           If a state appropriation or grant for a capital project or 
        project phase is not sufficient, by itself, to complete the 
        project or project phase, and thus requires a commitment from 
        other sources: 
           (1) the commitment, including any required match, must be 
        in an amount that, when added to the appropriation or grant, is 
        sufficient to complete the project or project phase; and 
           (2) the appropriation or grant is not available until the 
        commissioner has determined that the commitment is sufficient. 
           In making the determination, the commissioner must apply

        principles, including those that are particularly applicable to

           (b) "Maximum current cash flow requirement" means the 
        commissioner's written estimate of the largest of the amounts by

        tax burden, the long-term feasibility of the project, the 
        suitability of the project, and the need for the project.  If 
        the total amount of the applications exceeds the amount that is 
        or can be made available, the commissioner shall award grants 
        according to the commissioner's judgment and discretion and 
        based upon a ranking of the projects according to the factors

        counties to apply for grants from the rural road safety account 
        and criteria to be used to select projects for funding.  The 
        commissioner shall establish these procedures and criteria in 
        consultation with representatives appointed by the Association 
        of Minnesota Counties.  Eligibility for project selection must

                             ADJUSTMENT OF GENERAL
                         OBLIGATION BOND AUTHORIZATIONS
           Section 1.  [TABLE OF ORIGINAL AND ADJUSTED 
        AUTHORIZATIONS.] 
           Column A lists the citation to each law authorizing general 
        obligation bonds since Laws 1983, chapter 323, section 6, to 
        which a further adjustment is being made in this section. 
           The original authorization amount in each law is shown in 
        column B opposite the citation of the law it appears in. 
           The original authorization amount in column B is hereby 
        adjusted to the amount shown in column C.  The adjustments 
        resulting in the column C amount reflect specific changes to an 
        authorization in law, executive vetoes sustained or not 
        challenged, administrative action reflecting cancellation and 
        abandonment of all or the unused balance from specific projects 
        for which the proceeds of authorized bonds were intended to be 
        used, and other action pursuant to law resulting in the adjusted 
        authorizations shown in column C.  The amounts shown in column C 
        are validated as the lawful adjusted authorization for the cited 
        law as of February 1, 2005, for all purposes for which the 
        authorization is required or used.
