or a legislative commission established by the coordinating commission, as provided in
section 3.305, subdivision 6, to exercise the powers and discharge the duties of the
coordinating commission under this section or other law requiring action by the coordinating
commission on matters of public employment or compensation.

new text begin (b) "Ratification" must be by law. If a law makes ratification contingent upon the
fulfillment of an express condition, or has an effective date contingent upon the fulfillment
of an express condition, then ratification occurs on the date that the express condition has
been fulfilled or on the effective date, whichever is later. An express condition may include
the enactment of a law. The commissioner of management and budget shall determine
whether an express condition has been fulfilled.
new text end

Sec. 2.

Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 3.855, subdivision 2, is amended to read:


Subd. 2.

State employee negotiations.

(a) The commissioner of management and budget
shall regularly advise the commission on the progress of collective bargaining activities
with state employees under the state Public Employment Labor Relations Act. During
negotiations, the commission may make recommendations to the commissioner as it deems
appropriate but no recommendation shall impose any obligation or grant any right or privilege
to the parties.

(b) The commissioner shall submit to the chair of the commission any negotiated
collective bargaining agreements, arbitration awards, compensation plans, or salaries for
legislative approval or disapproval. Negotiated agreements shall be submitted within five
days of the date of approval by the commissioner or the date of approval by the affected
state employees, whichever occurs later. Arbitration awards shall be submitted within five
days of their receipt by the commissioner. If the commission disapproves a collective
bargaining agreement, award, compensation plan, or salary, the commission shall specify
in writing to the parties those portions with which it disagrees and its reasons. If the
commission approves a collective bargaining agreement, award, compensation plan, or
salary, it shall submit the matter to the legislature to be accepted or rejected under this
section.

new text begin (c) The commissioner shall submit to the chair of the commission any negotiated or
otherwise proposed changes affecting the provision of insurance to state employees, including
any changes to coverage and costs. Any changes must be submitted to the commission
within five days of approval of the commissioner and at least 45 days before submitting a
collective bargaining agreement or compensation plan that incorporates the proposed changes
to the insurance program. If the commission disapproves changes to the state employee
insurance program, the commission shall specify in writing to the commissioner those
portions with which it disagrees and its reasons. The commissioner must not submit to the
commission any collective bargaining agreement or compensation plan that includes any
changes to state employee insurance previously disapproved by the commission unless the
agreement or plan incorporates changes identified by the commission or otherwise addresses
the commission's objections to the changes to the insurance program. The requirements in
this paragraph do not apply to the premiums for insurance that are determined solely by the
commissioner of management and budget and are not negotiated with representatives of
employees.

The commission shall submit the negotiated collective bargaining agreements, salaries,
compensation plans, or arbitration awards for which it has provided approval to the entire
legislature for ratification at a special legislative session called to consider them or at its
next regular legislative session as provided in this section. Approval or disapproval by the
commission is not binding on the legislature.

Wages and economic fringe benefit increases provided for in the agreement or arbitration
decision paid in accordance with the interim approval by the commission are not affected,
but the wages or benefit increases must cease to be paid or provided effective upon the
rejection of the agreement, arbitration decision, salary, or compensation plan, or upon
adjournment of the legislature without acting on it.
