                             REVISOR'S BILL 
    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 10A.275, is 
amended to read: 
    10A.275 [MULTICANDIDATE POLITICAL PARTY EXPENDITURES.] 
    Notwithstanding any other provisions of Laws 1978, Chapter 
463 chapter 10A, the following expenditures by a state political 
party or a substate unit of a state political party as described 
in section 10A.27, subdivision 4, shall not be considered 
contributions to or expenditures on behalf of any candidate for 
the purposes of section 10A.25 or 10A.27, and shall not be 
allocated to any candidates pursuant to section 10A.22, 
subdivision 5: 
    (a) expenditures on behalf of candidates of that party 
generally without referring to any of them specifically in any 
advertisement published, posted or broadcast; 
    (b) expenditures for the preparation, display, mailing or 
other distribution of an official party sample ballot listing 
the names of three or more individuals whose names are to appear 
on the ballot; 
    (c) expenditures for any telephone conversation including 
the names of three or more individuals whose names are to appear 
on the ballot; or 
    (d) expenditures for any political party fundraising effort 
on behalf of three or more candidates. 
    Sec. 2.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 10A.31, 
subdivision 2, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 2.  The taxpayer may designate that the $1 $2 be paid 
into the account of a political party or into the general 
account. 
    Sec. 3.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 10A.335, is 
amended to read: 
    10A.335 [LEGISLATIVE MONITORING OF TAX CHECK-OFF.] 
    For the purpose of determining whether the distribution 
formula provided in section 10A.31, subdivision 5, (a) assures 
that moneys will be returned to the counties from which they 
were collected, and (b) continues to have a rational relation to 
the support for particular parties or particular candidates 
within legislative districts, it is the intention of this 
section that future legislatures monitor, using statistical data 
provided by the department of revenue, income tax returns and 
renter and homeowner property tax refund returns on which $1 $2, 
or in the case of a joint return, $2 $4, is designated for a 
political party. 
    Sec. 4.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 10A.32, 
subdivision 3b, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 3b.  As a condition of receiving a public subsidy for 
his election campaign in the form of tax credits against the tax 
due from individuals who contribute to his principal campaign 
committee a candidate shall agree by stating in writing to the 
board at any time beginning with the registration of his 
principal campaign committee that his expenditures and approved 
expenditures shall not exceed the expenditure limits as set 
forth in section 10A.25.  The agreement shall remain effective 
until the dissolution of the principal campaign committee of the 
candidate or the opening of filing for the next succeeding 
election for the office held or sought at the time of agreement, 
whichever occurs first.  An agreement signed under this 
subdivision may not be rescinded.  The commissioner of revenue 
shall not allow any individual or married couple filing jointly 
to take a credit against any tax due, pursuant to section 
290.06, subdivision 11, for any contribution to a candidate for 
legislative or statewide office who has not signed the agreement 
provided in this subdivision.  Nothing in this subdivision shall 
be construed to limit the campaign expenditure of any candidate 
who does not sign an agreement under this subdivision but 
accepts a contribution for which the contributor claims a credit 
against tax due.  The board shall forward a copy of any 
agreement signed under this subdivision to the commissioner of 
revenue.  The board shall make available to any candidate 
signing an agreement a supply of Official Tax Credit Receipt 
forms which state in bold face type that (a) a contributor who 
is given a receipt form is eligible to receive a credit against 
his tax due in an amount equal to 50 percent of his contribution 
but not more than $25 $50 for an individual, or not more than 
$50 $100 for a married couple filing jointly, and (b) that the 
candidate to whom he has contributed has voluntarily agreed to 
abide by campaign expenditure limits.  If a candidate does not 
sign an agreement under this subdivision he may not issue an 
Official Tax Credit Receipt form, or any facsimile thereof, to 
any of his contributors.  Any candidate who does not voluntarily 
agree to abide by the expenditure limits imposed in section 
10A.25 and who willfully issues Official Tax Credit Receipt 
forms, or any facsimile thereof, to any contributor is guilty of 
a misdemeanor. 
    Sec. 5.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 11A.24, 
subdivision 6, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 6.  [OTHER INVESTMENTS.] (a) In addition to the

    (3) State board participation in an investment vehicle 
shall be limited to 20 percent thereof; and 
    (4) State board participation in a limited partnership does 
not include a general partnership interest or other interest 
involving general liability.  The state board shall not engage 
in any activity as a limited partner which creates general 
liability.

certification pursuant to this section shall pay a fee of $20.  
The personnel department of employee relations and the 
commissioner or his designee may establish classes of 
certification that will recognize the varying complexities of 
code enforcement in the municipalities within the state.  Except

commissioner shall also fulfill any notice requirements 
prescribed by chapter 14 and rules of the hearing examiner

permitted by the laws of this state, by the adoption of a 
resolution to that effect by the affirmative vote of 
three-fourths of the members present, in person or by proxy, at 
a regular meeting of the members, or at any special meeting 
called for that expressly stated purpose, and by causing the 
resolution to be embraced in a certificate duly executed by its 
president and secretary or other presiding and recording 
officers, under its corporate seal, and approved, filed, 
recorded, and published in the manner prescribed by law for the 
execution, approval, filing, recording, and publishing of an

