BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA:

ARTICLE 1
GENERAL PROVISIONS

    Section 1. Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 3.97, subdivision 2, is amended to read:
    Subd. 2. Membership; terms; meetings; compensation; powers. The Legislative
Audit Commission consists of:
(1) three members of the senate appointed by the senate committee Subcommittee
on Committees of the Committee on Rules and Administration of the senate;
(2) three members of the senate appointed by the senate minority leader;
(3) three members of the house appointed by the speaker of the house; and
(4) three members of the house appointed by the house minority leader.
Members shall serve until replaced, or until they are not members of the legislative
body from which they were appointed. Appointing authorities shall fill vacancies on the
commission within 30 days of a vacancy being created.
The commission shall meet in January of each odd-numbered year to elect its chair
and vice-chair. They shall serve until successors are elected. The chair and vice-chair shall
alternate biennially between the senate and the house. The commission shall meet at the
call of the chair. The members shall serve without compensation but be reimbursed for
their reasonable expenses as members of the legislature. The commission may exercise
the powers prescribed by section 3.153.

    Sec. 2. Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 13.632, subdivision 1, is amended to read:
    Subdivision 1. Beneficiary and survivor data. The following data on beneficiaries
and survivors of the Minneapolis Teachers Retirement Fund Association, the St. Paul
Teachers Retirement Fund Association, and the Duluth Teachers Retirement Fund
Association members are private data on individuals: home address, date of birth, direct
deposit number, and tax withholding data.

    Sec. 3. Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 13.871, is amended by adding a subdivision
to read:
    Subd. 10. Discharge and dismissal records. Data contained in discharge and
dismissal records are classified under section 609.3751, subdivision 5.

    Sec. 4. Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 37.21, subdivision 1, is amended to read:
    Subdivision 1. Liquor prohibited. Except as provided under Laws 2003, chapter
126, section 29, as amended by Laws 2005, chapter 25, section 6, no person may sell,
barter, give away, or otherwise dispose of or introduce, have, or keep for barter, gift,
or sale, any intoxicating liquors of any kind upon or within one-half mile of the State
Fairgrounds, or aid and abet any of those acts. The presence and possession of any kind of
these liquors, in any quantity, upon the person or upon the premises leased or occupied
by any person within these limits is a public nuisance and is prima facie evidence of the
purpose of the person to barter, give away, or sell the liquor. Any person who violates this
section is guilty of a misdemeanor.

    Sec. 5. Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 85.054, subdivision 5, is amended to read:
    Subd. 5. Gooseberry Falls State Park. A state park permit is not required and a
fee must not be charged for motor vehicle entry or parking at the Class I highway rest

    Sec. 6. Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 115.55, subdivision 7, is amended to read:
    Subd. 7. Local standards. (a) Existing systems. Counties may adopt by ordinance
local standards that are less restrictive than the agency's rules in order to define an
acceptable existing system. The local standards may include soil separation, soil
classification, vegetation, system use, localized well placement and construction, localized
density of systems and wells, extent of area to be covered by local standards, groundwater
flow patterns, and existing natural or artificial drainage systems. The local standards
and criteria shall be submitted to the commissioner for comment prior to adoption to
demonstrate that, based on local circumstances in that jurisdiction, they adequately protect
public health and the environment.
(b) New or replacement systems. Counties, after providing documentation of
conditions listed in this paragraph to the commissioner, may adopt by ordinance local
standards that are less restrictive than the agency's rules for new system construction or
replacement in areas of sustained and projected low population density where conditions
render conformance to applicable requirements difficult or otherwise inappropriate.
Documentation may include a map delineating the area of the county to be served by the
local standards, a description of the hardship that would result from strict adherence to the
agency's rules, and evidence of sustained and projected low population density. The local
standards must protect human health and the environment and be based on considerations
that may include, but need not be limited to, soil separation, soil classification, vegetation,
system use, localized well placement and construction, localized density of systems
and wells, extent of area to be covered by local standards, groundwater flow patterns,
and existing natural or artificial drainage systems. The local standards must provide
cost-effective and long-term treatment alternatives. The draft ordinance incorporating
the local standards must be submitted to the local water planning advisory committee,
created under section 103B.321, subdivision 3, and then submitted with justification to the
commissioner 30 days before adoption for review and comment.
(c) New or replacement systems; local ordinances. A local unit of government
may adopt and enforce ordinances or rules affecting new or replacement individual
sewage treatment systems that are more restrictive than the agency's rules. A local unit
of government may not adopt or enforce an ordinance or rule if its effect is to prevent or
delay recording with the county recorder or registrar of titles of a deed or other instrument
that is otherwise entitled to be recorded.
(d) Local standards; conflict with state law. Local standards adopted under
paragraph (a) or (b) must not conflict with any requirements under other state laws or rules
or local ordinances, including, but not limited to, requirements for:
(1) systems in shoreland areas, regulated under sections 103F.201 to 103F.221;
(2) well construction and location, regulated under chapter 103I; and
(3) systems used in connection with food, beverage, and lodging establishments,
regulated under chapter 157.
The local standards must include references to applicable requirements under other state
laws or rules or local ordinances.

