, or to improve the efficiency
or use of a building.

new text begin (e) Beginning in 2024, the commissioner shall act on the new model commercial energy
code by adopting each new published edition of ASHRAE 90.1 or a more efficient standard.
The commercial energy code in effect in 2036 and thereafter must achieve an 80 percent
reduction in annual net energy consumption or greater, using the ASHRAE 90.1-2004 as a
baseline. The commissioner shall adopt commercial energy codes from 2024 to 2036 that
incrementally move toward achieving the 80 percent reduction in annual net energy
consumption. By January 15 of the year following each new code adoption, the commissioner
shall make a report on progress under this section to the legislative committees with
jurisdiction over the energy code.
new text end

new text begin (f) Nothing in this section shall be interpreted to limit the ability of a public utility to
offer code support programs, or to claim energy savings resulting from such programs,
through its energy conservation and optimization plans approved by the commissioner of
commerce under section 216B.241 or an energy conservation and optimization plan filed
by a consumer-owned utility under section 216B.2403.

to the building official on request before final construction approval.

(k) Bioprocess piping and equipment. No permit fee for bioprocess piping may be
imposed by municipalities under the State Building Code, except as required under section
326B.92 subdivision 1. Permits for bioprocess piping shall be according to section 326B.92
administered by the Department of Labor and Industry. All data regarding the material
production processes, including the bioprocess system's structural design and layout, are
nonpublic data as provided by section 13.7911.

Employer liability.

If an employer is found by the commissioner to have
violated a section identified in subdivision 4, or any rule adopted under section 177.28new text begin,
181.213, or 181.215
new text end, and the commissioner issues an order to comply, the commissioner
shall order the employer to cease and desist from engaging in the violative practice and to
take such affirmative steps that in the judgment of the commissioner will effectuate the
purposes of the section or rule violated. The commissioner shall order the employer to pay
to the aggrieved parties back pay, gratuities, and compensatory damages, less any amount
actually paid to the employee by the employer, and for an additional equal amount as
liquidated damages. Any employer who is found by the commissioner to have repeatedly
or willfully violated a section or sections identified in subdivision 4 shall be subject to a
civil penalty of up to $1,000 for each violation for each employee. In determining the amount
of a civil penalty under this subdivision, the appropriateness of such penalty to the size of
the employer's business and the gravity of the violation shall be considered. In addition, the
commissioner may order the employer to reimburse the department and the attorney general
for all appropriate litigation and hearing costs expended in preparation for and in conducting
the contested case proceeding, unless payment of costs would impose extreme financial
hardship on the employer. If the employer is able to establish extreme financial hardship,
then the commissioner may order the employer to pay a percentage of the total costs that
will not cause extreme financial hardship. Costs include but are not limited to the costs of
services rendered by the attorney general, private attorneys if engaged by the department,
administrative law judges, court reporters, and expert witnesses as well as the cost of
transcripts. Interest shall accrue on, and be added to, the unpaid balance of a commissioner's
order from the date the order is signed by the commissioner until it is paid, at an annual rate
provided in section 549.09, subdivision 1, paragraph (c). The commissioner may establish
escrow accounts for purposes of distributing damages.

EMPLOYMENT STANDARDS.
new text end

new text begin Subdivision 1. new text end

new text begin Authority to establish minimum nursing home employment
standards.
new text end

new text begin (a) The board must adopt rules establishing minimum nursing home employment
standards that are reasonably necessary and appropriate to protect the health and welfare
of nursing home workers, to ensure that nursing home workers are properly trained about
and fully informed of their rights under sections 181.211 to 181.217, and to otherwise satisfy
the purposes of sections 181.211 to 181.217. Standards established by the board must include
standards on compensation for nursing home workers, and may include recommendations
under paragraph (c). The board may not adopt standards that are less protective of or
beneficial to nursing home workers as any other applicable statute or rule or any standard
previously established by the board unless there is a determination by the board under
subdivision 2 that existing standards exceed the operating payment rate and external fixed
costs payment rates included in the most recent budget and economic forecast completed
under section 16A.103. In establishing standards under this section, the board must establish
statewide standards, and may adopt standards that apply to specific nursing home occupations.
new text end

new text begin (b) The board must adopt rules establishing initial standards for wages for nursing home
workers no later than August 1, 2024. The board may use the authority in section 14.389
to adopt rules under this paragraph. The board shall consult with the department in the
development of these standards prior to beginning the rule adoption process.
new text end

new text begin (c) To the extent that any minimum standards that the board finds are reasonably
necessary and appropriate to protect the health and welfare of nursing home workers fall
within the jurisdiction of chapter 182, the board shall not adopt rules establishing the
standards but shall instead recommend the occupational health and safety standards to the
commissioner. The commissioner shall adopt nursing home health and safety standards
under section 182.655 as recommended by the board, unless the commissioner determines
that the recommended standard is outside the statutory authority of the commissioner,
presents enforceability challenges, is infeasible to implement, or is otherwise unlawful and
issues a written explanation of this determination.
new text end

new text begin Subd. 2. new text end

new text begin Investigation of market conditions. new text end

new text begin (a) The board must investigate market
conditions and the existing wages, benefits, and working conditions of nursing home workers
for specific geographic areas of the state and specific nursing home occupations. Based on
this information, the board must seek to adopt minimum nursing home employment standards
that meet or exceed existing industry conditions for a majority of nursing home workers in
the relevant geographic area and nursing home occupation. Except for standards exceeding
the threshold determined in paragraph (d), initial employment standards established by the
board are effective beginning January 1, 2025, and shall remain in effect until any subsequent
standards are adopted by rules.
new text end

