        Subd. 3.  Wastewater Infrastructure                            
        Funding Program                                      18,319,000 
        $10,409,000 of this appropriation is 
        from the general fund of which $319,000 
        is to administer the wastewater 
        infrastructure fund program. 
        To the public facilities authority for 
        grants to eligible municipalities under 
        the wastewater infrastructure program 
        established in Minnesota Statutes, 
        section 446A.072. 
        To the greatest extent practical, the 
        authority should use the grants for 
        projects on the 2000 intended use plan 
        in priority order to qualified 
        applicants that submit plans and 
        specifications to the pollution control 
        agency or receive a funding commitment 
        from USDA rural development before 
        December 1, 2001. In determining 
        whether the penalty factor under 
        Minnesota Rules, part 7077.0196, should 
        be applied to a project, the pollution 
        control agency shall, beginning with 
        the 2001 Intended Use Plan and Project 
        Priority list, first assess the impact 
        of the new or expanded discharge 
        compared to the impact of the 
        preexisting conditions and to the 
        impact of alternative discharge 
        locations.  If the agency determines 
        that the new or expanded discharge is 
        to a less environmentally sensitive 
        area or that it is the preferable 
        location for the discharge compared to 
        the alternatives, the agency shall not 
        apply the penalty factor to the project.
        The pollution control agency shall 
        include as a factor in prioritizing 
        projects whether a project is a 
        multijurisdictional project connecting 
        areas with failing onsite treatment 
        systems with an existing or regional 
        wastewater treatment system. 
        The authority shall set aside up to 
        $400,000 for the Innovative Technology 
        Grants Program to provide 50 percent 
        reimbursement for the cost of equipment 
        and installation into an existing 
        municipal wastewater treatment system.  
        The project must be approved by the 
        pollution control agency and 
        demonstrate the application of existing 
        technology that has not been used 
        before in the treatment of municipal 
        wastewater, but has the potential to 
        improve the treatment of wastewater or 
        make the treatment process more cost 
        effective. 
        Beginning with the 2001 intended use 
        plan, the pollution control agency 
        shall include whether a community has a 
        moratorium on development as a factor 
        in prioritizing projects.  The agency 
        shall adopt rules implementing the 
        provisions of this paragraph under 
        Minnesota Statutes, section 14.389.

        political subdivisions to construct or rehabilitate facilities 
        for early childhood programs, with priority to centers in 
        counties or municipalities with the highest percentage of 
        children living in poverty.  The commissioner may also make 
        grants to state agencies and political subdivisions to construct 
        or rehabilitate facilities for crisis nurseries or parenting 
        time centers.  The facilities must be owned by the state or a 
        political subdivision, but may be leased under section 16A.695 
        to organizations that operate the programs.  The commissioner 
        must prescribe the terms and conditions of the leases.  A grant 
        for an individual facility must not exceed $200,000 for each 
        program that is housed in the facility, up to a maximum of

        $50,000 must utilize youthbuild under sections 268.361 to 
        268.366 or other youth employment and training programs for the 
        labor portion of the construction.  Eligible programs must

        education and training.  State appropriations must be matched on 
        a 50 percent basis with nonstate funds.  The matching 
        requirement must apply programwide and not to individual grants.

        facility, regardless of the amount of the capital expenditure 
        required to design, acquire, construct, remodel, improve, 
        furnish, or equip the facility.  The commissioner must not 
        approve an application for a magnet school grant for any 
        facility unless the facility receives a favorable review and 
        comment under section 123B.71 and the participating districts: 
           (i) establish a joint powers board under section 471.59 to 
        represent all participating districts and govern the magnet 
        school facility; 
           (ii) design the planned magnet school facility to meet the 
        applicable requirements contained in Minnesota Rules, chapter 
        3535; 
           (iii) submit a statement of need, including reasons why the 
        magnet school will facilitate integration and improve learning; 
           (iv) prepare an educational plan that includes input from 
        both community and professional staff; and 
           (v) develop an education program that will improve learning 
        opportunities for students attending the magnet school. 
           (2) The districts may develop a plan that permits social 
        service, health, and other programs serving students and 
        community residents to be located within the magnet school 
        facility.  The commissioner shall consider this plan when 
        preparing a review and comment on the proposed facility.  
           (c) When two or more districts enter into an agreement 
        establishing a joint powers board to govern the magnet school 
        facility, all member districts shall have the same powers.  
           (d) A joint powers board of participating school districts 
        established under paragraphs (b) and (c) that intends to apply 
        for a grant must adopt a resolution stating the costs of the 
        proposed project, the purpose for which the debt is to be 
        incurred, and an estimate of the dates when the contracts for 
        the proposed project will be completed.  A copy of the 
        resolution must accompany any application for a state grant 
        under this section. 
           (e)(1) The commissioner shall examine and consider all 
        grant applications.  If the commissioner finds that any joint 
        powers district is not a qualified grant applicant, the 
        commissioner shall promptly notify that joint powers board.  The 
        commissioner shall make awards to no more than two qualified 
        applicants whose applications have been on file with the 
        commissioner more than 30 days.  
           (2) A grant award is subject to verification by the joint 
        powers board under paragraph (f).  A grant award must not be 
        made until the participating districts determine the site of the 
        magnet school facility.  If the total amount of the approved 
        applications exceeds the amount of grant funding that is or can 
        be made available, the commissioner shall allot the available 
        amount equally between the approved applicant districts.  The 
        commissioner shall promptly certify to each qualified joint 
        powers board the amount, if any, of the grant awarded to it. 
           (f) Each grant must be evidenced by a contract between the 
        joint powers board and the state acting through the 
        commissioner.  The contract obligates the state to pay to the 
        joint powers board an amount computed according to paragraph 
        (e)(2) and a schedule, and terms and conditions acceptable to 
        the commissioner of finance. 
           (g) Notwithstanding the provisions of section 123B.02, 
        subdivision 3, the joint powers and its individual members may 
        enter into long-term lease agreements as part of the magnet 
        school program.

