16.14    Sec. 3. Minnesota Statutes 2014, section 253D.28, subdivision 2, is amended to read:
16.15    Subd. 2. Procedure. (a) The Supreme Court shall refer a petition for rehearing and
16.16reconsideration to the chief judge of the judicial appeal panel. The chief judge shall notify
16.17the committed person, the county attorneys of the county of commitment and county of

17.2burden of going forward with the evidence, which means presenting a prima facie case
17.3with competent evidence to show that the person is entitled to the requested relief. If
17.4the petitioning party has met this burden, the party opposing discharge or provisional
17.5discharge bears the burden of proof by clear and convincing evidence that the discharge or
17.6provisional discharge should be denied.
17.7(e) A party seeking transfer under section 253D.29 must establish by a preponderance
17.8of the evidence that the transfer is appropriate.

17.9    Sec. 4. Minnesota Statutes 2014, section 260.012, is amended to read:
17.10260.012 DUTY TO ENSURE PLACEMENT PREVENTION AND FAMILY
17.11REUNIFICATION; REASONABLE EFFORTS.
17.12    (a) Once a child alleged to be in need of protection or services is under the court's
17.13jurisdiction, the court shall ensure that reasonable efforts, including culturally appropriate
17.14services, by the social services agency are made to prevent placement or to eliminate the
17.15need for removal and to reunite the child with the child's family at the earliest possible
17.16time, and the court must ensure that the responsible social services agency makes
17.17reasonable efforts to finalize an alternative permanent plan for the child as provided in
17.18paragraph (e). In determining reasonable efforts to be made with respect to a child and in
17.19making those reasonable efforts, the child's best interests, health, and safety must be of
17.20paramount concern. Reasonable efforts to prevent placement and for rehabilitation and
17.21reunification are always required except upon a determination by the court that a petition
17.22has been filed stating a prima facie case that:
17.23    (1) the parent has subjected a child to egregious harm as defined in section
17.24260C.007, subdivision 14 ;
17.25    (2) the parental rights of the parent to another child have been terminated
17.26involuntarily;
17.27    (3) the child is an abandoned infant under section 260C.301, subdivision 2,
17.28paragraph (a), clause (2);
17.29    (4) the parent's custodial rights to another child have been involuntarily transferred
17.30to a relative under Minnesota Statutes 2010, section 260C.201, subdivision 11, paragraph
17.31(d), clause (1), section 260C.515, subdivision 4, or a similar law of another jurisdiction;
17.32(5) the parent has committed sexual abuse as defined in section 626.556, subdivision
17.332
, against the child or another child of the parent;
17.34(6) the parent has committed an offense that requires registration as a predatory
17.35offender under section 243.166, subdivision 1b, paragraph (a) or (b); or
18.1    (7) the provision of services or further services for the purpose of reunification is
18.2futile and therefore unreasonable under the circumstances; or
18.3    (8) the child was conceived as the result of a parent committing an act of sexual
18.4assault against the mother that involved sexual penetration, as defined in section 609.341,
18.5subdivision 12, and the mother did not grant consent, as defined in section 609.341,
18.6subdivision 4, to the sexual penetration, or pursuant to a violation of a similar law
18.7of another state, territory, possession, or an Indian tribe where the offense occurred.
18.8However, reasonable efforts to prevent placement and for rehabilitation and reunification
18.9may be pursued when the conditions under section 260C.301, subdivision 1, paragraph
18.10(b), clause (10), item (iii) apply.
18.11    (b) When the court makes one of the prima facie determinations under paragraph (a),
18.12either permanency pleadings under section 260C.505, or a termination of parental rights
18.13petition under sections 260C.141 and 260C.301 must be filed. A permanency hearing
18.14under sections 260C.503 to 260C.521 must be held within 30 days of this determination.
18.15    (c) In the case of an Indian child, in proceedings under sections 260B.178, 260C.178,
18.16260C.201 , 260C.202, 260C.204, 260C.301, or 260C.503 to 260C.521, the juvenile court
18.17must make findings and conclusions consistent with the Indian Child Welfare Act of
18.181978, United States Code, title 25, section 1901 et seq., as to the provision of active
18.19efforts. In cases governed by the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978, United States Code,
18.20title 25, section 1901, the responsible social services agency must provide active efforts as
18.21required under United States Code, title 25, section 1911(d).
18.22    (d) "Reasonable efforts to prevent placement" means:
18.23    (1) the agency has made reasonable efforts to prevent the placement of the child in
18.24foster care by working with the family to develop and implement a safety plan; or
18.25    (2) given the particular circumstances of the child and family at the time of the
18.26child's removal, there are no services or efforts available which could allow the child to
18.27safely remain in the home.
18.28    (e) "Reasonable efforts to finalize a permanent plan for the child" means due
18.29diligence by the responsible social services agency to:
18.30    (1) reunify the child with the parent or guardian from whom the child was removed;
18.31    (2) assess a noncustodial parent's ability to provide day-to-day care for the child and,
18.32where appropriate, provide services necessary to enable the noncustodial parent to safely
18.33provide the care, as required by section 260C.219;
18.34    (3) conduct a relative search to identify and provide notice to adult relatives as
18.35required under section 260C.221;
19.1(4) place siblings removed from their home in the same home for foster care or
19.2adoption, or transfer permanent legal and physical custody to a relative. Visitation
19.3between siblings who are not in the same foster care, adoption, or custodial placement or
19.4facility shall be consistent with section 260C.212, subdivision 2; and
19.5    (5) when the child cannot return to the parent or guardian from whom the child was
19.6removed, to plan for and finalize a safe and legally permanent alternative home for the