new text begin (b) The board must consider the following types of information in making determinations
that employment standards are reasonably necessary to protect the health and welfare of
nursing home workers:
new text end

new text begin (1) wage rate and benefit data collected by or submitted to the board for nursing home
workers in the relevant geographic area and nursing home occupations;
new text end

new text begin (2) statements showing wage rates and benefits paid to nursing home workers in the
relevant geographic area and nursing home occupations;
new text end

new text begin (3) signed collective bargaining agreements applicable to nursing home workers in the
relevant geographic area and nursing home occupations;
new text end

new text begin (4) testimony and information from current and former nursing home workers, worker
organizations, nursing home employers, and employer organizations;
new text end

new text begin (5) local minimum nursing home employment standards;
new text end

new text begin (6) information submitted by or obtained from state and local government entities; and
new text end

new text begin (7) any other information pertinent to establishing minimum nursing home employment
standards.
new text end

new text begin (c) In considering wage and benefit increases, the board must determine the impact of
nursing home operating payment rates determined pursuant to section 256R.21, subdivision
3, and the employee benefits portion of the external fixed costs payment rate determined
pursuant to section 256R.25. If the board, in consultation with the commissioner of human
services, determines the operating payment rate and employee benefits portion of the external
fixed costs payment rate will increase to comply with the new employment standards, the
board shall report to the legislature the increase in funding needed to increase payment rates
to comply with the new employment standards and must make implementation of any new
nursing home employment standards contingent upon an appropriation, as determined by
sections 256R.21 and 256R.25, to fund the rate increase necessary to comply with the new
employment standards.
new text end

new text begin (d) In evaluating the impact of the employment standards on payment rates determined
by sections 256R.21 and 256R.25, the board, in consultation with the commissioner of
human services, must consider the following:
new text end

new text begin (1) the statewide average wage rates for employees pursuant to section 256R.10,
subdivision 5, and benefit rates pursuant to section 256R.02, subdivisions 18 and 22, as
determined by the annual Medicaid cost report used to determine the operating payment
rate and the employee benefits portion of the external fixed costs payment rate for the first
day of the calendar year immediately following the date the board has established minimum
wage and benefit levels;
new text end

new text begin (2) compare the results of clause (1) to the operating payment rate and employee benefits
portion of the external fixed costs payment rate increase for the first day of the second
calendar year after the adoption of any nursing home employment standards included in the
most recent budget and economic forecast completed under section 16A.103; and
new text end

new text begin (3) if the established nursing home employment standards result in an increase in costs
that exceed the operating payment rate and external fixed costs payment rate increase
included in the most recent budget and economic forecast completed under section 16A.103,
effective on the proposed implementation date of the new nursing home employment
standards, the board must determine if the rates will need to be increased to meet the new
employment standards and the standards must not be effective until an appropriation sufficient
to cover the rate increase and federal approval of the rate increase is obtained.
new text end

new text begin (e) The budget and economic forecasts completed under section 16A.103 shall not
assume an increase in payment rates determined under chapter 256R resulting from the new
employment standards until the board certifies the rates will need to be increased and the
legislature appropriates funding for the increase in payment rates.
new text end

new text begin Subd. 3. new text end

new text begin Review of standards. new text end

new text begin At least once every two years, the board shall:

recommendations to adopt new rules or amend or repeal existing rules for minimum nursing
home employment standards using the expedited rulemaking process in section 14.389, as
appropriate to meet the purposes of sections 181.211 to 181.217.

new text begin Subd. 4. new text end

new text begin Variance and waiver. new text end

new text begin The board shall adopt procedures for considering

due to compliance with all or part of an applicable standard.
new text end

new text begin Subd. 5. new text end

new text begin Conflict. new text end

new text begin (a) In the event of a conflict between a standard established by the
board in rule and a rule adopted by another state agency, the rule adopted by the board shall

new text end

new text begin (b) Notwithstanding paragraph (a), in the event of a conflict between a standard
established by the board in rule and a rule adopted by another state agency, the rule adopted
by the other state agency shall apply to nursing home workers and nursing home employers
if the rule adopted by the other state agency is adopted after the board's standard and the
rule adopted by the other state agency is more protective or beneficial than the board's
standard.
new text end

new text begin (c) Notwithstanding paragraph (a), if the commissioner of health determines that a
standard established by the board in rule or recommended by the board conflicts with
requirements in federal regulations for nursing home certification or with state statutes or
rules governing licensure of nursing homes, the federal regulations or state nursing home
licensure statutes or rules shall take precedence, and the conflicting board standard or rule
shall not apply to nursing home workers or nursing home employers.

conditions but the conditions remain uncorrected.

An employee who has refused in good faith to perform assigned tasks and who has not
been reassigned to other tasks by the employer shall, in addition to retaining a right to
continued employment, receive pay for the tasks which would have been performed if (1)
the employee requests the commissioner to inspect and determine the nature of the hazardous
condition, and (2) the commissioner determines that the employee, by performing the
assigned tasks, would have been placed in imminent danger of death or serious physical
harm.
