 The state board for community colleges 
may acquire a site and construct, own, 
operate, furnish, and maintain one or 
more dormitories or other student 
residence facilities at Ely for the use 
and benefit of Vermilion Community 
College.  The higher education 
facilities authority may issue revenue 
bonds for the facilities under 
Minnesota Statutes, sections 136A.25 to 
136A.42, and the state board for 
community colleges may borrow the 
proceeds of the revenue bonds to 
finance the acquisition, construction, 
and equipping of the student housing 
facilities.  The board may enter into 
agreements and pledge revenues of the 
facilities as may be necessary to 
provide security for the bonds and may 
mortgage the financed facilities to the 
higher education facilities authority 
or to a trustee for the bondholders if 
considered necessary by the board or 
the authority for the successful 
marketing of the bonds.  The state 
board for community colleges shall 
establish, maintain, revise when 
necessary, and collect rates and 
charges for the use of the student 
housing facilities.  The rates and 
charges must be sufficient, as 
estimated by the board, to pay all 
expenses of operation and maintenance 
of the facilities, to pay principal of, 
and interest on, revenue bonds or other 
obligations when due and to pay 
customary fees and charges of the 
higher education facilities authority 
and to establish and maintain the 
reserve funds that the board considers 
necessary for repair, replacement, and 
maintenance of the facilities.  Funds 
and accounts established in furtherance 
of these purposes are not subject to 
Minnesota Statutes, section 136.67, 
subdivision 2, and are not subject to 
the budgetary control of the 
commissioner of finance.  The board 
shall never be obligated to use other 
revenues of the board or funds of the 
state to pay the costs of construction, 
operation, maintenance, and repair of 
the facilities or to pay principal of 
and interest on obligations issued for 
these purposes.  The city of Ely may, 
without complying with the procedures 
set forth in Minnesota Statutes, 
chapter 475, guarantee all or any part 
of the loan repayment obligation of the 
board to the authority, by pledging its 
full faith and credit and taxing 
power.  The guarantee is not subject to 
any limitation on net debt of the city, 
and taxes required to make any payment 
under the guarantee may be levied 
without limit as to rate or amount.

     Sec. 19.  STATE UNIVERSITIES
     Subdivision 1.  To the state
university board for the purposes
specified in the following subdivisions                52,491,200
 Notwithstanding Minnesota Statutes, 
sections 16B.30 and 16B.31, during the 
biennium, the state university board 
shall supervise and control the 
preparation of plans and specifications 
for the construction, alteration, or 
enlargement of the state university 
buildings, structures, and improvements 
provided for in this section.  During 
the biennium, the state university 
board shall advertise for bids and 
award contracts in connection with the 
improvements, supervise and inspect the 
work, approve necessary changes in the 
plans and specifications, approve 
estimates for payment, and accept the 
improvements when completed according 
to the plans and specifications.  
 Plans must be paid for out of this 
appropriation.  The remainder of the 
appropriation must not be spent until 
the board has secured suitable plans 
and specifications, prepared by a 
competent architect or engineer.  The 
plans and specifications must be 
accompanied by a detailed statement of 
the cost, quality, and description of 
all material and labor required for the 
completion of the work.  No plan may be 
adopted, and no improvement made or 
building constructed, that contemplates 
the expenditure for its completion of 
more money than the appropriation for 
it, unless otherwise provided in this 
act.  The board must not direct or 
permit an expenditure beyond the 
appropriation, and an agent of the 
board violating this provision is 
guilty of a gross misdemeanor.  
 The board shall review and report to 
the governor and the legislature by 
January 15 of each year on the status 
of the capital improvement projects in 
this section.  
 Notwithstanding Minnesota Statutes 
1986, section 16B.24, subdivision 2, 
during the biennium, the state 
university board shall supervise and 
control the making of necessary repairs 
to all state university buildings and 
structures during the biennium ending 
June 30, 1989.  
Notwithstanding other law, during the 
biennium, the state university board, 
on behalf of St. Cloud and Winona state 
universities, may purchase property 
adjacent to or in the vicinity of the 
campuses as necessary for the 
development of the universities.  The 
board shall make a written request to 
the department of administration, real 
estate management division, indicating 
the need to acquire property, specify 
the property to be acquired, and 
indicate the source and amount of money 
needed for the acquisition.  The board 
shall proceed with the acquisition 
consistent with the policies and rules 
established by the department of 
administration.  Before taking action, 
the state university board shall 
consult with the chairs of the senate 
finance committee and the house 
appropriations committee about the 
proposed action.  Should either chair 
object to the proposed purchase, then 
further action must be suspended 
pending presentation of the proposal to 
the legislature for consideration. 