19.7child, and considers permanent alternative homes for the child inside or outside of the
19.8state, preferably through adoption or transfer of permanent legal and physical custody of
19.9the child.
19.10    (f) Reasonable efforts are made upon the exercise of due diligence by the responsible
19.11social services agency to use culturally appropriate and available services to meet the needs
19.12of the child and the child's family. Services may include those provided by the responsible
19.13social services agency and other culturally appropriate services available in the community.
19.14At each stage of the proceedings where the court is required to review the appropriateness
19.15of the responsible social services agency's reasonable efforts as described in paragraphs
19.16(a), (d), and (e), the social services agency has the burden of demonstrating that:
19.17    (1) it has made reasonable efforts to prevent placement of the child in foster care;
19.18    (2) it has made reasonable efforts to eliminate the need for removal of the child from
19.19the child's home and to reunify the child with the child's family at the earliest possible time;
19.20    (3) it has made reasonable efforts to finalize an alternative permanent home for
19.21the child, and considers permanent alternative homes for the child inside or outside of
19.22the state; or
19.23    (4) reasonable efforts to prevent placement and to reunify the child with the parent
19.24or guardian are not required. The agency may meet this burden by stating facts in a sworn
19.25petition filed under section 260C.141, by filing an affidavit summarizing the agency's
19.26reasonable efforts or facts the agency believes demonstrate there is no need for reasonable
19.27efforts to reunify the parent and child, or through testimony or a certified report required
19.28under juvenile court rules.
19.29    (g) Once the court determines that reasonable efforts for reunification are not
19.30required because the court has made one of the prima facie determinations under paragraph
19.31(a), the court may only require reasonable efforts for reunification after a hearing
19.32according to section 260C.163, where the court finds there is not clear and convincing
19.33evidence of the facts upon which the court based its prima facie determination. In this
19.34case when there is clear and convincing evidence that the child is in need of protection or
19.35services, the court may find the child in need of protection or services and order any of
20.1the dispositions available under section 260C.201, subdivision 1. Reunification of a child
20.2with a parent is not required if the parent has been convicted of:
20.3    (1) a violation of, or an attempt or conspiracy to commit a violation of, sections
20.4609.185 to 609.20; 609.222, subdivision 2; or 609.223 in regard to another child of the
20.5parent;
20.6    (2) a violation of section 609.222, subdivision 2; or 609.223, in regard to the child;
20.7    (3) a violation of, or an attempt or conspiracy to commit a violation of, United States
20.8Code, title 18, section 1111(a) or 1112(a), in regard to another child of the parent;
20.9(4) committing sexual abuse as defined in section 626.556, subdivision 2, against
20.10the child or another child of the parent; or
20.11(5) an offense that requires registration as a predatory offender under section
20.12243.166, subdivision 1b , paragraph (a) or (b).
20.13    (h) The juvenile court, in proceedings under sections 260B.178, 260C.178,
20.14260C.201 , 260C.202, 260C.204, 260C.301, or 260C.503 to 260C.521, shall make findings
20.15and conclusions as to the provision of reasonable efforts. When determining whether
20.16reasonable efforts have been made, the court shall consider whether services to the child
20.17and family were:
20.18    (1) relevant to the safety and protection of the child;
20.19    (2) adequate to meet the needs of the child and family;
20.20    (3) culturally appropriate;
20.21    (4) available and accessible;
20.22    (5) consistent and timely; and
20.23    (6) realistic under the circumstances.
20.24    In the alternative, the court may determine that provision of services or further
20.25services for the purpose of rehabilitation is futile and therefore unreasonable under the
20.26circumstances or that reasonable efforts are not required as provided in paragraph (a).
20.27    (i) This section does not prevent out-of-home placement for treatment of a child with
20.28a mental disability when it is determined to be medically necessary as a result of the child's
20.29diagnostic assessment or individual treatment plan indicates that appropriate and necessary
20.30treatment cannot be effectively provided outside of a residential or inpatient treatment
20.31program and the level or intensity of supervision and treatment cannot be effectively and
20.32safely provided in the child's home or community and it is determined that a residential
20.33treatment setting is the least restrictive setting that is appropriate to the needs of the child.
20.34    (j) If continuation of reasonable efforts to prevent placement or reunify the child
20.35with the parent or guardian from whom the child was removed is determined by the court
20.36to be inconsistent with the permanent plan for the child or upon the court making one of
21.1the prima facie determinations under paragraph (a), reasonable efforts must be made to
21.2place the child in a timely manner in a safe and permanent home and to complete whatever
21.3steps are necessary to legally finalize the permanent placement of the child.
21.4    (k) Reasonable efforts to place a child for adoption or in another permanent
21.5placement may be made concurrently with reasonable efforts to prevent placement or to
21.6reunify the child with the parent or guardian from whom the child was removed. When
21.7the responsible social services agency decides to concurrently make reasonable efforts for
21.8both reunification and permanent placement away from the parent under paragraph (a), the
21.9agency shall disclose its decision and both plans for concurrent reasonable efforts to all
21.10parties and the court. When the agency discloses its decision to proceed on both plans for
21.11reunification and permanent placement away from the parent, the court's review of the
21.12agency's reasonable efforts shall include the agency's efforts under both plans.

