part-time, and seasonal dollars requested.  Any change level 
request submitted to the legislature for consideration by the 
governor as part of the governor's biennial budget containing 
funding for salaries shall indicate the number of additional 
full-time equivalent positions and salary dollars requested. 
    Within the full-time equivalent number and amount of salary 
dollars appropriated for the department, the commissioner shall 
have the authority to establish as many full-time, part-time, or 
seasonal positions as required to accomplish the assigned 
responsibilities for the department.  The commissioner shall 
have the authority to reallocate salary dollars for other 
operating expenses, but the commissioner shall not have 
authority to reallocate other operating funds to increase the 
total amount appropriated for salary-related expenses, including 
salary supplement, without receiving prior approval according to 
the process defined in this subdivision. 
    In the event that the commissioner finds it necessary to 
exceed the full-time equivalent number or the amount of 
appropriated dollars and the legislature is not in session, the 
commissioner shall seek approval of the legislative advisory 
commission under subdivision 4.  Legislative advisory commission 
approved full-time equivalent positions and dollars shall not 
become a part of the agency budget base unless authorized by the 
legislature.

subdivision 1, is amended to read:  
    Subdivision 1.  [CREDIT UNION; ORGANIZATION; COMPANY 
PAYROLL DIRECT DEPOSIT AND DEDUCTIONS.] An agency head may, with 
in the executive, judicial, and legislative branch may, upon the 
written request of signed by an employee, directly deposit all 
or part of an employee's pay in any credit union or financial 
institution, as defined in section 47.015, designated by the 
employee.  An agency head may, upon written request of an 
employee, deduct from the pay of the employee a requested amount 
to be paid to any state employees' credit union, or the 
Minnesota benefit association, or to any organization 
contemplated by section 179A.06, of which the employee is a 
member, or to a company that has contracted to insure the 
employee for the medical costs of cancer or intensive care.  If 
an employee is a member of or has accounts with more than one 
such credit union or financial institution or more than one such 
organization under section 179A.06, or is insured by more than 
one company, only one credit union or financial institution and 
one organization and one company may be paid money by direct 
deposit or by payroll deduction from the employee's pay.  No 
deduction may be made from the salary of an employee for payment 
to a credit union or organization or company unless 100 
employees request deductions for payment to the credit union or 
organization or company.  The 100 employee minimum does not 
apply to credit unions and organizations which received 
authorized payroll deduction payments on June 5, 1971.  
    Sec. 62.  Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 16B.24, 
subdivision 6, is amended to read:  
    Subd. 6.  [PROPERTY RENTAL.] (a)  [LEASES.] The 
commissioner shall rent land and other premises when necessary 
for state purposes.  The commissioner may lease land or premises 
for five years or less, subject to cancellation upon 30 days 
written notice by the state for any reason except rental of 
other land or premises for the same use.  The commissioner may 
not rent non-state-owned land and buildings or substantial 
portions of land or buildings within the capitol area as defined 
in section 15.50 unless the commissioner first consults with the 
capitol area architectural and planning board.  If the 
commissioner enters into a lease-purchase agreement for 
buildings or substantial portions of buildings within the 
capitol area, the commissioner shall require that any new 
construction of non-state-owned buildings conform to design 
guidelines of the capitol area architectural and planning 
board.  Lands needed by the department of transportation for 
storage of vehicles or road materials may be rented for five 
years or less, such leases for terms over two years being 
subject to cancellation upon 30 days written notice by the state 
for any reason except rental of other land or premises for the 
same use.  
    (b)  [USE VACANT PUBLIC SPACE.] No agency may initiate or 
renew a lease for space for its own use in a private building 
unless the commissioner has thoroughly investigated presently 
vacant space in public buildings, such as closed school 
buildings, and found that none is available.  
    (c)  [PREFERENCE FOR CERTAIN BUILDINGS.] For needs beyond 
those which can be accommodated in state-owned buildings, the 
commissioner shall acquire and utilize space in suitable 
buildings of historical, architectural, or cultural significance 
for the purposes of this subdivision unless use of that space is 
not feasible, prudent and cost effective compared with available 
alternatives.  Buildings are of historical, architectural, or 
cultural significance if they are listed on the national 
register of historic places, designated by a state or county 
historical society, or designated by a municipal preservation 
commission.  
    (d)  [RECYCLING SPACE.] Leases for space of 30 days or more 
for 5,000 square feet or more must require that space be 
provided for recyclable materials.  
    Sec. 63.  Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 16B.41, 
subdivision 2, is amended to read: 
    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.  In 
those instances where state agencies have need for the same or 
similar computer data, the commissioner shall ensure that the 
most efficient and cost-effective method of producing and 
storing data for or sharing data between those agencies is 
used.  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. 
    Sec. 64.  [16B.465] [STATEWIDE TELECOMMUNICATIONS ACCESS 
ROUTING SYSTEM.] 
    Subdivision 1.  [CREATION.] The statewide 
telecommunications access routing system provides voice, data, 
video, and other telecommunications transmission services to 
state agencies, educational institutions, public corporations, 
and state political subdivisions.  It is not a telephone company 
for purposes of chapter 237.  It shall not resell or sublease 
any services or facilities to nonpublic entities.  The 
commissioner has the responsibility for planning, development, 
and operations of a statewide telecommunications access routing 
system in order to provide cost-effective telecommunications 
transmission services to system users. 
    Subd. 2.  [ADVISORY COUNCIL.] The statewide 
telecommunications access routing system is managed by the 
commissioner.  Subject to section 15.059, subdivisions 1 to 4, 
the commissioner shall appoint an advisory council to provide 
assistance in implementing a statewide telecommunications access 
routing system.  The council consists of: 
    (1) one member appointed by the higher education advisory 
council established by section 136A.02, subdivision 6; 
    (2) the system heads, or their designees, of the University 
of Minnesota, the state university system, the community 
colleges system, and the board of vocational technical 
education; and 
    (3) five members appointed by the governor or the 
governor's designee or designees, four of whom must be agency 
heads or their designees or representatives of political 
subdivisions. 
    No member of the advisory council may be a vendor of 
telecommunications equipment or services or an employee or 
representative of a vendor. 
    Subd. 3.  [DUTIES.] The commissioner, after consultation 
with the council, shall: 
    (1) provide voice, data, video, and other 
telecommunications transmission services to the state and to 
political subdivisions through the statewide telecommunications 
access routing system revolving fund; 
    (2) appoint a chief executive officer of the system to 
serve in the unclassified service; 
    (3) manage vendor relationships, network function, and 
capacity planning in order to be responsive to the needs of the 
system users; 
    (4) set rates and fees for services; 
    (5) approve contracts relating to the system; 
    (6) develop the system plan, including plans for the 
phasing of its implementation and maintenance of the initial 
system, and the annual program and fiscal plans for the system; 
and 
    (7) develop a plan for interconnection of the network with 
private colleges in the state. 
    Subd. 4.  [PROGRAM PARTICIPATION.] The commissioner may 
require the participation of state agencies and the governing 
boards of the state universities, the community colleges, and 
the technical institutes, and may request the participation of 
the board of regents of the University of Minnesota, in the 
planning and implementation of the network to provide 
