                  An act relating to natural resources; providing for 
                  the establishment of heritage forest areas in 
                  specified counties; modifying timber provisions; 
                  requiring a report on the process for public 
                  involvement in timber harvest plans; requiring certain 
                  rule changes for public use of recreational areas; 
                  amending Minnesota Statutes 1998, sections 90.121; 
                  90.14; 90.151, subdivisions 1 and 4; 90.161, 
                  subdivisions 1 and 2; 90.162; 90.173; 90.181; 90.201, 
                  subdivision 2, and by adding a subdivision; 90.252; 
                  90.281; 97A.135, subdivision 2a; and 477A.11, 
                  subdivisions 3 and 4; proposing coding for new law in 
                  Minnesota Statutes, chapters 90; and 97A. 
        BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
           Section 1.  [90.042] [PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT PROCESS.] 
           By July 1 each year, the commissioner must provide a 
        complete description of the public involvement process for 
        timber harvest plans to the chairs of the legislative committees 
        with jurisdiction over natural resources policy and finance.  
        The process must provide public notice and public input in 
        affected areas of proposed annual harvest plans. 
           Sec. 2.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 90.121, is 
        amended to read: 
           90.121 [INTERMEDIATE AUCTION SALES; MAXIMUM LOTS OF 3,000 
        CORDS.] 
           The commissioner may sell the timber on any tract of state 
        land in lots not exceeding 3,000 cords in volume, in the same 
        manner as timber sold at public auction under section 90.101, 
        and related laws, subject to the following special exceptions 
        and limitations:  
           (1) sales shall be at the forest office or other public 
        facility most accessible to potential bidders or close to where 
        the tract is located; 
           (2) the commissioner's list describing the tract, quantity 
        of timber, and appraised price shall be compiled not less than 
        30 days before the date of sale and a copy of the list posted 
        not less than 30 days before the date of the sale at the 
        location designated for the sale; 
           (3) notice of the sale shall be published once, not less 
        than one week before the date of the sale; 
           (4) no bidder may be awarded more than 25 percent of the 
        total tracts offered at the first round of bidding unless fewer 
        than four tracts are offered, in which case not more than one 
        tract shall be awarded to one bidder.  Any tract not sold may be 
        offered for sale for a period of no more than six months for 
        purchase by persons eligible under this section at the appraised 
        value; 
           (5) the bond or deposit required pursuant to section 90.161 
        or 90.173 shall be given or deposited and approved as to form 
        and execution by the commissioner before any cutting begins or 
        not later than 120 days after the date of purchase, whichever is 
        earlier, provided that the commissioner may extend the time for 
        furnishing the bond or deposit for not more than 30 additional 
        days for good cause shown; 
           (6) in lieu of the placing of the marks M I N on cut 
        products as prescribed under section 90.151, subdivision 2, all 
        landings of cut products shall be legibly marked with the name 
        of the permit holder and the assigned permit number; and 
           (7) no person may hold more than six permits issued under 
        this section and no sale may be made to a person holding six 
        permits which are still in effect or to a person having more 
        than 20 employees;.  
           (8) the permit may not exceed three years in duration; and 
           (9) if all cut timber, equipment, and buildings are not 
        removed at the end of any 120-day extension period which the 
        commissioner may grant for removal, the commissioner may grant a 
        second period of time not to exceed 120 days for the removal of 
        cut timber, equipment, and buildings upon receipt of a request 
        by the permit holder for hardship reasons only.  
           The auction sale procedure set forth in this section 
        constitutes an additional alternative timber sale procedure 
        available to the commissioner and is not intended to replace 
        other authority possessed by the commissioner to sell timber in 
        lots of 3,000 cords or less. 
           Sec. 3.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 90.14, is amended 
        to read: 
           90.14 [AUCTION SALE PROCEDURE.] 
           (a) All state timber shall be offered and sold by the same 
        unit of measurement as it was appraised.  The sale shall be made 
        to the party who (1) shall bid the highest price for all the 
        several kinds of timber as advertised, or (2) if unsold at 
        public auction, to the party who purchases at any sale 
        authorized under section 90.101, subdivision 1.  The 
        commissioner may refuse to approve any and all bids received and 
        cancel a sale of state timber for good and sufficient reasons.  
