           Section 1.  [306.155] [CORRECTION OF INTERMENT ERRORS.] 
           Subdivision 1.  [REQUIREMENT.] If the operator of a 
        cemetery is informed or becomes aware that it has interred or 
        permitted the interment of a body or remains in the wrong burial 
        space, unless the interested parties have agreed otherwise in 
        writing, it shall disinter the burial container wrongfully 
        interred, identify the burial container, and reinter it in the 
        proper burial space.  The cemetery must give reasonable notice, 
        in advance of the disinterment, to the nearest known next of kin 
        person or persons legally entitled to control the body or 
        remains of the deceased person and, if requested, the owner of 
        the burial space.  
           Subd. 2.  [WITNESSES.] At the time specified for the 
        disinterment and reinterment, the cemetery must permit the 
        nearest known next of kin person or persons legally entitled to 
        control the body or remains and, if requested, the owner of the 
        burial space to witness the disinterment and reinterment.  
           Subd. 3.  [COSTS.] The cemetery must bear all costs of the 
        disinterment and reinterment.

        115C.11, subdivision 1, as amended by 2003 S.F. No. 905, article 
        1, section 136, if enacted, is amended to read: 
           Subdivision 1.  [REGISTRATION.] (a) All consultants and 
        contractors who perform corrective action services must register 
        with the board.  In order to register, consultants must meet and 
        demonstrate compliance with the following criteria: 
           (1) provide a signed statement to the board verifying 
        agreement to abide by this chapter and the rules adopted under 
        it and to include a signed statement with each claim that all 
        costs claimed by the consultant are a true and accurate account 
        of services performed; 
           (2) provide a signed statement that the consultant shall 
        make available for inspection any records requested by the board 
        for field or financial audits under the scope of this chapter; 
           (3) certify knowledge of the requirements of this chapter 
        and the rules adopted under it; 
           (4) obtain and maintain professional liability coverage, 
        including pollution impairment liability; and 
           (5) agree to submit to the board a certificate or 
        certificates verifying the existence of the required insurance 
        coverage. 
           (b) The board must maintain a list of all registered 
        consultants and a list of all registered contractors. 
           (c) All corrective action services must be performed by 
        registered consultants and contractors. 
           (d) Reimbursement for corrective action services performed 
        by an unregistered consultant or contractor is subject to 
        reduction under section 115C.09, subdivision 3, paragraph (i). 
           (e) Corrective action services performed by a consultant or 
        contractor prior to being removed from the registration list may 
        be reimbursed without reduction by the board. 
           (f) If the information in an application for registration 
        becomes inaccurate or incomplete in any material respect, the 
        registered consultant or contractor must promptly file a 
        corrected application with the board. 
           (g) Registration is effective 30 days after a complete 
        application is received by the board.  The board may reimburse 
        without reduction the cost of work performed by an unregistered 
        contractor if the contractor performed the work within 60 days 
        of the effective date of registration. 
           (h) Registration for consultants under this section remains 
        in force until the expiration date of the professional liability 
        coverage, including pollution impairment liability, required 
        under paragraph (a), clause (4), or until voluntarily terminated 
        by the registrant, or until suspended or revoked by the 
        commissioner of commerce.  Registration for contractors under 
        this section expires each year on the anniversary of the 
        effective date of the contractor's most recent registration and 
        must be renewed on or before expiration.  Prior to its annual 
        expiration, a registration remains in force until voluntarily 
        terminated by the registrant, or until suspended or revoked by 
        the commissioner of commerce.  All registrants must comply with 
        registration criteria under this section. 
           (i) The board may deny a consultant or contractor 
        registration or request for renewal under this section if the 
        consultant or contractor: 
           (1) does not intend to or is not in good faith carrying on 
        the business of an environmental consultant or contractor; 
           (2) has filed an application for registration that is 
        incomplete in any material respect or contains any statement 
        which, in light of the circumstances under which it is made, 
        contains any misrepresentation, or is false, misleading, or 
        fraudulent; 
           (3) has engaged in any fraudulent, coercive, deceptive, or 
        dishonest act or practice whether or not the act or practice 
        involves the business of environmental consulting or 
        contracting; 
           (4) has forged another's name to any document whether or 
        not the document relates to a document approved by the board;

        state or jurisdiction; or 
           (7) has not paid subcontractors hired by the consultant or

