                  An act relating to the metropolitan airports 
                  commission; prohibiting free parking; providing for 
                  the expiration of free parking cards; amending 
                  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 473.608, by adding a

        BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 473.608, is 
        amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
           Subd. 23.  [PARKING PRIVILEGES.] Except as otherwise 
        provided in this subdivision, the commission may not provide 
        free parking at the Minneapolis-Saint Paul international airport 
        terminal.  The commission may provide free parking to employees 
        and members of the commission who are at the terminal on 
        official business.  The commission may provide free parking at 
        the Minneapolis-Saint Paul international airport terminal for 
        persons who are not employees or members of the commission if 
        those persons are attending a meeting of the commission or 
        performing volunteer work in the terminal.  A card or pass 
        issued to provide free parking must have an expiration date of 
        no later than one year after the card or pass is issued.  The 
        commission shall require an expired card to be returned to the 
        commission or shall account for it in another manner.  The 
        commission shall maintain a record of who receives free parking 
        at the terminal, including the person's name, organization, 
        date, the dollar value of the free parking provided, and the 
        purpose for which the free parking was provided.  
           Sec. 2.  [EXISTING PARKING CARDS EXPIRE.] 
           All cards or passes authorizing free parking at the 
        Minneapolis-Saint Paul international airport terminal issued by 
        the commission before the effective date of this act, expire on 
        the effective date of this act.  The commission shall ensure 
        that all free parking cards or passes issued on or after the 
        effective date of this act are distinguishable from any cards or 
        passes previously issued.  The commission shall not honor 
        expired free parking cards or passes. 
           Sec. 3.  [APPLICATION.] 
           Sections 1 and 2 apply in the counties of Anoka, Carver, 
        Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington. 
           Sec. 4.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.] 
           Sections 1 to 3 are effective the day following their final 
        enactment.