interconnective technologies.  The commissioner shall establish 
reimbursement rates in cooperation with the commissioner of 
finance to be billed to participating agencies and educational 
institutions sufficient to cover the operating, maintenance, and 
administrative costs of the system. 
    Subd. 5.  [RULES.] The commissioner shall adopt rules for 
the operation of this program.  The rules must require 
participation of state agencies in the network to provide 
interconnective technologies.  The rules may require the 
participation of the governing boards of the state universities, 
the community colleges, and the technical institutes, and may 
request the participation of the board of regents of the 
University of Minnesota, in the planning of the program.  The 
commissioner shall establish reimbursement rates in cooperation 
with the commissioner of the department of finance to be billed 
to participating agencies and educational institutions 
sufficient to cover the operating, maintenance, and 
administrative costs of the system. 
    Subd. 6.  [REVOLVING ACCOUNT.] The statewide 
telecommunications access routing system revolving account is a 
separate account for the department of administration in the 
state treasury for the receipt of and payment of funds for the 
statewide telecommunications access routing system established 
in subdivision 1.  Money appropriated to the account and fees 
for communications services provided by the statewide 
telecommunications access routing system must be deposited in 
the account.  Money in the account is appropriated annually to 
the commissioner to operate the statewide telecommunications 
access routing system. 
    Subd. 7.  [EXEMPTION.] The system is exempt from the 
five-year limitation on contracts set by section 16B.07, 
subdivision 2. 
    Sec. 65.  Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 16B.61, 
subdivision 5, is amended to read:  
    Subd. 5.  [ACCESSIBILITY.] (a) [PUBLIC BUILDINGS.] The code 
must provide for making public buildings constructed or 
remodeled after July 1, 1963, accessible to and usable by 
physically handicapped persons, although this does not require 
the remodeling of public buildings solely to provide 
accessibility and usability to the physically handicapped when 
remodeling would not otherwise be undertaken.  
    (b) [LEASED SPACE.] No agency of the state may lease space 
for agency operations in a non-state-owned building unless the 
building satisfies the requirements of the state building code 
for accessibility by the physically handicapped, or is eligible 
to display the state symbol of accessibility.  This limitation 
applies to leases of 30 days or more for space of at least 1,000 
square feet.  
     (c) [MEETINGS OR CONFERENCES.] Meetings or conferences for 
the public or for state employees which are sponsored in whole 
or in part by a state agency must be held in buildings that meet 
the state building code requirements relating to accessibility 
for physically handicapped persons.  This subdivision does not 
apply to any classes, seminars, or training programs offered by 
a state university, the University of Minnesota, or a state 
community college.  Meetings or conferences intended for 
specific individuals none of whom need the accessibility 
features for handicapped persons specified in the state building 
code need not comply with this subdivision unless a handicapped 
person gives reasonable advance notice of an intent to attend 
the meeting or conference.  When sign language interpreters will 
be provided, meetings or conference sites must be chosen which 
allow hearing impaired participants to see their signing clearly.
     (d) [EXEMPTIONS.] The commissioner may grant an exemption 
from the requirements of paragraphs (b) and (c) in advance if an 
agency has demonstrated that reasonable efforts were made to 
secure facilities which complied with those requirements and if 
the selected facilities are the best available for access for 
handicapped persons.  Exemptions shall be granted using criteria 
developed by the commissioner in consultation with the council 
on disability.  
    (e) [SYMBOL INDICATING ACCESS.] The wheelchair symbol 
adopted by Rehabilitation International's Eleventh World 
Congress is the state symbol indicating buildings, facilities, 
and grounds which are accessible to and usable by handicapped 
persons.  In the interests of uniformity, this symbol in its 
white on blue format is the sole symbol for display in or on all 
public or private buildings, facilities, and grounds which 
qualify for its use.  The secretary of state shall obtain the 
symbol and keep it on file.  No building, facility, or grounds 
may display the symbol unless it is in compliance with the rules 
adopted by the commissioner under subdivision 1.  Before any 
rules are proposed for adoption under this paragraph, the 
commissioner shall consult with the council on disability.  
Rules adopted under this paragraph must be enforced in the same 
way as other accessibility rules of the state building code.  
    (f) [MUNICIPAL ENFORCEMENT.] Municipalities which have not 
adopted the state building code may enforce the building code 
requirements for handicapped persons by either entering into a 
joint powers agreement for enforcement with another municipality 
which has adopted the state building code; or contracting for 
enforcement with an individual certified under section 16B.65, 
subdivision 3, to enforce the state building code.  
    (g) [EQUIPMENT ALLOWED.] The code must allow the use of 
vertical wheelchair lifts and inclined stairway wheelchair lifts 
in public buildings.  An inclined stairway wheelchair lift must 
be equipped with light or sound signaling device for use during 
operation of the lift.  The stairway or ramp shall be marked in 
a bright color that clearly indicates the outside edge of the 
lift when in operation.  The code shall not require a guardrail 
between the lift and the stairway or ramp.  Compliance with this 
provision by itself does not mean other handicap accessibility 
requirements have been met. 
    Sec. 66.  Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 84.025, is 
amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
    Subd. 9.  [PROFESSIONAL SERVICES SUPPORT ACCOUNT.] The 
commissioner of natural resources may bill the various programs 
carried out by the commissioner for the costs of providing them 
with professional support services.  Receipts must be credited 
to a special account in the state treasury and are appropriated 
to the commissioner to pay the costs for which the billings were 
made.  
   The commissioner of natural resources shall submit to the 
commissioner of finance before the start of each fiscal year a 
work plan showing the estimated work to be done during the 
coming year, the estimated cost of doing the work, and the 
positions and fees that will be necessary.  This account is 
exempted from statewide and agency indirect cost payments. 
    Sec. 67.  Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 84.0272, is 
amended to read: 
    84.0272 [PROCEDURE IN ACQUIRING LANDS.] 
    When the commissioner of natural resources is authorized to 
acquire lands or interests in lands the procedure set forth in 
this section shall apply.  The commissioner of natural resources 
shall first prepare a fact sheet showing the lands to be 
acquired, the legal authority for their acquisition, and the 
qualities of the land that make it a desirable acquisition.  The 
commissioner of natural resources shall cause the lands to be 
appraised.  An appraiser shall before entering upon the duties 
of office take and subscribe an oath to faithfully and 
impartially discharge the duties as appraiser according to the 
best of the appraiser's ability and that the appraiser is not 
interested directly or indirectly in any of the lands to be 
appraised or the timber or improvements thereon or in the sale 
thereof and has entered into no agreement or combination to 
purchase the same or any part thereof, which oath shall be 
attached to the report of the appraisal.  The commissioner of 
natural resources may pay less than the appraised value, but 
shall not agree to pay more than ten percent above the appraised 
value, except that if the commissioner pays less than the 
appraised value for a parcel of land, the difference between the 
purchase price and the appraised value may be used to apply to 
purchases at more than the appraised value.  The sum of 
accumulated differences between appraised amounts and purchases 
for more than the appraised amount may not exceed the sum of 
accumulated differences between appraised amounts and purchases 
for less than the appraised amount.  New appraisals may be made 
at the discretion of the commissioner of natural resources. 
    Sec. 68.  Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 84.0274, is 
amended by adding a subdivision to read:

