                  An act relating to motor vehicles; clarifying power to 
                  appoint motor vehicle deputy registrars; amending

           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 373.35, 
        subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
           Subdivision 1.  The county auditor shall serve as the 
        director of the county license bureau or, if the auditor chooses 
        not to serve, the county board shall appoint any other county 
        officer or employee, or any other person, to serve as the 
        director upon the terms and conditions the county board deems 
        advisable.  The county board shall set the compensation of the 
        director and may provide for the expenses of the office 
        including the premium of any bond required to be furnished by 
        the director.  The director shall have the powers and duties 
        imposed on the county officer who previously had the authority 
        to issue or process the application for any license referred to 
        in section 373.32. 
           Notwithstanding section 168.33, subdivision 2, the 
        commissioner of public safety may appoint, and for cause 
        discontinue, the director as the deputy registrar of motor 
        vehicles in the county.  If appointed a deputy registrar the 
        director shall have the same authority as a county auditor to 
        appoint one or more deputy registrars as provided in section 
        168.33, subdivision 2.  If the director is a deputy registrar, 
        all provisions of section 168.33 and Minnesota Rules, chapter 
        7406, apply to a county license bureau.
