           An act relating to human services; authorizing the 
          department of human services to enter into shared 
          service agreements; appropriating money; amending 
          Minnesota Statutes 1986, section 246.57, subdivisions

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1986, section 246.57, 
subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
    Subdivision 1.  [AUTHORIZED.] The commissioner of human 
services, after consultation with the legislative advisory 
committee, may authorize any state hospital regional center or 
state operated nursing home to enter into agreement with other 
governmental entities and both nonprofit and profit health 
service organizations for participation in shared service 
agreements that would be of mutual benefit to the state, the 
other governmental entities and health service organizations 
involved, and the public.  To the extent possible the 
commissioner shall anticipate the costs of these agreements by 
inclusion in the biennial budget request to the legislature. In 
addition, funding for shared service agreements may be provided 
from the contingent appropriation for state institutions to the 
extent that such agreements result in costs not covered by other 
appropriations.  Notwithstanding section 16B.06, subdivision 2, 
the commissioner of human services may delegate the execution of 
shared services contracts to the chief executive officers of the 
regional centers or state operated nursing homes.  No additional 
employees shall be added to the legislatively approved 
complement for any state hospital regional center or state 
nursing home as a result of entering into any shared service 
agreement.  However, positions funded by a shared service 
agreement may be authorized by the commissioner of finance for 
the duration of the shared service agreement.  The charges for 
the services shall be on an actual cost basis and all receipts 
shall be deposited in the general fund.  The receipts are 
appropriated to the commissioner of human services for the 
duration of the shared service agreement to make expenditures 
under the agreement that are not covered by other appropriations.
    Sec. 2.  Minnesota Statutes 1986, section 246.57, 
subdivision 2, is amended to read:  
    Subd. 2.  [REPORTS.] The commissioner of human services 
shall report biennially to the legislature about the number of 
agreements approved for each hospital regional center and state 
operated nursing home, the types of services provided, and the 
amounts collected.  
     Sec. 3.  Minnesota Statutes 1986, section 246.57, is 
amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
    Subd. 4.  [SHARED STAFF OR SERVICES.] The commissioner of 
human services may authorize a regional treatment center to 
provide staff or services to Camp Confidence in return for 
services to, or use of the camp's facilities by, residents of 
the treatment center who have mental retardation or a related 
condition. 
    Sec. 4.  [REPEALER.] 
    Minnesota Statutes 1986, sections 246.57, subdivision 3; 
246.61; 246.62; and 246.63 are repealed.

    This act is effective July 1, 1987.