ACQUISITIONS.] When the commissioner of natural resources 
acquires abandoned railroad right-of-way from a railroad, 
railroad holding company, or similar entity, any or all of the 
provisions of this section may be waived by mutual agreement of 
the commissioner and the landowner.

result in the displacement of currently employed workers or 
workers on seasonal layoff or layoff from a substantially 
equivalent position, including partial displacement such as 
reduction in hours of nonovertime work, wages, or other 
employment benefits.  Supervising agencies that participate in 
the program may not terminate, lay off, reduce the seasonal 
hours, or reduce the working hours of any employee for the 
purpose of using a corps member with available funds.  The 
positions and job duties of persons employed in projects shall 
be submitted to affected exclusive representatives prior to 
actual assignment. 
    Subd. 8.  [EXPENDITURE OF CORPS FUNDS.] The commissioner

    (b) To investigate the extent, character, and effect of the 
pollution of the waters of this state and to gather data and 
information necessary or desirable in the administration or 
enforcement of pollution laws, and to make such classification 
of the waters of the state as it may deem advisable; 
    (c) To establish and alter such reasonable pollution 
standards for any waters of the state in relation to the public 
use to which they are or may be put as it shall deem necessary 
for the purposes of this chapter and, with respect to the 
pollution of waters of the state, chapter 116; 
    (d) To encourage waste treatment, including advanced waste 
treatment, instead of stream low-flow augmentation for dilution 
purposes to control and prevent pollution;

installation or operation of disposal systems or parts thereof, 
or for other equipment and facilities; 
    (1) Requiring the discontinuance of the discharge of 
sewage, industrial waste or other wastes into any waters of the 
state resulting in pollution in excess of the applicable 
pollution standard established under this chapter; 
    (2) Prohibiting or directing the abatement of any discharge 
of sewage, industrial waste, or other wastes, into any waters of 
the state or the deposit thereof or the discharge into any 
municipal disposal system where the same is likely to get into 
any waters of the state in violation of this chapter and, with 
respect to the pollution of waters of the state, chapter 116, or 
standards or rules promulgated or permits issued pursuant 
thereto, and specifying the schedule of compliance within which 
such prohibition or abatement must be accomplished; 
    (3) Prohibiting the storage of any liquid or solid 
substance or other pollutant in a manner which does not 
reasonably assure proper retention against entry into any waters 
of the state that would be likely to pollute any waters of the 
state; 
    (4) Requiring the construction, installation, maintenance, 
and operation by any person of any disposal system or any part 
thereof, or other equipment and facilities, or the 
reconstruction, alteration, or enlargement of its existing

remedial measures to prevent, control or abate any discharge or 
deposit of sewage, industrial waste or other wastes by any 
person; 
    (5) Establishing, and from time to time revising, standards 
of performance for new sources taking into consideration, among 
other things, classes, types, sizes, and categories of sources, 
processes, pollution control technology, cost of achieving such 
effluent reduction, and any nonwater quality environmental 
impact and energy requirements.  Said standards of performance 
for new sources shall encompass those standards for the control 
of the discharge of pollutants which reflect the greatest degree 
of effluent reduction which the agency determines to be 
achievable through application of the best available 
demonstrated control technology, processes, operating methods, 
or other alternatives, including, where practicable, a standard 
permitting no discharge of pollutants.  New sources shall 
encompass buildings, structures, facilities, or installations 
from which there is or may be the discharge of pollutants, the 
construction of which is commenced after the publication by the 
agency of proposed rules prescribing a standard of performance 
which will be applicable to such source.  Notwithstanding any 
other provision of the law of this state, any point source the 
construction of which is commenced after May 20, 1973 and which 
is so constructed as to meet all applicable standards of 
performance for new sources shall, consistent with and subject 
to the provisions of section 306(d) of the Amendments of 1972 to 
the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, not be subject to any 
more stringent standard of performance for new sources during a

including contractual obligations to purchase such facilities or 
equipment, at the premises where such equipment will be used, 
including preparation work at such premises; 
    (6) Establishing and revising pretreatment standards to 
prevent or abate the discharge of any pollutant into any 
publicly owned disposal system, which pollutant interferes with, 
passes through, or otherwise is incompatible with such disposal 
system; 
    (7) Requiring the owner or operator of any disposal system 
or any point source to establish and maintain such records, make 
such reports, install, use, and maintain such monitoring 
equipment or methods, including where appropriate biological 
monitoring methods, sample such effluents in accordance with 
such methods, at such locations, at such intervals, and in such 
a manner as the agency shall prescribe, and providing such other 
information as the agency may reasonably require; 
    (8) Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, 
and with respect to the pollution of waters of the state,

limitations than otherwise imposed by effluent limitations in 
order to meet any applicable water quality standard by 
establishing new effluent limitations, based upon section 
115.01, subdivision 5, clause (b), including alternative 
effluent control strategies for any point source or group of 
point sources to insure the integrity of water quality 
classifications, whenever the agency determines that discharges 
of pollutants from such point source or sources, with the 
application of effluent limitations required to comply with any 
standard of best available technology, would interfere with the 
attainment or maintenance of the water quality classification in 
a specific portion of the waters of the state.  Prior to 
establishment of any such effluent limitation, the agency shall 
hold a public hearing to determine the relationship of the 
economic and social costs of achieving such limitation or 
limitations, including any economic or social dislocation in the 
affected community or communities, to the social and economic 
benefits to be obtained and to determine whether or not such 
effluent limitation can be implemented with available technology 
or other alternative control strategies.  If a person affected 
by such limitation demonstrates at such hearing that, whether or 
not such technology or other alternative control strategies are 
available, there is no reasonable relationship between the 
economic and social costs and the benefits to be obtained, such 
limitation shall not become effective and shall be adjusted as 
it applies to such person; 
    (9) Modifying, in its discretion, any requirement or 
limitation based upon best available technology with respect to 
any point source for which a permit application is filed after 
July 1, 1977 upon a showing by the owner or operator of such 
point source satisfactory to the agency that such modified 
requirements will represent the maximum use of technology within 
the economic capability of the owner or operator and will result 
in reasonable further progress toward the elimination of the 
discharge of pollutants; 
    (f) To require to be submitted and to approve plans and 
specifications for disposal systems or point sources, or any 
part thereof and to inspect the construction thereof for 
compliance with the approved plans and specifications thereof; 
    (g) To prescribe and alter rules, not inconsistent with 
law, for the conduct of the agency and other matters within the 
scope of the powers granted to and imposed upon it by this 
chapter and, with respect to pollution of waters of the state, 
in chapter 116, provided that every rule affecting any other 
department or agency of the state or any person other than a 
member or employee of the agency shall be filed with the 
secretary of state; 
    (h) To conduct such investigations, issue such notices, 
public and otherwise, and hold such hearings as are necessary or 
which it may deem advisable for the discharge of its duties 
under this chapter and, with respect to the pollution of waters 
of the state, under chapter 116, including, but not limited to, 
the issuance of permits, and to authorize any member, employee, 
or agent appointed by it to conduct such investigations or, 
issue such notices and hold such hearings;

    Subd. 2.  [INTERESTS OF COMMISSIONER.] Except upon the

section 153, the commissioner has no legal or equitable interest 
in any collateral, security, or other right of recovery in 
connection with any loan enrolled in the program, and the 
commissioner's consent is not necessary for any amendment to the

