        BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 2000, section 97A.133, 
        subdivision 3, is amended to read: 
           Subd. 3.  [ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLE TRAVEL WITHIN DESIGNATED 
        WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREAS.] (a) On lands acquired by the state 
        under chapter 84A that are designated after January 1, 1986, as 
        wildlife management areas, the commissioner shall, by January 
        15, 2003 2004, identify and, designate corridor, and sign at 
        least 90 miles of all-terrain vehicle trails, not including 
        public roads that are maintained and open to travel by other 
        noncommercial vehicles, in corridors of disturbance that: 
           (1) the commissioner determines are appropriate to connect 
        trails, forest roads established under section 89.71, 
        subdivision 1, and public highways to provide reasonable travel 
        for all-terrain vehicles; or 
           (2) are areas of historic all-terrain vehicle use, 
        including trails that end within a wildlife management area. 
           The designated trails must be either within or contiguous 
        to the wildlife management areas.  The commissioner shall 
        consult with wildlife management area users, including both 
        motorized and nonmotorized trail users, in identifying and 
        designating corridor trails under this paragraph.  Corridor 
        Trail establishment must be in compliance with other state and 
        federal law.  Local governments and other trail sponsors may 
        propose the designation of corridor trails, including the 
        designation as a grant-in-aid trail for the purposes of funding 
        under section 84.927, subdivision 2. 
           (b) The following forest roads shall be open to travel by 
        all-terrain vehicles when the roads are open to other 
        noncommercial vehicles: 
           (1) the Rapid River forest road, beginning at the west 
        boundary of the Red Lake wildlife management area at the 
        southwest corner of Section 7, Township 156 North, Range 35 
        West, Beltrami county, thence in an easterly and northeasterly 
        direction through the Red Lake wildlife management area to the 
        east boundary of the Red Lake wildlife management area at the 
        southwest corner of Section 7, Township 157 North, Range 33 
        West, Lake of the Woods county; 
           (2) the Blanchard forest road, beginning at the junction of 
        the North Shore Road along the northern shore of Upper Red Lake 
        and the Blanchard state forest road at the west section line of 
        Section 30, Township 155 North, Range 31 West, Beltrami county, 
        thence in a westerly direction to the west section line of 
        Section 31, Township 155 North, Range 32 West; and 
           (3) the Moose River forest road, beginning at the junction 
        of Dick's Parkway state forest road and the Moose River state 
        forest road at the southwest corner of Section 31, Township 36 
        West, Range 158 North, thence in a westerly direction along the 
        Moose River state forest road to the junction of Beltrami county 
        road 706; and 
           (4) the existing west access road to the Moose River dike, 
        which is included in meeting the required all-terrain vehicle 
        trail mileage specified in paragraph (a). 
           (c) The commissioner shall sign each road and trail 
        designated under this subdivision indicating the motorized uses 
        allowed. 
           (d) During the regular firearms deer season, on all 
        wildlife management area lands within the area described in 
        paragraph (e), a person licensed to take deer may operate an 
        all-terrain vehicle: 
           (1) before legal shooting hours; 
           (2) after legal shooting hours; and 
           (3) from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. 
           (e) Paragraph (d) applies from where state highway No. 1 
        intersects the west boundary of the Red Lake Indian Reservation, 
        then West to state highway No. 219, then North on state highway 
        No. 219 to state highway No. 89, then North on state highway No. 
        89 to county highway No. 6, then East on county highway No. 6 to 
        county highway No. 54 and county highway No. 1 
        (Beltrami/Marshall county line) then North along the 
        Beltrami/Marshall county line to Roseau county line, then East

        Indian Reservation, then West and South following the boundary 
        of the Red Lake Indian Reservation to where it intersects state 
        highway No. 1. 
           (d) (f) For the purposes of this subdivision, "corridors of 
        disturbance" means rights-of-way such as ditches, ditch banks, 
        transmission lines, pipelines, permanent roads, winter roads, 
        and recreational trails.  The existence of a corridor of 
        disturbance eligible for corridor designation may be 
        demonstrated by physical evidence, document recorded in the 
        office of the county recorder or other public official, aerial 
        survey, or other evidence similar to the above.  Cross-country 
        motorized use of land shall not cause that land to be considered 
        a corridor of disturbance. 
           Sec. 2.  Minnesota Statutes 2001 Supplement, section 
        297A.94, is amended to read: 
           297A.94 [DEPOSIT OF REVENUES.] 
           (a) Except as provided in this section, the commissioner 
        shall deposit the revenues, including interest and penalties, 
        derived from the taxes imposed by this chapter in the state 
        treasury and credit them to the general fund.  
           (b) The commissioner shall deposit taxes in the Minnesota 
        agricultural and economic account in the special revenue fund if:
           (1) the taxes are derived from sales and use of property 
        and services purchased for the construction and operation of an 
        agricultural resource project; and 
           (2) the purchase was made on or after the date on which a 
        conditional commitment was made for a loan guaranty for the 
        project under section 41A.04, subdivision 3. 
        The commissioner of finance shall certify to the commissioner 
        the date on which the project received the conditional 
        commitment.  The amount deposited in the loan guaranty account 
        must be reduced by any refunds and by the costs incurred by the 
        department of revenue to administer and enforce the assessment 
        and collection of the taxes.  
