the record.  The provider may exclude from the health record 
written speculations about the patient's health condition,

    Sec. 16.  Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 168.33, 
subdivision 2, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 2.  [POWERS.] The registrar shall have the power to 
appoint, hire and discharge and fix the compensation of the 
necessary employees, in the manner provided by law, as may be 
required to enable the registrar to properly carry out the 
duties imposed by the provisions of this chapter.  As of April 
14, 1976, The registrar may appoint, and for cause discontinue, 
a deputy registrar for any city as the public interest and 
convenience may require, without regard to whether the county 
auditor of the county in which the city is situated has been 
appointed as the deputy registrar for the county or has been 
discontinued as the deputy registrar for the county, and without 
regard to whether the county in which the city is situated has 
established a county license bureau which issues motor vehicle 
licenses as provided in section 373.32. 
    Effective August 1, 1976, The registrar may appoint, and 
for cause discontinue, a deputy registrar for any city as the 
public interest and convenience may require, if the auditor for 
the county in which the city is situated chooses not to accept 
appointment as the deputy registrar for the county or is 
discontinued as a deputy registrar, or if the county in which 
the city is situated has not established a county license bureau 
which issues motor vehicle license as provided in section 
373.32.  Any person appointed by the registrar as a deputy 
registrar for any city shall be a resident of the county in 
which the city is situated. 
     The registrar may appoint, and for cause discontinue, the 
county auditor of each county as a deputy registrar.  Upon 
approval of the county board, the auditor, with the approval of 
the director of motor vehicles, may appoint, and for cause 
discontinue, the clerk or equivalent officer of each city or any 
other person as a deputy registrar as public interest and 
convenience may require, regardless of the appointee's county of 
residence.  Notwithstanding any other provision, a person other 
than a county auditor or a director of a county license bureau, 
who was appointed by the registrar before August 1, 1976, as a 
deputy registrar for any city, may continue to serve as deputy 
registrar and may be discontinued for cause only by the 
registrar.  The county auditor who appointed the deputy 
registrars shall be responsible for the acts of deputy 
registrars appointed by the auditor.  Each such deputy, before 
entering upon the discharge of duties, shall take and subscribe 
an oath to faithfully discharge the duties and to uphold the 
laws of the state.  If a deputy registrar appointed hereunder is 
not an officer or employee of a county or city, such deputy 
shall in addition give bond to the state in the sum of $10,000, 
or such larger sum as may be required by the registrar, 
conditioned upon the faithful discharge of duties as deputy 
registrar.  A corporation governed by chapter 302A may be 
appointed a deputy registrar.  Upon application by an individual 
serving as a deputy registrar and the giving of the requisite 
bond as provided in subdivision 2, personally assured by the 
individual or another individual approved by the commissioner of 
public safety, a corporation named in an application shall 
become the duly appointed and qualified successor to the deputy 
registrar.  Each deputy registrar appointed hereunder shall keep 
and maintain, in a convenient public place within the place for 
which appointed, a registration and motor vehicle tax collection 
bureau, to be approved by the registrar, for the registration of 
motor vehicles and the collection of motor vehicle taxes 
thereon.  The deputy registrar shall keep such records and make 
such reports to the registrar as that officer, from time to 
time, may require.  Such records shall be maintained at the 
facility of the deputy registrar.  The records and facilities of 
the deputy registrar shall at all times be open to the 
inspection of the registrar or the registrar's agents.  The 
deputy registrar shall report to the registrar by the next 
working day following receipt all registrations made and taxes 
and fees collected by the deputy registrar.  The filing fee 
imposed pursuant to subdivision 7 shall be deposited in the 
treasury of the place for which appointed, or if not a public 
official, such deputy shall retain the filing fee, but the 
registration tax and any additional fees for delayed 
registration the deputy registrar has collected the deputy 
registrar shall deposit by the next working day following 
receipt in an approved state depository to the credit of the 
state through the state treasurer.  The place for which the 
deputy registrar is appointed through its governing body shall 
provide the deputy registrar with facilities and personnel to 
carry out the duties imposed by this subdivision if such deputy 
is a public official.  In all other cases, the deputy shall 
maintain a suitable facility for serving the public.

reasonably necessary for the performance of administrative 
functions common to all divisions of the department.

