interest on all state bonds due and to become due through July 1

available in the state bond fund each year before the tax 
otherwise required by the Constitution, article XI, section 7, 
is levied.  
    Subd. 11.  [CONSTITUTIONAL TAX LEVY.] Under the 
Constitution, article XI, section 7, the state auditor must levy 
each year on all taxable property within the state a tax 
sufficient, with the amount then on hand in the state bond fund, 
to pay all principal and interest on state bonds due and to 
become due to and including July 1 in the second ensuing year. 
If levied, this tax must be assessed and extended against real 
property used for the purposes of a homestead, as well as other 
taxable property, notwithstanding section 273.13, subdivisions 6 
and 7.  The tax is not subject to limitation of rate or amount. 
However, the amount of money appropriated from other sources as 
provided in subdivision 10, and actually received and on hand 
prior to the levy in any year, reduces the amount of the tax 
otherwise required to be levied.  The proceeds of the tax must 
be credited to the state bond fund.  
    Subd. 12.  [SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATION FROM GENERAL FUND.] 
If the proceeds of the tax levied under subdivision 11 are ever 
insufficient to make the principal and interest payments on 
state bonds when due, the balance must be paid out of the 
general fund.  The amount needed to pay the balance is 
appropriated from the general fund to the commissioner.  
    Sec. 35.  [16A.651] [INTEREST RATE REDUCTION.] 
    The commissioner may enter into contracts providing for the 
issuance of letters of credit, put options, or other contractual 
rights deemed necessary or desirable to reduce the interest rate 
on state general obligation bonds to be issued by the 
commissioner, and may pay the cost of the contracts from bond 
proceeds, including premiums and accrued interest, received from 
purchasers.  The amount of bonds authorized to be issued by the 
commissioner under any other law adopted before the effective 
date of this section is increased by up to five percent in order 
to provide all or a portion of the money required to be paid 
under the contracts.  The expenditure of bond proceeds for this 
purpose is deemed to be an expenditure for the primary purpose 
for which the bonds covered by the contract are authorized to be 
issued by the Constitution and applicable law.  So much of the 
proceeds of bonds issued by the commissioner as is necessary to 
pay the costs of the letters of credit, put options, or other 
contractual rights is appropriated for this purpose.  
    Sec. 36.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 16A.66, as 
amended by Laws 1983, chapter 301, sections 96, 97, and 98, is

prompt and full payment of all such refunding bonds and the 
interest thereon the full faith and credit and taxing powers of 
the state are irrevocably pledged 16A.641 to refund any 
outstanding state bonds and interest on them.  The proceeds of 
such refunding bonds shall be credited to the account 
established within the state bond fund created by the 
Constitution, and within that fund to such separate bookkeeping 
account as shall have been created for the payment of the bonds 
to be refunded and the interest thereon, and shall be credited 
only against the appropriations in section 16A.641, subdivisions 
9 and 10 and the tax otherwise required by the constitution to

bonds shall not be subject to the restrictions or limitations 
contained in any other law.

refunded thereby.  The proceeds of the refunding bonds may be 
deposited, invested, and applied to accomplish the refunding in 
the manner and upon the conditions as provided in section 
475.67, subdivisions 5 to 10.  The interest rate on refunding 
bonds may exceed that on the refunded bonds refunded when in the 
judgment of if the commissioner and council purpose of refunding 
is nevertheless necessary or desirable for the purpose of 
extending to extend the maturities and reducing to reduce the 
annual amount of the property tax or other funds needed annually 
to pay and to secure the bonds and interest debt. 
    Subd. 4 3.  [APPROPRIATION.] Such moneys as are required

et seq. 