           (b) The purchaser at any sale of timber shall, immediately 
        upon the approval of the bid, or, if unsold at public auction, 
        at the time of purchase at a subsequent sale under section 
        90.101, subdivision 1, pay to the commissioner 25 15 percent of 
        the appraised value.  In case any purchaser fails to make such 
        payment, the purchaser shall be liable therefor to the state in 
        a civil action, and the commissioner may reoffer the timber for 
        sale as though no bid or sale under section 90.101, subdivision 
        1, therefor had been made. 
           (c) In lieu of the scaling of state timber required by this 
        chapter, a purchaser of state timber may, at the time of the bid 
        approval and upon payment by the purchaser to the commissioner 
        of 15 percent of the appraised value, elect in writing on a form 
        prescribed by the attorney general to purchase a permit based 
        solely on the appraiser's estimate of the volume of timber 
        described in the permit, provided that the commissioner has 
        expressly designated the availability of such option for that 
        tract on the list of tracts available for sale as required under 
        section 90.101 or 90.121.  A purchaser who elects in writing on 
        a form prescribed by the attorney general to purchase a permit 
        based solely on the appraiser's estimate of the volume of timber 
        described on the permit does not have recourse to the provisions 
        of section 90.281. 
           Sec. 4.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 90.151, 
        subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
           Subdivision 1.  [ISSUANCE; EXPIRATION.] (a) Following 
        receipt of the down payment for state timber sold at public 
        auction, the commissioner shall issue a numbered permit to the 
        purchaser, in a form approved by the attorney general, by the 
        terms of which the purchaser shall be authorized to enter upon 
        the land, and to cut and remove the timber therein described, 
        according to the provisions of this chapter.  The permit shall 
        be correctly dated and executed by the commissioner or agent and 
        signed by the purchaser.  
           (b) The permit shall expire no later than five years after 
        the date of sale as the commissioner shall specify, and the 
        timber shall be cut within the time specified therein.  All cut 
        timber, equipment, and buildings not removed from the land 
        within 90 days after expiration of the permit shall become the 
        property of the state.  
           (c) The commissioner may grant an additional period of time 
        not to exceed 120 days for the removal of cut timber, equipment, 
        and buildings upon receipt of such request by the permit holder 
        for good and sufficient reasons.  The commissioner may grant a 
        second period of time not to exceed 120 days for the removal of 
        cut timber, equipment, and buildings upon receipt of a request 
        by the permit holder for hardship reasons only. 
           (d) No permit shall be issued to any person other than the 
        purchaser in whose name the bid was made.  
           Sec. 5.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 90.151, 
        subdivision 4, is amended to read: 
           Subd. 4.  [PERMIT TERMS.] The permit shall provide that all 
        timber sold or designated for cutting shall be cut without 
        damage to other timber; that the permit holder shall remove all 
        timber authorized to be cut under the permit; that timber sold 
        by board measure but later determined by the commissioner not to 
        be convertible into board measure shall be paid for by the piece 
        or cord or other unit of measure according to the size, species, 
        or value, as may be determined by the commissioner; that all 
        timber products, except as specified by the commissioner, shall 
        be scaled and the final settlement for the timber cut shall be 
        made on this scale; and that the permit holder shall pay to the 
        state the permit price for all timber authorized to be cut, 
        including timber not cut. 
           Sec. 6.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 90.161, 
        subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
           Subdivision 1.  [BOND REQUIRED.] Except as otherwise 
        provided by law, the purchaser of any state timber, before any 
        timber permit shall become effective for any purpose, 
        shall within 120 days from the date of purchase give a good and 
        valid bond to the state of Minnesota equal to the value of all 
        timber covered or to be covered by the permit, as shown by the 
        sale price bid and the appraisal report as to quantity, less the 
        amount of any payment pursuant to section 90.14.  The bond shall 
        be conditioned upon the faithful performance by the purchaser 
        and successors in interest of all terms and conditions of the 
        permit and all requirements of law in respect to timber sales.  