During the biennium, the state 
university board must not prepare final 
plans and specifications for any 
construction or major remodeling 
authorized by this act until it has 
presented the program and schematic 
plans and cost estimates for all 
elements necessary to complete the 
project to the chairs of the house 
appropriations committee and the chair 
of the senate finance committee and the 
chairs have made their 
recommendations.  The recommendations 
are advisory only.  "Construction or 
major remodeling" means construction of 
a new building, or modifications of a 
building whose exterior dimension or 
interior configuration is altered in a 
material way.  Reports on construction 
or major remodeling must summarize the 
current status of the individual 
project, the budget plan, and describe 
any conditions that are not consistent 
with the initial request, legislative 
testimony, or the appropriation.  If 
applicable, schematic design documents 
must accompany the reports.  Reports on 
projects that are not included in the 
above definition must be made before 
awarding bids.  The reports must 
summarize the status of the individual 
projects, the budget plan, and any 
departure that may need to be made from 
the system's initial request.  
Architectural and design work may 
continue in accordance with the project 
schedule unless objections are raised 
by the chairs.  If a unique situation 
arises during the planning process that 
may require a significant departure 
from the initial request or the 
appropriation, the agency or university 
must notify the chairs and await their 
responses before authorizing further 
work on the plans.

     Subdivision 1.  To the commissioner
of administration or others for the purposes 
specified in the following subdivisions             5,403,000
     Subd. 2.  Red Lake Nursing Home                2,500,000
 This appropriation enables the Red Lake 
Indian people to receive skilled and 
intermediate convalescent health care 
without being forced to leave their 
environment, culture, and families.  
This is of direct financial benefit to 
the state because the federal medical 
assistance percentage is 100 percent 
for nursing home care provided to 
Indians through an Indian health 
service facility operated by an Indian 
tribe. 
 This appropriation is from the state 
building fund to the commissioner of 
administration to plan, design, and 
construct a nursing home attached to 
the Red Lake hospital on the Red Lake 
Indian reservation.  The nursing home 
construction is not subject to the 
competitive bidding requirements of 
Minnesota Statutes, chapter 16B, and 
the commissioner of administration may 
contract directly with the Red Lake 
Band of Chippewa Indians to complete 
the facility.  The nursing home must 
meet nursing home licensure and medical 
assistance certification requirements.  
The appropriation is not available 
until the Red Lake Band of Chippewa 
Indians has agreed to lease the nursing 
home from the state for a period at 
least as long as the life of the bonds 
sold to finance the project and for a 
lease payment sufficient to cover the 
cost to the state of borrowing the 
money, in accordance with allowable 
reimbursement costs under the medical 
assistance program as specified under 
state plan requirements under Minnesota 
Statutes, section 246.50.  The initial 
deposit to the state bond fund required 
by Minnesota Statutes, section 16A.65, 
subdivision 1, must be made by the 
commissioner of finance with money 
appropriated from the general fund.  
Interest attributable to the deferred 
repayment of the initial deposit and 
any other deferred payments of 
principal or interest provided for in 
the lease agreement must be amortized 
in equal periodic payments over the 
remainder of the term of the lease.  
The Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians 
must submit cost reports and monthly 
financial statements in a format 
prescribed by the commissioner of human 
services in accordance with section 
246.50.  Lease payments must be 
deducted from medical assistance 
remittances to the tribe for cost of 
care provided at the Red Lake nursing 
home on a monthly basis.  The 
commissioner of human services must 
verify the lease payment deducted from 
each claim on a monthly basis.  The 
lease must provide that, when the bonds 
sold to finance the project have been 
retired and the cost to the state of 
borrowing the money has been paid, the 
state may convey all of its interest in 
the nursing home to the Red Lake Band 
of Chippewa Indians.

plans and cost estimates for all elements necessary to complete 
the project to the chair of the senate finance committee and the 
chair of the house appropriations committee and the chairs have

the agency to whom the appropriation is made in this act may 
transfer the unencumbered balance in the project account to 
another project enumerated in the same section.  The transfer 
must be made only to cover bids for the other project that were 
higher than was estimated when the appropriation for the other 
project was made and not to cover an expansion of the other 
project.  The money transferred under this section is 
appropriated for the purposes for which transferred.  For 
transfers by the state board of vocational technical education, 
the total cost of both projects and the required local share for 
both projects are adjusted accordingly.  The commissioners and 
boards shall report to the chair of the senate finance committee 
and the chair of the house appropriations committee before a 
transfer is made under this section. 