foster economic development in Minnesota. 
    Subd. 3.  [LOAN PROVISIONS.] An eligible loan may provide 
for an interest rate, fees, and other terms and conditions as 
the lender and borrower may agree.  If the loan amount to be 
borrowed is determined by a commitment agreement that 
establishes a line of credit, the amount of the loan is the 
maximum amount available to the borrower under the agreement. 
    Sec. 150.  [116J.8764] [ENROLLMENT OF LOANS IN PROGRAM.] 
    Subdivision 1.  [FILING REQUIREMENTS.] (a) To enroll a loan 
under this program, the lender must file a completed loan 
enrollment form with the commissioner.  The lender must also 
certify the following to the commissioner as part of the filing: 
    (1) the lender has no substantial reason to believe that 
the loan is being made to a borrower who does not meet the 
requirements of section 146, subdivision 3; 
    (2) that the lender has received from the borrower a 
written representation, warranty, pledge, and waiver stating 
that the borrower has no legal, beneficial, or equitable 
interest in the nonrefundable premium charges or any other funds 
credited to the reserve fund established to cover losses 
sustained by the lender on enrolled loans; 
    (3) the loan being filed for enrollment is an eligible loan 
under section 149; and 
    (4) premium changes required of the borrower and lender 
under this section have been deposited in the reserve fund. 
    (b) The lender shall file the loan enrollment form within 
ten business days after the lender makes the loan.  The date on 
which the lender makes a loan is the date on which the lender 
first disburses proceeds of the loan to the borrower or an 
earlier date on which the loan documents have been executed and 
the lender has obligated itself to disburse proceeds of the loan.
The filing date of a loan enrollment form is the date on which 
the lender delivers the required documentation to the 
commissioner, delivers it to a professional courier service for 
delivery to the commissioner, or mails it to the commissioner by 
certified mail. 
    Subd. 2.  [COMMISSIONER ENROLLMENT; ACKNOWLEDGMENT.] When 
the commissioner receives the loan enrollment form, the 
commissioner shall enroll the loan, unless the information 
provided under subdivision 1 indicates that the loan is not an 
eligible loan, and shall deliver to the lender within five 
business days of receipt an acknowledgment of enrollment, signed 
by the commissioner or designee, including documentation of the 
amount being transferred by the commissioner into the reserve 
fund under this section. 
    Subd. 3.  [AMOUNT COVERED.] When filing a loan enrollment 
form, the lender may specify an amount to be covered under the 
program.  The amount may be less than the total amount of the 
loan.  Unless the context clearly requires otherwise, when used 
in connection with a loan or loans, the words "amount" and 
"proceeds" refer only to the amount covered under the agreement. 
    Subd. 4.  [AMOUNT COVERED IN REFINANCINGS.] (a) In the case 
of a loan to refinance a loan previously made to the borrower by 
the lender that was not enrolled under the program, the lender 
may obtain coverage under the program for an amount not 
exceeding the amount of additional financing. 
    (b) If an enrolled loan is refinanced and the total amount 
to be covered under the program does not exceed the covered 
amount of the loan as previously enrolled, the refinanced loan 
may continue as an enrolled loan without payment of additional 
premium charges or transfers by the commissioner to the reserve 
fund. 
    (c) If an enrolled loan is refinanced in an amount 
exceeding the amount of the loan as previously enrolled, the 
lender may obtain coverage of the amount of the refinanced loan 
that exceeds the amount covered when the loan was previously 
enrolled by refiling the loan for enrollment under subdivision 1.
    (d) Fluctuations in the outstanding balance of a line of 
credit, without increasing the enrolled amount under the 
program, are not a refinancing of the loan. 
    Subd. 5.  [TERMINATION OF ENROLLMENT.] If the outstanding 
balance of an enrolled loan which is not a line of credit is 
reduced to zero, the loan is no longer an enrolled loan.  If an 
enrolled loan which is a line of credit has an outstanding 
balance of zero for a 12-month period, the line of credit is no 
longer an enrolled loan, unless, before the expiration of the 
12-month period, the lender reaffirms in writing to the borrower 
that the line of credit will remain open and the borrower 
acknowledges the reaffirmation in writing. 
    Sec. 151.  [116J.8765] [RESERVE FUND; PREMIUMS.] 
    Subdivision 1.  [CREATION.] Upon execution of an agreement 
between the lender and the commissioner, the commissioner shall 
establish a reserve fund account with the lender in the name of 
the commissioner for the purpose of receiving all required 
premium charges to be paid by the lender and the borrower and 
transfers made by the commissioner under sections 146 to 155.  
    Subd. 2.  [PREMIUM PAYMENTS AND TRANSFERS TO RESERVE FUND.] 
The premium charges payable to the reserve fund by the lender 
and the borrower in connection with a loan filed for enrollment 
are determined by the lender.  The premium paid by the borrower 
may not be less than 1.5 percent nor greater than 3.5 percent of 
the amount of the loan.  The premium paid by the lender shall be 
equal to the amount of the premium paid by the borrower.  The 
lender may recover from the borrower the cost of the lender's 
premium payment, in any manner in which the lender and borrower 
agree.  When enrolling a loan, the commissioner shall transfer 
into the reserve fund from the account premium amounts 
determined as follows: 
    (a) If the amount of any loan, plus the amount of loans 
previously enrolled by the lender, is less than $2,000,000, the 
premium amount transferred must be equal to 150 percent of the 
combined premiums paid into the reserve fund by the borrower and 
the lender for each enrolled loan. 
    (b) If, prior to the enrollment of the loan, the amount of 
loans previously enrolled by the lender equals or exceeds 
$2,000,000, the premium amount transferred must be equal to the 
combined premiums paid into the reserve fund by the borrower and 
the lender for each enrolled loan. 
    (c) If the amount of loans previously enrolled by the 
lender is less than $2,000,000, but the enrollment of a loan 
will cause the aggregate amount of all enrolled loans made by 
the lender to exceed $2,000,000, the premium amount transferred 
must be equal to a percentage of the combined amount paid by the 
lender and the borrower.  The percentage must be determined by 
(1) multiplying by 150 that portion of the loan which when added 
to the amount of all previously enrolled loans totals 
$2,000,000, (2) multiplying the balance of the loan by 100, and 
(3) adding the products of the two amounts and dividing the sum 
by the total amount of the loan. 
    Subd. 3.  [LIMITATION OF TRANSFERS.] A maximum premium 
amount of $150,000 may be transferred into the reserve funds of 
all lenders participating in the program by the commissioner 
over any three-year period in connection with any one borrower 
or any group of borrowers among which a common enterprise 
exists.  This maximum premium amount may be exceeded upon the 
written request by a lender only if the commissioner approves in 
writing the transfer of an amount in excess of $150,000.  For 
the purpose of this subdivision, the term "common enterprise" 
has the meaning given it in Code of Federal Regulations, title 
12, section 32, as amended. 
    Subd. 4.  [CONTROL AND INVESTMENT OF RESERVE FUND.] (a) All 
money credited to the reserve fund is under the exclusive 
control of the commissioner.  The commissioner may not withdraw 
money from the reserve fund except as specifically provided in 
this subdivision and sections 152 and 154. 
    (b) Money in the reserve fund must be deposited by the 
commissioner in an account with the lender unless the 
commissioner determines that the lender is not in substantial 
compliance with the requirements of the agreement.  If money in 
the reserve fund is not deposited by the commissioner in an 
account with the lender, it must be invested or reinvested by 
the commissioner in (1) direct obligations of the United States 
or the state of Minnesota or in obligations the principal and 
interest of which are unconditionally guaranteed by the United 
States or the state of Minnesota, or (2) a deposit account at a 
depository institution whose deposits are insured by the Federal 
Deposit Insurance Corporation or the Federal Savings and Loan 
Insurance Corporation. 
    (c) Interest or income earned on the money credited to the 
reserve fund is part of the reserve fund.  The commissioner may 
withdraw at any time from the reserve fund 50 percent of all 
interest or income that has been credited to the reserve fund, 
except that after the first withdrawal the commissioner may not 
withdraw more than 50 percent of all interest or income that has 
been credited to the reserve fund since the time of the last 
withdrawal.  Any withdrawal made under this subdivision may be 
made prior to paying any claim.  None of the amounts withdrawn 
need to be transferred back to the reserve fund.  Any withdrawal 
under this subdivision must be credited in the capital access 
account. 
    Subd. 5.  [PLEDGE OF THE RESERVE FUND.] The commissioner 
shall pledge to the lender that the money in the reserve fund 
will be available to pay claims under section 152, that the 
lender will have a first security interest in the money in the 
reserve fund to pay the claims, and that the commissioner will 
not encumber or pledge the money to any other party.  