care under the income maintenance programs. 
     (12) Have the authority to conduct and administer

administering assistance and services to recipients or potential 
recipients of public welfare.  To carry out such experimental 
projects, it is further provided that the commissioner of human 
services is authorized to waive the enforcement of existing 
specific statutory program requirements, rules, and standards in 
one or more counties.  The order establishing the waiver shall 
provide alternative methods and procedures of administration, 
shall not be in conflict with the basic purposes, coverage, or 
benefits provided by law, and in no event shall the duration of 
a project exceed four years.  It is further provided that no 
order establishing an experimental project as authorized by the 
provisions of this section shall become effective until the 
following conditions have been met:

families with dependent children, medical assistance, or food 
stamp program in the following manner:  
     (a) One-half of the total amount of the disallowance shall 
be borne by the county boards responsible for administering the 
programs.  For the medical assistance and AFDC programs, 
disallowances shall be shared by each county board in the same 
proportion as that county's expenditures for the sanctioned 
program are to the total of all counties' expenditures for the 
AFDC and medical assistance programs.  For the food stamp 
program, sanctions shall be shared by each county board, with 50 
percent of the sanction being distributed to each county in the 
same proportion as that county's administrative costs for food 
stamps are to the total of all food stamp administrative costs 
for all counties, and 50 percent of the sanctions being 
distributed to each county in the same proportion as that 
county's value of food stamp benefits issued are to the total of 
all benefits issued for all counties.  Each county shall pay its 
share of the disallowance to the state of Minnesota.  When a 
county fails to pay the amount due hereunder, the commissioner 
may deduct the amount from reimbursement otherwise due the 
county, or the attorney general, upon the request of the 
commissioner, may institute civil action to recover the amount 
due. 
     (b) Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (a), if the 
disallowance results from knowing noncompliance by one or more 
counties with a specific program instruction, and that knowing 
noncompliance is a matter of official county board record, the 
commissioner may require payment or recover from the county or 
counties, in the manner prescribed in paragraph (a), an amount 
equal to the portion of the total disallowance which resulted 
from the noncompliance, and may distribute the balance of the 
disallowance according to paragraph (a).  
     (15) Develop and implement special projects that maximize 
reimbursements and result in the recovery of money to the 
state.  For the purpose of recovering state money, the 
commissioner may enter into contracts with third parties.  Any 
recoveries that result from projects or contracts entered into 
under this paragraph shall be deposited in the state treasury 
and credited to a special account until the balance in the 
account reaches $400,000.  When the balance in the account 
exceeds $400,000, the excess shall be transferred and credited 
to the general fund.  All money in the account is appropriated 
to the commissioner for the purposes of this paragraph. 
     (16) Have the authority to make direct payments to 
facilities providing shelter to women and their children 
pursuant to section 256D.05, subdivision 3.  Upon the written 
request of a shelter facility that has been denied payments 
under section 256.05 256D.05, subdivision 3, the commissioner 
shall review all relevant evidence and make a determination 
within 30 days of the request for review regarding issuance of 
direct payments to the shelter facility.  Failure to act within 
30 days shall be considered a determination not to issue direct 
payments.

commissioner shall consider proposals by counties and vendors 
for prepaid health plans, competitive bidding programs, block 
grants, or other vendor payment mechanisms designed to provide 
services in an economical manner or to control utilization, with 
safeguards to ensure that necessary services are provided.  
Before implementing prepaid programs in counties with a county 
operated or affiliated public teaching hospital or a hospital or 
clinic operated by the University of Minnesota, the commissioner 
shall consider the risks the prepaid program creates for the 
hospital and allow the county or hospital the opportunity to 
participate in the program in a manner that reflects the risk of 
adverse selection and the nature of the patients served by the 
hospital, provided the terms of participation in the program are 
competitive with the terms of other participants considering the 
nature of the population served.  Payment for services provided 
pursuant to this subdivision shall be as provided to medical 
assistance vendors of these services under sections 256B.02,

subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
    Subdivision 1.  [FILING.] (a) Claims for benefits shall be 
made in accordance with such rules as the commissioner may 
prescribe.  Each employer shall post and maintain printed 
statements of such rules in places readily accessible to 
individuals in the employer's service and shall make available 
to each such individual at the time of becoming unemployed, a 
printed statement of such rules.  Such printed statements shall 
be supplied by the commissioner to each employer without cost to 
the employer. 
     (b) Any employer upon separation of an employee from 
employment for any reason which may result in disqualification 
for benefits under section 268.09, shall furnish to such 
employee a separation notice which shall provide the employer's 
name, address, and employer account number as registered with 
the department, the employee's name and social security account 
number, the inclusive dates of employment, and the reason for 
the separation.  A copy of such separation notice shall be filed 
with the commissioner within seven days of such separation.  The 
commissioner shall require each individual filing a claim for 
benefits to establish a benefit year to furnish the reason for 
separation from all employers in the individual's base period. 
      (c) For the purpose of complying with section 268.04, 
subdivision 2, the commissioner may require all base period 
employers to provide such information as the commissioner may 
prescribe, including, but not limited to, wages paid during any 
part of the base period, whether or not such information was 
previously provided. 
     (d) Upon establishment of a benefit year, the commissioner 
shall give notice to the last employer for whom the individual 
worked and all base period employers.  The employer so notified 
shall have seven days after the mailing of the notice to file a 
protest to monetary entitlement or a protest raising an issue of 
ineligibility or disqualification. 
     (e) If, upon review of the wage information on file with 
the department, it is found that an employer failed to provide 
wage information for the claimant, the commissioner shall accept 
a claimant certification as to the wage credits earned, based 
upon the claimant's records, and issue a monetary determination 
of validity certification.  This determination may be modified 
based upon corrected information subsequently received from the 
employer or other sources.  The employer who failed to report 
the individual's wages or filed an erroneous report may be 
penalized in accordance with section 268.16 or 268.18.  In the 
absence of fraud, if a redetermination of validity of claim 
based on an employer's late corrected or erroneous report 
subsequently cancels or reduces the amount of benefits to which 
a claimant was entitled under the initial determination, the 
claimant shall not be required to make repayment to the fund of 
any benefits paid prior to such redetermination; and 
    (f) The commissioner shall determine any issue raised under 
paragraph (d) or by an employer's late report.  If an employer 
fails to file a separation notice within the time limits 
prescribed in paragraph (b), any relief from benefit charges 
provided by section 268.09, subdivision 1, clause (4) paragraph 
(e), shall apply to weeks of unemployment beginning after the 
filing of the late report or protest.

subdivision 4, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 4.  [INQUIRY INTO CHARGE.] (1) Consistent with clause 
(7), the commissioner shall promptly inquire into the truth of 
the allegations of the charge.  The commissioner shall make an 
immediate inquiry when a charge alleges actual or threatened 
physical violence.  The commissioner shall also make an 
immediate inquiry when it appears that a charge is frivolous or 
without merit and shall dismiss those charges. 
     The commissioner shall give priority to investigating and 
processing those charges, in the order below, which the 
commissioner determines have the following characteristics:  
     (a) there is evidence of irreparable harm if immediate 
action is not taken; 
     (b) there is evidence that the respondent has intentionally 
engaged in a reprisal; 
     (c) a significant number of recent charges have been filed 
against the respondent; 
     (d) the respondent is a government entity; 
     (e) there is potential for broadly promoting the policies 
of this chapter; or 
     (f) the charge is supported by substantial and credible 
documentation, witnesses, or other evidence.  
     The commissioner shall inform charging parties of these 
priorities and shall tell each party if their charge is a 
priority case or not.  
     On other charges the commissioner shall make a 
determination within 12 months after the charge was filed as to 
whether or not there is probable cause to credit the allegation 
of unfair discriminatory practices, and 
     (2) If the commissioner determines after investigation that 
no probable cause exists to credit the allegations of the unfair 