    Sec. 29.  [APPROPRIATIONS FOR CONSTRUCTION; FEDERAL MONEY;

Encumbrance or expenditure of money in excess of the project 
authorization may be made only after the agency has consulted 
with the chair of the senate finance committee and the chair of 
the house appropriations committee and the chairs have made

purchase, or condemnation proceedings.  Condemnation proceedings 
must be under Minnesota Statutes, chapter 117. 
    Sec. 31.  [16A.661] [GENERAL OBLIGATION SPECIAL TAX BONDS.] 
    Subdivision 1.  [AUTHORITY.] When authorized by law enacted 
in accordance with the constitution, article XI, sections 5 and 
7, the commissioner may by order sell and issue general 
obligation special tax bonds of the state evidencing public debt 
incurred for any purpose stated in the law.  The bonds are 
payable primarily from the proceeds of special taxes 
appropriated to special tax bond debt service accounts 
established in subdivision 3 and other money on hand in that 
fund from time to time; however, the bonds are general 
obligations of the state, and the full faith and credit of the 
state are pledged for their payment. 
    Subd. 2.  [MANNER OF ISSUANCE; MATURITIES.] The bonds must 
be issued and sold in accordance with section 16A.641, except 
that the maturities of the bonds and the interest rates 
applicable to the bonds must be fixed so that the principal and 
interest coming due in the 1987-1989 biennium on all bonds 
outstanding at any time does not exceed $46,750,000.  Sections 
16A.672 and 16A.675 apply to the bonds. 
    Subd. 3.  [ESTABLISHMENT OF DEBT SERVICE FUND; 
APPROPRIATION OF DEBT SERVICE FUND MONEY.] (a) There is 
established within the state bond fund a separate and special 
account designated as a general obligation special tax bond debt 
service account.  There must be credited to this debt service 
account in each fiscal year from the tobacco tax revenue fund 
established in section 297.13 an amount sufficient to increase 
the balance on hand in the debt service account on each December 
1 to an amount equal to the full amount of principal and 
interest to come due on all outstanding bonds whose debt service 
is payable primarily from proceeds of the tax to and including 
the second following July 1.  The money on hand in the debt 
service account must be used solely for the payment of the 
principal of, and interest on, the bonds, and is appropriated 
for this purpose.  This appropriation does not cancel as long as 
any of the bonds remain outstanding. 
    (b) There is established within the state bond fund a 
separate and special account designated as a general obligation 
special tax bond debt service account.  There must be credited 
to this debt service account in each fiscal year from the sports 
and health club sale tax revenue fund established in section 49 
an amount sufficient to increase the balance on hand in the debt 
service account on each December 1 to an amount equal to the 
full amount of principal and interest to come due on all 
outstanding bonds whose debt service is payable primarily from 
proceeds of the tax to and including the second following July 
1.  The money on hand in the debt service account must be used 
solely for the payment of the principal of, and interest on, the 
bonds, and is appropriated for this purpose.  This appropriation 
does not cancel as long as any of the bonds remain outstanding. 
    Subd. 4.  [APPROPRIATION FROM GENERAL FUND.] There is 
annually appropriated to the general obligation special tax bond 
debt service accounts from the general fund the amount that, 
added to the amount in the general obligation special tax bond 
debt service accounts on December 1 each year, after giving 
effect to subdivision 3, is equal to the full amount of 
principal and interest to come due on all bonds to and including 
July 1 in the second ensuing year. 
    Subd. 5.  [CONSTITUTIONAL TAX LEVY.] Under the 
constitution, article XI, section 7, the state auditor must levy 
each year on all taxable property within the state a tax 
sufficient, with the amount then on hand in the general 
obligation special tax bond debt service accounts, to pay all 
principal and interest on the bonds due and to become due to and 
including July 1 in the second ensuing year.  The tax is not 
subject to limit as to rate or amount.  However, the amount of 
money appropriated from other sources as provided in 
subdivisions 3 and 4, and actually received and on hand before 
the levy in any year, reduces the amount of the tax otherwise 
required to be levied.  The proceeds of the tax must be credited 
to the appropriate general obligation special tax bond debt 
service account. 