21.13    Sec. 5. Minnesota Statutes 2014, section 260C.301, subdivision 1, is amended to read:
21.14    Subdivision 1. Voluntary and involuntary. The juvenile court may upon petition,
21.15terminate all rights of a parent to a child:
21.16(a) with the written consent of a parent who for good cause desires to terminate
21.17parental rights; or
21.18(b) if it finds that one or more of the following conditions exist:
21.19(1) that the parent has abandoned the child;
21.20(2) that the parent has substantially, continuously, or repeatedly refused or neglected
21.21to comply with the duties imposed upon that parent by the parent and child relationship,
21.22including but not limited to providing the child with necessary food, clothing, shelter,
21.23education, and other care and control necessary for the child's physical, mental, or
21.24emotional health and development, if the parent is physically and financially able, and
21.25either reasonable efforts by the social services agency have failed to correct the conditions
21.26that formed the basis of the petition or reasonable efforts would be futile and therefore
21.27unreasonable;
21.28(3) that a parent has been ordered to contribute to the support of the child or
21.29financially aid in the child's birth and has continuously failed to do so without good cause.
21.30This clause shall not be construed to state a grounds for termination of parental rights of a
21.31noncustodial parent if that parent has not been ordered to or cannot financially contribute
21.32to the support of the child or aid in the child's birth;
21.33(4) that a parent is palpably unfit to be a party to the parent and child relationship
21.34because of a consistent pattern of specific conduct before the child or of specific conditions
21.35directly relating to the parent and child relationship either of which are determined by
22.1the court to be of a duration or nature that renders the parent unable, for the reasonably
22.2foreseeable future, to care appropriately for the ongoing physical, mental, or emotional
22.3needs of the child. It is presumed that a parent is palpably unfit to be a party to the parent
22.4and child relationship upon a showing that the parent's parental rights to one or more other
22.5children were involuntarily terminated or that the parent's custodial rights to another child
22.6have been involuntarily transferred to a relative under Minnesota Statutes 2010, section
22.7260C.201, subdivision 11, paragraph (e), clause (1) , section 260C.515, subdivision 4, or a
22.8similar law of another jurisdiction;
22.9(5) that following the child's placement out of the home, reasonable efforts, under the
22.10direction of the court, have failed to correct the conditions leading to the child's placement.
22.11It is presumed that reasonable efforts under this clause have failed upon a showing that:
22.12(i) a child has resided out of the parental home under court order for a cumulative
22.13period of 12 months within the preceding 22 months. In the case of a child under age eight
22.14at the time the petition was filed alleging the child to be in need of protection or services,
22.15the presumption arises when the child has resided out of the parental home under court
22.16order for six months unless the parent has maintained regular contact with the child and
22.17the parent is complying with the out-of-home placement plan;
22.18(ii) the court has approved the out-of-home placement plan required under section
22.19260C.212 and filed with the court under section 260C.178;
22.20(iii) conditions leading to the out-of-home placement have not been corrected. It
22.21is presumed that conditions leading to a child's out-of-home placement have not been
22.22corrected upon a showing that the parent or parents have not substantially complied with
22.23the court's orders and a reasonable case plan; and
22.24(iv) reasonable efforts have been made by the social services agency to rehabilitate
22.25the parent and reunite the family.
22.26This clause does not prohibit the termination of parental rights prior to one year, or
22.27in the case of a child under age eight, prior to six months after a child has been placed
22.28out of the home.
22.29It is also presumed that reasonable efforts have failed under this clause upon a
22.30showing that:
22.31(A) the parent has been diagnosed as chemically dependent by a professional
22.32certified to make the diagnosis;
22.33(B) the parent has been required by a case plan to participate in a chemical
22.34dependency treatment program;
22.35(C) the treatment programs offered to the parent were culturally, linguistically,
22.36and clinically appropriate;
23.1(D) the parent has either failed two or more times to successfully complete a
23.2treatment program or has refused at two or more separate meetings with a caseworker
23.3to participate in a treatment program; and
23.4(E) the parent continues to abuse chemicals.
23.5(6) that a child has experienced egregious harm in the parent's care which is of a
23.6nature, duration, or chronicity that indicates a lack of regard for the child's well-being,
23.7such that a reasonable person would believe it contrary to the best interest of the child