discriminatory practice, the commissioner shall, within ten days 
of the determination, serve upon the charging party and 
respondent written notice of the determination.  Within ten days 
after receipt of notice, the charging party may request in 
writing, on forms prepared by the department, that the 
commissioner reconsider the determination.  The request shall 
contain a brief statement of the reasons for and new evidence in 
support of the request for reconsideration.  At the time of 
submission of the request to the commissioner, the charging 
party shall deliver or mail to the respondent a copy of the 
request for reconsideration.  The commissioner shall either 
reaffirm or reverse the determination of no probable cause 
within 20 days after receipt of the request for reconsideration, 
and shall within ten days notify in writing the charging party 
and respondent of the decision to reaffirm or reverse. 
     A decision by the commissioner that no probable cause 
exists to credit the allegations of an unfair discriminatory 
practice shall not be appealed to the court of appeals pursuant 
to section 363.072 or sections 14.63 to 14.68. 
     (3) If the commissioner determines after investigation that 
probable cause exists to credit the allegations of unfair 
discriminatory practices, the commissioner shall serve on the 
respondent and the respondent's attorney if the respondent is 
represented by counsel, by first class mail, a notice setting 
forth a short plain written statement of the alleged facts which 
support the finding of probable cause and an enumeration of the 
provisions of law allegedly violated.  If the commissioner 
determines that attempts to eliminate the alleged unfair 
practices through conciliation pursuant to subdivision 5 have 
been or would be unsuccessful or unproductive, the commissioner 
shall issue a complaint and serve on the respondent, by 
registered or certified mail, a written notice of hearing 
together with a copy of the complaint, requiring the respondent 
to answer the allegations of the complaint at a hearing before 
an administrative law judge at a time and place specified in the 
notice, not less than ten days after service of said complaint.  
A copy of the notice shall be furnished to the charging party 
and the attorney general. 
     (4) If, at any time after the filing of a charge, the 
commissioner has reason to believe that a respondent has engaged 
in any unfair discriminatory practice, the commissioner may file 
a petition in the district court in a county in which the 
subject of the complaint occurs, or in a county in which a 
respondent resides or transacts business, seeking appropriate 
temporary relief against the respondent, pending final 
determination of proceedings under this chapter, including an 
order or decree restraining the respondent from doing or 
procuring an act tending to render ineffectual an order the 
commissioner may enter with respect to the complaint.  The court 
shall have power to grant temporary relief or a restraining 
order as it deems just and proper, but no relief or order 
extending beyond ten days shall be granted except by consent of 
the respondent or after hearing upon notice to the respondent 
and a finding by the court that there is reasonable cause to 
believe that the respondent has engaged in a discriminatory 
practice.  Except as modified by this section, the Minnesota 
rules of civil procedure shall apply to an application, and the 
district court shall have authority to grant or deny the relief 
sought on conditions as it deems just and equitable.  All 
hearings under this section shall be given precedence as nearly 
as practicable over all other pending civil actions. 
     (5) If a lessor, after engaging in a discriminatory 
practice defined in section 363.03, subdivision 2, clause 
(1)(a), leases or rents a dwelling unit to a person who has no 
knowledge of the practice or of the existence of a charge with 
respect to the practice, the lessor shall be liable for actual 
damages sustained by a person by reason of a final order as 
provided in this section requiring the person to be evicted from 
the dwelling unit. 
     (6) In any complaint issued under this section, the 
commissioner may seek relief for a class of individuals affected 
by an unfair discriminatory practice occurring on or after a 
date 300 days one year prior to the filing of the charge from 
which the complaint originates. 
    (7) The commissioner may adopt policies to determine which 
charges are processed and the order in which charges are 
processed based on their particular social or legal 
significance, administrative convenience, difficulty of 
resolution, or other standard consistent with the provisions of 
this chapter. 
    (8) The chief administrative law judge shall adopt policies 
to provide sanctions for intentional and frivolous delay caused 
by any charging party or respondent in an investigation, 
hearing, or any other aspect of proceedings before the 
department under this chapter.

