system for one-third the amount that would otherwise need to be 
transferred with respect to infrastructure development those 
bonds sold to finance capital improvement projects at 
institutions under the control of the system; provided that, to 
the extent that the amount to be transferred is for payment of 
principal and interest on bonds sold to finance life safety

education systems for the transfer. 
    (b) After each sale of infrastructure development the 
bonds, the commissioner of finance shall notify the state board 
for vocational technical education, the state board for 
community colleges, the state university board, and the regents 
of the University of Minnesota of the amounts for which each 
system is responsible for each year for the life of the bonds.

net income from investment of infrastructure development those 
bond proceeds that must be allocated among the systems in 
proportion to the amount of principal and interest otherwise 
required to be paid by each.  Each higher education system shall 
pay its annual share of debt service payments to the 
commissioner of finance by December 1 each year.  If a higher 
education system fails to make a payment when due, the

from the higher education systems to the infrastructure

required on July 15 and January February 15 of each year, shall

period in those fiscal years the amount of reduction in the 
transfer to the highway user tax distribution trunk highway fund 
is insufficient to fund the appropriation under section 41A.09, 
subdivision 1 for that period, the commissioner shall transfer 
to the general fund from the highway user tax distribution trunk 
highway fund an additional amount sufficient to fund the 
appropriation for that period, but the additional amount so 
transferred to the general fund in a six-month period may not 
exceed the amount transferred to the highway user tax 
distribution trunk highway fund for that six-month period.*