    Sec. 7. Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 115A.193, is amended to read:
115A.193 REPORT ON FACILITY DEVELOPMENT.
The commissioner shall prepare a report concerning the development of a
stabilization and containment facility. The report must include:
(a) a conceptual plan that describes and evaluates the proposed design and
operation of the facility, including an evaluation of technical feasibility, a description and
evaluation of the types and quantities of hazardous waste and nonhazardous residual waste
from hazardous waste processing that the facility would be designed to accept, and a
description and evaluation of technologies needed or desired at the facility for processing,
stabilization, and containment, including above grade containment;
(b) procedures and standards for the operation of the facility that require the use of
reduction, recycling, and recovery of any hazardous waste before the waste is accepted for
stabilization when the alternative or additional management method is feasible and prudent
and would materially reduce adverse impact on human health and the environment;
(c) evaluation of the design and use of the facility for processing, stabilization, or
containment of industrial waste, including technical and regulatory issues and alternative
management methods;
(d) evaluation of feasible and prudent technologies that may substantially reduce the
possibility of migration of any hazardous constituents of wastes that the facility would be
designed to accept;
(e) a general analysis of the necessary and desirable physical, locational, and other
characteristics of a site for the facility;
(f) an evaluation of the prospects of and conditions required for the regulatory
delisting of residual waste from hazardous waste processing;
(g) an evaluation of the feasibility of an interstate, regional approach to the
management of hazardous waste; and
(h) an economic feasibility analysis of the development and operation of the facility,
including the anticipated use of the facility by Minnesota generators from within and
outside the state, and sources of private and public financing that may be available or
necessary for development or operation.
The commissioner shall submit a draft of the report to the agency and the Legislative
Commission on Waste Management by July 1, 1988, and before executing contracts
under section 115A.191.

    Sec. 8. Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 115A.9157, subdivision 5, is amended to read:

manufacturers or their representative organization shall implement permanent programs,
based on the results of the pilot projects required in Minnesota Statutes 1994, section

on the status of current incinerator ash management programs with recommendations for
specific legislation to meet the goals of subdivision 1.

prevent creation of an encumbrance upon fixtures under real property law.
(c) General rule: subordination of security interest in fixtures. In cases not
governed by subsections (d) through (h), a security interest in fixtures is subordinate
to a conflicting interest of an encumbrancer or owner of the related real property other
than the debtor.
(d) Fixtures purchase-money priority. Except as otherwise provided in subsection
(h), a perfected security interest in fixtures has priority over a conflicting interest of an
encumbrancer or owner of the real property if the debtor has an interest of record in or
is in possession of the real property and:
(1) the security interest is a purchase-money security interest;
(2) the interest of the encumbrancer or owner arises before the goods become
fixtures; and
(3) the security interest is perfected by a fixture filing before the goods become
fixtures or within 20 days thereafter.
(e) Priority of security interest in fixtures over interests in real property.
A perfected security interest in fixtures has priority over a conflicting interest of an
encumbrancer or owner of the real property if:
(1) the debtor has an interest of record in the real property or is in possession of
the real property and the security interest:
(A) is perfected by a fixture filing before the interest of the encumbrancer or owner
is of record; and
(B) has priority over any conflicting interest of a predecessor in title of the
encumbrancer or owner;
(2) before the goods become fixtures, the security interest is perfected by any method
permitted by this article and the fixtures are readily removable:
(A) factory or office machines;
(B) equipment that is not primarily used or leased for use in the operation of the
real property; or
(C) replacements of domestic appliances that are consumer goods;
(3) the conflicting interest is a lien on the real property obtained by legal or equitable
proceedings after the security interest was perfected by any method permitted by this
article; or
(4) the security interest is:
(A) created in a manufactured home in a manufactured home transaction; and
(B) perfected pursuant to a statute described in section 336.9-311(a)(2).
(f) Priority based on consent, disclaimer, or right to remove. A security interest
in fixtures, whether or not perfected, has priority over a conflicting interest of an
encumbrancer or owner of the real property if:
(1) the encumbrancer or owner has, in an authenticated record, consented to the
security interest or disclaimed an interest in the goods as fixtures; or
(2) the debtor has a right to remove the goods as against the encumbrancer or owner.
(g) Continuation of paragraph (f)(2) priority. The priority of the security interest
under paragraph (f)(2) continues for a reasonable time if the debtor's right to remove the
goods as against the encumbrancer or owner terminates.
(h) Priority of construction mortgage. A mortgage is a construction mortgage to
the extent that it secures an obligation incurred for the construction of an improvement on
land, including the acquisition cost of the land, if a recorded record of the mortgage so
indicates. Except as otherwise provided in subsections (e) and (f), a security interest in
fixtures is subordinate to a construction mortgage if a record of the mortgage is recorded
before the goods become fixtures and the goods become fixtures before the completion
of the construction. A mortgage has this priority to the same extent as a construction
mortgage to the extent that it is given to refinance a construction mortgage.
(i) Priority of security interest in crops. A perfected security interest in crops
growing on real property has priority over a conflicting interest of an encumbrancer or
owner of the real property except a perfected landlord's lien if the debtor has an interest of
record in or is in possession of the real property.
(j) Subsection (i) prevails. Subsection (i) prevails over any inconsistent provisions
of section 559.2091.