    Subd. 6.  [TAXABILITY; CERTIFICATION.] The commissioner 
shall ascertain from state records and certify to the initial 
purchasers of each series of bonds, subject to the approval of 
the attorney general, that all conditions exist and all actions 
have been taken that are needed to make the series of bonds 
valid and binding general obligations of the state in accordance 
with their terms.  The bonds may be issued without regard to 
whether the interest to be paid on them is includable in gross 
income for federal tax purposes.  However, if it is intended 
that the interest on the bonds be exempt from federal income 
taxes, the commissioner shall also certify for the state on the 
date of issue the facts, estimates, and circumstances that lead 
the commissioner reasonably to expect that the proceeds of the 
bonds and the projects financed by them will not be used in a 
way that would cause the interest on the bonds to be subject to 
federal income taxes; the commissioner may covenant and agree 
with the holders of the bonds that the state will comply with 
the provisions of the United States Internal Revenue Code now or 
hereafter enacted that are or may be applicable to the bonds and 
that establish conditions under which the interest to be paid on 
the bonds will not be subject to federal income taxes; and the 
commissioner and all other state officers shall take the actions 
or refrain from taking the actions necessary to comply with the 
covenants.  Money required to be spent for compliance is 
appropriated to the commissioner from the general fund. 
    Subd. 7.  [APPLICATION AND APPROPRIATION OF PROCEEDS.] The 
proceeds of the bonds must be deposited and spent as provided in 
this subdivision and are appropriated for those purposes.  Any 
accrued interest and any premium received on the sale of the 
bonds, and any amount of bond proceeds determined by the 
commissioner to be needed to pay interest payable on the bonds 
up to 18 months following their issuance, must be credited to 
the appropriate general obligation special tax bond debt service 
account.  Except as otherwise required by law, the balance of 
the bond proceeds shall be credited to the state building fund 
and spent for the purposes specified in the law authorizing the 
issuance of the bonds.  So much of the proceeds as is necessary 
must be used to pay costs incurred in issuing and selling the 
bonds. 
    Sec. 32.  [85.012] [Subd. 19.] [MYSTERY CAVE ADDED TO 
FORESTVILLE STATE PARK.] 
    Subdivision 1.  The commissioner of natural resources is 
authorized to acquire by gift or purchase the lands and 
interests in lands presently owned or controlled by the owners 
and operators of Mystery Cave, in Fillmore county, together with 
such other lands and interests in lands as may be necessary for 
the permanent development of Mystery Cave as a part of the state 
park system.  These lands and interests in lands, when acquired, 
will constitute a part of Forestville state park, and shall be 
administered in the same manner as provided for other state 
parks and shall be perpetually dedicated for such use.  After 
necessary repairs and development, the commissioner may conduct 
guided tours of Mystery Cave and may establish fees therefor.  
These fees shall be deposited in the state park working capital 
fund.  As necessary to the operation of Mystery Cave, the 
commissioner may enter into agreements with local road 
authorities for the maintenance or improvement of roads 
necessary to provide access to the cave. 
    Subd. 2.  The lands and interests in lands which the 
commissioner may acquire by gift or purchase for Mystery Cave 
are described as follows: 
    (1) the North Half of the East 16 acres of the Southeast 
Quarter of the Southeast Quarter, the Southeast Quarter of the 
Southeast Quarter of the Southeast Quarter, and the East 1 acre 
of the Southwest Quarter of the Southeast Quarter of the 
Southeast Quarter in Section 19; the Southwest Quarter of the 
Southwest Quarter of the Southwest Quarter, and the North 20 
acres of the East Half of the Southeast Quarter of Section 20; 
and a 2 rod cartway, the center line being described as 
follows:  Commencing at a point 155 feet West of the northeast 
corner of the Southeast Quarter of the Southeast Quarter of the 
Southeast Quarter of Section 19, thence North 10 degrees 30 
minutes West 600 feet, thence North 38 degrees 15 minutes West 
196 feet, thence North 3 degrees West 460 feet to center of 
cartway; all in Township 102 North, Range 12 West, County of 
Fillmore; and 
    (2) subsurface estates and related rights and interests in 
lands needed for the permanent preservation of the cave and 
permanent development of those parts that will be open to the 
public.  These subsurface estates shall include all minerals and 
mineral rights.  The commissioner may exclude subsurface water 
and water rights from these acquisitions, on the condition that 
the location and drilling of wells be approved by the 
commissioner before drilling and that any water appropriation 
permit not substantially diminish the flow of any subterranean 
stream necessary to the natural condition of the cave.  To the 
greatest extent possible, and for the purpose of avoiding future 
damage to the cave, the commissioner shall specifically include, 
as a part of the subsurface interests acquired, all sand, 
gravel, rock, and any other rights that customarily are regarded 
as interests in surface estates. 