    (3) [BYLAWS.] The bylaws of any domestic insurance 
corporation without capital stock, in cases where the bylaws 
must be adopted or approved by the members thereof, may be

    (4) [CONVERSION OF A DOMESTIC MUTUAL INTO A STOCK INSURANCE 
CORPORATION.] A domestic mutual corporation may be converted 
into a stock insurance corporation as follows: 
    (a) [ACTION BY BOARD OF DIRECTORS.] The board of directors 
shall adopt a plan of conversion. 
    (b) [PLAN OF CONVERSION.] (i) The plan of conversion shall 
provide that, upon consummation of the conversion, each 
policyholder at the date of the passage of the resolution by the 
board of directors shall be entitled to such shares of stock of 
the new company as his equitable share of the surplus of the 
company will purchase.  This equitable share shall be determined 
by independent certified auditors or consulting actuaries and 
shall be subject to approval by the commissioner.  If a 
policyholder's equitable share of the surplus of the company 
produces a fractional share, the policyholder shall be given the 
option of either receiving the value of the fractional share in 
cash or of purchasing the fractional part of a share that will 
entitle him to a full share. 
    (ii) No shares of the corporation being organized shall be 
issued or subscribed for, formally or informally, directly or 
indirectly during the conversion except as authorized under 
subparagraph (i). 
    (iii) The corporation shall not pay compensation or 
remuneration of any kind to any person in connection with the 
proposed conversion, except at reasonable rates for printing 
costs, and for legal and other professional fees for services 
actually rendered. 
    (iv) The plan of conversion shall include a copy of the 
proposed articles of incorporation which shall comply with the 
requirements of chapter 300.  Except as otherwise specifically 
provided, the corporation resulting from conversion under this 
section shall be deemed to have been organized as of the date of 
issuance of the initial certificate of authority to the mutual 
corporation being converted. 
    (c) [APPROVAL BY POLICYHOLDERS.] Within 30 days after its 
adoption by the board of directors, the plan of conversion shall 
be submitted to the policyholders for approval by the 
affirmative vote of a majority of the policyholders entitled to 
vote, in the manner prescribed by subparagraph (1).  Every 
policyholder as of the date of the adoption under subparagraph 
(a) shall be entitled to one vote for each policy held by him.  
Only such policyholders shall be entitled to vote. 
    (d) [APPROVAL BY THE COMMISSIONER.] (i) Within 30 days 
after its adoption by the policyholders, the plan of conversion 
shall be submitted to the commissioner with an application for 
his approval. 
    (ii) The commissioner shall not approve if the value of 
single shares is set at a figure that substantially burdens 
policyholders who wish to purchase a fractional share under 
subparagraph (b)(i). 
    (iii) If the commissioner finds that the plan of conversion 
has been duly approved by the policyholders, that the conversion 
would not violate any law and would not be contrary to the 
interests of the policyholders, he shall approve the plan of 
conversion and shall issue a new certificate of authority to the 
corporation. 
    (e) [CONVERSION.] After filing an amendment of the articles 
of incorporation as provided by chapter 300, the corporation 
shall become a stock corporation and shall no longer be a mutual 
corporation, and the board of directors shall execute the plan 
of conversion. 
    (f) [SECURITIES REGULATION.] The filing with the department 
of securities of a certified copy of the plan of conversion as 
adopted by the policyholders and approved by the commissioner 
shall constitute registration under chapter 80 80A, of the 
securities authorized to be issued to policyholders thereunder.

revocation, or termination of the licensee's agent's license by 
the commissioner.  Upon receipt of the notice of suspension or 
revocation of a license, the licensee shall immediately deliver 
it to the commissioner.  
    (b) An agent whose resident or nonresident license is 
terminated as provided in subdivision 6b 6c, shall deliver the 
terminated license to the commissioner by personal delivery or 
by mail within 30 days after the date of termination.  
    (c) The commissioner may issue a duplicate license for any 
lost, stolen, or destroyed license issued pursuant to this

