section 14, is amended to read:  
    Subd. 7.  [ESTABLISHMENT OF CANDIDACY STATUS.] (a) The 
board may issue a practice permit to an applicant in the 
following situations, provided the applicant meets all other 
requirements for licensure: 
    (1) the applicant has applied to take the first examination 
for licensure given by the board following either graduation or 
anticipated graduation from an accredited program of social 
work; or 
    (2) the applicant is licensed or certified to practice 
social work in Minnesota or another jurisdiction, meets the 
requirements in section 148B.24, has or is intending to 
establish a residence practice in Minnesota before being able to 
take the next examination for licensure given by the board, and 
has applied to take the same examination. 
    (b) The practice permit is valid until the board takes 
final action on the application, which shall occur within 60 
days of the board's receipt of the applicant's examination 
results.  The board, at its discretion, may extend the practice 
permit if the applicant fails to pass or take the examination.  
If the board determines that an extension of the practice permit 
is not warranted, the applicant must cease practicing social 
work immediately. 
    (c) An applicant who obtains a practice permit, and who has 
applied for a level of licensure which requires supervision upon 
licensure, may practice social work only under the supervision 
of a licensed social worker who is eligible to provide 
supervision under section 148B.18, subdivision 12.  The 
applicant's supervisor must provide evidence to the board, 
before the applicant is approved by the board for licensure, 
that the applicant has practiced social work under supervision.  
This supervision will not apply toward the supervision 
requirement required after licensure. 
    Sec. 6.  [CORRECTION 52; EDUCATION AIDS.] 1992 H.F. No. 
2121, article 8, section 33, if enacted, is amended to read:

committees of the legislature a progress report about the 
proposed high school graduation rule by February 1, 1993, and a 
final report about the proposed rule by January 1, 1994.  
Notwithstanding Minnesota Statutes, section 121.11, subdivision 
12, the state board of education may continue its proceedings to 
adopt a graduation rule but must not take final action under 
Minnesota Statutes, sections 14.131 to 14.20 to adopt the rule 
before July 1, 1994.  The 180-day time limit in Minnesota 
Statutes, section 14.19, does not apply to the rule. 
    Sec. 7.  [CORRECTION 52; EDUCATION AIDS.] Minnesota 
Statutes 1990, section 275.125, subdivision 6k, as added by 1992 
H.F. No. 2121, article 7, section 12, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 6k.  [HEALTH INSURANCE LEVY.] (a) A school district 
may levy the amount necessary to make employer contributions for 
insurance for retired employees under this subdivision.  
Notwithstanding section 121.904, 50 percent of the amount levied 
shall be recognized as revenue for the fiscal year in which the 
levy is certified.  This levy shall not be considered in 
computing the aid reduction under section 124.155. 
    (b) The school board of a joint vocational technical 
district formed under sections 136C.60 to 136C.69 and the school 
board of a school district may provide employer-paid hospital, 
medical, and dental benefits to a person who: 
    (1) is eligible for employer-paid insurance under 
collective bargaining agreements or personnel plans in effect on 
the day before the effective date of this section; 
    (2) has at least 25 years of service credit in the public 
pension plan of which the person is a member on the day before 
retirement or, in the case of a teacher, has a total of at least 
25 years of service credit in the teachers retirement 
association, a first-class city teacher retirement fund, or any 
combination of these; 
    (3) upon retirement is immediately eligible for a 
retirement annuity; 
    (4) is at least 55 and not yet 65 years of age; and 
    (5) retires on or after May 15, 1992, and before July 21, 
1992. 
    A school board paying insurance under this subdivision may 
not exclude any eligible employees. 
    (c) An employee who is eligible both for the health 
insurance benefit under this subdivision and for an early 
retirement incentive under a collective bargaining agreement or 
personnel plan established by the employer must select either 
the early retirement incentive provided under the collective 
bargaining agreement personnel plan or the incentive provided 
under this subdivision, but may not receive both.  For purposes 
of this subdivision, a person retires when the person terminates 
active employment and applies for retirement benefits.  The 
retired employee is eligible for single and dependent coverages 
and employer payments to which the person was entitled 
immediately before retirement, subject to any changes in 
coverage and employer and employee payments through collective 
bargaining or personnel plans, for employees in positions 
equivalent to the position from which the employee retired.  The 
retired employee is not eligible for employer-paid life 
insurance.  Eligibility ceases when the retired employee attains 
the age of 65, or when the employee chooses not to receive the 
retirement benefits for which the employee has applied, or when 
the employee is eligible for employer-paid health insurance from 
a new employer.  Coverages must be coordinated with relevant 
health insurance benefits provided through the federally 
sponsored Medicare program.  
    (d) An employee who retires under this subdivision using 
the rule of 90 must not be included in the calculations required 
by section 356.85. 
    (e) Unilateral implementation of this section by a public 
employer is not an unfair labor practice for purposes of chapter 
179A.  The authority provided in this subdivision for an 
employer to pay health insurance costs for certain retired 
employees is not subject to the limits in section 179A.20, 
subdivision 2a. 
    (f) If a school district levies according to this 
subdivision, it may not also levy according to article 6, 
section 9 13, for eligible employees. 
    Sec. 8.  [CORRECTION 52; EDUCATION AIDS.] 1992 H.F. No. 
2121, article 1, section 20, is amended to read: 
    Sec. 20.  [LOW FUND BALANCE LEVY.]

