                            CHAPTER 442-S.F.No. 3139 
                  An act relating to veterans homes; providing sales tax 
                  rebates are not income for the support test for 
                  residents; providing for programs to assist homeless 
                  or disabled veterans; amending Minnesota Statutes 
                  1998, section 198.03, subdivision 1; proposing coding 
                  for new law in Minnesota Statutes, chapter 198. 
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 198.03, 
        subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
           Subdivision 1.  [DISCRETIONARY ADMISSION.] Any person 
        otherwise eligible for admission to the Minnesota veterans 
        homes, except that the person has means of support, may, at the 
        discretion of the board, be admitted to one of the Minnesota 
        veterans homes upon entering into and complying with the terms 
        of a contract made by the person with the board, providing for 
        reasonable compensation to be paid by such person to the state 
        of Minnesota for care, support, and maintenance in the home.  
        Any earnings derived by the person from participating in a work 
        therapy program while the person is a resident of the home may 
        not be considered a means of support.  Refunds or rebates of 
        state sales taxes may not be considered a means of support. 
           Sec. 2.  [198.37] [TRANSITIONAL HOUSING.] 
           The board may establish programs to assist homeless or 
        disabled veterans on the campuses of the veterans homes.  The 
        board may use federal grant money for the Hastings veterans home 
        to purchase single-family dwellings, make necessary repairs and 
        improvements with the help of the department of administration, 
        and operate the program.  Continuation of these programs will be 
        contingent on the availability of federal funds. 
           Sec. 3.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.] 
           Section 1 is effective for tax refunds or rebates paid 
        after June 30, 1999. 
           Presented to the governor April 20, 2000