$3 by money order or cashier's check payable to the state

    Sec. 17.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 93.20, 
subdivision 9, is amended to read: 
    Subd. 9.  (1) The royalties to be paid by the part..... of 
the second part to the party of the first part on ore removed in 
each calendar year that this lease remains in force as 
hereinafter specified shall be increased or decreased for that 
calendar year in the same proportion that the market value of 
standard grade Mesabi Non-Bessemer iron ore containing 51.50 
percent iron, natural analysis, at lower lake ports, as of April 
first of that year, is increased or decreased above or below the 
corresponding market value of such standard ore that prevailed 
at the time of submission of the application for a prospecting 
permit on the mining unit covered by this lease; provided, that, 
in no case shall such royalties be less than the minimum 
royalties prescribed by law.  For the purposes hereof, the 
market value of such standard ore as of the date of application 
for a prospecting permit on the mining unit covered by this 
lease, as determined by the commissioner of natural resources, 
was .............  Dollars ($........).  As soon as practicable 
after April first of each year, the commissioner of natural 
resources shall determine the market value of such standard 
grade of Mesabi Non-Bessemer ore as of said date, shall file his 
order thereon in his office, shall file certified copies thereof 
in the offices of the state treasurer and commissioner of 
finance, and shall mail a certified copy thereof to the 
part..... of the second part.  The market value so determined 
shall govern for the purpose of computing royalties due under 
this lease on ore removed during such calendar year.  If such 
determination is not made in time for use in computing any such 
royalty, such royalty shall be computed and paid when due at the 
last rate theretofore in force under the provisions hereof, 
subject to adjustment as hereinafter provided.  Upon the 
determination by the commissioner of the applicable market value 
of ore, if it appears that the amount theretofore paid for any 
royalty subject to such determination was less or greater than 
the correct amount based on such determination, any deficiency 
in such payment shall be added to and paid together with the 
rental or royalty due at the next following quarterly payment 
date hereunder, and any excess in such payment shall be applied 
as a credit upon rentals or royalties subsequently due hereunder 
as the case may be. 
    (2) If the part..... of the second part shall dispute any 
determination by the commissioner of the market value of such 
standard ore, the royalties affected thereby shall nevertheless 
be paid when due at the rates based on such determination; 
provided, that upon making any such payment when due, the 
part..... of the second part may file with the commissioner a 
protest against such determination, specifying the amount 
alleged to be the true market value of such standard ore for the 
purpose of computing such royalty.  If the dispute involves the 
determination of the market value of such standard ore as of the 
date of application for a prospecting permit, as set forth in 
subdivision 9 (1) above, such protest shall be filed once only 
and then within 30 days after the first royalty payments are 
due.  Within 30 days after filing such protest, the part..... of 
the second part may bring an action against the commissioner in 
the district court for Ramsey county for a declaratory judgment 
determining the market value of the ore in dispute as stated in 
the protest.  Upon the taking effect of final judgment in such 
action, the value determined thereby shall supersede the value 
determined by the commissioner for the purposes hereof, and 
adjustment of the amounts paid or payable for royalties shall be 
made accordingly in like manner as hereinbefore provided upon 
determination of market value by the commissioner.  If such 
action is not brought within the time aforesaid, the 
commissioner's determination of market value shall be final.  In 
case the part..... of the second part shall be entitled to any 
adjustment on account of overpayment of royalties hereunder, and 
the rentals or royalties subsequently due on or before the 
termination of this lease are not sufficient to make such 
adjustment as hereinbefore provided, the excess of such 
royalties paid above the amount adjustable against subsequent 
rentals or royalties shall be refunded to the part..... of the 
second part as provided by Minnesota Statutes 1949, section 
6.136 16A.48.

of the state, under such restrictions, and on such dates as the

subdivision shall prevent a person from taking a bear to protect 
his property.  Such taking shall be reported to a conservation 
officer within 48 hours.  Bear so taken may thereafter be 
disposed of in the same manner as provided in section 97.50, 
subdivision 5, for the disposition of wild animals unlawfully 
taken.

established without the inclusion of said territory, and that 
said territory is not, in fact, a part of the watershed, the 
board may issue an order releasing the territory, or any part of 
said territory, as described in the petition.  No lands shall be 
released which have been determined subject to any benefits or 
damages for any improvement previously constructed.  The 
territory so released shall remain liable for its proportionate 
share of any indebtedness existing at the time of the order.

If the board shall determine that the order prescribing the 
distribution of managers should be amended following the

authorizing the withdrawal.

    Subd. 2.  [LICENSE REQUIREMENTS.] No person shall operate a 
motorcycle on any street or highway unless he has a valid 
standard driver's license with a two-wheeled vehicle endorsement 
as provided by law.  No such two-wheeled vehicle endorsement 
shall be issued unless the person applying therefor has in 
possession a valid two-wheeled vehicle instruction permit as 
provided herein, has passed a written examination and road test 
administered by the department of public safety for such 
endorsement, and, in the case of applicants under 18 years of 
age, shall present a certificate or other evidence of having 
successfully completed an approved two-wheeled vehicle driver's 
safety course in this or another state, in accordance with rules 
promulgated by the state board of education for courses offered 
through the public schools, or rules promulgated by the 
commissioner of public safety for courses offered by a private 
or commercial school or institute.  The commissioner of public 
safety may waive the road test for any applicant if he 
determines that the applicant possesses a valid license to 
operate a two-wheeled vehicle issued by a jurisdiction that 
requires a comparable road test for license issuance.  A 
two-wheeled vehicle instruction permit shall be issued to any 
person over 16 years of age, who is in possession of a valid 
driver's license, who is enrolled in an approved two-wheeled 
vehicle driver's safety course, and who has passed a written 
examination for such permit and has paid such fee as the 
commissioner of public safety shall prescribe.  A two-wheeled 
vehicle instruction permit shall be effective for 45 days, and 
may be renewed under rules to be prescribed by the commissioner 
of public safety. 
     No person who is operating by virtue of a two-wheeled 
vehicle instruction permit shall: 
     (a) Carry any passengers on the streets and highways of

