Subd. 2.

Adopting standards.

(a) The Pollution Control Agency shall improve air
quality by promoting, in the most practicable way possible, the use of energy sources and
waste disposal methods which produce or emit the least air contaminants consistent with
the agency's overall goal of reducing all forms of pollution. The agency shall also adopt
standards of air quality, new text beginnot new text endincluding maximum allowable standards of emission of air
contaminants from motor vehicles, recognizing that due to variable factors, no single standard
of purity of air is applicable to all areas of the state. In adopting standards the Pollution
Control Agency shall give due recognition to the fact that the quantity or characteristics of
air contaminants or the duration of their presence in the atmosphere, which may cause air
pollution in one area of the state, may cause less or not cause any air pollution in another
area of the state, and it shall take into consideration in this connection such factors, including
others which it may deem proper, as existing physical conditions, zoning classifications,
topography, prevailing wind directions and velocities, and the fact that a standard of air
quality which may be proper as to an essentially residential area of the state, may not be
proper as to a highly developed industrial area of the state. Such standards of air quality
shall be premised upon scientific knowledge of causes as well as effects based on technically
substantiated criteria and commonly accepted practices. No local government unit shall set
standards of air quality which are more stringent than those set by the Pollution Control
Agency.

(b) The Pollution Control Agency shall promote solid waste disposal control by
encouraging the updating of collection systems, elimination of open dumps, and
improvements in incinerator practices. The agency shall also adopt standards for the control
of the collection, transportation, storage, processing, and disposal of solid waste and sewage
sludge for the prevention and abatement of water, air, and land pollution, recognizing that
due to variable factors, no single standard of control is applicable to all areas of the state.
In adopting standards, the Pollution Control Agency shall give due recognition to the fact
that elements of control which may be reasonable and proper in densely populated areas of
the state may be unreasonable and improper in sparsely populated or remote areas of the
state, and it shall take into consideration in this connection such factors, including others
which it may deem proper, as existing physical conditions, topography, soils and geology,
climate, transportation, and land use. Such standards of control shall be premised on technical
criteria and commonly accepted practices.

(c) The Pollution Control Agency shall also adopt standards describing the maximum
levels of noise in terms of sound pressure level which may occur in the outdoor atmosphere,
recognizing that due to variable factors no single standard of sound pressure is applicable
to all areas of the state. Such standards shall give due consideration to such factors as the
intensity of noises, the types of noises, the frequency with which noises recur, the time
period for which noises continue, the times of day during which noises occur, and such
other factors as could affect the extent to which noises may be injurious to human health
or welfare, animal or plant life, or property, or could interfere unreasonably with the
enjoyment of life or property. In adopting standards, the Pollution Control Agency shall
give due recognition to the fact that the quantity or characteristics of noise or the duration
of its presence in the outdoor atmosphere, which may cause noise pollution in one area of
the state, may cause less or not cause any noise pollution in another area of the state, and
it shall take into consideration in this connection such factors, including others which it
may deem proper, as existing physical conditions, zoning classifications, topography,
meteorological conditions and the fact that a standard which may be proper in an essentially
residential area of the state, may not be proper as to a highly developed industrial area of
the state. Such noise standards shall be premised upon scientific knowledge as well as effects
based on technically substantiated criteria and commonly accepted practices. No local
governing unit shall set standards describing the maximum levels of sound pressure which
are more stringent than those set by the Pollution Control Agency.

(d) The Pollution Control Agency shall adopt standards for the identification of hazardous
waste and for the management, identification, labeling, classification, storage, collection,
transportation, processing, and disposal of hazardous waste, recognizing that due to variable
factors, a single standard of hazardous waste control may not be applicable to all areas of
the state. In adopting standards, the Pollution Control Agency shall recognize that elements
of control which may be reasonable and proper in densely populated areas of the state may
be unreasonable and improper in sparsely populated or remote areas of the state. The agency
shall consider existing physical conditions, topography, soils, and geology, climate,
transportation and land use. Standards of hazardous waste control shall be premised on
technical knowledge, and commonly accepted practices. Hazardous waste generator licenses
may be issued for a term not to exceed five years. No local government unit shall set
standards of hazardous waste control which are in conflict or inconsistent with those set by
the Pollution Control Agency.

