                  An act relating to police civil service examinations; 
                  permitting periodic examinations; clarifying that 
                  qualified applicants may be added to eligible 
                  registers after inception; amending Minnesota Statutes 
                  2000, section 419.10. 
        BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 2000, section 419.10, is 
        amended to read: 
           419.10 [NOTICE OF EXAMINATIONS; CREATION OF ELIGIBLE 
        REGISTER; REMOVAL AND ADDITIONS.] 
           Subdivision 1.  [NOTICE OF EXAMINATIONS.] (a) Notice of the 
        time, place, and scope of each examination shall be given by 
        publication and posting as specified in section 419.06, and by 
        mailing such notice to each applicant upon the appropriate list 
        of the application register ten days in advance.  
           (b) The notice may provide that other examinations may be 
        administered from time to time during the life of the eligible 
        register, without an additional publication or ten-day notice, 
        to applicants meeting threshold requirements. 
           Subd. 2.  [CREATION OF ELIGIBLE REGISTER.] The names of 
        those found eligible upon examination, after giving credit for 
        character and previous successful experience, shall be entered 
        with their address and percentages on the eligible register.  
           Subd. 3.  [REMOVAL OF NAMES.] No name shall remain upon the 
        eligible register more than two years without a new application, 
        and, if the rules of the commission so require, a new 
        examination.  When a vacancy has been filled or new appointment 
        made, the names selected shall be stricken from the eligible 
        register and transferred to the service register.  
           Subd. 4.  [ADDITION OF NAMES.] If the notice under 
        subdivision 1, paragraph (b), is given at the time of initial 
        examination, additional examinations may be administered to 
        applicants meeting threshold requirements without an additional 
        publication or ten-day notice.  Applicants passing a later 
        examination shall be added to the eligible register in the order 
        of their standing relative to the remaining applicants on the 
        register.