   (8) Notwithstanding clause (7), for state grants under the 
state independent grants program, the eligible cost includes the 
acquisition of land for stabilization ponds and the provision of 
reserve capacity sufficient to serve the reasonable needs of the 
municipality for 20 years in the case of treatment works and 40

    Sec. 43.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 116.16, 
subdivision 4, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 4.  [DISBURSEMENTS.] Disbursements from the fund 
shall be made by the state treasurer upon order of the 
commissioner of finance at the times and in the amounts 
requested by the agency in accordance with the applicable state 
and federal laws and regulations and the state appropriation 
acts law governing such disbursements; except that no 
appropriation or loan of state funds for any project shall be 
disbursed to any municipality until and unless the agency has by 
resolution determined the total estimated cost of the project, 
and ascertained that financing of the project is assured by: 
    (1) A grant to the municipality by an agency of the federal 
government within the amount of funds then appropriated to that 
agency and allocated by it to projects within the state; or 
    (2) A grant of funds appropriated by state law; or 
    (3) A loan authorized by state law; or 
    (4) The appropriation of proceeds of bonds or other funds 
of the municipality to a fund for the construction of the 
project; or 
    (5) Any or all of the means referred to in paragraphs (1) 
to (4); and 
    (6) An irrevocable undertaking, by resolution of the 
governing body of the municipality, to use all funds so made 
available exclusively for the construction of the project, and 
to pay any additional amount by which the cost of the project 
exceeds the estimate, by the appropriation to the construction 
fund of additional municipal funds or the proceeds of additional 
bonds to be issued by the municipality; and 
    (7) Conformity of the project and of the loan or grant 
application with the state water pollution control plan as 
certified to the federal government and with all other 
conditions under applicable state and federal laws and 
regulations law for a grant of state or federal funds of the 
nature and in the amount involved. 
    Sec. 44.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 116.16, 
subdivision 5, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 5.  [RULES.] (a) The agency shall promulgate 
permanent rules and may promulgate temporary rules for the 
administration of grants and loans authorized to be made from 
the fund or from federal funds under the Federal Water Pollution 
Control Act, as amended, which rules, however, shall not be 
applicable to the issuance of bonds by the commissioner of 
finance as provided in section 116.17.  The rules shall contain 
as a minimum: 
    (1) procedures for application by municipalities; 
    (2) conditions for the administration of the grant or loan; 
    (3) criteria for eligibility the ranking of projects in 
order of priority for grants or loans, including those specified 
in subdivision 6 based on factors including the extent and 
nature of pollution, technological feasibility, assurance of 
proper operation, maintenance and replacement, and participation 
in multi-municipal systems; and 
    (4) such other matters as the agency and the director find 
necessary to the proper administration of the grant program. 
    (b) Except as otherwise provided in sections 116.16 to 
116.18, the rules for the administration of state independent 
grants must comply, to the extent practicable, with provisions 
relating directly to protection of the environment contained in 
the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, as amended, and 
regulations and guidelines of the United States environmental 
protection agency promulgated under the act, except provisions 
regarding allocation contained in section 205 of the act and 
regulations and guidelines promulgated under section 205 of the 
act.  This provision does not require approval from federal 
agencies for the issuance of grants or for the construction of 
projects under the state independent grants program. 
    Sec. 45.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 116.16, 
subdivision 9, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 9.  [APPLICATIONS.] Applications by municipalities 
for grants or loans from the fund shall be made to the director 
of the agency on forms requiring information prescribed by rules 
of the agency.  The director shall certify to the agency those 
applications which appear to meet the criteria set forth in 
sections 116.16 to 116.18 and the rules promulgated hereunder, 
and the agency shall award grants or loans on the basis of the 
criteria and priorities established in its rules and in sections 
116.16 to 116.18.  A municipality that is designated under 
agency rules to receive state or federal funding for a project 
and that does not make a timely application for or that refuses 
the funding is not eligible for either state or federal funding 
for that project in that fiscal year or the subsequent year.  
    Sec. 46.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 116.16, is 
amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
    Subd. 9a.  [SUBSEQUENT GRANTS.] A municipality awarded a 
final grant of funding for a project under the program 
established by the 1972 Federal Water Pollution Control Act 
amendments or the state independent grants program is not 
eligible for additional funding to replace that project under 
the federal program or the state program, unless the funding is 
necessary as a result of subsequent changes in state water 
quality standards, effluent limits, or technical design 
requirements, or for a municipality awarded the final grant 
before October 1, 1984, if the funding is necessary for the 
provision of increased capacity.  
    Sec. 47.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 116.18, as 
amended by Laws 1983, chapter 301, section 117, is amended to 
read: 
    116.18 [WATER POLLUTION CONTROL FUNDS; APPROPRIATIONS AND 
BONDS.] 