of district court for the term next following.  In the event a

administrator of district court shall not be reduced during the

ORDER.] 
    To conserve and make more adequate use of our water

governmental subdivision, the state or any of its departments or 
agencies, the commissioner of natural resources, and the United 
States or any of its agencies, may petition for the installation 
of dams or other control works in drainage ditch systems to 
impound or divert waters for beneficial use.  The petition must 
be directed to the county board when a drainage system is wholly 
within one county and to the joint county board when the system 
affects two or more counties.  The petition must contain the 
location of the installation, plans, and specifications for the 
proposed structure and a map of the areas likely to be affected 
by the impoundment or diversion.  The petitioner shall agree to 
be responsible for the cost of installation and construction of 
the structure.  Upon filing the petition, the petitioners shall 
file a bond as provided in sections 106A.205 and 106A.211 
section 106A.202, subdivisions 5 and 6.  No bond is required if 
the petition is filed by the state, any of its departments or 
agencies, the commissioner of natural resources, the United 
States or any of its agencies, and cities.  The petition must 
also be accompanied by a permit from the commissioner of natural 
resources as required in sections 105.41 and 105.42.  
     On receipt of the petition, bond, and permit, if required, 
the board or court shall appoint an engineer to investigate the 
effect of the proposed installation and file a report of 
findings.  Upon filing of the engineer's report, notice must be 
given and a public hearing held as provided in section 
106A.261.  If at this hearing it appears from the engineer's 
report and other evidence presented that the installation will 
be of a public or private benefit and that it will not impair 
the utility of the ditch or deprive affected land owners of its 
benefit, the board or court shall issue a permit authorizing its 
installation.  Before installing or constructing an impoundment 
or diversion, the petitioner shall obtain rights-of-way and 
flowage easements from owners of land to be affected by it. 
     The order of the court modifying the ditch system must 
provide that construction and later maintenance and repairs of 
the ditch modification must be done by the petitioner without 
cost to the owners of lands and properties previously within the 
drainage system. 
    Sec. 7.  Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 122.23, 
subdivision 18, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 18.  (a) If no board is provided for under the 
foregoing provision, upon receipt of the assigned identification 
number, the county auditor shall determine a date, not less than 
20 nor more than 60 days from the date of the receipt of the 
assigned identification number, upon which date shall be held a 
special election in the district for the purpose of electing a 
board of six members for terms as follows:  two until the July 1 
one year after the effective date of the consolidation, two 
until the expiration of one year from said July 1, and two until 
the expiration of two years from said July 1, to hold office 
until a successor is elected and qualifies according to 
provisions of law governing the election of board members in 
independent districts.  If the resolution or petition for 
consolidation pursuant to subdivision 2 proposed that the board 
of the newly created district consists of seven members, then 
seven members shall be elected at this election for the terms 
provided in this clause except that three members shall hold 
office until the expiration of two years from said July 1.  If 
the resolution or petition for consolidation pursuant to 
subdivision 2 proposed the establishment of separate election 
districts, these members shall be elected from separate election 
districts according to the provisions of that resolution or 
petition and of section 123.32 chapter 205A. 
    (b) The county auditor shall give ten days' posted notice 
of election in the area in which the election is to be held and 
also if there be a newspaper published in the proposed new 
district, one weeks' published notice shall be given.  The 
notice shall specify the time, place and purpose of the election.
    (c) The county may pay the election judges not to exceed $1 
per hour for their services. 
    (d) Any person desiring to be a candidate for a school 
election shall file an application with the county auditor to 
have the applicant's name placed on the ballot for such office, 
specifying the term for which the application is made.  The 
application shall be filed not less than 12 days before the 
election. 
    (e) The county auditor shall prepare, at the expense of the 
county, necessary ballots for the election of officers, placing 
thereon the names of the proposed candidates for each office.  
The ballots shall be marked and signed as official ballots and 
shall be used exclusively at the election.  The county auditor 
shall determine the number of voting precincts and the 
boundaries of each.  The county auditor shall determine the 
location of polling places and the hours the polls shall be open 
and shall appoint three election judges for each polling place 
who shall act as clerks of election.  Election judges shall 
certify ballots and results to the county auditor for tabulation 
and canvass. 
    (f)  After making a canvass and tabulation, the county 
auditor shall issue a certificate of election to the candidate 
for each office who received the largest number of votes cast 
for the office.  The county auditor shall deliver such 
certificate to the person entitled thereto by certified mail, 
and each person so certified shall file an acceptance and oath 
of office with the county auditor within 30 days of the date of 
mailing of the certificate.  A person who fails to qualify prior 
to the time specified shall be deemed to have refused to serve, 
but such filing may be made at any time before action to fill 
vacancy has been taken. 
    (g) The board of each district included in the new enlarged 
district shall continue to maintain school therein until the 
effective date of the consolidation.  Such boards shall have 
power and authority only to make such contracts, to do such 
things as are necessary to maintain properly the schools for the 
period prior to that date, and to certify to the county auditor 
according to levy limitations applicable to the component 
districts the taxes collectible in the calendar year when the 
consolidation becomes effective. 
    (h) It shall be the immediate duty of the newly elected 
board of the new enlarged district, when the members thereof 
have qualified and the board has been organized, to plan for the 
maintenance of the school or schools of the new district for the 
next school year, to enter into the necessary negotiations and 
contracts for the employment of personnel, purchase of equipment 
and supplies, and other acquisition and betterment purposes, 
when authorized by the voters to issue bonds under the 
provisions of chapter 475; and on the effective date of the 
consolidation to assume the full duties of the care, management 
and control of the new enlarged district.  The board of the new 
enlarged district shall give due consideration to the 
feasibility of maintaining such existing attendance centers and 
of establishing such other attendance centers, especially in 
rural areas, as will afford equitable and efficient school 
administration and assure the convenience and welfare of the 
pupils residing in the enlarged district.  The obligations of 
the new board to teachers employed by component districts shall 
be governed by the provisions of section 122.532. 
    Sec. 8.  Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 122.96,

education district.  The date of the election, the question to 
be submitted, and all other necessary conduct of the election 
shall be fixed by the board.  The election shall be conducted 
and canvassed under the direction of the education district 
board in accordance with section 123.32 chapter 205A, insofar as

