Sec. 2. Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 403.07, is amended by adding a subdivision to read: Subd. 3. [DATA BASE.] In 911 systems that have been approved by the department of administration for a local location identification base, each public utility providing telephone service shall provide current customer names, service addresses, and telephone numbers to each public safety answering point within the 911 system and shall update the information according to a schedule prescribed by the county 911 plan.

The information furnished under subdivision 3 may not be used or disclosed by 911 system agencies, their agents, or their employees for any other purpose except under a court order. This subdivision does not affect access to service data under section 13.82, subdivision 3, when data subject to that provision is sought from a law enforcement agency. Sec. 4.

Recurring charges by a public utility providing telephone service for updating the information required by section 403.07, subdivision 3, must be paid by the commissioner for information if the utility is included in an approved 911 plan and the charges have been certified and approved under subdivision 3. (b) The fee may not be less than eight cents nor more than 30 cents a month for each customer access line, including trunk equivalents as designated by the public utilities commission for access charge purposes.

Fees are payable to and must be submitted to the commissioner of administration monthly before the 25th of each month following the month of collection, except that fees may be submitted quarterly if less than $250 a month is due, or annually if less than $25 a month is due. Receipts must be deposited in the state treasury and credited to a 911 emergency telephone service account in the special revenue fund. The money in the account may only be used for 911 telephone services as provided in paragraph (a). (d) The commissioner of administration, with the approval of the commissioner of finance, shall establish the amount of the fee within the limits specified and inform the utilities of the amount to be collected. Utilities must be given a minimum of 45 days notice of fee changes. Presented to the governor April 26, 1990 Signed by the governor May 3, 1990, 5:29 p.m.