    Subdivision 1.  [APPROPRIATION FROM THE FUND.] The sum of 
$155,000,000 $167,000,000, or so much thereof as may be 
necessary, is appropriated from the Minnesota state water 
pollution control fund in the state treasury to the pollution 
control agency, for the period commencing on July 23, 1971 and 
ending June 30, 1985, to be granted and disbursed to 
municipalities and agencies of the state in aid of the 
construction of projects conforming to section 116.16, in 
accordance with the rules, priorities, and criteria therein 
described.  Except as otherwise provided in this subdivision and 
in subdivision 2, these state funds shall be expended at 15 per 
centum of the eligible cost of construction and shall be 
expended only 
    Subd. 2.  [STATE MATCHING GRANTS PROGRAM ENDING SEPTEMBER 
30, 1984.] (a) For projects tendered, by September 30, 1984, a 
grant of federal funds under section 201(g), section 202, 
section 203 or section 206(f) of the Federal Water Pollution 
Control Act, as amended, 33 U.S.C. 1314 et seq. United States 
Code, title 33, sections 1251 to 1376, at 75 per centum of the 
eligible cost for construction of the treatment works, state 
money appropriated under subdivision 1 must be expended at 15 
percent of the eligible cost of construction, except as 
otherwise provided in this subdivision; provided, that not less 
than ten percent of the cost shall be paid by the municipality 
or agency constructing the project.  In the event that a 
municipality is tendered federal and state grants in a 
percentage cumulatively exceeding 90 per centum of the eligible 
cost of construction, the state pollution control agency shall 
reduce the grant to the municipality under this chapter to the 
extent necessary to assure that not less than ten percent of the 
cost shall be paid by the municipality.  It is the purpose of 
this appropriation that a grant of state funds for each project 
approved in each of the fiscal years ending June 30, 1971 
through 1985, shall be made in an amount not less than that 
required in federal law and regulations as a condition for the 
grant of federal funds for the project and for all other water 
pollution control projects for which federal grants are 
allocated in the same year, in the maximum amount permissible 
under law and regulations. 
    Notwithstanding any other provision, the agency may, in its 
discretion, and after consideration of the amount of state funds 
required to match federal funds, make a grant of state funds not 
exceeding 15 per centum to a municipality that would qualify for 
a grant of federal funds but desires to initiate construction of 
a project without a federal grant.  The agency may limit the 
scope and eligible cost of the project.  
    (b) If a municipality is tendered a grant of federal funds 
under section 201, paragraph (g), section 202, section 203 or 
section 206, paragraph (f) of the Federal Water Pollution 
Control Act, as amended, 33 U.S.C. 1314 et seq. United States 
Code, title 33, sections 1251 to 1376, at 85 percent of the 
eligible cost for construction of treatment works utilizing 
innovative or alternative wastewater treatment processes and 
techniques, state funds shall be expended at nine percent of the 
eligible cost of construction; provided, that not less than six 
percent of the eligible cost of construction shall be paid by 
the municipality or agency constructing the project.  In the 
event that a municipality is tendered federal and state grants 
in a percentage cumulatively exceeding 94 percent of the 
eligible cost of construction, the state pollution control 
agency shall reduce the grant to the municipality under this 
chapter to the extent necessary to assure that the municipality 
receives no more than 94 percent of the eligible cost of 
construction. 
    Subd. 2.  [ADDITIONAL PURPOSES OF APPROPRIATION.] (c) If 
the pollution control agency, acting in accordance with section 
116.16, subdivision 4 and rules promulgated by the agency 
establishing criteria for financial hardship cases, determines 
that the prevention, control, and abatement of water pollution 
and the public health of the state requires the construction of 
a project by a municipality or agency that is unable to provide 
10 percent of the eligible cost thereof, the funds appropriated 
in subdivision 1 may be expended to reduce or eliminate its 
contribution to the eligible cost. 
     Subd. 2a.  [STATE MATCHING GRANTS PROGRAM BEGINNING OCTOBER 
1, 1984.] For projects tendered, on or after October 1, 1984, a 
grant of federal money under section 201(g), section 202, 203, 
or 206(f) of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, as 
amended, United States Code, title 33, sections 1251 to 1376, at 
55 percent or more of the eligible cost for construction of the 
treatment works, state money appropriated under subdivision 1 
must be expended for up to 15 percent of the eligible cost of 
construction for municipalities for which the construction would 
otherwise impose significant financial hardship; provided, that 
not less than 25 percent of the eligible cost must be paid by 
the municipality or agency constructing the project.  If a 
municipality is tendered federal and state grants in a 
percentage cumulatively exceeding 75 percent of the eligible 
cost of construction, the state pollution control agency shall 
reduce the grant to the municipality under this chapter to the 
extent necessary to ensure that not less than 25 percent of the 
eligible cost will be paid by the municipality.  The amounts of 
the matching grants must be based on per connection capital 
cost, median household income, and per capita adjusted assessed 
valuation.  