        users from using the library's Internet access to view, print, 
        or distribute material that is obscene within the meaning of 
        section 617.241.

        the University of Minnesota, and the Minnesota state colleges 
        and universities, the community colleges, and the technical 
        colleges shall each develop, for legislative and executive 
        branch acceptance, its highest budget priorities in accordance 
        with statewide objectives for higher education.  It is the 
        intent of the legislature to appropriate at least 67 percent of 
        the total cost of instruction after adjusting for inflation and 
        enrollment changes.  However, in the event of a budget 
        shortfall, or if funding of inflation is not possible, available 
        funding shall first be applied to the agreed upon budget 
        priorities.

           (3) updating facilities to meet contemporary needs; 
           (4) providing geographic distribution of capital projects; 
        and 
           (5) maximizing the use of nonstate contributions. 
           Sec. 51.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 136F.36,

        build, sell, or transfer personal property and may purchase or 
        otherwise acquire real property that it does not intend to use 
        as a permanent educational site.  The board may, upon the terms

        otherwise dispose of real property acquired under this section.  
        A sale shall, transfer, or other disposition must be for at

        resulting from public bidding, public auction, or negotiations 
        between unrelated parties acting in their self-interest is fair 
        market value.  Where real property acquired under this section 
        cannot be sold for fair market value, the board may lease the

        own, the landowner shall may compensate the board for the fair 
        market value, nominal consideration, or without consideration as 
        may be agreed on between the parties, of the board's 
        contribution to the improvements.  No other authorizing 
        legislation or legislative approval is required for an 
        acquisition, improvement, or sale under this section.  Proceeds 
        from the sale, lease, or improvement of real property under this 
        section are appropriated to the board.

           Sec. 54.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 136F.60, is 
        amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
           Subd. 4.  [TRANSFER OF STATE COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY-OWNED 
        IMPROVEMENTS.] The board may sell, transfer, or otherwise 
        dispose of an improvement located on state-owned lands, the 
        compensation for which shall be determined by the board.  The 
        sale, transfer, or disposition must be accomplished by a bill of 
        sale describing the improvement transferred and the terms and 
        conditions of the sale or transfer.  Proceeds from the sale,

           Sec. 55.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 136F.64, 
        subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
           Subdivision 1.  [GENERAL AUTHORITY; CONSTRUCTION; 
        IMPROVEMENTS.] (a) Specific legislative authority is not 
        required for repairs or minor capital projects financed with 
        operating appropriation or institutional receipts that: 
           (1) are undertaken for asset preservation or code 
        compliance purposes; or 
           (2) do not materially increase the net square footage of 
        the institution; and 
           (3) do not materially increase the costs of instructional 
        programs. 
           For any project under this section with a cost in excess of

        emergency exists, the board must notify the chair of the finance 
        committee of the senate, and the chairs of the ways and means 
        committee and the capital investment committee of the house in 
        writing before incurring any contractual obligations. 
           (b) The board shall supervise and control the preparation 
        of plans and specifications for the construction, alteration, 
        repair, or enlargement of state college and university 
        buildings, structures, and improvements for which appropriations 
        are made to the board.  The board shall advertise for bids and 
        award contracts in connection with the improvements, supervise 
        and inspect the work, approve necessary changes in the plans and 
        specifications, approve estimates for payment, and accept the

        subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
           Subdivision 1.  [ISSUANCE OF BONDS.] The board of trustees

        not exceeding $40,000,000, subject to the resolutions 
        authorizing its outstanding revenue bonds exceed $100,000,000, 
        and payable from the revenue appropriated to the fund 
        established by section 136F.94, and use the proceeds together 
        with other public or private money that may otherwise become 
        available to acquire land, and to acquire, construct, complete, 
        remodel, and equip structures or portions thereof to be used for 
        dormitory, residence hall, student union, food service, and 
        related parking purposes at the state universities.  Before 
        issuing the bonds or any part of them, the board shall consult 
        with and obtain the advisory recommendations of the chairs of 
        the house ways and means committee and the senate finance 
        committee about the facilities to be financed by the bonds.