qualifications in paragraph (b) may levy an amount not to exceed 
$40 times the number of actual pupil units in the district in 
fiscal year 1993. 
    (b) a district qualifies for a levy under this section if:  
    (1) its net unappropriated operating fund balance on June 
30, 1991, divided by its actual pupil units for fiscal year 1993 
is less than $85; 
    (2) its adjusted net tax capacity used to compute fiscal 
year 1993 general education revenue divided by its fiscal year 
1993 actual pupil units is less than $2,100; and 
    (3) it does not have referendum levy authority under 
Minnesota Statutes, section 124A.03. 
    Notwithstanding Minnesota Statutes, section 121.904, or 
H.F. No. 2121, article 12, section 25, or any other law to the 
contrary, the entire amount of this levy shall be recognized in 
the fiscal year in which the levy is certified.  
    Sec. 9.  [CORRECTION 52; EDUCATION AIDS.] 1992 H.F. No. 
2121, article 5, section 37, is amended to read:  
    Sec. 37.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.]

property located within the school district for the purposes 
specified in this subdivision.  The maximum amount which may be 
levied for all costs under this subdivision shall be equal to $1 
multiplied by the population of the school district.  For 
purposes of this subdivision, "population" of the school 
district means the same as contained in section 275.14.  The 
proceeds of the levy must be used for reimbursing the cities and 
counties who contract with the school district for the following 
purposes:  (1) to pay the costs incurred for the salaries, 
benefits, and transportation costs of peace officers and 
sheriffs for liaison services in the district's middle and 
secondary schools and (2) to pay the costs for a drug abuse 
prevention program as defined in Minnesota Statutes 1991 
Supplement, section 609.101, subdivision 3, paragraph (f) in the 
elementary schools.  The school district must initially attempt 
to contract for these services with the police department of 
each city or the sheriff's department of the county within the 
school district containing the school receiving the services.  
If a local police department or a county sheriff's department 
does not wish to provide the necessary services, the district 
may contract for these services with any other police or 
sheriff's department located entirely or partially within the 
school district's boundaries.  The levy authorized under this 
subdivision is not included in determining the school district's 
levy limitations and must be disregarded in computing any 
overall levy limitations under sections 275.50 to 275.56 of the 
participating cities or counties.

results-oriented graduation rule according to the timeline in 
section 34 33.  The board shall not prescribe in rule or

