                  An act relating to public safety; prohibiting courts 
                  from modifying statutory sex offender registration 
                  requirements in criminal sentences and juvenile 
                  disposition orders; amending Minnesota Statutes 1998,

        BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 243.166, 
        subdivision 2, is amended to read: 
           Subd. 2.  [NOTICE.] When a person who is required to 
        register under subdivision 1, paragraph (a), is sentenced or 
        becomes subject to a juvenile court disposition order, the court 
        shall tell the person of the duty to register under this 
        section.  The court may not modify the person's duty to register 
        in the pronounced sentence or disposition order.  The court 
        shall require the person to read and sign a form stating that 
        the duty of the person to register under this section has been 
        explained.  The court shall forward the signed sex offender 
        registration form, the complaint, and sentencing documents to 
        the bureau of criminal apprehension.  If a person required to 
        register under subdivision 1, paragraph (a), was not notified by 
        the court of the registration requirement at the time of 
        sentencing or disposition, the assigned corrections agent shall 
        notify the person of the requirements of this section.  When a 
        person who is required to register under subdivision 1, 
        paragraph (c), is released from commitment, the treatment 
        facility shall notify the person of the requirements of this 
        section.  The treatment facility shall also obtain the 
        registration information required under this section and forward 
        it to the bureau of criminal apprehension.