    Subd. 6.  [QUARTERLY REPORTS; INSPECTIONS.] (a) If the 
reserve fund is not maintained with the lender, the commissioner 
shall provide to the lender quarterly transaction reports 
indicating the balance in the reserve fund, payments and 
transfers into the reserve fund, withdrawals from the reserve 
fund, and interest or income earned on money credited to the 
reserve fund. 
    (b) The records of the commissioner with respect to all 
payments and transfers into the reserve fund, withdrawals from 
the reserve fund, and interest or income earned on the money 
credited to the reserve fund, are available to the lender at the 
offices of the commissioner during normal business hours. 
    Sec. 152.  [116J.8766] [CLAIMS BY LENDER TO RESERVE FUND.] 
    Subdivision 1.  [CLAIM PROCESS.] (a) If the lender charges 
off all or part of an enrolled loan, the lender may file a claim 
with the commissioner.  The claim must be filed 
contemporaneously with the charge-off. 
    (b) The lender's claim may include, in addition to the 
amount of principal charged off plus accrued interest, one-half 
of the documented out-of-pocket expenses incurred in pursuing 
its collection efforts, including preservation of collateral.  
The amount of principal and accrued interest included in the 
claim may not exceed the principal amount covered under the 
program upon enrollment, plus accrued interest attributable to 
the covered principal amount. 
    (c) The lender shall determine when and how much to charge 
off on an enrolled loan in a manner consistent with its normal 
method for making these determinations on similar loans which 
are not enrolled loans. 
    (d) If the lender files two or more claims 
contemporaneously and there are insufficient funds in its 
reserve fund at that time to cover the entire amount of the 
claims, the lender may designate the order of priority in which 
the commissioner shall pay the claims. 
    Subd. 2.  [DISBURSEMENT OF RESERVE FUND.] (a) Upon receipt 
by the commissioner of a claim filed by the lender, the 
commissioner shall, within ten business days, pay or authorize 
the lender to withdraw from the reserve fund the amount of the 
claim as submitted, unless the information provided by the 
lender was known by the lender to be false at the time the loan 
was filed for enrollment.  No other violation of sections 146 to 
155 or the agreement is grounds for denial of a claim. 
    (b) If there is insufficient money in the reserve fund to 
cover the entire amount of the lender's claim, the commissioner 
shall pay to the lender or authorize the lender to withdraw an 
amount equal to the current balance in the reserve fund and the 
following shall apply: 
    (1) If the enrolled loan for which the claim has been filed 
is not an early loan, the payment fully satisfies the claim, and 
the lender has no right to receive any further amount from the 
reserve fund with respect to that claim. 
    (2) If the loan is an early loan, the partial payment does 
not satisfy the lender's claim, and at any time that the 
remaining balance of the claim is not greater than 75 percent of 
the balance in the reserve fund at the time of the loss, the 
commissioner, upon request of the lender, shall pay the 
remaining balance of the claim. 
    Subd. 3.  [RECOVERY BY LENDER SUBSEQUENT TO CLAIM.] If, 
subsequent to payment of a claim by the commissioner, the lender 
recovers from a borrower any amount for which payment of the 
claim was made, the lender shall promptly pay to the 
commissioner for deposit in the reserve fund the amount 
recovered, less one-half of any documented out-of-pocket 
expenses incurred.  The lender need pay to the commissioner for 
deposit in the reserve fund only amounts in excess of the amount 
of recovery needed to fully cover the lender's loss on an 
enrolled loan. 
    For the purposes of this subdivision and section 153, the 
lender's loss on an enrolled loan includes any losses on the 
loan including principal, accrued interest, and one-half of the 
documented out-of-pocket expenses attributable to principal 
amounts in excess of the amount covered under the program or the 
principal amount included in the claim. 
    Sec. 153.  [116J.8767] [SUBROGATION OF CLAIMS.] 
    Subdivision 1.  [LIMITATION.] The commissioner may exercise 
the right of subrogation under this section if the commissioner 
determines, in the commissioner's discretion, that the lender 
has not exercised reasonable care and diligence in its 
collection activities with respect to the loan or that there is 
a reasonable basis for believing that the lender will not 
exercise reasonable care and diligence in the future with 
respect to the collection activities. 
    Subd. 2.  [ASSIGNMENT OF RIGHTS.] If the payment of a claim 
has fully covered the lender's loss on an enrolled loan, or if 
the payment of a claim when combined with any recovery from the 
borrower has fully covered the lender's loss, the commissioner, 
upon request, is subrogated to the rights of the lender with 
respect to any collateral, security, or other right of recovery 
in connection with the loan that has not been realized by the 
lender.  The lender thereafter shall assign to the commissioner 
any right, title, or interest to any collateral, security, or 
other right of recovery in connection with the loan. 
    Subd. 3.  [LENDER OBLIGATIONS.] If an assignment has been 
made, the commissioner is not required to undertake any 
obligations of the lender under its loan documents, except for 
any obligations directly related to the commissioner's assigned 
rights of recovery in connection with the loan.  The lender 
shall fulfill any other obligations it may have under the loan 
documents in the same manner and to the same degree as required 
had the assignment not been made.  The lender shall provide the 
commissioner with all reasonable assistance the commissioner 
requests in proceeding with respect to any collateral, security, 
or other right of recovery, except that the lender need not 
incur any out-of-pocket expenses. 
    Subd. 4.  [PAYMENT OF LENDER'S LOSS.] If the commissioner 
decides to exercise the right of subrogation in connection with 
an enrolled loan and would be entitled to exercise the right 
except for the fact that the lender's loss has not been fully 
covered, the commissioner may pay from money in the reserve fund 
an amount sufficient to fully cover the lender's loss even 
though the payment may cover a principal amount not covered 
under the program or not included in the lender's claim.  Upon 
making the payment, the commissioner is subrogated to the rights 
of the lender. 
    Subd. 5.  [RECOVERED FUNDS.] Any money received by the 
commissioner as a result of enforcement actions taken with 
respect to any collateral, security, or other rights of recovery 
must be promptly deposited by the commissioner in the reserve 
fund, less any out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the 
commissioner in taking such enforcement actions. 
    Sec. 154.  [116J.8768] [EXCESS RESERVE FUNDS.] 
    Subdivision 1.  [REPORTS.] The lender shall file quarterly 
reports with the commissioner indicating the number and 
aggregate outstanding balance of all enrolled loans as of the 
end of each quarter.  A quarterly report is not required for any 
quarter that ends with a balance in the reserve fund of zero, 
except that a calendar year-end report must be filed.  In 
computing the aggregate outstanding balance of all enrolled 
loans, the balance of any loan may not be greater than the 
covered amount of the loan as enrolled. 
    Subd. 2.  [WITHDRAWAL OF EXCESS RESERVE FUNDS.] (a) If 
reports filed under this section indicate that for the 
immediately preceding 24-month period the balance in the reserve 
fund continually exceeded the aggregate outstanding balance of 
all enrolled loans, the commissioner may withdraw from the 
reserve fund, on or before the last day of the month for which a 
report is due, an amount not greater than the amount by which 
the reserve fund balance exceeded the aggregate outstanding 
balance of all enrolled loans as of the most recent report, 
unless the lender has provided to the commissioner adequate 
documentation that at some time during that 24-month period the 
aggregate outstanding balance of all enrolled loans exceeded the 
balance then in the reserve fund.  Any amounts withdrawn from 
the reserve fund must be transferred to the account. 
    (b) If a report is not filed within 30 days of its original 
due date, the commissioner may withdraw from the reserve fund 
based on the commissioner's determination from an inspection of 
the lender's files an amount not greater than the amount by 
which the reserve fund balance exceeded the aggregate 
outstanding balance of all enrolled loans as of the date for 
which the report was required to be filed. 
    Sec. 155.  [116J.8769] [TERMINATION.] 
    The commissioner may terminate the obligation to a lender 
to enroll loans under the program if the commissioner determines 
that the lender is not in substantial compliance with the 
requirements of the program.  The termination takes effect on 
the date specified in the notice of termination, except that the 
termination does not apply to any loan made on or before the 
date on which the notice of termination is received by the 
lender.  If the commissioner is terminating the enrollment of 
loans for all participating lenders under the program, the 
commissioner shall provide notice of at least 90 days to the 
lender.  Any terminations under this section are prospective 
only and do not apply to any loans previously refinanced.  After 
termination, the amount covered under the program may not be 
increased beyond the covered amount as previously enrolled.