(2); for fiscal year 1990, the amount of the deduction shall be 
one-third of the difference between clauses (1) and (2); for 
fiscal year 1991, the amount of the deduction shall be one-half 
of the difference between clauses (1) and (2); for fiscal year 
1992, the amount of the deduction shall be four-sixths of the 
difference between clauses (1) and (2); and for fiscal year 
1993, the amount of the deduction shall be five-sixths of the 
difference between clauses (1) and (2). 
    Sec. 10.  Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 124A.27, 
subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
    Subdivision 1.  [REQUIREMENT.] An amount equal to 2.20 
percent of the basic revenue under section 124A.22, subdivision 
2, shall be reserved and may be used only to provide one or more 
of the programs enumerated in this section.  The school board 
shall determine which programs to provide, the manner in which 
they will be provided, and the extent to which other money may 
be used for the programs.  Except for the requirements of 
sections 124A.28 and 124A.29, the remaining general education 
revenue under section 124A.22 and supplemental revenue under 
section 124A.25 may be used to provide one or more of the 
programs enumerated in this section.

their respective school boards and are subject to recall by a 
majority vote of the appointing board.  The election of members 
is governed by section 123.32 chapter 205A.  Board members shall

    Sec. 20.  Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 157.03, is

    Each year every person, firm, or corporation engaged in the 
business of conducting an hotel, motel, restaurant, lodging 
house, boarding house, or resort, or place of refreshment, or 
who shall hereafter engage in conducting any such business, 
except vending machine operators licensed under the license 
provisions of sections 28A.01 to 28A.16, must procure a license 
for each hotel, motel, restaurant, lodging house, boarding 
house, or resort, or place of refreshment so conducted.  For any 
hotel, motel, resort, campground, or manufactured home park as 
defined in section 327.15, in which food, fountain, or bar 
service is furnished, one license, in addition to the hotel, 
resort, manufactured home park, or campground license, shall be 
sufficient for all restaurants and places of refreshment 
conducted on the same premises and under the same management 
with the hotel, motel, resort, manufactured home park, or 
campground.  Each license shall expire and be renewed as 
prescribed by the commissioner pursuant to section 144.122.  Any 
proprietor who operates a place of business after the expiration 
date without first having made application for a license and 
without having made payment of the fee thereof shall be deemed 
to have violated the provisions of this chapter and be subject 
to prosecution, as provided in this chapter.  In addition 
thereto, a penalty in an amount prescribed by the commissioner 
pursuant to section 144.122 shall be added to the amount of the 
license fee and paid by the proprietor, as provided herein, if 
the application has not reached the office of the state 
commissioner of health within 30 days following the expiration 
of license; or, in the case of a new business, 30 days after the 
opening date of the business.  The state commissioner of health 
shall furnish to any person, firm, or corporation desiring to 
conduct an hotel, motel, restaurant, lodging house, boarding 
house, or resort, or place of refreshment an application blank 
to be filled out by the person, firm, or corporation, for a 
license therefor, which shall require the applicant to state the 
full name and address of the owner of the building, structure, 
or enclosure, the lessee and manager of the hotel, motel, 
restaurant, lodging house, boarding house, or resort, or place 
of refreshment, the location of the same, the name under which 
the business is to be conducted, and any other information as 
may be required therein by the state commissioner of health to 
complete the application for license.  The application shall be 
accompanied by a license fee as hereinafter provided. 
      For hotels, motels, lodging houses, and resorts the license 
fee may be graduated according to the number of sleeping rooms 
and the amount of the fees shall be prescribed by the state 
commissioner of health pursuant to section 144.122. 
      For restaurants, places of refreshment, and boarding houses 
the license fee may be based on the average number of 
employees.  If the license fee is so computed, the commissioner 
shall consider each full-time employee as one employee and each 
part-time employee as that fraction of one employee as the 
number of months the employee is employed is to the 12 months of 
the year.  Employees shall include all persons, except children 
of the licensee under the age of 18, at work in any capacity, 
either voluntary or paid, and whether or not reported under the 
labor laws of this state. 
    If the license fee is based upon the average number of 
employees, every licensee shall, at the time of application, 
certify as to the number of employees on forms provided by the 
state commissioner of health and the state commissioner of 
health shall have access, on demand, to any and all employment 
records for purposes of substantiating or correcting numbers of 
declared employees. 
    License fees for restaurants, places of refreshment, and 
boarding houses shall be in an amount prescribed by the state 
commissioner of health pursuant to section 144.122. 
    No school, as defined in sections 120.05 and 120.10,

