        BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 123B.09, is 
        amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
           Subd. 1a.  [SEX OFFENDER SCHOOL BOARD INELIGIBILITY.] A sex 
        offender who has been convicted of an offense for which 
        registration under section 243.166 is required is ineligible to 
        become a candidate for the office of school board member, as 
        defined in subdivision 1.  Ineligibility is determined by the 
        registration requirements in effect at the time the offender 
        files for office, not by the registration requirements, if any, 
        that were in effect at the time the offender was convicted. 
           Sec. 2.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 205A.06, is 
        amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
           Subd. 1b.  [SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER; SEX OFFENDER; INELIGIBLE 
        TO FILE AFFIDAVIT OF CANDIDACY.] A sex offender who has been 
        convicted of an offense for which registration is required under 
        section 243.166 is ineligible to become a candidate for the 
        office of school board member and may not file an affidavit of 
        candidacy for that office.  Ineligibility is determined by the 
        registration requirements in effect at the time the offender 
        files for office, not by the registration requirements, if any, 
        that were in effect at the time the offender was convicted.