Statutes 1990, section 18B.26, subdivision 3, as amended by 1992 
H.F. No. 2694, article 2, section 15, if enacted, is amended to 
read: 
    Subd. 3.  [APPLICATION FEE.] (a) A registrant shall pay an 
annual application fee for each pesticide to be registered, and 
this fee is set at one-tenth of one percent for calendar year 
1990, at one-fifth of one percent for calendar year 1991, and at 
two-fifths of one percent for calendar year 1992 and thereafter 
of annual gross sales within the state and annual gross sales of 
pesticides used in the state, with a minimum nonrefundable fee 
of $250 plus an additional one-tenth of one percent for each 
pesticide for which the United States Environmental Protection 
Agency, Office of Water, has published a Health Advisory Summary 
by December 1 of the previous year.  The registrant shall 
determine when and which pesticides are sold or used in this 
state.  The registrant shall secure sufficient sales information 
of pesticides distributed into this state from distributors and 
dealers, regardless of distributor location, to make a 
determination.  Sales of pesticides in this state and sales of 
pesticides for use in this state by out-of-state distributors 
are not exempt and must be included in the registrant's annual 
report, as required under paragraph (c), and fees shall be paid 
by the registrant based upon those reported sales.  Sales of 
pesticides in the state for use outside of the state are exempt 
from the application fee in this paragraph if the registrant 
properly documents the sale location and distributors.  A 
registrant paying more than the minimum fee shall pay the 
balance due by March 1 based on the gross sales of the pesticide 
by the registrant for the preceding calendar year.  The fee for 
disinfectants and sanitizers shall be the minimum.  The minimum 
fee is due by December 31 preceding the year for which the 
application for registration is made.  Of the amount collected 
after calendar year 1990, at least $500,000 $600,000 per fiscal 
year must be credited to the waste pesticide account under 
section 18B.065, subdivision 5, and $100,000 per fiscal year and 
the additional amount collected for pesticides with Health 
Advisory Summaries shall be credited to the agricultural project 
utilization account under section 116O.13 to be used for 
pesticide use reduction grants by the agricultural utilization 
research institute. 
    (b) An additional fee of $100 must be paid by the applicant 
for each pesticide to be registered if the application is a 
renewal application that is submitted after December 31. 
    (c) A registrant must annually report to the commissioner 
the amount and type of each registered pesticide sold, offered 
for sale, or otherwise distributed in the state.  The report 
shall be filed by March 1 for the previous year's registration.  
The commissioner shall specify the form of the report and 
require additional information deemed necessary to determine the 
amount and type of pesticides annually distributed in the 
state.  The information required shall include the brand name, 
amount, and formulation of each pesticide sold, offered for 
sale, or otherwise distributed in the state, but the information 
collected, if made public, shall be reported in a manner which 
does not identify a specific brand name in the report.

    Subd. 6.  [PUBLIC HEARING; ADOPTION OF BUDGET AND LEVY.] 
Between November 29 and December 20, the governing bodies of the 
city and county shall each hold a public hearing to adopt its 
final budget and property tax levy for taxes payable in the 
following year, and the governing body of the school district 
shall hold a public hearing to review its current budget and 
adopt its property tax levy for taxes payable in the following 
year.  
    At the hearing, the taxing authority, other than a school 
district, may amend the proposed budget and property tax levy 
and must adopt a final budget and property tax levy, and the 
school district may amend the proposed property tax levy and 
must adopt a final property tax levy.  
    The property tax levy certified under section 275.07 by a 
city, county, or school district must not exceed the proposed 
levy determined under subdivision 1, except by an amount up to 
the sum of the following amounts: 
    (1) the amount of a school district levy whose voters 
approved a referendum to increase taxes under section 124.82, 
subdivision 3, 124A.03, subdivision 2, or 124B.03, subdivision 
2, after the proposed levy was certified;

voters under section 275.58 after the proposed levy was 
certified; 
    (3) the amount of a levy to pay principal and interest on 
bonds issued or approved by the voters under section 475.58 
after the proposed levy was certified;

that amount is approved by the commissioner of revenue under 
subdivision 6a; 
     (5) the amount of a levy to pay tort judgments against a 
taxing authority that become final after the proposed levy was 
certified, if the amount is approved by the commissioner of 
revenue under subdivision 6a; 
     (6) the amount of an increase in levy limits certified to 
the taxing authority by the commissioner of revenue or the 
commissioner of education after the proposed levy was certified; 
and 
    (7) if not included in the certified levy, any additional 
amount levied pursuant to section 275.51, subdivision 7, 
paragraph (b). 
    At the hearing the percentage increase in property taxes 
proposed by the taxing authority, if any, and the specific 
purposes for which property tax revenues are being increased 
must be discussed.  During the discussion, the governing body 
shall hear comments regarding a proposed increase and explain 
the reasons for the proposed increase.  The public shall be 
allowed to speak and to ask questions prior to adoption of any 
measures by the governing body.  The governing body, other than 
the governing body of a school district, shall adopt its final 
property tax levy prior to adopting its final budget. 
    If the hearing is not completed on its scheduled date, the 
taxing authority must announce, prior to adjournment of the 
hearing, the date, time, and place for the continuation of the 
hearing.  The continued hearing must be held at least five 
business days but no more than 14 business days after the 
original hearing. 
    The hearing must be held after 5:00 p.m. if scheduled on a 
day other than Saturday.  No hearing may be held on a Sunday.  
The governing body of a county shall hold its hearing on the 
first second Tuesday in December each year.  The county auditor 
shall provide for the coordination of hearing dates for all 
cities and school districts within the county. 
    By August 15, each school board shall certify to the county 
auditors of the counties in which the school district is located 
the dates on which it elects to hold its hearings and any 
continuations.  If a school board does not certify the dates by 
August 15, the auditor will assign the hearing date.  The dates 
elected or assigned must not conflict with the county hearing 
dates.  By August 20, the county auditor shall notify the clerks 
of the cities within the county of the dates on which school 
districts have elected to hold their hearings.  At the time a 
city certifies its proposed levy under subdivision 1 it shall 
certify the dates on which it elects to hold its hearings and 
any continuations.  The city must not select dates that conflict 
with the county hearing dates or with those elected by or 
assigned to the school districts in which the city is located.