    Subd. 2.  The department may: 
    (1) Make necessary investigations to procure information 
required to carry out the provisions of sections 168A.01 to

necessary or appropriate to require the payment of fees imposed 
by sections 168.30 and section 168.54, as a condition for 
deferring application for a certificate of title by a dealer or 
secured party in cases provided for in section 168A.11 or 
168A.12, subdivision 2.  Such rules shall permit the use of the 
"Transfer Filing Fee" stamp prescribed by section 168.54, when 
feasible.  
    (5) Adopt a rule which may require the owner or secured 
party, as the case may be, to deposit the certificate of title

such certificate was issued is registered pursuant to section 
168.31, subdivision 4, or is subject to the lien imposed by 
section 168.31, subdivision 6. 
    Sec. 22.  Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 168A.29,

subdivision 6, with respect to any prior transfer of ownership 
or registration of the vehicle shall have been paid. 
    Sec. 23.  Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 176.081, 
subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
    Subdivision 1.  (a) A fee for legal services of 25 percent 
of the first $4,000 of compensation awarded to the employee and 
20 percent of the next $27,500 of compensation awarded to the 
employee is permissible and does not require approval by the 
commissioner, compensation judge, or any other party except as 
provided in clause (b).  If the employer or the insurer or the 
defendant is given written notice of claims for legal services 
or disbursements, the claim shall be a lien against the amount 
paid or payable as compensation.  In no case shall fees be 
calculated on the basis of any undisputed portion of 
compensation awards.  Allowable fees under this chapter shall be 
based solely upon genuinely disputed portions of claims, 
including disputes related to the payment of rehabilitation 
benefits or to other aspects of a rehabilitation plan.  Fees for 
administrative conferences under section 176.242, 176.2421, 
176.243, or 176.244 176.239 shall be determined on an hourly 
basis, according to the criteria in subdivision 5.  
    (b) An attorney who is claiming legal fees under this 
section shall file a statement of attorney's fees with the 
commissioner, compensation judge before whom the matter was 
heard, or workers' compensation court of appeals on cases before 
the court.  A copy of the signed retainer agreement shall also 
be filed.  The employee and insurer shall receive a copy of the 
statement.  The statement shall be on a form prescribed by the 
commissioner and shall clearly and conspicuously state that the 
employee or insurer has ten calendar days to object to the 
attorney fees requested.  If no objection is timely made by the 
employee or insurer, the amount requested shall be conclusively 
presumed reasonable providing the amount does not exceed the 
limitation in subdivision 1.  The commissioner, compensation 
judge, or court of appeals shall issue an order granting the 
fees and the amount requested shall be awarded to the party 
requesting the fee.  
     If a timely objection is filed, or the fee is determined on 
an hourly basis, the commissioner, compensation judge, or court 
of appeals shall review the matter and make a determination 
based on the criteria in subdivision 5. 
     If no timely objection is made by an employer or insurer, 
reimbursement under subdivision 7 shall be made if the statement 
of fees requested this reimbursement. 
    Sec. 24.  Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 176.101, 
subdivision 3e, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 3e.  [END OF TEMPORARY TOTAL COMPENSATION; SUITABLE 
JOB.] (a) Ninety days after an employee has reached maximum 
medical improvement and the medical report described in clause 
(c) has been served on the employee, or 90 days after the end of 
an approved retraining program, whichever is later, the 
employee's temporary total compensation shall cease.  This 
cessation shall occur at an earlier date if otherwise provided 
by this chapter.  
    (b) If at any time prior to the end of the 90-day period 
described in clause (a) the employee retires or the employer 
furnishes work to the employee that is consistent with an 
approved plan of rehabilitation and meets the requirements of 
section 176.102, subdivision 1, or, if no plan has been 
approved, that the employee can do in the employee's physical 
condition and that job produces an economic status as close as 
possible to that the employee would have enjoyed without the 
disability, or the employer procures this employment with 
another employer or the employee accepts this job with another 
employer, temporary total compensation shall cease and the 
employee shall, if appropriate, receive impairment compensation 
pursuant to subdivision 3b.  This impairment compensation is in 
lieu of economic recovery compensation under subdivision 3a, and 
the employee shall not receive both economic recovery 
compensation and impairment compensation.  Temporary total 
compensation and impairment compensation shall not be paid 
concurrently.  Once temporary total compensation ceases no 
further temporary total compensation is payable except as 
specifically provided by this section.  
     (c) Upon receipt of a written medical report indicating 
that the employee has reached maximum medical improvement, the 
employer or insurer shall serve a copy of the report upon the 
employee and shall file a copy with the division.  The beginning 
of the 90-day period described in clause (a) shall commence on 
the day this report is served on the employee for the purpose of 
determining whether a job offer consistent with the requirements 
of this subdivision is made.  A job offer may be made before the 
employee reaches maximum medical improvement.  
     (d) The job which is offered or procured by the employer or 
accepted by the employee under clause (b) does not necessarily 
have to commence immediately but shall commence within a 
reasonable period after the end of the 90-day period described 
in clause (a).  Temporary total compensation shall not cease 
under this subdivision until the job commences.  
     (e) If the job offered under clause (a) is offered or 
procured by the employer and is not the job the employee had at 
the time of injury it shall be offered and described in writing. 
The written description shall state the nature of the job, the 
rate of pay, the physical requirements of the job, and any other 
information necessary to fully and completely inform the 
employee of the job duties and responsibilities.  The written 
description and the written offer need not be contained in the 
same document.  
    The employee has 14 calendar days after receipt of the 
written description and offer to accept or reject the job 
offer.  If the employee does not respond within this period it 
is deemed a refusal of the offer.  Where there is an 
administrative conference to determine suitability under 
subdivision 3v, or section 176.242 176.239, the period begins to 
run on the date of the commissioner's decision.  
    (f) Self-employment may be an appropriate job under this 
subdivision.  
    The commissioner shall monitor application of this 
subdivision and may adopt rules to assure its proper application.
    Sec. 25.  Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 176.421, 
subdivision 7, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 7.  [RECORD OF PROCEEDINGS.] At the division's own 
expense, the commissioner shall make a complete record of all 
proceedings before the commissioner and shall provide a 
stenographer or an audio magnetic recording device to make the 
record of the proceedings. 
    The commissioner shall furnish a transcript of these 
proceedings to any person who requests it and who pays a 
reasonable charge which shall be set by the commissioner.  Upon 
a showing of cause, the commissioner may direct that a 
transcript be prepared without expense to the person requesting 
the transcript, in which case the cost of the transcript shall 
be paid by the division.  Transcript fees received under this 
subdivision shall be paid to the workers' compensation division 
account in the state treasury and shall be annually appropriated 
to the division for the sole purpose of providing a record and 
transcripts as provided in this subdivision.  This subdivision 
does not apply to any administrative conference or other 
proceeding before the commissioner which may be heard de novo in 
another proceeding including but not limited to proceedings 
under section 176.102, 176.103, 176.242, or 176.243 176.101 or