477A.0132, and 477A.03 directly to the affected taxing authorities annually. In addition,
the commissioner shall notify the authorities of their aid amounts, as well as the

distribution year.
(b) For the purposes of this subdivision, aid is determined for a city or town based
on its city or town status as of June 30 of the year preceding the aid distribution year. If
the effective date for a municipal incorporation, consolidation, annexation, detachment,
dissolution, or township organization is on or before June 30 of the year preceding
the aid distribution year, such change in boundaries or form of government shall be
recognized for aid determinations for the aid distribution year. If the effective date for a
municipal incorporation, consolidation, annexation, detachment, dissolution, or township
organization is after June 30 of the year preceding the aid distribution year, such change in
boundaries or form of government shall not be recognized for aid determinations until
the following year.
(c) Changes in boundaries or form of government will only be recognized for the
purposes of this subdivision, to the extent that: (1) changes in market values are included
in market values reported by assessors to the commissioner, and changes in population,
household size, and the road accidents factor are included in their respective certifications
to the commissioner as referenced in section 477A.011, or (2) an annexation information
report as provided in paragraph (d) is received by the commissioner on or before July 15

the aid calculation year are subject to correction within the time periods allowed under
subdivision 3.
(d) In the case of an annexation, an annexation information report may be completed
by the annexing jurisdiction and submitted to the commissioner for purposes of this
subdivision if the net tax capacity of annexed area for the assessment year preceding the
effective date of the annexation exceeds five percent of the city's net tax capacity for the
same year. The form and contents of the annexation information report shall be prescribed
by the commissioner. The commissioner shall change the net tax capacity, the population,
the population decline, the commercial industrial percentage, and the transformed
population for the annexing jurisdiction only if the annexation information report provides
data the commissioner determines to be reliable for all of these factors used to compute city
revenue need for the annexing jurisdiction. The commissioner shall adjust the pre-1940
housing percentage, the road accidents factor, and household size only if the entire area of
an existing city or town is annexed or consolidated and only if reliable data is available for
all of these factors used to compute city revenue need for the annexing jurisdiction.

    Sec. 30. Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 504B.321, subdivision 1, is amended to read:

against whom the complaint is made, unless it is not known, describing the premises of
which possession is claimed, stating the facts which authorize the recovery of possession,
and asking for recovery thereof.
(b) The lack of the full name and date of birth of the person against whom the
complaint is made does not deprive the court of jurisdiction or make the complaint invalid.
(c) The court shall issue a summons, commanding the person against whom the
complaint is made to appear before the court on a day and at a place stated in the summons.
(d) The appearance shall be not less than seven nor more than 14 days from the day

or school attendance and documentation of child care expenses from the obligee and
the public authority, if applicable.
    (b) If child care expenses fluctuate during the year because of the obligee's seasonal
employment or school attendance or extended periods of parenting time with the obligor,
the court must determine child care expenses based on an average monthly cost.
    (c) The amount allocated for child care expenses is considered child support but is
not subject to a cost-of-living adjustment under section 518A.515 518A.75.
    (d) The court may allow the parent with whom the joint child does not reside to
care for the joint child while the parent with whom the joint child resides is working or
attending school, as provided in section 518.175, subdivision 8. Allowing the parent with
whom the joint child does not reside to care for the joint child under section 518.175,
subdivision 8
, is not a reason to deviate from the guidelines.

    Sec. 32. Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 611.27, subdivision 13, is amended to read:

district public defender before being forwarded on a monthly basis to the state public
defender. In cases where adequate representation cannot be provided by the district public
defender and where counsel has been appointed under a court order, the state public
defender shall forward to the commissioner of finance all billings for services rendered
under the court order. The commissioner shall pay for services from county criminal
justice aid retained by the commissioner of revenue for that purpose under section
477A.0121, subdivision 4, or from county program aid retained by the commissioner of
revenue for that purpose under section 477A.0124, subdivision 1, clause (4), or 477A.03,
subdivision 2b
, paragraph (a).
The costs of appointed counsel and associated services in cases arising from new

obtaining court-ordered counsel.

all billings for transcripts and other necessary expenses. The commissioner shall pay for
these transcripts and other necessary expenses from county criminal justice aid retained
by the commissioner of revenue under section 477A.0121, subdivision 4, or from county
program aid retained by the commissioner of revenue for that purpose under section
477A.0124, subdivision 1, clause (4), or 477A.03, subdivision 2b, paragraph (a).
