                        CHAPTER 139--H.F.No. 529
           An act relating to crimes; providing that acquittal or 
          conviction of the crime of kidnapping does not bar

          time of the victim's confinement; amending Minnesota 
          Statutes 1982, section 609.035; proposing new law
