           An act relating to the administration of state 
          property; extending the period for which the 
          commissioner of administration may lease state

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1986, section 16B.24, 
subdivision 5, is amended to read:  
    Subd. 5.  [RENTING OUT STATE PROPERTY.] (a) [ AUTHORITY.] 
The commissioner may rent out state property, real or personal, 
that is not needed for public use, if the rental is not 
otherwise provided for or prohibited by law.  The property may 
not be rented out for more than two five years at a time without 
the approval of the state executive council, and may never be 
rented out for more than 25 years.  
    (b) [RESTRICTIONS.] Paragraph (a) does not apply to state 
trust fund lands, other state lands under the jurisdiction of 
the department of natural resources, lands forfeited for 
delinquent taxes, lands acquired under section 298.22, or lands 
acquired under section 41.56 which are under the jurisdiction of 
the department of agriculture.  
    (c) [FORT SNELLING CHAPEL; RENTAL.] The Fort Snelling 
Chapel, located within the boundaries of Fort Snelling State 
Park, is available for use only on payment of a rental fee.  The 
commissioner shall establish rental fees for both public and 
private use.  The rental fee for private use by an organization 
or individual must reflect the reasonable value of equivalent 
rental space.  Rental fees collected under this section must be 
deposited in the general fund.  
     (d) [RENTAL OF LIVING ACCOMMODATIONS.] The commissioner 
shall establish rental rates for all living accommodations 
provided by the state for its employees.  Money collected as 
rent by state agencies pursuant to this paragraph must be 
deposited in the state treasury and credited to the general fund.
     (e) [LEASE OF SPACE IN CERTAIN STATE BUILDINGS TO STATE 
AGENCIES.] The commissioner may lease portions of the state 
owned buildings in the capitol complex, the capitol square 
building, the health building, and the building at 1246 
University Avenue, St. Paul, Minnesota, to state agencies and 
charge rent on the basis of space occupied.  Notwithstanding any 
law to the contrary, all money collected as rent pursuant to the 
terms of this section shall be deposited in the state treasury. 
Money collected as rent to recover the depreciation cost of a 
building built with state dedicated funds shall be credited to 
the dedicated fund which funded the original acquisition or 
construction.  All other money received shall be credited to the 
general services revolving fund.  
    Sec. 2.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.] 
    This act is effective the day following final enactment.
