           Subd. 12.  [FIRE TRAINING ASH DISPOSAL.] The ash from a

        a structure is classified as demolition debris and may be 
        disposed in any permit-by-rule land disposal facility authorized 
        under agency rules or any permitted demolition land disposal 
        facility, with the consent of the disposal facility operator, if 
        a person certified by a Minnesota state college or university 
        fire safety center certifies in writing in advance to the 
        commissioner that the structure has been adequately prepared for 
        such a training exercise, taking into account all applicable 
        safety concerns and regulations, including pollution control 
        agency guidelines regarding the removal of hazardous materials 
        from training-burn structures before the training event. 
           Sec. 2.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.]
