certified by the clerk of the municipality must be apportioned to the municipal subdivision
entitled to it;

(2) the portion required to pay any amount included in the appraised value under
section 282.019, subdivision 5, representing increased value due to response actions
taken after forfeiture of the parcel to the state, but not exceeding the amount of expenses
certified by the Pollution Control Agency or the commissioner of agriculture, must be
apportioned to the agency or the commissioner of agriculture and deposited in the fund
from which the expenses were paid;