commissioner as an interstate highway pursuant to title 23 of 
the United States Code. 
     (d) Drive the motorcycle without wearing protective 
headgear of a type approved by the commissioner of public safety.
     Notwithstanding the provisions of this subdivision, the 
commissioner of public safety may, however, issue a special 
motorcycle permit, restricted or qualified in such manner as he 
shall deem proper, to any person demonstrating a need therefor 
and unable to qualify for a standard driver's license. 
    Sec. 30.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 169.974, 
subdivision 6, is amended to read:

resulting in any head injury to an operator or passenger of a 
motorcycle, evidence of whether or not the injured person was 
wearing protective headgear of a type approved by the 
commissioner of public safety shall be admissible only with 
respect to the question of damages for head injuries.  Damages 
for head injuries of any person who was not wearing protective 
headgear shall be reduced to the extent that those injuries 
could have been avoided by wearing protective headgear of a type 
approved by the commissioner of public safety.  For the purposes 
of this subdivision "operator or passenger" means any operator 
or passenger regardless of whether that operator or passenger 
was required by law to wear protective headgear approved by the 
commissioner of public safety.

shall be in the form and have the effect of a summons and 
complaint.  There shall also be included on the uniform ticket a 
receipt in lieu of bail which, when signed by the defendant, 
shall be a guarantee by him of his appearance in the court 
having jurisdiction over the matter.  The uniform traffic ticket 
shall consist of four parts, on paper sensitized so that copies

    Sec. 42.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 268.18,

    Subd. 2.  [FRAUD.] Any claimant who files a claim for or 
receives benefits by knowingly and wilfully misrepresenting or 
misstating any material fact or by knowingly and willfully 
failing to disclose any material fact which would make him 
ineligible for benefits under sections 268.03 to 268.24 is 
guilty of fraud.  After the discovery of facts by the 
commissioner indicating fraud in claiming or obtaining benefits 
under sections 268.03 to 268.24, he is hereby authorized to make 
a determination that the claimant was ineligible for each week 
with reference to which benefits were claimed or obtained by 
fraud for the amount as was in excess of what the claimant would 
have been entitled to had he not made the fraudulent statements 
or failed to disclose any material facts.  The commissioner also 
may disqualify an individual from benefits for one to 52 weeks 
in which the claimant is otherwise eligible for benefits 
following the week in which the fraud was determined.  A 
disqualification imposed for fraud shall not be removed by 
subsequent insured work or the expiration of a benefit year but 
shall not apply to any week more than 104 weeks after the week 
in which the fraud was determined.  Said claimant shall within 
20 days from the date of mailing the notice of said 
determination to him repay in cash to the department of economic 
security any benefits so fraudulently obtained.  Unless the 
claimant files a written appeal with the department of economic 
security within 15 days after the mailing of the notice of 
determination to his last known address or personal delivery of 
the notice., the determination shall become final.  If the 
claimant shall appeal from such determination within the time 
above specified said matter shall be referred to an appeal 
tribunal for a hearing as in other benefit cases and thereafter 
the procedure for review shall be the same as set forth in 
section 268.10.  The commissioner is hereby authorized to deduct 
from future benefits payable to the claimant in either the 
current or any subsequent benefit year an amount equivalent to 
the amount of overpayment determined or the overpayment may be 
collected without interest by civil action in the name of the 
commissioner.  If a claimant has been overpaid benefits under 
the law of another state and that state certifies to the 
department the facts involved and that the individual is liable 
to repay the benefits and requests the department to recover the 
overpayment, the commissioner is authorized to deduct from 
future benefits payable to the claimant in either the current or 
any subsequent benefit year an amount equivalent to the amount 
of overpayment determined by that state. 
    Sec. 43.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 273.13,

land, most contiguous surrounding, bordering, or closest to the

land shall constitute class 3b only if the homestead is 
classified as class 3b and the detached land is located in the 
same township or city or not farther than two townships or 
cities or combination thereof from the homestead.  The first 
$12,000 market value of each tract of real estate which is rural 
in character and devoted or adaptable to rural but not 
necessarily agricultural use, used for the purpose of a 
homestead shall be exempt from taxation for state purposes;

or structures are located on this homesteaded acre of land, 
their market value shall not be included in this separate 
determination.

