those paid to classified and

the executive, judicial, and 
legislative branches of state 
government, and to employees of the 
Minnesota historical society who are 
paid from state appropriations, if the 
increases are required by existing law 
or authorized by law during the 1987 
session of the legislature or by 
appropriate resolutions for employees 
of the legislature, or are given 
interim approval by the legislative 
commission on employee relations under 
Minnesota Statutes, sections 3.855 and

 The salary increases recommended by the

1986, for legislators, judges, and 
constitutional officers are modified, 
so that the rate of increase that goes 
into effect on January 1, 1989, and 
January 1, 1990, must be five percent 
each year. 
 The commissioner of finance shall 
transfer to the appropriations for 
agencies in the legislative and 
judicial branches and for the 
constitutional officers the amounts 
certified as necessary for each agency 
by its chief financial officer.  For

authorize aggregate performance 
increases for its managers that exceed 
an average of three percent in each 
year of the biennium ending June 30, 
1989.  A salary increase given in a 
lump sum is included within this 
limit.  If an agency has fewer than 
three managers, it may exceed this 
average by one percent. 
 By January 1, 1989, the commissioner of 
employee relations must assess 
managerial pay practices among the 
categories of agencies as grouped in 
Minnesota Statutes, section 15A.081, 
and among the metropolitan council and 
metropolitan commissions and boards.  
Managers within agencies of the 
executive branch not listed in section 
15A.081 must also be compared.  This 
assessment must be reported to the 
chairs of the committees of house 
appropriations, senate finance, and the 
legislative commission on employee 
relations. 
 The metropolitan council or a 
metropolitan commission or board may 
not authorize aggregate performance 
increases for its managers that exceed

sum is included within this limit.  If 
an agency has fewer than three 
managers, it may exceed this average by

a free copy of the proposed rule, as modified, is available upon 
request from the agency.  The rule and these materials shall be 
submitted to the attorney general within 180 days of the day

state.  The secretary of state shall forward one copy of each

direction, and needs of the state's computerization effort.  The 
task force expires and the terms, compensation, and removal of 
members are as provided in section 15.059.  
    Subdivision 1.  [ESTABLISHMENT AND PURPOSE.] An office of 
information systems management is created.  The office shall 
develop and establish a policy and standards for state agencies 
to follow for the development, purchase, and training for 
information systems.  The purpose of the office is to develop, 
promote, and coordinate a state technology, architecture, 
standards and guidelines, information needs analysis techniques, 
contracts for the purchase of equipment and services, and 
training of state agency personnel on these issues.  
    Subd. 2.  [RESPONSIBILITIES.] The office has the following 
duties: 
    (a) The office must develop and establish a state 
information architecture to ensure that further state agency 
development and purchase of information systems equipment and 
software is directed in such a manner that individual agency 
information systems complement and do not needlessly duplicate 
or needlessly conflict with the systems of other agencies.  The 
development of this information architecture must include the 
establishment of standards and guidelines to be followed by 
state agencies.  The commissioner of administration must 
establish interim standards and guidelines by August 1, 1987.  
The office must establish permanent standards and guidelines by 
July 1, 1988.  On January 1, 1988, and every six months 
thereafter, any state agency that has purchased information 
systems equipment or software in the past six months, or that is 
contemplating purchasing this equipment or software in the next 
six months, must report to the office and to the chairs of the 
house appropriations committee and the senate finance committee 
on how the purchases or proposed purchases comply with the 
applicable standards and guidelines.  
    (b) The office shall assist state agencies in the planning 
and management of information systems so that an individual 
information system reflects and supports the state agency's and 
the state's mission, requirements, and functions.  
    (c) Beginning July 1, 1988, the office must review and 
approve all agency requests for legislative appropriations for 
the development or purchase of information systems equipment or 
software.  Requests may not be included in the governor's budget 
submitted to the legislature, beginning with the budget 
submitted in January 1989, unless the office has approved the 
request. 
    (d) Each biennium the office must rank in order of priority 
agency requests for new appropriations for development or 
purchase of information systems equipment or software.  The 
office must submit this ranking to the legislature at the same 
time, or no later than 14 days after, the governor submits the 
budget message to the legislature. 
    (e) Beginning July 1, 1989, the office must define, review, 
and approve major purchases of information systems equipment to 
(1) ensure that the equipment follows the standards and 
guidelines of the state information architecture; (2) ensure 
that the equipment is consistent with the information management 
principles adopted by the information policy council; (3) 
evaluate whether or not the agency's proposed purchase reflects 
a cost-effective policy regarding volume purchasing; and (4) 
ensure the equipment is consistent with other systems in other 
state agencies so that data can be shared among agencies, unless 
the office determines that the agency purchasing the equipment 
has special needs justifying the inconsistency.  The 
commissioner of finance may not allot funds appropriated for 
major purchases of information systems equipment until the 
office reviews and approves the proposed purchase. 
    (f) The office shall review the operation of information 
systems by state agencies and provide advice and assistance so 
that these systems are operated efficiently and continually meet 
the standards and guidelines established by the office. 
    Subd. 3.  The office shall function as a division of the 
department of administration.  The commissioner of 
administration shall appoint an interim office director and 
other interim staff and provide the necessary administrative 
support to the office.  The employees and director shall serve 
in the unclassified service through June 30, 1988.  On July 1, 
1988, the employee positions established by this section, except 
the position of director, shall be placed in the classified 
service.  The position of director shall remain in the 
unclassified service. 
    Subd. 4.  [ADVISORY TASK FORCE.] The commissioner may must 
appoint a state information systems advisory task force to help 
the department develop and coordinate a state 
information services master plan architecture that is consistent 
with the information management direction developed by the 
information policy council, and make recommendations to the 
commissioner concerning the progress, direction, and needs of 
the state's computerization effort information systems.  The 
task force must include representatives of state agencies, the 
supreme court, higher education systems, librarians, and private 
industry.  The task force must also have two members of the 
house of representatives appointed by the speaker of the house 
and two members of the senate appointed by the senate committee 
on committees.  No more than one member from the house of 
representatives and one from the senate shall be chosen from the 
same political party.  The task force expires and the terms, 
compensation, and removal of nonlegislative members are as 
provided in section 15.059.