    All purchases of, and contracts for, supplies, materials 
equipment or contractual services, and all sales of personal 
property which has become obsolete and unusable, shall be based 
wherever possible on competitive bids.  If the amount of the 
expenditure or sale is estimated to exceed $1,000, sealed bids 
shall be solicited by public notice inserted at least once in a 
newspaper of general circulation and at least five calendar days 
before the final date of submitting bids.  Such notice shall 
include a general description of the commodities or contractual 
services to be purchased, or personal property to be sold, and 
shall state where bid blanks and specifications may be obtained 
and the time and place for the opening of bids.  The county 
purchasing agent shall also solicit sealed bids by sending 
requests by mail to prospective suppliers and by posting notice 
on a public bulletin board in the purchasing agent's office. 
    All purchases or sales of less than $1,000 in amount shall 
be made in the open market without newspaper notice, but shall 
wherever possible be based on at least three competitive bids.  
    Sales shall be made to the highest responsible bidder.  
    Bids on purchases shall in all cases be based on such 
standard specifications as may be adopted by the board of 
standardization in accordance with the provisions of section 
383C.339.  The purchasing agent shall accept the lowest bid and 
award the contract to such lowest bidder unless the agent on 
account of the quality or character of the goods, materials, or 
supplies proposed to be furnished by the lowest bidder or 
because of the financial responsibility and reputation of said 
bidder, deems it not to the best advantage of the county to 
accept such bid, and, in the case of capital expenditures, the 
agent shall present to the county board, or to the interested 
board or commission, as the case may be, a written statement of 
the reasons why such lowest bid should not be accepted and shall 
advise the appropriate body which bid in the purchasing agent's 
judgment is to the best advantage of the county, and the county 
board or such interested board or commission, may thereupon 
concur with the agent to accept the recommended bid or reject 
all bids.  All bids may be rejected and new bids solicited if 
the public interest shall be served thereby.  If all bids 
received on a pending contract are for the same unit price or 
total amount, the county purchasing agent shall have authority 
to award the contract to one of the tie bidders by drawing lots 
in public, or to reject all bids and to purchase the required 
supplies, materials, equipment or contractual services in the 
open market, provided the price paid in the open market shall 
not exceed the lowest responsible bid.  It shall be the duty of 
the purchasing agent to discourage uniform bidding and to 
endeavor to obtain as full and open competition as possible on 
all purchases and sales.  Each bid, with the name of the bidder, 
shall be entered on a record, and each record with the 
successful bid indicated thereon, shall, after the award of the 
order or contract, be open to public inspection.  
    All contracts shall be approved as to form by the county 
attorney and a copy of each contract shall be filed with the 
county auditor of any such county.