(e) A person who generates less than 100 kilograms of hazardous waste per month is
exempt from the following agency hazardous waste rules:

(1) rules relating to transportation, manifesting, storage, and labeling for photographic
fixer and x-ray negative wastes that are hazardous solely because of silver content; and

(2) any rule requiring the generator to send to the agency or commissioner a copy of
each manifest for the transportation of hazardous waste for off-site treatment, storage, or
disposal, except that counties within the metropolitan area may require generators to provide
manifests.

Nothing in this paragraph exempts the generator from the agency's rules relating to on-site
accumulation or outdoor storage. A political subdivision or other local unit of government
may not adopt management requirements that are more restrictive than this paragraph.

(f) In any rulemaking proceeding under chapter 14 to adopt standards for air quality,
solid waste, or hazardous waste under this chapter, or standards for water quality under
chapter 115, the statement of need and reasonableness must include:

(1) an assessment of any differences between the proposed rule and:

(i) existing federal standards adopted under the Clean Air Act, United States Code, title
42, section 7412(b)(2); the Clean Water Act, United States Code, title 33, sections 1312(a)
and 1313(c)(4); and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, United States Code, title
42, section 6921(b)(1);

(ii) similar standards in states bordering Minnesota; and

(iii) similar standards in states within the Environmental Protection Agency Region 5;
and

(2) a specific analysis of the need and reasonableness of each difference.

the total votes cast for each candidate or question. In state primary and state general elections,
the results must indicate the total votes cast for each candidate or question in each precinct
and report the vote totals tabulated for each precinct. The count must be recorded on a
summary statement in substantially the same format as provided in section 204C.26. The

no later than 24 hours after the end of the hours for voting, that voters whose absentee ballots
arrived after the rosters were marked or supplemental reports were generated and whose
ballots were accepted did not vote in person on election day. An absentee ballot submitted
by a voter who has voted in person on election day must be rejected. All other accepted
absentee ballots must be opened, duplicated if necessary, and counted by members of the

Subdivision 1.

Check of voter eligibility; proper execution of certificate.

Upon receipt
of an absentee ballot returned as provided in sections 203B.16 to 203B.27, the election
judges shall compare the voter's name with the names recorded under section 203B.19 in
the statewide registration system to insure that the ballot is from a voter eligible to cast an
absentee ballot under sections 203B.16 to 203B.27. The election judges shall mark the
signature envelope "Accepted" and initial or sign the signature envelope below the word
"Accepted" if the election judges are satisfied that:

(1) the voter's name and address on the signature envelope appears in substantially the
same form as on the application records provided to the election judges by the county auditor;

(2) the voter has signed the federal oath prescribed pursuant to section 705(b)(2) of the
Help America Vote Act, Public Law 107-252;

(3) the voter has set forth the same voter's passport number, or Minnesota driver's license
or state identification card number, or the last four digits of the voter's Social Security
number as submitted on the application, if the voter has one of these documents;

(4) the voter is not known to have died; and

(5) the voter has not already voted at that election, either in person or by absentee ballot.

If the identification number described in clause (3) does not match the number as
submitted on the application, the election judges must make a reasonable effort to satisfy
themselves through other information provided by the applicant, or by an individual
authorized to apply on behalf of the voter, that the ballots were returned by the same person
to whom the ballots were transmitted.

An absentee ballot cast pursuant to sections 203B.16 to 203B.27 may only be rejected
for the lack of one of clauses (1) to (5). In particular, failure to place the ballot within the
secrecy envelope before placing it in the deleted text beginouter whitedeleted text endnew text begin signaturenew text end envelope is not a reason to
reject an absentee ballot.

Election judges must note the reason for rejection on the back of the envelope in the
space provided for that purpose.

Failure to return unused ballots shall not invalidate a marked ballot, but a ballot shall
not be counted if the certificate on the deleted text beginreturndeleted text endnew text begin signaturenew text end envelope is not properly executed.
In all other respects the provisions of the Minnesota Election Law governing deposit and
counting of ballots shall apply. Notwithstanding other provisions of this section, the counting
of the absentee ballot of a deceased voter does not invalidate the election.