programs, systems, or technical services arising out of 
activities funded by current or prior state appropriations must 
be credited to an account in the special revenue fund and are

group continues to participate.  This participation is at the 
retiree's expense unless a collective bargaining agreement 
provides otherwise.  An employer shall notify an employee of 
this option no later than the effective date of retirement.  The 
retired employee shall notify the employer within 30 days of the 
effective date of retirement of intent to exercise this option.

(a) to (c) shall notify the eligible employer or former employer 
of intent to participate according to rules established by the

    The transaction of any acts, business or activities within 
the state of Minnesota by any officer, agent, representative, 
employee or member of any union or other groups or associations 
having officers, agents, members or property without the state 
on behalf of the union or other groups or associations or any of 
its members or affiliated local unions shall be deemed an 
appointment by the union or other groups or associations of the 
secretary of state of the state of Minnesota to be the true and

upon whom may be served all legal processes or notices in any 
action or proceeding against or involving the union or other 
groups or associations growing out of any acts, business or 
activities within the state of Minnesota resulting in damage or 
loss to person or property or giving rise to any cause of action 
under the laws of the state of Minnesota or to any matters or 
proceedings arising under the Minnesota Labor Relations Act. 
Such acts, business or activities shall be a signification of 
the agreement of the union or other groups or associations and 
its members that any process or notice in any action, matter or 
proceeding against or involving it, which is so served, shall be 
of the same legal force and validity as if served upon the union 
or other groups or associations and its members personally.  
Service of process or notice shall be made by filing a copy

registered office of the corporation within the state upon whom 
service can be made, of which fact the return of the sheriff of 
the county in which that office is located, or the affidavit of 
a private person not a party, that none can be found in that 
county shall be conclusive evidence, service of the summons upon 
it may be made by depositing two copies, together with a fee 
of $15 $25 with the secretary of state, which shall be deemed 
personal service upon the corporation.  One of the copies shall 
be filed by the secretary, and the other forthwith mailed by the 
secretary to the corporation by certified mail, if the place of 
its main office is known to the secretary or is disclosed by the

