                            CHAPTER 360-S.F.No. 2789 
                  An act relating to counties; authorizing certain 
                  compensation to coroner, deputy coroner, coroner's 
                  investigator, or medical examiner; amending Minnesota 
                  Statutes 1998, section 382.18. 
        BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 382.18, is 
        amended to read: 
           382.18 [OFFICIALS NOT TO BE INTERESTED IN CONTRACTS.] 
           No county official, or deputy or clerk or employee of such 
        official; and no commissioner for tax-forfeited lands or 
        commissioner's assistants, shall be directly or indirectly 
        interested in any contract, work, labor, or business to which 
        the county is a party or in which it is or may be interested or 
        in the furnishing of any article to, or the purchase or sale of 
        any property, real or personal, by, the county, or of which the 
        consideration, price, or expense is payable from the county 
        treasury.  Nothing in this section shall prevent a person from 
        receiving reimbursement from a county for providing licensed or 
        tribally approved family foster care.  This section does not 
        prevent a coroner, deputy coroner, coroner's investigator, or 
        medical examiner from receiving compensation for professional 
        services from a professional corporation or medical provider 
        under contract to provide coroner services to a county.  Any 
        violation of the provisions of this section shall be a gross 
        misdemeanor.