        The bond shall be approved in writing by the commissioner and 
        filed for record in the commissioner's office.  In the 
        alternative to cash and bond requirements, but upon the same 
        conditions, a purchaser may post bond for 100 percent of the 
        purchase price and request refund of the amount of any payment 
        pursuant to section 90.14.  The commissioner may credit the 
        refund to any other permit held by the same permit holder if the 
        permit is delinquent as provided in section 90.181, subdivision 
        2, or may credit the refund to any other permit to which the 
        permit holder requests that it be credited.  
           Sec. 7.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 90.161, 
        subdivision 2, is amended to read: 
           Subd. 2.  [FAILURE TO BOND.] If bond is not furnished 
        within 120 days from the date of purchase, no harvesting may 
        occur and the down payment for timber shall forfeit to the 
        state, except that the commissioner may grant an extension of 
        time for good and sufficient reason, provided that any extension 
        of time shall not exceed 30 days.  
           Sec. 8.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 90.162, is 
        amended to read: 
           90.162 [ALTERNATIVE TO BOND OR DEPOSIT REQUIREMENTS.] 
           In lieu of the bond or cash deposit required by section 
        90.161 or 90.173, a purchaser of state timber may, at the time 
        of the bid approval and upon payment by the purchaser to the 
        commissioner of 25 15 percent of the appraised value under 
        section 90.14, elect in writing on a form prescribed by the 
        attorney general to prepay the purchase price for any designated 
        cutting block identified on the permit before the date the 
        purchaser enters upon the land to begin harvesting the timber. 
           Sec. 9.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 90.173, is 
        amended to read: 
           90.173 [PURCHASER'S OR ASSIGNEE'S CASH DEPOSIT IN LIEU OF 
        BOND.] 
           (a) In lieu of filing the bond required by section 90.161 
        or 90.171, as security for the issuance or assignment of a 
        timber permit the person required to file the bond may deposit 
        with the state treasurer cash, a certified check, a cashier's 
        check, a personal check, a postal, bank, or express money order, 
        assignable bonds or notes of the United States, or an assignment 
        of a bank savings account or investment certificate or an 
        irrevocable bank letter of credit, in the same amount as would 
        be required for a bond.  If securities listed in this section 
        are deposited, the par value of the securities shall be not less 
        than the amount required for the timber sale bond, and the 
        person required to file the timber sale bond shall submit an 
        agreement authorizing the commissioner to sell or otherwise take 
        possession of the security in the event of default under the 
        timber sale.  All of the conditions of the timber sale bond 
        shall equally apply to the deposit with the state treasurer.  In 
        the event of a default the state may take from the deposit the 
        sum of money to which it is entitled; the remainder, if any, 
        shall be returned to the person making the deposit and shall 
        bear interest at the rate determined pursuant to section 549.09 
        if not returned within 30 days from the date of the default.  
        Sums of money as may be required by the state treasurer to carry 
        out the terms and provisions of this section are appropriated 
        from the general fund to the state treasurer for these 
        purposes.  When cash is deposited for a bond, it shall be 
        applied to the amount due when a statement is prepared and 
        transmitted to the permit holder pursuant to section 90.181.  
        Any balance due to the state shall be shown on the statement and 
        shall be paid as provided in section 90.181.  Any amount of the 
        deposit in excess of the amount determined to be due pursuant to 
        section 90.181 shall be returned to the permit holder when a 
        final statement is transmitted pursuant to that section.  All or 
        part of a cash bond may be withheld from application to an 
        amount due on a nonfinal statement if it appears that the total 
        amount due on the permit will exceed the bid price.  
           (b) If an irrevocable bank letter of credit is provided as 
        security under paragraph (a), at the written request of the 
        permittee the state shall annually allow the amount of the bank 
        letter of credit to be reduced by an amount proportionate to the 
        value of timber that has been harvested and for which the state 
        has received payment under the timber permit.  The remaining 
        amount of the bank letter of credit after a reduction under this 
        paragraph must not be less than the value of the timber 
        remaining to be harvested under the timber permit. 
           Sec. 10.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 90.181, is 
        amended to read: 
           90.181 [STATEMENT OF TIMBER CUT.] 