    Sec. 189.  Minnesota Statutes 1986, section 609.101, is 
amended to read:  
    609.101 [SURCHARGE ON FINES, ASSESSMENTS; MINIMUM FINES.] 
    Subdivision 1.  [SURCHARGES AND ASSESSMENTS.] When a court 
sentences a person convicted of a felony, gross misdemeanor, or 
misdemeanor, other than a petty misdemeanor such as a traffic or 
parking violation, and if the sentence does not include payment 
of a fine, the court shall impose an assessment of not less than 
$25 nor more than $50.  If the sentence for the felony, gross 
misdemeanor, or misdemeanor includes payment of a fine of any 
amount, including a fine of less than $100, the court shall 
impose a surcharge on the fine of ten percent of the fine.  This 
section applies whether or not the person is sentenced to 
imprisonment and when the sentence is suspended.  The court may, 
upon a showing of indigency or undue hardship upon the convicted 
person or the person's immediate family, not waive payment or 
authorize payment of the assessment or surcharge in installments 
unless it makes written findings on the record that the 
convicted person is indigent or that the assessment or surcharge 
would create undue hardship for the convicted person or that 
person's immediate family; however, if the court waives payment 
or authorizes payment in installments, it shall state in writing 
on the record the reasons for its action.  If the court fails to 
waive or impose an assessment required by this section, the 
court administrator shall correct the record to show imposition 
of an assessment of $25 if the sentence does not include payment 
of a fine, or if the sentence includes a fine, to show an 
imposition of a surcharge of 10 percent of the fine. 
    Except for assessments and surcharges imposed on persons 
convicted of violations described in section 97A.065, 
subdivision 2, the court shall collect and forward to the 
commissioner of finance the total amount of the assessment or 
surcharge and the commissioner shall credit all money so 
forwarded to a crime victim and witness account, which is 
established as a special account in the state treasury. 
    Money credited to the crime victim and witness account may 
be appropriated for but is not limited to the following purposes:
    (1) use for crime victim reparations under sections 611A.51 
to 611A.68; 
    (2) use by the crime victim and witness advisory council 
established under section 611A.71; and 
    (3) to supplement the federally funded activities of the 
crime victim ombudsman under section 611A.74.  
    If the convicted person is sentenced to imprisonment, the 
chief executive officer of the correctional facility in which 
the convicted person is incarcerated may collect the assessment 
or surcharge from any earnings the inmate accrues for work 
performed in the correctional facility and forward the amount to 
the commissioner of finance, indicating the part that was 
imposed for violations described in section 97A.065, subdivision 
2, which must be credited to the game and fish fund. 
    Subd. 2.  [MINIMUM FINES.] Notwithstanding any other law:  
    (1) when a court sentences a person convicted of violating 
section 609.221, 609.267, or 609.342, it must impose a fine of 
not less than $500 nor more than the maximum fine authorized by 
law; 
    (2) when a court sentences a person convicted of violating 
section 609.222, 609.223, 609.2671, 609.343, 609.344, or 
609.345, it must impose a fine of not less than $300 nor more 
than the maximum fine authorized by law; and 
    (3) when a court sentences a person convicted of violating 
section 609.2231, 609.224, or 609.2672, it must impose a fine of 
not less than $100 nor more than the maximum fine authorized by 
law.  
    The court may not waive payment of the fine or authorize 
payment of it in installments unless the court makes written 
findings on the record that the convicted person is indigent or 
that the fine would create undue hardship for the convicted 
person or that person's immediate family. 
    The court shall collect the minimum fine mandated by this 
subdivision and forward 70 percent of it to a local victim 
assistance program that provides services locally in the county 
in which the crime was committed.  The court shall forward the 
remaining 30 percent to the commissioner of finance to be 
credited to the crime victim and witness account established in 
subdivision 1.  If more than one victim assistance program 
serves the county in which the crime was committed, the court 
may designate on a case-by-case basis which program will receive 
the fine proceeds, giving consideration to the nature of the 
crime committed, the types of victims served by the program, and 
the funding needs of the program.  If no victim assistance 
program serves that county, the court shall forward 100 percent 
of the fine proceeds to the commissioner of finance to be 
credited to the crime victim and witness account.  Fine proceeds 
received by a local victim assistance program must be used to 
provide direct services to crime victims.  Fine proceeds 
credited to the crime victim and witness account may be 
appropriated to the crime victim and witness advisory council, 
and the council may use all or part of the proceeds for the 
purpose of providing grants to establish new victim assistance 
programs. 
    The minimum fine required by this subdivision is in 
addition to the surcharge or assessment required by subdivision 
1, and is in addition to any term of imprisonment or restitution 
imposed or ordered by the court. 
    As used in this subdivision, "victim assistance program" 
means victim witness programs within county attorney offices or 
any of the following programs approved by the department of 
corrections:  crime victim crisis centers, victim-witness 
programs, battered women shelters and nonshelter programs, and 
sexual assault programs. 
    Sec. 190. Minnesota Statutes 1986, section 626.861, 
subdivision 4, is amended to read:  
    Subd. 4.  [PEACE OFFICERS TRAINING ACCOUNT.] Receipts from 
penalty assessments must be credited to a peace officers 
training account in the special revenue fund.  Money credited to 
the peace officers training account may be appropriated for but 
not limited to the following purposes, among others: 
    (a) Up to ten percent may be provided for reimbursement to 
board approved skills courses in proportion to the number of 
students successfully completing the board's skills licensing 
examination. 
    (b) Assessments related to violations described in section 
97.49, subdivision 5, are appropriated to provide peace officer 
training for persons employed by the commissioner of natural 
resources who are licensed under section 626.84, subdivision 1, 
clause (c), and who possess peace officer authority for the 
purpose of enforcing game and fish laws.  
    (c) The balance may be used to pay each local unit of 
government an amount in proportion to the number of licensed 
peace officers and constables employed, at a rate to be 
determined by the board.  The disbursed amount must be used 
exclusively for reimbursement of the cost of in-service training 
required under this chapter and chapter 214.