    Subd. 3a.  [STATE INDEPENDENT GRANTS PROGRAM.] (a) The 
agency may award independent grants for projects for 50 percent 
or, if the agency requires advanced treatment, 65 percent of the 
eligible cost of construction.  The agency may award independent 
grants for up to an additional 15 percent or, if the agency 
requires advanced treatment, up to an additional ten percent of 
the eligible cost of construction to municipalities for which 
the construction would otherwise impose significant financial 
hardship; the amounts of the additional grants shall be based on 
per connection capital cost, median household income, and per 
capita adjusted assessed valuation.  These grants may be awarded 
in separate steps for planning and design in addition to actual 
construction.  Not more than 20 percent of the total amount of 
grants awarded under this subdivision in any single fiscal year 
may be awarded for projects for the control of combined sewer 
overflow as defined by federal regulation.  Until December 31, 
1990, not more than 20 percent of the total amount of grants 
awarded under this subdivision in any single fiscal year may be 
awarded to a single grantee.  
    (b) Up to ten percent of the money to be awarded as grants 
under this subdivision in any single fiscal year shall be set 
aside for municipalities having substantial economic development 
projects that cannot come to fruition without municipal 
wastewater treatment improvements.  The agency shall forward its 
municipal needs list to the commissioner of energy and economic 
development at the beginning of each fiscal year, and the 
commissioner shall review the list and identify those 
municipalities having substantial economic development 
projects.  After the first 90 percent of the total available 
money is allocated to municipalities in accordance with agency 
priorities, the set-aside shall be used by the agency to award 
grants to remaining municipalities that have been identified.  
    (c) Grants may also be awarded under this subdivision to 
reimburse municipalities willing to proceed with projects and 
apply to be reimbursed in the subsequent year conditioned upon 
appropriation of sufficient money under subdivision 1 for that 
year.  The maximum amount of the reimbursement the agency may 
commit in any single fiscal year is equal to the amount newly 
appropriated under subdivision 1 for that year. 
    Subd. 4.  [BOND AUTHORIZATION.] For the purpose of 
providing money appropriated in subdivision 1 for expenditure 
from the Minnesota state water pollution control fund through 
grants to municipalities and agencies of the state for the 
acquisition and betterment of public land, buildings, and 
improvements of a capital nature needed for the prevention, 
control, and abatement of water pollution, the commissioner of 
finance is authorized upon request of the pollution control 
agency to sell and issue Minnesota state water pollution control 
bonds in the amount of $144,000,000 $156,000,000, in the manner 
and upon the conditions prescribed in section 116.17 and in the 
Constitution, Article XI, Sections 4 to 7.  The proceeds of the 
bonds, except as provided in section 116.17, subdivision 5, are 
appropriated and shall be credited to the Minnesota state water 
pollution control fund.  The amount of bonds issued pursuant to 
this authorization shall not exceed at any time the amount 
needed to produce a balance in the water pollution control fund 
equal to the aggregate amount of grants then approved and not 
previously disbursed, plus the amount of grants to be approved 
in the current and the following fiscal year, as estimated by 
the pollution control agency. 
    Subd. 5.  [FEDERAL AND OTHER FUNDS.] All federal and other 
funds made available for any purpose of the water pollution 
control fund are also appropriated to that fund. 
    Subd. 6.  [CONTINUANCE OF APPROPRIATIONS.] None of the 
appropriations made in this section shall lapse until the 
purpose for which it is made has been accomplished or 
abandoned.  The amount of each grant approved for disbursement 
from the water pollution control fund shall be and remain 
appropriated for that purpose until the grant is fully disbursed 
or part or all thereof is revoked by the pollution control 
agency. 
    Sec. 48.  Minnesota Statutes 1983 Supplement, section 
116J.926, subdivision 3, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 3.  [MUNICIPAL OBLIGATION.] A loan shall not be made 
to a municipality until it has entered into an agreement with 
the state providing that the municipality shall make payments of 
principal and interest at least equal in the aggregate to the 
principal amount of the loan plus interest at the rate payable 
on the state bonds.  The annual amounts of the payments shall be 
determined by the commissioner of finance, and need not coincide 
with the principal and interest payments on the bonds.  However, 
the amounts due each year shall be payable prior to the times 
transfers are required to be made pursuant to section 16A.65 
16A.641. The agreement shall obligate the municipality to levy 
an ad valorem property tax equal to the amounts necessary to 
make the payments.  The amount required to be levied may be 
reduced by any other available amounts contained in a special 
fund dedicated to payment of the loan obligation.  