    Subd. 3.  [APPROPRIATION.] $162,000 is appropriated from 
the general fund to the commissioner of natural resources to be 
available until expended for the following purposes to implement 
the acquisition of Mystery Cave as part of Forestville state 
park.  The following amounts are appropriated from the general 
fund to the commissioner for the purposes specified: 
(a) for additional equipment          $ 30,000
(b) for maintenance and operation     $132,000
The approved complement of the department of natural resources 
is increased by one position in the classified service. 
    Sec. 33.  [124.491] [CITATION.] 
    Sections 34 to 38 may be cited as the "cooperative 
secondary facilities grant act."  
    Sec. 34.  [124.492] [POLICY AND PURPOSE.] 
    Because of the rates of decline in school-aged population, 
population shifts and economic changes that the state has 
experienced in recent years and anticipates in future years, and 
because in some instances local school districts have not, and 
will not be able to provide the required construction funds 
through local property taxes, the purpose of the cooperative 
secondary facilities grant program is to provide an incentive to 
encourage cooperation in making available to all secondary 
students those educational programs, services and facilities 
that are most efficiently and effectively provided by a 
cooperative effort of several school districts.  The policy and 
purpose of sections 35 to 37 is to use the credit of the state, 
to a limited degree, to provide grants to cooperating groups of 
school districts to improve and expand the educational 
opportunities and facilities available to their secondary 
students. 
    Sec. 35.  [124.493] [APPROVAL AUTHORITY; APPLICATION 
FORMS.] 
    Subdivision 1.  [APPROVAL BY COMMISSIONER.] To the extent 
money is available, the commissioner of education may approve 
not more than two pilot projects from applications submitted 
under section 36.  The grant money must be used only to acquire, 
construct, remodel or improve the building or site of a 
cooperative secondary facility under contracts to be entered 
into within 15 months after the date on which each grant is 
awarded. 
    Subd. 2.  [APPLICATION FORMS; RULES.] The commissioner of 
education shall prepare application forms.  The state board of 
education shall adopt rules under chapter 14 to govern the 
application process set out in section 36. 
    Sec. 36.  [124.494] [GRANT APPLICATION PROCESS.] 
    Subdivision 1.  [QUALIFICATION.] Any group of school 
districts that meets the criteria required under subdivision 2 
may apply for an incentive grant in an amount up to 75 percent 
of the approved construction costs of a cooperative secondary 
education facility. 
    Subd. 2.  [REVIEW BY COMMISSIONER.] (a) Any group of 
districts that submits an application for a grant shall submit a 
proposal to the commissioner for review and comment under 
section 121.15, and the commissioner shall prepare a review and 
comment on the proposed facility, regardless of the amount of 
the capital expenditure required to acquire, construct, remodel 
or improve the secondary facility.  The commissioner must not 
approve an application for an incentive grant for any secondary 
facility unless the facility receives a favorable review and 
comment under section 121.15 and the following criteria are met: 
    (1) a minimum of three or more districts, with kindergarten 
to grade twelve enrollments in each district of no more than 
1,000 pupils, enter into a joint powers agreement; 
    (2) a joint powers board representing all participating 
districts is established under section 471.59 to govern the 
cooperative secondary facility; 
    (3) the planned secondary facility will result in the joint 
powers district meeting the requirements of Minnesota Rules, 
parts 3500.2010 and 3500.2110; 
    (4) at least 240 pupils would be served in grades 10 to 12, 
320 pupils would be served in grades 9 to 12, or 480 pupils 
would be served in grades 7 to 12; 
    (5) no more than one superintendent is employed by the 
joint powers board as a result of the cooperative secondary 
facility agreement; 
    (6) a statement of need is submitted, that may include 
reasons why the current secondary facilities are inadequate, 
unsafe or inaccessible to the handicapped; 
    (7) an educational plan is prepared, that includes input 
from both community and professional staff; 
    (8) a combined seniority list for all participating 
districts is developed by the joint powers board; 
    (9) an education program is developed that provides for 
more learning opportunities and course offerings for students 
than is currently available in any single member district; and 
    (10) a plan is developed for providing instruction of any 
resident students in other districts when distance to the 
secondary education facility makes attendance at the facility 
unreasonably difficult or impractical.  