certificate of the commissioner of revenue to the general fund 
of the state, be paid by the commissioner of revenue as follows: 
    (1) 2.5 cents per gross ton of merchantable iron ore 
concentrate, hereinafter referred to as "taxable ton," to the 
city or town in which the lands from which taconite was mined or 
quarried were located or within which the concentrate was 
produced.  If the mining, quarrying, and concentration, or 
different steps in either thereof are carried on in more than 
one taxing district, the commissioner shall apportion equitably 
the proceeds of the part of the tax going to cities and towns 
among such subdivisions upon the basis of attributing 40 percent 
of the proceeds of the tax to the operation of mining or 
quarrying the taconite, and the remainder to the concentrating 
plant and to the processes of concentration, and with respect to 
each thereof giving due consideration to the relative extent of 
such operations performed in each such taxing district.  His 
order making such apportionment shall be subject to review by 
the tax court at the instance of any of the interested taxing 
districts, in the same manner as other orders of the 
commissioner. 
    (2) 12.5 cents per taxable ton, less any amount distributed 
under clause (8), to the taconite municipal aid account in the 
apportionment fund of the state treasury, to be distributed as 
provided in section 298.282. 
    (3) 29 cents per taxable ton plus the increase provided in 
paragraph (c) to qualifying school districts to be distributed 
as follows: 
    (a) Six cents per taxable ton to the school districts in 
which the lands from which taconite was mined or quarried were 
located or within which the concentrate was produced.  The 
commissioner shall follow the apportionment formula prescribed 
in clause (1). 
    (b) 23 cents per taxable ton, less any amount distributed 
under part (d), shall be distributed to a group of school 
districts comprised of those school districts wherein the 
taconite was mined or quarried or the concentrate produced or in 
which there is a qualifying municipality as defined by section

distribution which its certified levy for the prior year, 
computed pursuant to section 275.125, comprises of the sum of 
certified levies for the prior year for all qualifying 
districts, computed pursuant to section 275.125.  For purposes 
of distributions pursuant to this part, certified levies for the 
prior year computed pursuant to section 275.125 shall not 
include the amount of any increased levy authorized by 
referendum pursuant to section 275.125, subdivision 2d. 
    (c) On July 15, 1982 and on July 15 in subsequent years, an 
amount equal to the increase derived by increasing the amount 
determined by clause (3)(b) in the same proportion as the 
increase in the steel mill products index over the base year of 
1977 as provided in section 298.24, subdivision 1, clause (a), 
shall be distributed to any school district described in clause 
(3)(b) where a levy increase pursuant to section 275.125,

previous school year, less the product of two mills times the 
district's taxable valuation in the second previous year; times 
    (ii) the lesser of: 
    (A) one, or 
    (B) the ratio of the amount certified pursuant to section 
275.125, subdivision 2d, in the previous year, to the product of 
two mills times the district's taxable valuation in the second 
previous year. 
    If the total amount provided by clause (3)(c) is 
insufficient to make the payments herein required then the 
entitlement of $150 per pupil unit shall be reduced uniformly so 
as not to exceed the funds available.  Any amounts received by a 
qualifying school district in any fiscal year pursuant to clause 
(3)(c) shall not be applied to reduce foundation aids which the 
district is entitled to receive pursuant to section 124.212 
sections 124.2121 to 124.2128 or the permissible levies of the 
district.  Any amount remaining after the payments provided in 
this paragraph shall be paid to the commissioner of finance who 
shall deposit the same in the taconite environmental protection 
fund and the northeast Minnesota economic protection trust fund 
as provided in section 298.28, subdivision 1, clause 10. 
    (d) There shall be distributed to any school district the 
amount which the school district was entitled to receive under

distributed as follows: 
    (a) 15.5 cents per taxable ton shall be distributed to the 
county in which the taconite is mined or quarried or in which 
the concentrate is produced, less any amount which is to be

