25.225B.11 LEGAL PROCEEDINGS; PROTECTIVE ORDER.
25.23If a program participant is involved in a legal proceeding as a party or witness, If a
25.24program participant's address is protected under section 5B.05, no person or entity shall
25.25be compelled to disclose the participant's actual address during the discovery phase of or
25.26during a proceeding before a court or other tribunal unless the court or tribunal finds that:
25.27(1) there is a reasonable belief that the address is needed to obtain information or
25.28evidence without which the investigation, prosecution, or litigation cannot proceed; and
25.29(2) there is no other practicable way of obtaining the information or evidence.
25.30The court must provide the program participant with notice that address disclosure
25.31is sought and an opportunity to present evidence regarding the potential harm to the
25.32safety of the program participant if the address is disclosed. In determining whether to
25.33compel disclosure, the court must consider whether the potential harm to the safety of the
26.1participant is outweighed by the interest in disclosure. In a criminal proceeding, the court
26.2must order disclosure of a program participant's address if protecting the address would
26.3violate a defendant's constitutional right to confront a witness.
26.4Disclosure of a participant's actual address under this section shall be limited under
26.5the terms of the order to ensure that the disclosure and dissemination of the actual address
26.6will be no wider than necessary for the purposes of the investigation, prosecution, or
26.7litigation.
26.8Nothing in this section prevents the court or other tribunal may issue from issuing a
26.9protective order to prevent disclosure of information other than the participant's actual
26.10address that could reasonably lead to the discovery of the program participant's location.

26.14that the data are classified as not public, the party that seeks access to the data may bring
26.15before the appropriate presiding judicial officer, arbitrator, or administrative law judge an
26.16action to compel discovery or an action in the nature of an action to compel discovery.
26.17The presiding officer shall first decide whether the data are discoverable or releasable
26.18pursuant to the rules of evidence and of criminal, civil, or administrative procedure
26.19appropriate to the action.
26.20If the data are discoverable the presiding officer shall decide whether the benefit to
26.21the party seeking access to the data outweighs any harm to the confidentiality interests
26.22of the entity maintaining the data, or of any person who has provided the data or who
26.23is the subject of the data, or to the privacy interest of an individual identified in the
26.24data. In making the decision, the presiding officer shall consider whether notice to the
26.25subject of the data is warranted and, if warranted, what type of notice must be given. The
26.26presiding officer may fashion and issue any protective orders necessary to assure proper
26.27handling of the data by the parties. If the data are a videotape of a child victim or alleged
26.28victim alleging, explaining, denying, or describing an act of physical or sexual abuse,
26.29the presiding officer shall consider the provisions of section 611A.90, subdivision 2,
26.30paragraph (b). If the data are data subject to the protections under chapter 5B or section
26.3113.045, the presiding officer shall consider the provisions of section 5B.11.

56.15inmate who fails to comply with this paragraph may be found in violation of the inmate's
56.16conditions of release after a revocation hearing.

56.17    Sec. 8. Minnesota Statutes 2014, section 260B.198, is amended by adding a
56.18subdivision to read:
56.19    Subd. 13. Electronic surveillance. (a) If a court orders a juvenile adjudicated
56.20delinquent to serve any portion of the juvenile's disposition on electronic surveillance,
56.21the court may require that the juvenile be kept in custody, or that the juvenile's probation

