BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 15.059, 
subdivision 3, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 3.  [COMPENSATION.] Members of the advisory councils 
and committees shall be compensated at the rate of $35 per day 
spent on council or committee activities, when authorized by the 
council or committee, plus expenses in the same manner and 
amount as authorized by the commissioner's plan adopted pursuant

employees or employees of political subdivisions shall not 
receive the $35 per day, and if the major part of their 
activities occur during normal working hours for which they are 
also compensated by the state or political subdivision, the 
employer shall deduct the $35 from the employee's compensation 
for the day.  In no other case shall a member who is an employee 
of the state or a political subdivision shall not suffer a loss 
in compensation or benefits from the state or political 
subdivision as a result of his service on the council or 
committee.  Members who are full time state employees or full 
time employees of the political subdivisions of the state may 
receive the expenses provided for in this section unless the 
expenses are reimbursed by another source.  A state employee who 
serves on an advisory council or committee as a representative 
of a specific state department or agency shall not receive the 
$35 per day.  
    Sec. 2.  [136C.075] [COMPENSATION FOR PERFORMANCE

    Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, a state employee 
who is asked by the department of education to undertake a 
performance evaluation of an area vocational-technical school 
may be compensated at the rate provided for in section 15.059.  
    To be eligible for compensation under this section, a state 
employee must take an unpaid leave of absence for the period of 
time the employee performs the evaluation.  
    Sec. 3.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 214.09, 
subdivision 3, is amended to read:

activities, when authorized by the board, plus expenses in the 
same manner and amount as received by state employees authorized 
by the commissioner's plan adopted according to section 43A.18, 
subdivision 2.  If members who are full time state employees or 
employees of the political subdivisions of the state shall not 
receive the $35 per day, and if the major part of their 
activities occur during normal working hours for which they are 
also compensated by the state or political subdivision, the 
employer shall deduct the $35 from the employee's compensation 
for that day.  In no other case shall a board member who is an 
employee of the state or political subdivision shall suffer no a 
loss in compensation or benefits as a result of their service on 
the board.  Members who are state employees or employees of the 
political subdivisions of the state may receive the expenses 
provided for in this subdivision unless the expenses are 
reimbursed by another source.  A state employee who serves on a 
board as a representative of a specific state department or 
agency shall not receive the $35 per day.  
    Sec. 4.  [NORTHWEST MINNESOTA MULTI-COUNTY HOUSING AND

    Section 4 takes effect the day after compliance by the 
governing body of the Northwest Minnesota Multi-County Housing 
and Redevelopment Authority with Minnesota Statutes, section 
645.021, subdivision 3.  
    Sec. 6.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.] 
    Sections 1 and 3 are effective July 1, 1984, except that if 
these sections conflict with a contractual agreement in 
existence on July 1, 1984, they shall not take effect with 
respect to employees covered by that agreement until the