           Subdivision 1.  [PASSAGE OF TITLE TO TIMBER.] (a) The 
        commissioner shall transmit to the permit holder a statement of 
        the amount due therefor by the terms of the permit upon 
        completion of the cutting or at least annually in the case of an 
        auction permit.  Any partial payment received may be applied to 
        any items on the statement as the commissioner shall determine.  
           (b) The title to the timber shall not pass from the state 
        until such the timber has been scaled as required by the permit 
        and the commissioner has made adequate arrangements for 
        collecting the payment for the same as will protect the interest 
        of the state, full payment for the timber has been received, and 
        all other provisions of the permit have been fully complied with.
           Subd. 2.  [DEFERRED PAYMENTS.] (a) If the amount of the 
        statement is not paid within 30 days of the date thereof, it 
        shall bear interest at the rate determined pursuant to section 
        549.09 16A.124, except that the purchaser shall not be required 
        to pay interest that totals $1 or less.  If the amount is not 
        paid within 60 days, the commissioner shall place the account in 
        the hands of the attorney general who shall proceed to collect 
        the same.  When deemed in the best interests of the state, the 
        commissioner shall take possession of the timber for which an 
        amount is due wherever it may be found and sell the same 
        informally or at public auction after giving reasonable notice.  
           (b) The proceeds of the sale shall be applied, first, to 
        the payment of the expenses of seizure and sale; and, second, to 
        the payment of the amount due for the timber, with interest; and 
        the surplus, if any, shall belong to the state; and, in case a 
        sufficient amount is not realized to pay these amounts in full, 
        the balance shall be collected by the attorney general.  Neither 
        payment of the amount, nor the recovery of judgment therefor, 
        nor satisfaction of the judgment, nor the seizure and sale of 
        timber, shall release the sureties on any bond given pursuant to 
        this chapter, or preclude the state from afterwards claiming 
        that the timber was cut or removed contrary to law and 
        recovering damages for the trespass thereby committed, or from 
        prosecuting the offender criminally.  
           Sec. 11.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 90.201, 
        subdivision 2, is amended to read: 
           Subd. 2.  [REFUNDS ON FINAL BILLING; INTEREST PAYMENT ON 
        LATE REFUNDS.] The commissioner shall refund to a permit holder 
        any amount paid on a timber sale which exceeds the value of the 
        timber cut under that sale as determined on a final statement 
        transmitted pursuant to section 90.181.  The commissioner may 
        credit a refund to any other permit held by the same permit 
        holder if the permit is delinquent as provided in section 
        90.181, subdivision 2, and may credit a refund to any other 
        permit to which the permit holder requests that it be credited.  
           Any refund of cash which is due to a permit holder as 
        determined on a final statement transmitted pursuant to section 
        90.181 which is not paid to the permit holder within 45 days 
        after the date of that statement shall bear interest at the rate 
        determined pursuant to section 549.09 unless the refund is 
        credited on another permit as provided in this subdivision. 
        Interest shall be paid from the date of the final statement.  No 
        interest shall be paid in an amount of $50 or less.  
           Sec. 12.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 90.201, is 
        amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
           Subd. 2a.  [PROMPT PAYMENT OF REFUNDS.] Any refund of cash 
        that is due to a permit holder as determined on a final 
        statement transmitted pursuant to section 90.181 or a refund of 
        cash made pursuant to section 90.161, subdivision 1, or 90.173, 
        paragraph (a), shall be paid to the permit holder according to 
        section 16A.124 unless the refund is credited on another permit 
        as provided in this chapter. 
           Sec. 13.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 90.252, is 
        amended to read: 
           90.252 [CONSUMER SCALE OF STATE TIMBER.] 
           The commissioner may enter into an agreement with either a 
        timber sale permittee, or the purchaser of the cut products, or 
        both, so that the scaling of the cut timber and the collection 
        of the payment for the same can be consummated by the consumer.  
        Such an agreement shall provide for a bond or cash in lieu of a 
        bond and such other safeguards as are necessary to protect the 
        interests of the state.  Such a scaling and payment collection 
        procedure may be used for any state timber sale, except that in 
        the case of timber sold under section 90.101, no permittee who 
        is also the consumer shall both cut and scale the timber sold 
        unless such scaling is supervised by a state scaler.  
