    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1984, section 246.57, 
subdivision 3, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 3.  [LIMITED AGREEMENTS.] Notwithstanding the 
provisions of subdivision 1, the commissioner of human services 
may authorize a state hospital or state nursing home to enter 
into agreements with other governmental or nonprofit 
organizations for participation in limited shared service 
agreements that would be of mutual benefit to the state, the 
organization involved, and the public.  
    If otherwise permitted under this section, the commissioner 
may authorize limited shared service agreements with for-profit 
organizations concerning laundry services only.  
    The duration of limited agreements may not exceed three 
calendar years and the total dollar amount attributable to a 
limited agreement may not exceed $100,000.  Consultation with 
the legislative advisory committee is not required for 
agreements made pursuant to this subdivision.  The charges for 
services must be on an actual cost basis and receipts are 
dedicated for the operations of the state hospitals or state 
nursing homes that provide the service, and are appropriated for 
that purpose.