    Sec. 49.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 136.40, 
subdivision 6, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 6.  [APPROPRIATIONS TO STATE UNIVERSITY BOND 
ACCOUNT.] All loan payments to be deposited in the state bond 
fund in accordance with subdivision 2 shall be credited to the 
state university bond account therein.  In order to reduce the 
amount of taxes otherwise required to be levied, in accordance 
with section 16A.65 16A.641, there shall also be transferred to 
the state university bond account from the general fund in the 
state treasury, on November 1 in each year, a sum of money 
sufficient in amount, when added to the balance then on hand 
therein, to pay all Minnesota state university bonds and 
interest thereon due and to become due to and including July 1 
in the second ensuing year.  All money so credited and all 
income from the investment thereof is annually appropriated for 
the payment of such bonds and interest thereon, and shall be 
available in the state university bond account prior to the levy 
of the tax in any year required by the Constitution, Article 11, 
Section 7.  The legislature may also appropriate to the state 
university bond account any other moneys in the state treasury 
not otherwise appropriated, for the security of Minnesota state 
university bonds in the event that sufficient money should not 
be available in the account from the sources herein 
appropriated, prior to the levy of such tax in any year.  The 
commissioner of finance and treasurer are directed to make the 
appropriate entries in the accounts of the respective funds. 
    Sec. 50.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 475A.03, 
subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
    Subdivision 1.  The governing body of any municipality, 
upon compliance with the terms of sections 475A.01 to 475A.06 
and approval of the commissioner of finance may, after July 1, 
1971 and before May 1, 1984, include in general obligation bonds 
of the municipality issued for the purpose of providing funds 
for acquisition to acquire or betterment of to better public 
lands and buildings and other public improvements of a capital 
nature, or bonds issued to refund guaranteed bonds, the 
following statement or such modification thereof consistent with 
sections 475A.01 to 475A.06 as the secretary shall prescribe: 
    The payment of this bond and the interest thereon is 
secured by the state municipal bond guaranty fund in accordance 
with the Minnesota municipal debt service aid law.  
    The bonds may also include the designation "secured by the 
state municipal bond guaranty fund", and the notice of sale of 
such bonds may include a reference to such guaranty.  
    Sec. 51.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 475A.05, 
subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
    Subdivision 1.  For the purpose of providing money to be 
loaned to municipalities for the acquisition to acquire and 
betterment of to better public lands and buildings and other 
public improvements of a capital nature, when needed to pay the 
principal of or interest on bonds issued for this purpose, or 
bonds issued to refund such guaranteed bonds, the municipal bond 
guaranty loan fund is created as a separate bookkeeping account 
in the general books of account of the state.  All proceeds of 
state bonds credited to this fund, all amounts transferred from 
the general fund, all guaranty fees received, and all repayments 
of principal and interest on loans made from the fund are 
appropriated for construction and other permanent improvement 
and shall be available until the purposes for which the 
appropriation was made have been accomplished, except that at 
any time when the balance on hand in the state municipal bond 
guaranty fund exceeds ten percent of the principal amount of all 
then outstanding bonds secured by the fund, the state may 
reappropriate to the general fund the balance in excess of this 
amount.  
    Sec. 52.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 475A.05, is 
amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
    Subd. 1a.  [GENERAL FUND APPROPRIATION.] In order to 
eliminate the need to sell Minnesota state municipal aid bonds, 
there is annually appropriated from the general fund to the 
commissioner of finance for transfer to the municipal bond 
guaranty loan fund the amounts needed to meet the state's 
obligations under sections 475A.01 to 475A.06, not to exceed a 
total of $4,330,000.  This subdivision does not prevent the sale 
of state municipal aid bonds to the extent that the amount 
available for transfer from the general fund is not sufficient 
to meet all the state's obligations under sections 475A.01 to 
475A.06.  
    Sec. 53.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 475A.06,

other public improvements of a capital nature, when needed to 
pay the principal of or interest on bonds issued for this 
purpose or bonds issued to refund such guaranteed bonds, in 
accordance with the provisions of sections 475A.01 to 475A.06.