28.22be compelled to disclose the participant's actual address during the discovery phase of or
28.23during a proceeding before a court or other tribunal unless the court or tribunal finds that:
28.24(1) there is a reasonable belief that the address is needed to obtain information or
28.25evidence without which the investigation, prosecution, or litigation cannot proceed; and
28.26(2) there is no other practicable way of obtaining the information or evidence.
28.27The court must provide the program participant with notice that address disclosure
28.28is sought and an opportunity to present evidence regarding the potential harm to the
28.29safety of the program participant if the address is disclosed. In determining whether to
28.30compel disclosure, the court must consider whether the potential harm to the safety of the
28.31participant is outweighed by the interest in disclosure. In a criminal proceeding, the court
28.32must order disclosure of a program participant's address if protecting the address would
28.33violate a defendant's constitutional right to confront a witness.
29.1Disclosure of a participant's actual address under this section shall be limited under
29.2the terms of the order to ensure that the disclosure and dissemination of the actual address
29.3will be no wider than necessary for the purposes of the investigation, prosecution, or
29.4litigation.
29.5Nothing in this section prevents the court or other tribunal may issue from issuing a
29.6protective order to prevent disclosure of information other than the participant's actual
29.7address that could reasonably lead to the discovery of the program participant's location.

29.12before the appropriate presiding judicial officer, arbitrator, or administrative law judge an
29.13action to compel discovery or an action in the nature of an action to compel discovery.
29.14The presiding officer shall first decide whether the data are discoverable or releasable
29.15pursuant to the rules of evidence and of criminal, civil, or administrative procedure
29.16appropriate to the action.
29.17If the data are discoverable the presiding officer shall decide whether the benefit to
29.18the party seeking access to the data outweighs any harm to the confidentiality interests
29.19of the entity maintaining the data, or of any person who has provided the data or who
29.20is the subject of the data, or to the privacy interest of an individual identified in the
29.21data. In making the decision, the presiding officer shall consider whether notice to the
29.22subject of the data is warranted and, if warranted, what type of notice must be given. The
29.23presiding officer may fashion and issue any protective orders necessary to assure proper
29.24handling of the data by the parties. If the data are a videotape of a child victim or alleged
29.25victim alleging, explaining, denying, or describing an act of physical or sexual abuse,
29.26the presiding officer shall consider the provisions of section 611A.90, subdivision 2,
29.27paragraph (b). If the data are data subject to the protections under chapter 5B or section
29.2813.045, the presiding officer shall consider the provisions of section 5B.11.

52.8each of the following five factors:
52.9(i) percent of the total state population aged ten to 24 residing within the county
52.10according to the most recent federal census, and, in the intervening years between the
52.11taking of the federal census, according to the most recent estimate of the state demographer;
52.12(ii) percent of the statewide total number of felony case filings occurring within the
52.13county, as determined by the state court administrator;
52.14(iii) percent of the statewide total number of juvenile case filings occurring within
52.15the county, as determined by the state court administrator;
52.16(iv) percent of the statewide total number of gross misdemeanor case filings
52.17occurring within the county, as determined by the state court administrator; and
52.18(v) percent of the total statewide number of convicted felony offenders who did

52.22three-year period of available data. The percents in items (i) to (v) each must sum to 100
52.23percent across the 87 counties.
52.24(2) For each of the 87 counties, the county's percents in clause (1), items (i) to (v),
52.25must be weighted, summed, and divided by the sum of the weights to yield an average
