           An act relating to local government; regulating 
          contracts for the purchase of fuel by a municipality 
          required for generation of municipal power; allowing 
          municipalities to contract to buy sheltered workshop 
          products without getting competitive bids; amending

          subdivisions. 
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1984, section 471.345, is 
amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
    Subd. 11.  [FUEL CONTRACTS FOR GENERATION OF MUNICIPAL 
POWER.] Notwithstanding the amount of the contract, any contract 
entered into by a municipality for the purchase of fuel required 
for the generation of power from municipal power plants shall be 
governed by subdivision 4. 
    Sec. 2.  Minnesota Statutes 1984, section 471.345, is 
amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
    Subd. 12.  [PROCUREMENT FROM SHELTERED WORKSHOPS.] Nothing 
in this section prohibits a municipality from adopting a 
resolution, rule, regulation, or ordinance that on an annual 
basis designates and sets aside for awarding to sheltered 
workshops as described in section 129A.06 a percentage of the 
value of its anticipated total procurement of goods and 
services, including construction, and which uses either a 
negotiated price or bid contract procedure in the awarding of a 
procurement contract under a set-aside program as allowed in 
this subdivision, provided that any award based on a negotiated 
price shall not exceed by more than five percent the 
municipality's estimated price for the goods and services if 
they were purchased on the open market and not under the 
set-aside program.