56.27    Sec. 9. Minnesota Statutes 2014, section 401.10, subdivision 1, is amended to read:
56.28    Subdivision 1. Aid calculations. To determine the community corrections aid
56.29amount to be paid to each participating county, the commissioner of corrections must
56.30apply the following formula:
56.31(1) For each of the 87 counties in the state, a percent score must be calculated for
56.32each of the following five factors:
57.1(i) percent of the total state population aged ten to 24 residing within the county
57.2according to the most recent federal census, and, in the intervening years between the
57.3taking of the federal census, according to the most recent estimate of the state demographer;
57.4(ii) percent of the statewide total number of felony case filings occurring within the
57.5county, as determined by the state court administrator;
57.6(iii) percent of the statewide total number of juvenile case filings occurring within
57.7the county, as determined by the state court administrator;
57.8(iv) percent of the statewide total number of gross misdemeanor case filings
57.9occurring within the county, as determined by the state court administrator; and
57.10(v) percent of the total statewide number of convicted felony offenders who did
57.11not receive an executed prison sentence, as monitored and reported by the Sentencing
57.12Guidelines Commission.
57.13The percents in items (ii) to (v) must be calculated by combining the most recent
57.14three-year period of available data. The percents in items (i) to (v) each must sum to 100
57.15percent across the 87 counties.
57.16(2) For each of the 87 counties, the county's percents in clause (1), items (i) to (v),
57.17must be weighted, summed, and divided by the sum of the weights to yield an average
57.18percent for each county, referred to as the county's "composite need percent." When
57.19performing this calculation, the weight for each of the percents in clause (1), items (i) to
57.20(v), is 1.0. The composite need percent must sum to 100 percent across the 87 counties.
57.21(3) For each of the 87 counties, the county's "adjusted net tax capacity percent" is
57.22the county's adjusted net tax capacity amount, defined in the same manner as it is defined
57.23for cities in section 477A.011, subdivision 20, divided by the statewide total adjusted net
57.24tax capacity amount. The adjusted net tax capacity percent must sum to 100 percent
57.25across the 87 counties.
57.26(4) For each of the 87 counties, the county's composite need percent must be divided
57.27by the county's adjusted net tax capacity percent to produce a ratio that, when multiplied
57.28by the county's composite need percent, results in the county's "tax base adjusted need
57.29percent."
57.30(5) For each of the 87 counties, the county's tax base adjusted need percent must
57.31be added to twice the composite need percent, and the sum must be divided by 3, to
57.32yield the county's "weighted need percent."
57.33(6) Each participating county's weighted need percent must be added to the weighted
57.34need percent of each other participating county to yield the "total weighted need percent
57.35for participating counties."
58.1(7) Each participating county's weighted need percent must be divided by the total
58.2weighted need percent for participating counties to yield the county's "share percent." The
58.3share percents for participating counties must sum to 100 percent.
58.4(8) Each participating county's "base funding amount" is the aid amount that the
58.5county received under this section for fiscal year 1995 plus the amount received in
58.6caseload or workload reduction, felony caseload reduction, and sex offender supervision
58.7grants in fiscal year 2015, as reported by the commissioner of corrections. In fiscal year
58.81997 and thereafter, no county's aid amount under this section may be less than its base
58.9funding amount, provided that the total amount appropriated for this purpose is at least as
58.10much as the aggregate base funding amount defined in clause (9).
58.11(9) The "aggregate base funding amount" is equal to the sum of the base funding
58.12amounts for all participating counties. If a county that participated under this section
58.13during fiscal year 1995 chooses not to participate in any given year, then the aggregate
58.14base funding amount must be reduced by that county's base funding amount. If a county
58.15that did not participate under this section in fiscal year 1995 chooses to participate in any
58.16given year on or after July 1, 2015, then the aggregate base funding amount must be
58.17increased by the amount of aid that the county would have received had it participated in
58.18fiscal year 1995 plus the estimated amount it would have received in caseload or workload
58.19reduction, felony caseload reduction, and sex offender supervision grants in fiscal year
58.202015, as reported by the commissioner of corrections, and the amount of increase shall be
58.21that county's base funding amount.
58.22(10) In any given year, the total amount appropriated for this purpose first must be
58.23allocated to participating counties in accordance with each county's base funding amount.
58.24Then, any remaining amount in excess of the aggregate base funding amount must be
58.25allocated to participating counties in proportion to each county's share percent, and is
58.26referred to as the county's "formula amount."
58.27Each participating county's "community corrections aid amount" equals the sum of
58.28(i) the county's base funding amount, and (ii) the county's formula amount.
58.29(11) However, if in any year the total amount appropriated for the purpose of this
58.30section is less than the aggregate base funding amount, then each participating county's
58.31community corrections aid amount is the product of (i) the county's base funding amount
58.32multiplied by (ii) the ratio of the total amount appropriated to the aggregate base funding
58.33amount.
58.34For each participating county, the county's community corrections aid amount
58.35calculated in this subdivision is the total amount of subsidy to which the county is entitled
58.36under sections 401.01 to 401.16.

59.1    Sec. 10. Minnesota Statutes 2014, section 631.461, is amended to read:
59.2631.461 IMPRISONMENT; COUNTY JAIL; ALTERNATIVES.
59.3(a) When a sentence for an offense includes imprisonment in a county jail, the
59.4court may sentence the offender to imprisonment in a workhouse or correctional or work
59.5farm if there is one in the county where the offender is tried or where the offense was
59.6committed. If not, the court may sentence the offender to imprisonment in a workhouse or
59.7correctional or work farm in any county in this state. However, the county board of the
59.8county where the offender is tried shall have some agreement for the receipt, maintenance,
59.9and confinement of inmates with the county where the offender has been sentenced to
59.10imprisonment. The place of imprisonment must be specified in the sentence. Inmates may
59.11be removed from one place of confinement to another as provided by statute.
59.12(b) If a court orders or a sheriff permits an offender to serve any portion of the
59.13offender's sentence on electronic surveillance, the court or sheriff may require that the
59.14offender be kept in custody, or that the offender's probation agent directly supervise the
59.15offender until electronic surveillance is activated.
59.16(c) It is the responsibility of the offender placed on electronic surveillance to ensure
59.17that the offender's residence is properly equipped and the offender's telecommunications
59.18system is properly configured to support electronic surveillance prior to being released
59.19from custody or the direct supervision of a probation agent. An offender who fails to
59.20comply with this paragraph may be found in violation of the offender's conditions of
59.21release after a revocation hearing.

59.22    Sec. 11. ELECTRONIC SURVEILLANCE; PURPOSE STATEMENT.
59.23The purpose of electronic surveillance of adult and juvenile offenders is to provide a
59.24cost-effective alternative to incarceration or detention for deserving low-risk offenders.
59.25It is a privilege for an adult or juvenile offender to be placed on electronic surveillance
59.26in lieu of remaining in custody to complete a period of incarceration or detention. The
59.27parties who authorize and implement electronic surveillance shall take all reasonable
59.28precautions to protect public safety.

59.29    Sec. 12. COLTON'S LAW.
59.30Sections 6, 7, 8, 10, and 11 shall be known as "Colton's Law."
