BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 84.0272, is 
amended to read: 
    84.0272 [PROCEDURE IN ACQUIRING LANDS.] 
    When the commissioner of natural resources is authorized to 
acquire lands or interests in lands the procedure set forth in 
this section shall apply.  The commissioner of natural resources 
shall first prepare a fact sheet showing the lands to be 
acquired, the legal authority for their acquisition, and the 
qualities of the land that make it a desirable acquisition.  The 
commissioner of natural resources shall cause the lands to be 
appraised.  An appraiser shall before entering upon the duties 
of his office take and subscribe an oath that he will faithfully 
and impartially discharge his duties as appraiser according to 
the best of his ability and that he is not interested directly 
or indirectly in any of the lands to be appraised or the timber 
or improvements thereon or in the sale thereof and has entered 
into no agreement or combination to purchase the same or any 
part thereof, which oath shall be attached to the report of the 
appraisal.  The commissioner of natural resources shall not 
agree to pay more than ten percent above the appraised value.  
The commissioner of natural resources shall submit the appraisal 
to the commissioner of administration as required by section 
84.0271 along with a copy of the fact sheet and any other 
information which the commissioner of natural resources deems 
proper.  New appraisals may be made at the discretion of the 
commissioner of natural resources or the commissioner of 
administration. 
     Sec. 2.  [REPEALER.] 
     Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 84.0271, is repealed.