52.26percent for each county, referred to as the county's "composite need percent." When
52.27performing this calculation, the weight for each of the percents in clause (1), items (i) to
52.28(v), is 1.0. The composite need percent must sum to 100 percent across the 87 counties.
52.29(3) For each of the 87 counties, the county's "adjusted net tax capacity percent" is
52.30the county's adjusted net tax capacity amount, defined in the same manner as it is defined
52.31for cities in section 477A.011, subdivision 20, divided by the statewide total adjusted net
52.32tax capacity amount. The adjusted net tax capacity percent must sum to 100 percent
52.33across the 87 counties.
52.34(4) For each of the 87 counties, the county's composite need percent must be divided
52.35by the county's adjusted net tax capacity percent to produce a ratio that, when multiplied
53.1by the county's composite need percent, results in the county's "tax base adjusted need
53.2percent."
53.3(5) For each of the 87 counties, the county's tax base adjusted need percent must
53.4be added to twice the composite need percent, and the sum must be divided by 3, to
53.5yield the county's "weighted need percent."
53.6(6) Each participating county's weighted need percent must be added to the weighted
53.7need percent of each other participating county to yield the "total weighted need percent
53.8for participating counties."
53.9(7) Each participating county's weighted need percent must be divided by the total
53.10weighted need percent for participating counties to yield the county's "share percent." The
53.11share percents for participating counties must sum to 100 percent.
53.12(8) Each participating county's "base funding amount" is the aid amount that the
53.13county received under this section for fiscal year 1995 plus the amount received in
53.14caseload or workload reduction, felony caseload reduction, and sex offender supervision
53.15grants in fiscal year 2015, as reported by the commissioner of corrections. In fiscal year
53.161997 and thereafter, no county's aid amount under this section may be less than its base
53.17funding amount, provided that the total amount appropriated for this purpose is at least as
53.18much as the aggregate base funding amount defined in clause (9).
53.19(9) The "aggregate base funding amount" is equal to the sum of the base funding
53.20amounts for all participating counties. If a county that participated under this section
53.21during fiscal year 1995 chooses not to participate in any given year, then the aggregate
53.22base funding amount must be reduced by that county's base funding amount. If a county
53.23that did not participate under this section in fiscal year 1995 chooses to participate in any
53.24given year on or after July 1, 2015, then the aggregate base funding amount must be
53.25increased by the amount of aid that the county would have received had it participated in
53.26fiscal year 1995 plus the estimated amount it would have received in caseload or workload
53.27reduction, felony caseload reduction, and sex offender supervision grants in fiscal year
53.282015, as reported by the commissioner of corrections, and the amount of increase shall be
53.29that county's base funding amount.
53.30(10) In any given year, the total amount appropriated for this purpose first must be
53.31allocated to participating counties in accordance with each county's base funding amount.
53.32Then, any remaining amount in excess of the aggregate base funding amount must be
53.33allocated to participating counties in proportion to each county's share percent, and is
53.34referred to as the county's "formula amount."
53.35Each participating county's "community corrections aid amount" equals the sum of
53.36(i) the county's base funding amount, and (ii) the county's formula amount.
54.1(11) However, if in any year the total amount appropriated for the purpose of this
54.2section is less than the aggregate base funding amount, then each participating county's
54.3community corrections aid amount is the product of (i) the county's base funding amount
54.4multiplied by (ii) the ratio of the total amount appropriated to the aggregate base funding
54.5amount.
54.6For each participating county, the county's community corrections aid amount
54.7calculated in this subdivision is the total amount of subsidy to which the county is entitled
54.8under sections 401.01 to 401.16.