        1160.09, subdivision 1a, as amended by 2003 S.F. No. 905,

           Sec. 6.  [CORR03-3B] Minnesota Statutes 2002, section 
        611.17, as amended by 2003 First Special Session S.F. No. 2, 
        article 3, section 4, if enacted, is amended to read: 
           Sec. 4.  Minnesota Statutes 2002, section 611.17, is 
        amended to read: 
           611.17 [FINANCIAL INQUIRY; STATEMENTS; CO-PAYMENT.] 
           Subdivision 1.  [STANDARDS FOR DISTRICT PUBLIC DEFENSE 
        ELIGIBILITY.] (a) Each judicial district must screen requests 
        for representation by the district public defender.  A defendant 
        is financially unable to obtain counsel if: 
           (1) the defendant, or any dependent of the defendant who 
        resides in the same household as the defendant, receives 
        means-tested governmental benefits; or 
           (2) the defendant, through any combination of liquid assets 
        and current income, would be unable to pay the reasonable costs 
        charged by private counsel in that judicial district for a 
        defense of the same matter. 
           (b) Upon a request for the appointment of counsel, the 
        court shall make appropriate inquiry into the financial 
        circumstances of the applicant, who shall submit a financial 
        statement under oath or affirmation setting forth the 
        applicant's assets and liabilities, including the value of any 
        real property owned by the applicant, whether homestead or 
        otherwise, less the amount of any encumbrances on the real 
        property, the source or sources of income, and any other 
        information required by the court.  The applicant shall be under 
        a continuing duty while represented by a public defender to 
        disclose any changes in the applicant's financial circumstances 
        that might be relevant to the applicant's eligibility for a 
        public defender.  The state public defender shall furnish 
        appropriate forms for the financial statements.  The forms must 
        contain conspicuous notice of the applicant's continuing duty to 
        disclose to the court changes in the applicant's financial 
        circumstances.  The forms must also contain conspicuous notice 
        of the applicant's obligation to make a co-payment for the 
        services of the district public defender, as specified under 
        paragraph (c).  The information contained in the statement shall 
        be confidential and for the exclusive use of the court and the 
        public defender appointed by the court to represent the 
        applicant except for any prosecution under section 609.48.  A 
        refusal to execute the financial statement or produce financial 
        records constitutes a waiver of the right to the appointment of 
        a public defender.  The court shall not appoint a district 
        public defender to a defendant who is financially able to retain 
        private counsel but refuses to do so. 
           An inquiry to determine financial eligibility of a 
        defendant for the appointment of the district public defender 
        shall be made whenever possible prior to the court appearance 
        and by such persons as the court may direct.  This inquiry may 
        be combined with the pre-release investigation provided for in 
        Minnesota Rule of Criminal Procedure 6.02, subdivision 3.  In no 
        case shall the district public defender be required to perform 
        this inquiry or investigate the defendant's assets or 
        eligibility.  The court has the sole duty to conduct a financial 
        inquiry.  The inquiry must include the following: 
           (1) the liquidity of real estate assets, including the 
        defendant's homestead; 
           (2) any assets that can be readily converted to cash or 
        used to secure a debt; 
           (3) the determination of whether the transfer of an asset 
        is voidable as a fraudulent conveyance; and 
           (4) the value of all property transfers occurring on or 
        after the date of the alleged offense.  The burden is on the 
        accused to show that he or she is financially unable to afford 
        counsel.  Defendants who fail to provide information necessary 
        to determine eligibility shall be deemed ineligible.  The court 
        must not appoint the district public defender as advisory 
        counsel. 
           (c) Upon appointment of the public defender, an individual 
        who receives public defender services shall be obligated to pay 
        to the court a co-payment for representation provided by a 
        public defender.  The co-payment shall be according to the 
        following schedule: 
           (1) if the person was charged with a felony, $200; 
           (2) if the person was charged with a gross misdemeanor, 
        $100; or 
           (3) if the person was charged with a misdemeanor, $50. 
           If the person is a child and was appointed counsel under 
        the provisions of section 260B.163, subdivision 4, the parents 
        of the child shall pay to the court a co-payment of $100.  If 
        the person is a parent of a child and the parent was appointed 
        counsel under the provisions of section 260C.163, subdivision 3, 
        the parent shall pay to the court a co-payment of $200. 
           The co-payment shall be deposited in the state general 
        fund.  If a term of probation is imposed as a part of an 
        offender's sentence, the co-payment required by this section 
        must not be made a condition of probation.  The co-payment 
        required by this section is a civil obligation and must not be 
        made a condition of a criminal sentence.  Collection of the 
        co-payment may be made through the provisions of chapter 270A, 
        the Revenue Recapture Act. 
           (d) All public defender co-pay revenue collected under 
        paragraph (c) and revenues less statutory fees collected under 
        chapter 270A shall be deposited in the public defender co-pay 
        account in the special revenue fund. 
           The first $2,740,000 deposited in the public defender 
        co-pay account must be transferred to the general fund.  This is 
        not an annual transfer.  Receipts in excess of the first 
        $2,740,000 are appropriated to the board of public defense for 
        public defender services. 
           Sec. 7.  [CORR03-4A] Minnesota Statutes 2002, section 
        349.151, subdivision 4, as amended by 2003 First Special Session 
        H.F. No. 1, article 2, section 86, if enacted, is amended to 
        read:

        subdivision 4, is amended to read:

        to the public health, welfare, or safety or the integrity of 
        lawful gambling. 
           A gambling manager's license runs concurrent with the 
        organization's license unless the gambling manager's license is

        first year and $3,500,000 the second 
        year of the amounts appropriated for 
        marketing activities are contingent on 
        receipt of an equal contribution from 
        nonstate sources that have been 
        certified by the commissioner.  Up to 
        one-half of the match may be given in 
        in-kind contributions. 
        In order to maximize marketing grant 
        benefits, the commissioner must give 
        priority for joint venture marketing 
        grants to organizations with year-round 
        sustained tourism activities.  For 
        programs and projects submitted, the 
        commissioner must give priority to 
        those that encompass two or more areas 
        or that attract nonresident travelers 
        to the state. 
        If an appropriation for either year for 
        grants is not sufficient, the 
        appropriation for the other year is 
        available for it. 
        The commissioner may use grant dollars 
        or the value of in-kind services to 
        provide the state contribution for the 
        partnership program. 
        Any unexpended money from general fund 
        appropriations made under this 
        subdivision does not cancel but must be 
        placed in a special advertising account 
        for use by the office of tourism to 
        purchase additional media.

        is for a onetime grant to the 
        Mississippi River parkway commission to 
        support the increased promotion of 
        tourism along the Great River Road.  
        This appropriation is available until 
        June 30, 2005.  Notwithstanding

        Of this amount, $175,000 the first year 
        and $175,000 the second year are for 
        the Minnesota film board.  The

        $3 provided by this appropriation.

           (c) In order to contain costs, the commissioner of human 
        services shall select vendors of medical care who can provide 
        the most economical care consistent with high medical standards 
        and shall where possible contract with organizations on a 
        prepaid capitation basis to provide these services.  The 
        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 8, and 256B.0625.  For payments made during fiscal 
        year 1990 and later years, the commissioner shall consult with 
        an independent actuary in establishing prepayment rates, but 
        shall retain final control over the rate methodology.  
           (d) Recipients eligible under subdivision 3, paragraph (a), 
        clause (2), item (i), shall pay the following co-payments for 
        services provided on or after October 1, 2003: 
           (1) $3 per nonpreventive visit.  For purposes of this

        required because of a recipient's symptoms, diagnosis, or 
        established illness, and which is delivered in an ambulatory 
        setting by a physician or physician ancillary, chiropractor, 
        podiatrist, nurse midwife, mental health professional, advanced 
        practice nurse, physical therapist, occupational therapist, 
        speech therapist, audiologist, optician, or optometrist; 
           (2) $25 for eyeglasses; 
           (3) $25 for nonemergency visits to a hospital-based 
        emergency room; 
           (4) $3 per brand-name drug prescription and $1 per generic 
        drug prescription, subject to a $20 per month maximum for 
        prescription drug co-payments.  No co-payments shall apply to 
        antipsychotic drugs when used for the treatment of mental 
        illness; and 
           (5) 50 percent coinsurance on basic restorative dental 
        services. 
           (e) Recipients of general assistance medical care are 
        responsible for all co-payments in this subdivision.  The 
        general assistance medical care reimbursement to the provider 
        shall be reduced by the amount of the co-payment, except that 
        reimbursement for prescription drugs shall not be reduced once a 
        recipient has reached the $20 per month maximum for prescription 
        drug co-payments.  The provider collects the co-payment from the 
        recipient.  Providers may not deny services to recipients who 
        are unable to pay the co-payment, except as provided in 
        paragraph (f). 
           (f) If it is the routine business practice of a provider to 
        refuse service to an individual with uncollected debt, the 
        provider may include uncollected co-payments under this 
        section.  A provider must give advance notice to a recipient 
        with uncollected debt before services can be denied. 
           (g) Any county may, from its own resources, provide medical 
        payments for which state payments are not made. 
           (h) Chemical dependency services that are reimbursed under 
        chapter 254B must not be reimbursed under general assistance 
        medical care. 
           (i) The maximum payment for new vendors enrolled in the 
        general assistance medical care program after the base year 
        shall be determined from the average usual and customary charge 
        of the same vendor type enrolled in the base year. 
           (j) The conditions of payment for services under this 
        subdivision are the same as the conditions specified in rules 
        adopted under chapter 256B governing the medical assistance 
        program, unless otherwise provided by statute or rule. 
           (k) Inpatient and outpatient payments shall be reduced by 
        five percent, effective July 1, 2003.  This reduction is in 
        addition to the five percent reduction effective July 1, 2003, 
        and incorporated by reference in paragraph (i).  
           (l) Payments for all other health services except 
        inpatient, outpatient, and pharmacy services shall be reduced by 
        five percent, effective July 1, 2003.  
           (m) Payments to managed care plans shall be reduced by five 
        percent for services provided on or after October 1, 2003. 
           (n) A hospital receiving a reduced payment as a result of 
        this section may apply the unpaid balance toward satisfaction of 
        the hospital's bad debts.