security interest except the following: 
    (a) A security interest in collateral in possession of the 
secured party under section 336.9-305; 
    (b) A security interest temporarily perfected in 
instruments or documents without delivery under section 
336.9-304 or in proceeds for a 20 day period under section 
336.9-306; 
    (c) A security interest created by an assignment of a

    (d) A purchase money security interest in consumer goods; 
but filing is required for a motor vehicle required to be

the article on sales (see section 336.9-113) or covered in 
subsection (3) of this section; 
    (g) An assignment for the benefit of all the creditors of 
the transferor, and subsequent transfers by the assignee 
thereunder. 
    (2) If a secured party assigns a perfected security 
interest, no filing under this article is required in order to 
continue the perfected status of the security interest against 
creditors of and transferees from the original debtor. 
    (3) The filing of a financing statement otherwise required 
by this article is not necessary or effective to perfect a 
security interest in property subject to the following statutes 
or treaties; except that to the extent such statutes or treaties 
are silent on a specific matter, the provisions of this article 
shall govern: 
    (a) a statute or treaty of the United States which provides 
for a national or international registration or a national or 
international certificate of title or which specifies a place of 
filing different from that specified in this article for filing 
of the security interest; or 
    (b) the following statutes of this state; 
    (i) Sections 168A.01 to 168A.31 and sections 222 to 242; 
but during any period in which collateral is inventory held for 
sale by a person who is in the business of selling goods of that 
kind, the filing provisions of this article (part 4) apply to a 
security interest in that collateral created by the person as a 
debtor; or 
    (ii) Sections 300.11 to 300.115. 
    (c) a certificate of title statute of another jurisdiction

certificate is required as a condition of perfection (subsection 
(2) of section 336.9-103).

statement under this article, and a security interest in 
property subject to the statute or treaty can be perfected only 
by compliance therewith except as provided in section 336.9-103 
on multiple state transactions.  A security interest perfected 
by compliance with such a statute or treaty is governed by this 
article in all respects not inconsistent with the provisions of 
the statute or treaty under which it was perfected, provided 
that this article shall not be deemed inconsistent if it 
provides for a more extensive duration of effectiveness. 
    Sec. 215.  Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 336.9-403, is 
amended to read: 
    336.9-403 [WHAT CONSTITUTES FILING; DURATION OF FILING; 
EFFECT OF LAPSED FILING; DUTIES OF FILING OFFICER.] 
    (1) Presentation for filing of a financing statement and 
tender of the filing fee or acceptance of the statement by the 
filing officer constitutes filing under this article. 
    (2) Except as provided in subsection (6) a filed financing 
statement is effective for a period of five years from the date 
of filing.  The effectiveness of a filed financing statement 
lapses on the expiration of the five-year period unless a 
continuation statement is filed prior to the lapse.  If a 
security interest perfected by filing exists at the time 
insolvency proceedings are commenced by or against the debtor, 
the security interest remains perfected until termination of the 
insolvency proceedings and thereafter for a period of 60 days or 
until expiration of the five-year period, whichever occurs later 
regardless of whether the financing statement filed as to that 
security interest is destroyed by the filing officer pursuant to 
subsection (3).  Upon lapse the security interest becomes 
unperfected, unless it is perfected without filing.  If the 
security interest becomes unperfected upon lapse, it is deemed 
to have been unperfected as against a person who became a 
purchaser or lien creditor before lapse. 
       (3) A continuation statement may be filed by the secured 
party within six months prior to the expiration of the five-year 
period specified in subsection (2).  Any such continuation 
statement must be signed by the secured party, set forth the 
name and address of the debtor and secured party as those items 
appear on the original financing statement or the most recently 
filed amendment, identify the original statement by file number 
and filing date, and state that the original statement is still 
effective.  A continuation statement signed by a person other 
than the secured party of record must be accompanied by a 
separate written statement of assignment signed by the secured 
party of record and complying with subsection (2) of section 
336.9-405, including payment of the required fee.  Upon timely 
filing of the continuation statement, the effectiveness of the 
original statement is continued for five years after the last 
date to which the filing was effective whereupon it lapses in 
the same manner as provided in subsection (2) unless another 
continuation statement is filed prior to such lapse.  Succeeding 
continuation statements may be filed in the same manner to 
continue the effectiveness of the original statement.  Unless a 
statute on disposition of public records provides otherwise, the 
filing officer may remove a lapsed statement from the files and 
destroy it immediately if the officer has retained a microfilm 
or other photographic record, or in other cases after one year 
after the lapse.  The filing officer shall so arrange matters by 
physical annexation of financing statements to continuation 
statements or other related filings, or by other means, that if 
the officer physically destroys the financing statements of a 
period more than five years past, those which have been 
continued by a continuation statement or which are still 
effective under subsection (6) shall be retained.  If insolvency 
proceedings are commenced by or against the debtor, the secured 
party shall notify the filing officer both upon commencement and 
termination of the proceedings, and the filing officer shall not 
destroy any financing statements filed with respect to the 
debtor until termination of the insolvency proceedings.  The 
security interest remains perfected until termination of the 
insolvency proceedings and thereafter for a period of 60 days or 
until expiration of the five-year period, whichever occurs later.
       (4) Except as provided in subsection (7) a filing officer 
shall mark each statement with a file number and with the date 
and hour of filing and shall hold the statement or a microfilm 
or other photographic copy thereof for public inspection.  In 
addition the filing officer shall index the statements according 
to the name of the debtor and shall note in the index the file 
number and the address of the debtor given in the statement. 
    (5) The secretary of state shall prescribe uniform forms 
for statements and samples thereof shall be furnished to all 
filing officers in the state.  The uniform fee for filing and 
indexing and for stamping a copy furnished by the secured party 
to show the date and place of filing for an original financing 
statement or for a continuation statement shall be $5 $7 if the 
statement is in the standard form prescribed by the secretary of 
state and otherwise shall be $10, plus in each case, if the 
financing statement is subject to subsection (5) of section 
336.9-402, $5.  An additional fee of $5 $7 shall be collected if 
more than one name is required to be indexed or if the secured 
party chooses to show a trade name for any debtor listed.  There 
shall be no The uniform fee collected for the filing of an 
amendment to a financing statement if the amendment is in the 
standard form prescribed by the secretary of state and does not 
add additional debtor names to the financing statement shall be 
$7.  The fee for an amendment adding additional debtor names 
shall be $5 $14 if the amendment is in the form prescribed by 
the secretary of state and, if otherwise, $10 $17.  The fee for 
an amendment which is not in the form prescribed by the 
secretary of state but which does not add additional names shall 
be $5 $10.  
     The secretary of state shall adopt rules for filing, 
amendment, continuation, termination, removal, and destruction 
of financing statements. 
     (6) If the debtor is a transmitting utility (subsection (5) 
of section 336.9-401) and a filed financing statement so states, 
it is effective until a termination statement is filed.  A real 
estate mortgage which is effective as a fixture filing under 
subsection (6) of section 336.9-402 remains effective as a 
fixture filing until the mortgage is released or satisfied of 
record or its effectiveness otherwise terminates as to the real 
estate. 
      (7) When a financing statement covers timber to be cut or 
covers minerals or the like (including oil and gas) or accounts 
subject to subsection (5) of section 336.9-103, or is filed as a 
fixture filing, it shall be filed for record and the filing 
officer shall index it under the names of the debtor and any 
owner of record shown on the financing statement in the same 
fashion as if they were the mortgagors in a mortgage of the real 
estate described, and, to the extent that the law of this state 
provides for indexing of mortgages under the name of the 
mortgagee, under the name of the secured party as if the secured 
party were the mortgagee thereunder, or, for filing offices 
other than the secretary of state, where indexing is by 
description in the same fashion as if the financing statement

in such case, the filing officer shall also index the recorded 
statement in accordance with subsection (4) using the recording

amended to read: 
    336.9-405 [ASSIGNMENT OF SECURITY INTEREST; DUTIES OF 
FILING OFFICER; FEES.] 
    (1) A financing statement may disclose an assignment of a 
security interest in the collateral described in the financing 
statement by indication in the financing statement of the name 
and address of the assignee or by an assignment itself or a copy 
thereof on the face of the statement.  On presentation to the 
filing officer of such a financing statement the filing officer 
shall mark the same as provided in section 336.9-403(4).  The 
uniform fee for filing, indexing, and furnishing filing data for 
a financing statement so indicating an assignment shall be the 
same as the fee prescribed in section 336.9-403, clause (5). 
     (2) A secured party of record may record an assignment of 
all or a part of the secured party's rights under a financing 
statement by the filing in the place where the original 
financing statement was filed of a separate written statement of 
assignment signed by the secured party of record, setting forth 
the name and address of the secured party of record and the 
debtor as those items appear on the original financing statement 
or the most recently filed amendment, identifying the file 
number and the date of filing of the financing statement, giving 
the name and address of the assignee and containing a 
description of the collateral assigned.  A copy of the 
assignment is sufficient as a separate statement if it complies 
with the preceding sentence.  On presentation to the filing 
officer of such a separate statement, the filing officer shall 
mark such separate statement with the date and hour of the 
filing.  The filing officer shall note the assignment on the 
index of the financing statement, or in the case of a fixture 
filing, or a filing covering timber to be cut, or covering 
minerals or the like (including oil and gas) or accounts subject 
to subsection (5) of section 336.9-103.  The filing officer 
shall also index the assignment under the name of the assignor