        preclude the corporation from abandoning the condemnation of any 
        such property in any case where possession thereof has not been 
        taken. 
           (3) To construct and equip new armories as authorized

        thereof any bonds issued by the corporation as herein 
        authorized; provided, that any bonds so purchased shall

           (13) (14) The Minnesota state armory building commission 
        created under section 193.142 shall keep all money and credits 
        received by it as a single fund, to be designated as the 
        "Minnesota state armory building commission fund," with separate 
        accounts for each armory; and the commission may make transfers 
        of money from funds appertaining to any armory under its control 
        for use for any other such armory; provided such transfers shall 
        be made only from money on hand, from time to time, in excess of 
        the amounts required to meet payments of interest or principal 
        on bonds or other obligations appertaining to the armory to 
        which such funds pertain and only when necessary to pay expenses

        such other armory; provided further, no such transfer of any 
        money paid for the support of any armory by the municipality in 
        which such armory is situated shall be made by the commission. 
           (14) (15) The corporation created under section 193.142 may 
        designate one or more state or national banks as depositories of 
        its funds, and may provide, upon such conditions as the 
        corporation may determine, that the treasurer of the corporation 
        shall be exempt from personal liability for loss of funds 
        deposited in any such depository due to the insolvency or other 
        acts or omissions of such depository. 
           (15) (16) The governor is empowered to apply for grants of 
        money, equipment, and materials which may be made available to 
        the states by the federal government for leasing, building, and 
        equipping armories for the use of the military forces of the 
        state which are reserve components of the armed forces of the 
        United States, whenever the governor is satisfied that the 
        conditions under which such grants are offered by the federal 
        government, are for the best interests of the state and are not 
        inconsistent with the laws of the state relating to armories, 
        and to accept such grants in the name of the state.  The 
        Minnesota state armory building commission is designated as the 
        agency of the state to receive such grants and to use them for 
        armory purposes as prescribed in this chapter, and by federal 
        laws, and regulations not inconsistent therewith. 
           Sec. 58.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 246.18, 
        subdivision 7, is amended to read: 
           Subd. 7.  [USE OF CERTAIN REIMBURSEMENT FUNDS.] Except as 
        provided in subdivisions 2, 5, and 6, and unless otherwise 
        required by federal law, during any period in which bonds are 
        issued and outstanding under section 16A.67, all money received 
        from the federal government or other nonstate source for payment 
        or reimbursement of health care costs incurred at regional 
        treatment centers, state nursing homes, and other state 
        facilities as defined in section 246.50, subdivision 3, must be 
        credited to the special revenue fund created in section 16A.67, 
        subdivision 3.  Money credited to the special revenue fund must 
        be transferred to the debt service fund established in section 
        16A.67, subdivision 4, at the times and in the amounts 
        determined by order of the commissioner of finance to be 
        necessary to provide for the payment and security of bonds 
        issued pursuant to section 16A.67.  On or before the tenth day 
        of each month, any money in the special revenue fund not 
        required to be transferred to the debt service fund must be 
        transferred to the general fund.  Except as provided in 
        subdivisions 2, 5, and 6, and unless otherwise required by 
        federal law, if bonds are not issued and outstanding under 
        section 16A.67, all money received from the federal government 
        or other nonstate source for payment or reimbursement of health 
        care costs incurred at regional treatment centers, state nursing 
        homes, and other state facilities as defined in section 246.50, 
        subdivision 3, must be credited to the general fund. 
           Sec. 59.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 349A.10, 
        subdivision 5, is amended to read: 
           Subd. 5.  [DEPOSIT OF NET PROCEEDS.] Within 30 days after 
        the end of each month, the director shall deposit in the state 
        treasury the net proceeds of the lottery, which is the balance 
        in the lottery fund after transfers to the lottery prize fund 
        and credits to the lottery operations account.  Of the net 
        proceeds, 40 percent must be credited to the Minnesota 
        environment and natural resources trust fund, and during any 
        period in which bonds are issued and outstanding under section 
        16A.67, the remainder must be credited to the special revenue 
        fund created in section 16A.67, subdivision 3, provided that if 
        bonds are not issued and outstanding under section 16A.67, such 
        remainder must be credited to the general fund.  Money credited 
        to the special revenue fund must be transferred to the debt 
        service fund established in section 16A.67, subdivision 4, at 
        the times and in the amounts determined by the commissioner of 
        finance to be necessary to provide for the payment and security 
        of bonds issued pursuant to section 16A.67.  On or before the 
        tenth day of each month, any money in the special revenue fund 
        not required to be transferred to the debt service fund must be 