primary source of power for a taxpayer mining and concentrating 
taconite is located in a county other than the county in which 
the mining and the concentrating processes are conducted, one 
cent per taxable ton of the tax distributed to the counties 
pursuant to part (a) and imposed on and collected from such 
taxpayer shall be distributed by the commissioner of revenue to 
the county in which the power plant is located. 
    (c) Four cents per taxable ton shall be paid to the county 
from which the taconite was mined, quarried or concentrated to 
be deposited in the county road and bridge fund.  If the mining, 
quarrying and concentrating, or separate steps in any of those 
processes are carried on in more than one county, the 
commissioner shall follow the apportionment formula prescribed 
in clause (1). 
    (5) (a) 25.75 cents per taxable ton, less any amount 
required to be distributed under part (b), to the taconite 
property tax relief account in the apportionment fund in the 
state treasury, to be distributed as provided in sections 
273.134 to 273.136. 
    (b) If an electric power plant owned by and providing the 
primary source of power for a taxpayer mining and concentrating 
taconite is located in a county other than the county in which 
the mining and the concentrating processes are conducted, .75 
cent per taxable ton of the tax imposed and collected from such 
taxpayer shall be distributed by the commissioner of revenue to 
the county and school district in which the power plant is 
located as follows:  25 percent to the county and 75 percent to 
the school district. 
    (6) One cent per taxable ton to the state for the cost of 
administering the tax imposed by section 298.24. 
    (7) Three cents per taxable ton shall be deposited in the 
state treasury to the credit of the iron range resources and 
rehabilitation board account in the special revenue fund for the 
purposes of section 298.22.  The amount determined in this 
clause shall be increased in 1981 and subsequent years in the 
same proportion as the increase in the steel mill products index 
as provided in section 298.24, subdivision 1.  The amount 
distributed pursuant to this clause shall be expended within or 
for the benefit of a tax relief area defined in section 
273.134.  No part of the fund provided in this clause may be 
used to provide loans for the operation of private business 
unless the loan is approved by the governor and the legislative 
advisory commission. 
    (8) .20 cent per taxable ton shall be paid in 1979 and each 
year thereafter, to the range association of municipalities and 
schools, for the purpose of providing an area wide approach to 
problems which demand coordinated and cooperative actions and 
which are common to those areas of northeast Minnesota affected 
by operations involved in mining iron ore and taconite and 
producing concentrate therefrom, and for the purpose of 
promoting the general welfare and economic development of the 
cities, towns and school districts within the iron range area of 
northeast Minnesota. 
    (9) the amounts determined under clauses (4)(a), (4)(c), 
and (5) shall be increased in 1979 and subsequent years in the 
same proportion as the increase in the steel mill products index 
as provided in section 298.24, subdivision 1. 
    (10) the proceeds of the tax imposed by section 298.24 
which remain after the distributions in clauses (1) to (9) and 
parts (a) and (b) of this clause have been made shall be divided 
between the taconite environmental protection fund created in 
section 298.223 and the northeast Minnesota economic protection 
trust fund created in section 298.292 as follows:  In 1981 and 
each year thereafter, two-thirds to the taconite environmental 
protection fund and one-third to the northeast Minnesota 
economic protection trust fund.  The proceeds shall be placed in 
the respective special accounts in the general fund. 
    (a) In 1978 and each year thereafter, there shall be 
distributed to each city, town, school district, and county the 
amount that they received under section 294.26 in calendar year 
1977; provided, however, that the amount distributed in 1981 to 
the unorganized territory number 2 of Lake County and the town 
of Beaver Bay based on the between-terminal trackage of Erie 
Mining Company will be distributed in 1982 and subsequent years 
to the unorganized territory number 2 of Lake County and the 
towns of Beaver Bay and Stony River based on the miles of track 
of Erie Mining Company in each taxing district. 
    (b) In 1978 and each year thereafter, there shall be 
distributed to the iron range resources and rehabilitation board 
the amounts it received in 1977 under section 298.22. 
    On or before October 10 of each calendar year each producer 
of taconite or iron sulphides subject to taxation under section 
298.24 (hereinafter called "taxpayer") shall file with the 
commissioner of revenue and with the county auditor of each 
county in which such taxpayer operates, and with the chief 
clerical officer of each school district, city or town which is 
entitled to participate in the distribution of the tax, an 
estimate of the amount of tax which would be payable by such 
taxpayer under said law for such calendar year; provided such 
estimate shall be in an amount not less than the amount due on 
the mining and production of concentrates up to September 30 of 
said year plus the amount becoming due because of probable 
production between September 30 and December 31 of said year, 
less any credit allowable as hereinafter provided.  Such 
estimate shall list the taxing districts entitled to participate 
in the distribution of such tax, and the amount of the estimated 
tax which would be distributable to each such district in the 
next ensuing calendar year on the basis of the last percentage 
distribution certified by the commissioner of revenue.  If there 
be no such prior certification, the taxpayer shall set forth its 
estimate of the proper distribution of such tax under the law, 
which estimate may be corrected by the commissioner if he deems 
it improper, notice of such correction being given by him to the 
taxpayer and the public officers receiving such estimate.  The 
officers with whom such report is so filed shall use the amount 
so indicated as being distributable to each taxing district in 
computing the permissible tax levy of such county, city or 
school district in the year in which such estimate is made, and 
payable in the next ensuing calendar year, except that in 1978 
and 1979 two cents per taxable ton, and in 1980 and thereafter, 
one cent per taxable ton of the amount distributed under clause 
(4)(c) shall not be deducted in calculating the permissible 
levy.  Such taxpayer shall then pay, at the times payments are 
required to be made pursuant to section 298.27, as the amount of 
tax payable under section 298.24, the greater of (a) the amount 
shown by such estimate, or (b) the amount due under said section 
as finally determined by the commissioner of revenue pursuant to 
law.  If, as a result of the payment of the amount of such 
estimate, the taxpayer has paid in any calendar year an amount 
of tax in excess of the amount due in such year under section 
298.24, after application of credits for any excess payments 
made in previous years, all as determined by the commissioner of 
revenue, the taxpayer shall be given credit for such excess 
amount against any taxes which, under said section, may become 
due from the taxpayer in subsequent years.  In any calendar year 
in which a general property tax levy subject to sections 275.125 
or 275.50 to 275.59 has been made, if the taxes distributable to 
any such county, city or school district are greater than the 
amount estimated to be paid to any such county, city or school 
district in such year, the excess of such distribution shall be 
held in a special fund by the county, city or school district 
and shall not be expended until the succeeding calendar year, 
and shall be included in computing the permissible levies under 
sections 275.125 or 275.50 to 275.59, of such county, city or 
school district payable in such year.  If the amounts 
distributable to any such county, city or school district, after 
final determination by the commissioner of revenue under this 
section are less than the amounts indicated by such estimates, 
such county, city or school district may issue certificates of 
indebtedness in the amount of the shortage, and may include in 
its next tax levy, in excess of the limitations of sections 
275.125 or 275.50 to 275.59 an amount sufficient to pay such 
certificates of indebtedness and interest thereon, or, if no 
certificates were issued, an amount equal to such shortage. 
    There is hereby annually appropriated to such taxing 
districts as are stated herein, to the taconite property tax 
relief account and to the taconite municipal aid account in the 
apportionment fund in the state treasury, to the department of 
revenue, to the iron range resources and rehabilitation board, 
to the range association of municipalities and schools, to the 
taconite environmental protection fund, and to the northeast 
Minnesota economic protection trust fund, from any fund or 
account in the state treasury to which the money was credited, 
an amount sufficient to make the payment or transfer.  The 
payment of the amount appropriated to such taxing districts 
shall be made by the commissioner of revenue on or before May 15 
annually.

