                        CHAPTER 611-S.F.No. 1559 
           An act relating to public utilities; permitting the 
          public utilities commission to order reimbursement 
          payments to intervenors in telephone rate proceedings; 
          amending Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 237.075, by 
          adding a subdivision. 
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 237.075, is 
amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
    Subd. 10.  [INTERVENOR REIMBURSEMENT.] The commission may 
order a telephone company to pay all or a portion of a party's 
intervention costs not to exceed $20,000 per intervention in any 
general rate case when the commission finds that the intervenor 
has materially assisted the commission's deliberation and the 
intervenor has insufficient financial resources to afford the 
costs of intervention.  No entity which provides telephone 
services of any kind is eligible for reimbursement of 
intervention costs under this subdivision.  
    Sec. 2.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.] 
    This act is effective the day after final enactment and 
shall apply to expenses incurred after the effective date. 
    Approved May 2, 1984