        transferred to the general fund. 
           Sec. 60.  Minnesota Statutes 1999 Supplement, section 
        446A.072, subdivision 4, is amended to read: 
           Subd. 4.  [FUNDING LEVEL.] (a) The authority shall provide 
        supplemental assistance for essential project component costs as 
        certified by the commissioner of the pollution control agency 
        under section 116.182, subdivision 4.  
           (b) Except as provided in paragraph (c), a municipality may 
        not receive more than $4,000,000, or $15,000 per existing 
        connection, whichever is less, under this section unless 
        specifically approved by law.  If a project would be eligible 
        for more than $4,000,000 under paragraph (e), the authority 
        shall include a description of the project and the financing 
        plan in its report on needs in subdivision 11. 
           (c) A sanitary district or multijurisdictional wastewater 
        treatment district may receive an additional $1,000,000 for each 
        municipality participating up to a maximum grant of $8,000,000, 
        unless a higher amount is specifically approved by law.  If a 
        project would be eligible for more than $8,000,000 under 
        paragraph (e), the authority shall include a description of the 
        project and the financing plan in its report on needs in 
        subdivision 11. 
           (d) The authority shall provide supplemental assistance for 
        up to one-half of the eligible grant funding level determined by 
        the United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development 
        funding for projects listed on the agency's project priority 
        list, in priority order.  In the case of multijurisdictional 
        projects when the United States Department of Agriculture Rural 
        Development is unable to fully fund up to one-half of the 
        eligible grant amount, the authority may provide up to an 
        additional $1,000,000 for each municipality participating up to 
        the limits under paragraph (c) but not to exceed the maximum 
        grant level determined by the United States Department of 
        Agriculture Rural Development as needed to keep the project 
        affordable.  For municipalities that are not eligible for United 
        States Department of Agriculture Rural Development funding for 
        wastewater, the authority shall provide supplemental assistance 
        for:  (1) essential project component costs calculated by first 
        determining the amount needed to reduce a municipality's annual 
        residential sewer costs to 1.4 percent of the municipality's 
        median household income or $25 per month per household, 
        whichever is greater, and then multiplying that amount by 80 
        percent to determine the actual award amount to supplement loans 
        under section 446A.07; and (2) up to 50 percent of the 
        incremental costs specifically identified by the agency as being 
        attributable to more stringent wastewater standards required to 
        protect outstanding resource value waters or outstanding 
        international resource value waters. 
           (e) Notwithstanding paragraph (b), in the event that a 
        municipality's monthly residential sewer service charges average 
        above $50, the authority will provide 90 percent of the grant 
        amount needed to reduce the average monthly sewer service charge 
        to $50, provided the project is ranked in the top 50 percentile 
        of the agency's intended use plan. 
           (f) The authority shall provide supplemental assistance to 
        a municipality that would not otherwise qualify for supplemental 
        assistance if: 
           (1) the municipality voluntarily accepts a sewer connection 
        from another governmental unit to serve residential, industrial, 
        or commercial developments that were completed before March 1, 
        1996, or are on lots whose plats were recorded before that date; 
        and 
           (2) fees charged by the municipality for the connection 
        must take into account state and federal grants used by the 
        municipality for the construction of the treatment plant. 
        The amount of supplemental assistance under this paragraph must 
        be sufficient to reduce debt service payments under section 
        446A.07 to an extent equivalent to a zero percent loan in an 
        amount up to the other governmental unit's project costs 
        necessary for connection.  Eligibility for supplemental 
        assistance under this paragraph ends three years after the 
        agency certifies that the connection has met the operational 
        performance standards established by the agency. 
           Sec. 61.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 462A.202, 
        subdivision 2, is amended to read: 
           Subd. 2.  [TRANSITIONAL HOUSING.] The agency may make loans 
        with or without interest to cities and counties to finance the 
        acquisition, improvement, and rehabilitation of existing housing 
        properties or the acquisition, site improvement, and development 
        of new properties for the purposes of providing transitional 
        housing, upon terms and conditions the agency determines.  For 
        purposes of this section, "transitional housing" means housing 
        that is provided for a limited duration not exceeding 24 months, 
        except that up to one-third of the residents may live in the 
        housing for up to 36 months.  Preference must be given to cities 
        that propose to acquire properties being sold by the resolution 
        trust corporation or the department of housing and urban 
        development.  Loans under this subdivision are subject to the 
        restrictions in subdivision 7.

        5, is amended to read:

        fund the commissioner of finance on request of the governor 
        shall sell and issue bonds of the state in an amount up to
