                  An act relating to crimes; repealing the law 
                  prohibiting endurance contests and striking a 
                  reference to it in law; amending Minnesota Statutes

        BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 2000, section 375.40, is 
        amended to read: 
           375.40 [COUNTY BOARD MAY LICENSE EXHIBITIONS AND SHOWS.] 
           A county board may license and regulate itinerant shows, 
        carnivals, circuses, endurance contests, and exhibitions of any 
        nature whatsoever, except those prohibited by section 624.66.  
        Sections 375.40 to 375.42 do not apply to shows, carnivals, 
        circuses, contests, and exhibitions held within the incorporated 
        limits of a city.  
           The fee for a license shall be fixed by the county board in 
        the amount it deems advisable.  
           The board may require, as a condition for granting the 
        license, the posting of a penal bond in the amount it shall 
        determine.  
           Application for a license shall be made on the form the 
        county board determines.  Upon approval of an application and 
        the payment of the license fee and the posting of the required 
        bond, the county auditor shall issue the license. 
           Sec. 2.  [REPEALER.] 
           Minnesota Statutes 2000, section 624.66, is repealed.