provides for indexing the assignment of a mortgage under the 
name of the assignee, index the assignment of the financing 
statement under the name of the assignee.  The uniform fee for 
filing, indexing, and furnishing filing data about such a 
separate statement of assignment shall be $5 $7 if the statement 
is in the standard form prescribed by the secretary of state and 
otherwise shall be $10, plus in each case, if the original 
financing statement was subject to subsection (5) of section 
336.9-402, the fee prescribed by section 357.18, subdivision 1, 
clause (1).  An additional fee of $5 $7 shall be charged if 
there is more than one name against which the statement of 
assignment is required to be indexed.  Notwithstanding the 
provisions of this subsection, an assignment of record of a 
security interest in a fixture contained in a mortgage effective 
as a fixture filing (subsection (6) of section 336.9-402) may be 
made only by an assignment of the mortgage in the manner 
provided by the law of this state other than Laws 1976, chapter 
135.

this section, the assignee is the secured party of record.

statement.  The statement of release is sufficient if it 
contains a description of the collateral being released, the 
name and address of the debtor and secured party as those items 
appear on the original financing statement or the most recently 
filed amendment, and identifies the original financing statement 
by file number and filing date.  A statement of release signed 
by a person other than the secured party of record must be

by the secured party of record and complying with subsection (2) 
of section 336.9-405, including payment of the required fee.

court may establish a limit on the amount which may be expended 
or promised for such services.  The court may, in the interests 
of justice, and upon a finding that timely procurement of 
necessary services could not await prior authorization, ratify

of reimbursement for expenses reasonably incurred, unless 
payment in excess of that limit is certified by the court as 
necessary to provide fair compensation for services of an 
unusual character or duration and the amount of the excess 
payment is approved by the chief judge of the district.  The 
chief judge of the judicial district may delegate approval 
authority to an active district judge.  
    (c) If the court denies authorizing counsel to obtain 
services on behalf of the defendant, the court shall make 
written findings of fact and conclusions of law that state the 
basis for determining that counsel may not obtain services on 
behalf of the defendant.  When the court issues an order denying 
counsel the authority to obtain services, the defendant may 
appeal immediately from that order to the court of appeals and 
may request an expedited hearing.

criminal cases are met by judges within the district: 
    (1) 90 percent of all criminal cases must be disposed of 
within 120 days; 
    (2) 97 percent of all criminal cases must be disposed of 
within 180 days; and 
    (3) 99 percent of all criminal cases must be disposed of 
within 365 days. 
    The time periods referred to in clauses (1) to (3) must be 
measured from the date the criminal complaint is filed, to the 
date the defendant is either found not guilty or is sentenced.  
If the criminal case begins by indictment rather than by

criminal cases and the expeditious disposition of civil cases.

district and the time necessary to dispose of the various types 
of cases, including felonies, gross misdemeanors, misdemeanors, 
marriage dissolution and other family law matters, probate, 
juvenile, general civil matters, and conciliation court 
matters.  The plan must be based on the assumption that the 
judicial and staff resources that will be available are those 
available on July 1, 1989. 
    In addition to preparing a caseload management plan, the 
judges of each judicial district shall make written 
recommendations for any changes in rules of procedure or

district courts.

recommendations for changes in rules of procedure or statutes 
affecting procedure, must be filed with the state court

ways to more expeditiously dispose of criminal cases in the 
district courts, in a manner that preserves the interest of both 
the defendant and the state in having a fair and just outcome.  
The commission shall consist of sufficient members to provide 
adequate representation of the viewpoints and experience of 
judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys involved in the 
disposition of criminal matters.  The commission may establish 
advisory groups to focus on juvenile law or other specific areas 
of practice. 
    The commission study must include the following: 
    (1) whether model proposals or rules and statutes from 
other jurisdictions provide any alternatives that might be 
followed to modify the rules of criminal procedure and statutes 
affecting criminal procedure in ways that would simplify 
procedures without sacrificing fair outcome; 
    (2) whether certain kinds of offenses, such as traffic 
petty misdemeanors and housing code violations, might be better 
processed if the only possible sentence were a fine rather than 
incarceration, if a referee or administrative officer rather 
than a judge presided, and if no prosecuting attorney was 
involved, with the option of enhancing the matter to a 
misdemeanor if prior judgments have been entered against a 
party; 
    (3) whether the petty misdemeanor category should be 
expanded to replace current misdemeanor offenses in some 
instances, with criteria for enhancing a petty misdemeanor to a 
misdemeanor in specified circumstances; and 
    (4) whether other administrative or legislative action can 
be taken to facilitate the expeditious disposition of criminal 
cases without sacrifice of due process of law. 
    The commission shall report its conclusions to the supreme 
court on or before January 1, 1991. 
    Sec. 42.  [TRANSITIONAL PROVISIONS.] 
    Subdivision 1.  [HIRING AND SALARY MORATORIUM.] A county or 
a court must not increase the number of referees, judicial 
officers, court reporters, law clerks, or district 
administration employees in the county, other than district 
administration employees in the second or fourth judicial

increase was authorized before January 30, 1989.  
Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, the supreme court may 
authorize an additional complement of up to five law clerks for 
the seventh judicial district.  A county or a court must not 
increase the salaries of these employees without the approval of 
the supreme court, unless the increase is made under a plan 
adopted before January 30, 1989.  The supreme court must not 
approve aggregate performance increases for these employees that 
exceed an average of four percent.

for calendar year 1991 must be made by October 1, 1990. 
    Sec. 43.  [CONTINUED STUDY BY SUPREME COURT.]

the governor and the legislature by August 1, 1990, for 
inclusion in the governor's budget recommendations to the 
legislature for the 1991 session, regarding their control and 
financing.  The supreme court shall also study the right to 
legal counsel in juvenile justice matters and recommend criteria 
for that right to the legislature by July 1, 1990.

court costs in the counties.  The plan shall also include the 
costs of items not mentioned in this section that the supreme 
court believes may be a function that the state could take over 
if it were to fund the state trial court system. These costs 
must be included in any report to the legislature on state 
takeover of the trial court and public defense systems.  
Counties in all the judicial districts shall cooperate with the

and revenues to be transferred to the state if the state were to 
fund the takeover of the trial court system statewide.  The 
report shall include an analysis of all the costs of and 
revenues from the operations of all the trial courts in the 
state.  The analysis must identify appropriate job 
classifications and salary ranges for court employees, and the 
costs and benefits associated with a change from county to state 
employment.  The report must also include an evaluation of the 
improvement of the administration of justice, if any, that 
results from the eighth district project and that may result as 
a consequence of the state takeover.  The report must also 
include recommendations for state takeover of trial court costs 
statewide including a detailed estimate of the costs and 
benefits, employee status, types of costs that may be associated

and public defense services that the state does not fund during 
the eighth district project.  The supreme court shall certify to 
the counties on or before October 1 of each year the amount 
necessary in excess of the state-funded eighth district project 
costs.  The counties are responsible on a per capita prorated 
basis for the costs that the state is not assuming.  These 
include but are not limited to capital costs, rent, and other 
associated costs.  The county administrator of each of the 
counties shall consult with the supreme court and the eighth 
judicial district administrator regarding these costs before 
setting county budgets and levies for calendar year 1990.