    (b) To the extent possible, the joint powers board is 
encouraged to provide for severance pay or for early retirement 
incentives under section 125.611, for any teacher or 
administrator, as defined under section 125.12, subdivision 1, 
who is placed on unrequested leave as a result of the 
cooperative secondary facility agreement. 
    Subd. 3.  [DISTRICT PROCEDURES.] A joint powers board of a 
secondary district established under subdivision 2 that intends 
to apply for a grant shall adopt a resolution stating the 
proposed costs of the project, the purpose for which the debt is 
to be incurred, and an estimate of the dates when the facilities 
for which the grant is requested will be contracted for and 
completed.  Applications for the state grants must be 
accompanied by (a) a copy of the resolution, (b) a certificate 
by the clerk and treasurer of the joint powers board showing the 
current outstanding indebtedness of each member district, and 
(c) a certificate by the county auditor of each county in which 
a portion of the joint powers district lies showing the 
information in the auditor's official records that is required 
to be used in computing the debt limit of the district under 
section 475.53, subdivision 4.  The clerk's and treasurer's 
certificate shall show, as to each outstanding bond issue of 
each member district, the amount originally issued, the purpose 
for which issued, the date of issue, the amount remaining unpaid 
as of the date of the resolution, and the interest rates and due 
dates and amounts of principal thereon.  Applications and 
necessary data must be in the form prescribed by the 
commissioner and the rules of the state board of education.  
When an application is received, the commissioner shall obtain 
from the commissioner of revenue, and from the public utilities 
commission when required, the information in their official 
records that is required to be used in computing the debt limit 
of the joint powers district under section 475.53, subdivision 4.
    Subd. 4.  [AWARD OF GRANTS.] The commissioner shall examine 
and consider all applications for grants, and if any joint 
powers district is found not qualified, the commissioner shall 
promptly notify that joint powers board.  On January 1 and July 
1 of each year, the commissioner shall make a determination on 
all pending applications that have been on file with the 
commissioner more than one month.  If the applicants are 
determined to be qualified by the commissioner and the total 
amount of the grants applied for does not exceed the amount 
available or that can be made available in the incentive grant 
account, all grants so applied for shall be approved, subject to 
verification by the joint powers districts as specified in 
subdivision 6.  If the total amount of the applications exceeds 
the amount that is or can be made available, the commissioner 
shall allot the available amount among the qualified applicant 
districts, according to the commissioner's judgment and 
discretion based upon their respective needs.  The commissioner 
shall promptly certify to each qualified joint powers district 
the amount, if any, of the grant awarded to it. 
    Subd. 5.  [REFERENDUM; BOND ISSUE.] Within 90 days after 
being awarded a grant under subdivision 4, the joint powers 
board shall submit the question of authorizing the borrowing of 
funds for the secondary facility to the voters of the joint 
powers district at a special election, which may be held in 
conjunction with the annual election of the school board members 
of the member districts.  The question submitted shall state the 
total amount of funding needed from all sources.  A majority of 
those voting in the affirmative on the question is sufficient to 
authorize the joint powers board to issue the bonds on public 
sale in accordance with chapter 475.  The clerk of the joint 
powers board must certify the vote of the bond election to the 
commissioner of education.  If the bonds are authorized by the 
voters, the commissioner shall notify the county auditor of each 
county in which the joint powers district is located that the 
grant amount certified under subdivision 4 is available and 
appropriated for payment of principal and interest on the bonds 
issued under this subdivision, and the auditor shall reduce the 
joint powers district's debt service levies accordingly.  If a 
majority of those voting on the question do not vote in the 
affirmative, the grant must be canceled. 
    Subd. 6.  [CONTRACT.] Each grant must be evidenced by a 
contract between the joint powers board and the state acting 
through the commissioner.  It obligates the state to pay to the 
joint powers board an amount computed according to subdivision 
4, upon receipt by the commissioner of a certified resolution of 
the joint powers board verifying that contracts have been 
entered into for construction or remodeling of the facilities 
for which the grant is awarded and that bonds of the joint 
powers district have been issued and sold in the amount 
necessary to pay all project costs in excess of the amount of 
the grant, and estimating the costs.