trustee therefor all or any part of the revenues of one or more 
projects and define and segregate the revenues or provide for

itself except with respect to the project;

the same, the court shall order him to pay it.  If a person or 
party disobeys the order, he may be punished by the court as for 
contempt. 
    Sec. 75.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 525.619, is 
amended to read: 
     525.619 [POWERS AND DUTIES OF GUARDIAN OF MINOR.] 
     A guardian of a minor has the powers and responsibilities 
of a parent who has not been deprived of custody of his minor 
and unemancipated child, except that a guardian is not legally 
obligated to provide from his own funds for the ward.  In 
particular, and without qualifying the foregoing, a guardian has 
the following powers and duties: 
     (a) He must take reasonable care of his ward's personal 
effects and commence protective proceedings if necessary to 
protect other property of the ward. 
     (b) He may receive money payable for the support of the 
ward to the ward's parent, guardian or custodian under the terms 
of any statutory benefit or insurance system, or any private 
contract, devise, trust, conservatorship or custodianship.  He 
also may receive money or property of the ward paid or delivered 
by virtue of section 525.6196.  Any sums so received shall be 
applied to the ward's current needs for support, care and 
education.  He must exercise due care to conserve any excess for 
the ward's future needs unless a conservator has been appointed 
for the estate of the ward, in which case the excess shall be 
paid over at least annually to the conservator.  Sums so 
received by the guardian are not to be used for compensation for 
his services except as approved by order of court or as 
determined by a duly appointed conservator other than the 
guardian.  A guardian may institute proceedings to compel the 
performance by any person of a duty to support the ward or to 
pay sums for the welfare of the ward. 
    (c) The guardian is empowered to facilitate the ward's 
education, social, or other activities and to authorize medical 
or other professional care, treatment or advice.  A ward may not 
be committed to any state institution except pursuant to 
sections 253A.01 to 253A.21 chapter 253B and no guardian may 
give consent for psychosurgery, electroshock, sterilization or 
experimental treatment of any kind unless the procedure is first 
approved by the order of the court, after a hearing as 
prescribed by section 525.56, subdivision 2. 
    A guardian is not liable by reason of his consent for 
injury to the ward resulting from the negligence or acts of 
third persons unless it would have been illegal for a parent to 
have consented, or unless he fails to comply with the 
requirements of this section which provide that a court order is 
necessary for commitment and for certain types of medical 
procedures.  A guardian may consent to the marriage or adoption 
of his ward. 
    (d) A guardian must report the condition of his ward and of 
the ward's estate which has been subject to his possession or 
control, as ordered by the court on its own motion or on 
petition of any person interested in the minor's welfare and as 
required by court rule.

