                  An act relating to county government; providing for 
                  client-directed support programs; amending Minnesota 
                  Statutes 2000, section 375.18, by adding a subdivision.
        BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 2000, section 375.18, is 
        amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
           Subd. 1c.  [CLIENT-DIRECTED SUPPORT PROGRAM.] 
        Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, a county board, at its 
        discretion, and upon approval by the department of human 
        services, may implement a client-directed support program that 
        authorizes responsible parties for county human services and 
        public health clients to expend public funds for the benefit of 
        the clients without complying with subdivision 1b or section 
        384.13, 471.38 or 471.391.  County boards opting to implement 
        the program according to this subdivision must have internal 
        accounting and administrative control procedures to ensure 
        proper disbursement of public funds.  The procedures must 
        include county-owned demand deposit accounts and periodic review 
        of the program by the county board. 
           Sec. 2.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.] 
           Section 1 is effective the day following final enactment.