54.9    Sec. 10. Minnesota Statutes 2014, section 631.461, is amended to read:
54.10631.461 IMPRISONMENT; COUNTY JAIL; ALTERNATIVES.
54.11(a) When a sentence for an offense includes imprisonment in a county jail, the
54.12court may sentence the offender to imprisonment in a workhouse or correctional or work
54.13farm if there is one in the county where the offender is tried or where the offense was
54.14committed. If not, the court may sentence the offender to imprisonment in a workhouse or
54.15correctional or work farm in any county in this state. However, the county board of the
54.16county where the offender is tried shall have some agreement for the receipt, maintenance,
54.17and confinement of inmates with the county where the offender has been sentenced to
54.18imprisonment. The place of imprisonment must be specified in the sentence. Inmates may
54.19be removed from one place of confinement to another as provided by statute.
54.20(b) If a court orders or a sheriff permits an offender to serve any portion of the
54.21offender's sentence on electronic surveillance, the court or sheriff may require that the
54.22offender be kept in custody, or that the offender's probation agent directly supervise the
54.23offender until electronic surveillance is activated.
54.24(c) It is the responsibility of the offender placed on electronic surveillance to ensure
54.25that the offender's residence is properly equipped and the offender's telecommunications
54.26system is properly configured to support electronic surveillance prior to being released
54.27from custody or the direct supervision of a probation agent. An offender who fails to
54.28comply with this paragraph may be found in violation of the offender's conditions of
54.29release after a revocation hearing.

54.30    Sec. 11. SHERBURNE COUNTY COMMUNITY SUPERVISION GRANT.
54.31Notwithstanding Minnesota Statutes, section 401.10, subdivision 2, any state funds
54.32appropriated in fiscal year 2015 for community supervision in Sherburne County that are
54.33unallocated after funds are transferred under the Community Corrections Act formula to
55.1fund Sherburne County's participation in the act shall be transferred by the commissioner
55.2to Sherburne County in the form of a caseload and workload reduction grant.

55.3    Sec. 12. COLTON'S LAW.
55.4Sections 6, 7, 8, 10, and 13 shall be known as "Colton's Law."

55.5    Sec. 13. ELECTRONIC SURVEILLANCE; PURPOSE STATEMENT.
55.6The purpose of electronic surveillance of adult and juvenile offenders is to provide a
55.7cost-effective alternative to incarceration or detention for deserving low-risk offenders.
55.8It is a privilege for an adult or juvenile offender to be placed on electronic surveillance
55.9in lieu of remaining in custody to complete a period of incarceration or detention. The
55.10parties who authorize and implement electronic surveillance shall take all reasonable
55.11precautions to protect public safety.