           (c) The commissioner shall deposit the revenues, including 
        interest and penalties, derived from the taxes imposed on sales 
        and purchases included in section 297A.61, subdivision 3, 
        paragraph (g), clauses (1) and (4), in the state treasury, and 
        credit them as follows: 
           (1) first to the general obligation special tax bond debt 
        service account in each fiscal year the amount required by 
        section 16A.661, subdivision 3, paragraph (b); and 
           (2) after the requirements of clause (1) have been met, the 
        balance to the general fund. 
           (d) The commissioner shall deposit the revenues, including 
        interest and penalties, collected under section 297A.64, 
        subdivision 5, in the state treasury and credit them to the 
        general fund.  By July 15 of each year the commissioner shall 
        transfer to the highway user tax distribution fund an amount 
        equal to the excess fees collected under section 297A.64, 
        subdivision 5, for the previous calendar year. 
           (e) For fiscal year 2001, 97 percent; for fiscal years 2002 
        and 2003, 87 percent; and for fiscal year 2004 and 
        thereafter, 88.5 87.1 percent of the revenues, including 
        interest and penalties, transmitted to the commissioner under 
        section 297A.65, must be deposited by the commissioner in the 
        state treasury as follows: 
           (1) 50 percent of the receipts must be deposited in the 
        heritage enhancement account in the game and fish fund, and may 
        be spent only on activities that improve, enhance, or protect 
        fish and wildlife resources, including conservation, 
        restoration, and enhancement of land, water, and other natural 
        resources of the state; 
           (2) 22.5 percent of the receipts must be deposited in the 
        natural resources fund, and may be spent only for state parks 
        and trails; 
           (3) 22.5 percent of the receipts must be deposited in the 
        natural resources fund, and may be spent only on metropolitan 
        park and trail grants; 
           (4) three percent of the receipts must be deposited in the 
        natural resources fund, and may be spent only on local trail 
        grants; and 
           (5) two percent of the receipts must be deposited in the 
        natural resources fund, and may be spent only for the Minnesota 
        zoological garden, the Como park zoo and conservatory, and the 
        Duluth zoo. 
           (f) The revenue dedicated under paragraph (e) may not be 
        used as a substitute for traditional sources of funding for the 
        purposes specified, but the dedicated revenue shall supplement 
        traditional sources of funding for those purposes.  Land 
        acquired with money deposited in the game and fish fund under 
        paragraph (e) must be open to public hunting and fishing during 
        the open season, except that in aquatic management areas or on 
        lands where angling easements have been acquired, fishing may be 
        prohibited during certain times of the year and hunting may be 
        prohibited.  At least 87 percent of the money deposited in the 
        game and fish fund for improvement, enhancement, or protection 
        of fish and wildlife resources under paragraph (e) must be 
        allocated for field operations. 
           Sec. 3.  Minnesota Statutes 2001 Supplement, section 
        477A.14, is amended to read: 
           477A.14 [USE OF FUNDS.] 
           Subdivision 1.  [GENERAL DISTRIBUTION.] Except as provided 
        in subdivision 2 or in section 97A.061, subdivision 5, 40 
        percent of the total payment to the county shall be deposited in 
        the county general revenue fund to be used to provide property 
        tax levy reduction.  The remainder shall be distributed by the 
        county in the following priority:  
           (a) 37.5 cents, as adjusted for inflation under section 
        477A.145, for each acre of county-administered other natural 
        resources land shall be deposited in a resource development fund 
        to be created within the county treasury for use in resource 
        development, forest management, game and fish habitat 
        improvement, and recreational development and maintenance of 
        county-administered other natural resources land.  Any county 
        receiving less than $5,000 annually for the resource development 
        fund may elect to deposit that amount in the county general 
        revenue fund; 
           (b) From the funds remaining, within 30 days of receipt of 
        the payment to the county, the county treasurer shall pay each 
        organized township 30 cents, as adjusted for inflation under 
        section 477A.145, for each acre of acquired natural resources 
        land and each acre of land described in section 477A.12, 
        subdivision 1, paragraph (b), and 7.5 cents, as adjusted for 
        inflation under section 477A.145, for each acre of other natural 
        resources land located within its boundaries.  Payments for 
        natural resources lands not located in an organized township 
        shall be deposited in the county general revenue fund.  Payments 
        to counties and townships pursuant to this paragraph shall be 
        used to provide property tax levy reduction, except that of the 
        payments for natural resources lands not located in an organized 
        township, the county may allocate the amount determined to be 
        necessary for maintenance of roads in unorganized townships.  
        Provided that, if the total payment to the county pursuant to 
        section 477A.12 is not sufficient to fully fund the distribution 
        provided for in this clause, the amount available shall be 
        distributed to each township and the county general revenue fund 
        on a pro rata basis; and 
           (c) Any remaining funds shall be deposited in the county 
        general revenue fund.  Provided that, if the distribution to the 
        county general revenue fund exceeds $35,000, the excess shall be 
        used to provide property tax levy reduction. 
           Subd. 2.  [DISTRIBUTION FOR CONSOLIDATED CONSERVATION 
        LANDS.] In the case of payments for consolidated conservation 
        land, at least 15 percent of the amount paid on account of that 
        land under section 477A.12 must be distributed to the county for 
        use as provided in section 84A.51, subdivision 4, clause (1).  
        The remainder of the payment under section 477A.12 will be 
        distributed in proportion to the distributions described in 
        subdivision 1.