                                ARTICLE 4

                           FUND CONSOLIDATION 
    Section 1.  [STATEMENT OF PURPOSE.] 
    During recent years the state of Minnesota has experienced 
a significant increase in the number of special revenue accounts 
and funds that has created a large base of nongeneral fund 
budget activities.  The resulting structure is complicated and 
at best difficult for the legislature to exercise adequate 
legislative oversight of.  Executive branch agencies are also 
being faced with increased administrative costs and programmatic 
restrictions because of the growing number of special revenue 
funds and accounts.  This article is an attempt to simplify the 
existing accounting structure and develop an accounting 
organizational structure that is reflective of agency functional 
organizations.

special revenue accounts and funds.  Fund consolidation in this 
article shall not be accomplished at the expense of those user 
groups who pay fees to the current special revenue accounts and

property, and improvements of several counties of the state.  At 
least once in each year, if funds and personnel permit, the 
state auditor shall visit, without previous notice, each county 
and make a thorough examination of all accounts and records 
relating to the receipt and disbursement of the public funds and 
the custody of the public funds, including the game and fish 
funds, and other property.  The state auditor shall prescribe 
and install systems of accounts and financial reports that shall 
be uniform, so far as practicable, for the same class of 
offices.  A copy of the report of such examination shall be 
filed and be subject to public inspection in the office of the 
state auditor and another copy in the office of the auditor of 
the county thus examined.  The state auditor may accept the 
records and audit, or any part thereof, of the department of 
human services in lieu of examination of the county social 
welfare funds, if such audit has been made within any period 
covered by the state auditor's audit of the other records of the 
county.  If any such examination shall disclose malfeasance, 
misfeasance, or nonfeasance in any office of such county, such 
report shall be filed with the county attorney of the county, 
and the county attorney shall institute such civil and criminal 
proceedings as the law and the protection of the public 
interests shall require.  
    The county receiving such examination, and the division of 
game and fish of the department of natural resources of the 
state of Minnesota, in the case of the examination of the game 
and fish funds, shall pay to the state auditor's revolving 
general fund, notwithstanding the provisions of section 16A.125, 
the total cost and expenses of such examinations, including the 
salaries paid to the examiners while actually engaged in making 
such examination.  The state auditor on deeming it advisable may

approving and paying claims shall cause said bill to be promptly 
paid.  The revolving general fund of the state auditor shall be

shall be liable to the state for the total cost and expenses of 
such examination, including the salaries paid to the examiners 
while actually engaged in making such examination.  The state 
auditor may bill such county, city, town, or school district 
monthly for service rendered and the officials responsible for 
approving and paying claims are authorized to pay said bill 
promptly.  Said payments shall be without prejudice to any 
defense against said claims that may exist or be asserted.  The 
revolving general fund of the state auditor shall be credited 
with all collections made for any such examinations.

other expenses, and for the acquisition of equipment used in 
connection with reimbursable examinations and other duties 
pursuant to law.  When full-time personnel are not available, 
the state auditor may contract with private persons, firms, or 
corporations for accounting and other technical services.  
Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, the acquisition of 
equipment may include duplicating equipment to be used in 
producing the reports issued by the department.  All receipts 
from such reimbursable examinations shall be deposited in the 
general fund and are hereby reappropriated to that purpose.  The 
state auditor is directed to adjust the schedule of charges for 
such examinations to provide that such charges shall be 
sufficient to cover all costs of such examinations and that the 
aggregate charges collected shall be sufficient to pay all 
salaries and other expenses including charges for the use of the 
equipment used in connection with such reimbursable examinations 
and including the cost of contracting for accounting and other 
technical services.  The schedule of charges shall be based upon 
an estimate of the cost of performing reimbursable examinations 
including, but not limited to, salaries, office overhead, 
equipment, authorized contracts, and other expenses.  The state 
auditor may allocate a proportionate part of the total costs to 
an hourly or daily charge for each person or class of persons 
engaged in the performance of an examination.  The schedule of 
charges shall reflect an equitable charge for the expenses 
incurred in the performance of any given examination.  The state 
auditor shall review and adjust the schedule of charges for such 
examinations at least annually and have all schedules of charges 
approved by the commissioner of finance before they are adopted 
so as to insure that the amount collected shall be sufficient to 
pay all the costs connected with such examinations during the 
fiscal year and that the unobligated balance, including accounts 
receivable, in the revolving fund at the end of each fiscal year 
shall not be less than $315,000.  The unobligated balance in the

the money would outweigh the benefit to the victims, then the 
court may order that the money be paid into a consumer education

     (5) Establishing, and from time to time revising, standards 
of performance for new sources taking into consideration, among 
other things, classes, types, sizes, and categories of sources, 
processes, pollution control technology, cost of achieving such 
effluent reduction, and any nonwater quality environmental 
impact and energy requirements.  Said standards of performance 
for new sources shall encompass those standards for the control 
of the discharge of pollutants which reflect the greatest degree 
of effluent reduction which the agency determines to be 
achievable through application of the best available 
demonstrated control technology, processes, operating methods, 
or other alternatives, including, where practicable, a standard

publicly owned disposal system, which pollutant interferes with, 
passes through, or otherwise is incompatible with such disposal 
system; 
     (7) Requiring the owner or operator of any disposal system 
or any point source to establish and maintain such records, make 
such reports, install, use, and maintain such monitoring 
equipment or methods, including where appropriate biological 
monitoring methods, sample such effluents in accordance with 
such methods, at such locations, at such intervals, and in such 
a manner as the agency shall prescribe, and providing such other 
information as the agency may reasonably require;

limitations than otherwise imposed by effluent limitations in 
order to meet any applicable water quality standard by 
establishing new effluent limitations, based upon section 
115.01, subdivision 5, clause (b), including alternative 
effluent control strategies for any point source or group of 
point sources to insure the integrity of water quality 
classifications, whenever the agency determines that discharges 
of pollutants from such point source or sources, with the 
application of effluent limitations required to comply with any 
standard of best available technology, would interfere with the 
attainment or maintenance of the water quality classification in 
a specific portion of the waters of the state.  Prior to 
establishment of any such effluent limitation, the agency shall 
hold a public hearing to determine the relationship of the 
economic and social costs of achieving such limitation or 
limitations, including any economic or social dislocation in the 
affected community or communities, to the social and economic 
benefits to be obtained and to determine whether or not such 
effluent limitation can be implemented with available technology 
or other alternative control strategies.  If a person affected 
by such limitation demonstrates at such hearing that, whether or 
not such technology or other alternative control strategies are 
available, there is no reasonable relationship between the 
economic and social costs and the benefits to be obtained, such 
limitation shall not become effective and shall be adjusted as 
it applies to such person; 
     (9) Modifying, in its discretion, any requirement or 
limitation based upon best available technology with respect to 
any point source for which a permit application is filed after 
July 1, 1977 upon a showing by the owner or operator of such 
point source satisfactory to the agency that such modified 
requirements will represent the maximum use of technology within 
the economic capability of the owner or operator and will result 
in reasonable further progress toward the elimination of the 
discharge of pollutants; 
     (f) To require to be submitted and to approve plans and 
specifications for disposal systems or point sources, or any 
part thereof and to inspect the construction thereof for 
compliance with the approved plans and specifications thereof;

law, for the conduct of the agency and other matters within the 
scope of the powers granted to and imposed upon it by this 
chapter and, with respect to pollution of waters of the state, 
in chapter 116, provided that every rule affecting any other 
department or agency of the state or any person other than a 
member or employee of the agency shall be filed with the 
secretary of state; 
     (h) To conduct such investigations, issue such notices, 
public and otherwise, and hold such hearings as are necessary or 
which it may deem advisable for the discharge of its duties 
under this chapter and, with respect to the pollution of waters 
of the state, under chapter 116, including, but not limited to, 
the issuance of permits, and to authorize any member, employee, 
or agent appointed by it to conduct such investigations or,

section, the court administrator shall correct the record to

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 general fund.  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 general fund.  
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