REVENUES.] For the second fiscal year of each biennium, the 
commissioner of revenue shall make adjustments in aid amounts so 
that the anticipated total obligations of the local government 
trust fund are equal to anticipated total revenues. 
    In the event that anticipated total obligations of the 
trust fund exceed anticipated total revenues, each 
jurisdiction's aid will be reduced as provided under section 
477A.0132.  For fiscal year 1993 only, if reductions are 
necessary in an amount greater than $6,700,000, the additional 
reduction for the shortfall beyond $6,700,000 will be applied 
only to aids under section 477A.013. 
    In the event that anticipated total obligations of the 
trust fund are less than anticipated total revenues, aid amounts 
for the following programs will be proportionately increased to 
bring anticipated total expenditures into conformance with 
anticipated total revenues: 
    (1) local government aid and equalization aid under section 
477A.013; 
    (2) community social services aid under section 256E.06;

before all aid amounts have been paid, all remaining aid 
payments will be increased or decreased proportionately.

21, as amended by 1992 H.F. No. 2694, article 7, section 27, if 
enacted, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 21.  [MENTAL HEALTH OR CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY 
ADMISSIONS; RATES.] Mental health and chemical dependency 
inpatient hospital services for a hold or commitment ordered by 
the court Admissions under the general assistance medical care 
program occurring on or after July 1, 1990, and admissions under 
medical assistance, excluding general assistance medical care, 
occurring on or after July 1, 1990, and on or before September 
30, 1992, that are classified to a diagnostic category of mental 
health or chemical dependency shall have rates established 
according to the methods of subdivision 14, except the per day 
rate shall be multiplied by a factor of 2, provided that the 
total of the per day rates shall not exceed the per admission 
rate.  This methodology shall also apply when a hold or 
commitment is ordered by the court for the days that inpatient 
hospital services are medically necessary.  Stays which are 
medically necessary for inpatient hospital services and covered 
by medical assistance shall not be billable to any other 
governmental entity.  Medical necessity shall be determined 
under criteria established to meet the requirements of section 
256B.04, subdivision 15, or 256D.03, subdivision 7, paragraph 
(b). 
    Sec. 36.  [CORRECTION 68; APPROPRIATION.] 1992 H.F. No. 
2694, article 4, section 59, subdivision 3, if enacted, is 
amended to read: 
    Subd. 3.  [CONDITIONS; COVERAGE.] An employee who is 
eligible both for the health insurance benefit under this 
section and for an early retirement incentive under a collective 
bargaining agreement or personnel plan established by the 
employer must select either the early retirement incentive in 
the collective bargaining agreement, or personnel plan, or the 
incentive provided under this section, but may not receive 
both.  For purposes of this section, a person retires when the 
person terminates active employment and applies for retirement 
benefits.  The retired employee is eligible for single and 
dependent coverages and employer payments to which the person 
was entitled immediately before retirement, subject to any 
changes in coverage and employer and employee payments through 
collective bargaining or personnel plans, for employees in 
positions equivalent to the position from which the employee 
retired.  The retired employee is not eligible for employer-paid 
life insurance.  Eligibility ceases when the retired employee 
attains the age of 65, or when the employee chooses not to 
receive the retirement benefits for which the employee has 
applied, or when the employee is eligible for employer-paid 
health insurance from a new employer.  Coverages must be 
coordinated with relevant health insurance benefits provided 
through the federally sponsored Medicare program.  Nothing in 
this section obligates, limits, or otherwise affects the right 
of the University of Minnesota to provide employer-paid 
hospital, medical, dental benefits, and life insurance to any 
person. 
    Sec. 37.  [CORRECTION 70; MERCURY.] 1992 H.F. No. 2147,