    For purposes of any public pension plan, as defined in 
section 356.60, subdivision 1, clause (a) 356.61, each employer 
shall pick up the employee contributions required pursuant to 
law or the pension plan for all salary payable after December 
31, 1982.  If the United States Treasury department or a federal 
court rules that pursuant to section 414(h) of the Internal 
Revenue Code of 1954, as amended, that these picked up 
contributions, are not includable in the employee's adjusted 
gross income until they are distributed or made available, then 
these picked up contributions shall be treated as employer 
contributions in determining tax treatment pursuant to the 
Internal Revenue Code of 1954, as amended, and the employer 
shall discontinue withholding federal income taxes on the amount 
of these contributions.  The employer shall pay these picked up 
contributions from the same source of funds as is used to pay 
the salary of the employee.  The employer shall pick up these 
employee contributions by a reduction in the cash salary of the 
employee.  Employee contributions that are picked up shall be 
treated for all purposes of the public pension plan in the same 
manner and to the same extent as employee contributions that 
were made prior to the date on which the employee contributions 
pick up began.  For purposes of this section, "employee" means 
any person covered by a public pension plan.  For purposes of 
this section, "employee contributions" include any sums deducted 
from the employee's salary or wages or otherwise paid in lieu 
thereof, regardless of whether they are denominated 
contributions by the public pension plan.  
    For any calendar year in which withholding has been reduced 
pursuant to this section, the association or agency 
administering the plan shall supply each employee and the 
commissioner of revenue with an information return indicating 
the amount of the employer's picked-up contributions for the 
calendar year that were not subject to withholding.  This return 
shall be provided to the employee not later than January 31 of 
the succeeding calendar year.  The commissioner of revenue shall 
prescribe the form of the return and the provisions of sections 
290.41 and 290.42 shall apply to the extent not inconsistent 
with the provisions of this section. 
    Sec. 86.  [INSTRUCTION TO THE REVISOR.] 
    In Minnesota Statutes the revisor shall substitute the 
phrase "sections 367.30 to 367.36" for the phrase "Laws 1975, 
Chapter 274" wherever it appears in sections 367.30 to 367.36. 
    Sec. 87.  [INSTRUCTION TO THE REVISOR.] 
    In Minnesota Statutes the revisor shall substitute the 
words "economic security" for "employment services" to identify 
a fund, building, law, account, or other term that now relates 
to the department of economic security but still refers to the 
former department of employment services. 
    Sec. 88.  [INSTRUCTION TO THE REVISOR.] 
    In Minnesota Statutes, chapter 182, the revisor shall 
change all references to "Laws 1973, chapter 732," to "sections 
182.65 to 182.674."

shall not be adjusted for inflation pursuant to subdivision 2d, 
for taxable years beginning during a calendar year if the 
following conditions occur:  
    (1) The legislature and the governor have enacted a budget 
providing for an appropriation to the budget reserve account of 
at least $250,000,000 for the biennium during which the calendar 
year began or, in the second half of an odd-numbered year, for 
the biennium which began during the calendar year; and 
    (2) The commissioner of finance estimated at the time the 
budget is enacted that the state would receive sufficient 
general fund receipts during the biennium to fund the full 
appropriation to the budget reserve account; and 
    (3) On or before September 15 of the calendar year it is 
estimated by the commissioner of finance that the probable 
general fund receipts from taxes and other sources will be less 
than estimated and consequently the amount available for the 
remainder of the biennium after transferring any available funds 
in the budget reserve account will be less than the amount 
estimated or allotted to be expended or incurred from the 
general fund; and 
    (4) The additional receipts resulting from the suspension 
of the inflation adjustments, together with all other general 
fund revenues, are not estimated to exceed the sum of the 
amounts necessary to fund in full all appropriations, including 
the appropriation to the budget reserve account, in which case 
the commissioner of revenue shall provide for partial inflation 
adjustments sufficient to fund in full the appropriations.  
    (b) The suspension of inflation adjustments shall apply 
only during the biennium in which the conditions specified in 
paragraph (a) have been satisfied.  
    (c) For taxable years beginning during a calendar year in 
which the inflation adjustments of the brackets, credits, and 
maximum standard deduction are not made pursuant to this 
subdivision, the taxable net income adjustment factor, as 
defined in section 290.18, subdivision 4, shall be the 
adjustment factor applicable to taxable years beginning during 
the preceding calendar year.  For taxable years beginning during 
a calendar year in which the inflation adjustments are suspended 
for one-half of the taxable year as a result of paragraph (b), 
the taxable net income adjustment factor shall be determined by 
multiplying the factor for the previous year by an amount equal 
to the current year factor minus one, divided by two, plus one.  
    (d) For taxable years beginning during a calendar year in 
which the inflation adjustments are suspended pursuant to this 
subdivision and for which paragraph (b) will result in the 
inflation adjustments being suspended for only one-half of the 
taxable year, the commissioner of revenue shall adjust the 
withholding tables, notwithstanding section 290.92, subdivision 
2a, so that the additional tax imposed is withheld and remitted 
by employers during the first six months of the taxable year as 
if the suspension were in effect for the entire year.