           Sec. 14.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 90.281, is 
        amended to read: 
           90.281 [RESCALES, RECOUNTS AND REESTIMATES.] 
           (a) Upon complaint of any interested permit holder 
        questioning the accuracy of any scale, count, or estimate of 
        timber made by any state appraiser, or at any other time the 
        commissioner determines in the absence of a complaint, the 
        commissioner may cause a rescale, recount, or reestimate thereof 
        to be made jointly by any two or more state appraisers, which 
        when made shall supersede and for all purposes take the place of 
        the original scale, count, or estimate, if and only when it the 
        scale or count varies more than ten percent from the original or 
        the estimate exceeds the standards established by section 90.045.
           (b) As a condition precedent to the making of any such a 
        rescale, recount, or reestimate upon the complaint of any 
        person, the commissioner may require such the person to make 
        available such sum of money as the commissioner deems necessary 
        for the actual expenses thereof and to forfeit the same to the 
        state if such the rescale, and recount, or reestimate does not 
        vary more than ten percent from the original or the reestimate 
        does not exceed the standards established by section 90.045.  
        All such forfeited money shall be paid into the state treasury 
        and credited to the fund or account from which the expenses 
        of such the rescale, recount, or reestimate were paid.  
           Sec. 15.  [LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS; PURPOSE.] 
           Consolidated-conservation lands are lands that have a 
        unique status under the legislative acts of 1929, 1931, and 1933 
        that created boundaries for the lands to become 
        consolidated-conservation lands in Beltrami, Koochiching, Lake 
        of the Woods, Aitkin, Mahnomen, Marshall, and Roseau counties.  
        The counties and the commissioner of natural resources have had 
        joint interests, responsibilities, and receipts of revenues from 
        the consolidated-conservation lands as provided by law which 
        have led to disagreements and frustration over the designation 
        and use of these lands.  The lands were privately owned and 
        became tax-forfeited from drainage and property taxes leaving 
        the counties with the burden of providing infrastructure without 
        taxable lands to provide supporting revenue.  The commissioner 
        of natural resources has been charged with developing game 
        preserves, forestry areas, and other state purposes on these 
        lands that were previously privately owned and drained wholly or 
        partially for settlement.  The goals and uses for the 
        consolidated-conservation lands require a working relationship 
        between the counties and the commissioner to resolve state and 
        county concerns for the lands. 
           It is the purpose of this act to designate certain 
        consolidated-conservation lands as forestry or wildlife 
        management lands with certain uses so that there is no further 
        dispute about the status of those lands, to provide increased 
        payments in lieu of taxes to support county infrastructure, and 
        to provide a structure and forum for the counties and the 
        commissioner to resolve identified issues and make common 
        recommendations to the legislature. 
           Sec. 16.  [97A.133] [STATE WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREAS.] 
           Subdivision 1.  [ESTABLISHMENT.] State wildlife management 
        areas are established and designated as provided under this 
        section.  State wildlife management areas are located and named 
        as indicated in this section. 
           Subd. 2.  [PAYMENT IN LIEU OF TAXES.] The consolidated 
        conservation lands included in state wildlife management areas 
        are subject to the payment in lieu tax as provided in section 
        477A.12, paragraph (a), clause (1). 
           Subd. 3.  [ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLE TRAVEL WITHIN DESIGNATED 
        WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREAS.] (a) On lands acquired by the state 
        under chapter 84A that are designated after January 1, 1986, as 
        wildlife management areas, the commissioner shall, by January 
        15, 2003, identify and designate corridor trails in corridors of 
        disturbance that the commissioner determines are appropriate to 
        connect trails, forest roads established under section 89.71, 
        subdivision 1, and public highways to provide reasonable travel 
        for all-terrain vehicles.  The commissioner shall consult with 
        wildlife management area users, including both motorized and 
        nonmotorized trail users, in identifying and designating 
        corridor trails under this paragraph.  Corridor trail 
        establishment must be in compliance with other state and federal 
        law.  Local governments and other trail sponsors may propose the 
        designation of corridor trails, including the designation as a 
        grant-in-aid trail for the purposes of funding under section 
        84.927, subdivision 2. 
           (b) The following forest roads shall be open to travel by 
        all-terrain vehicles when the roads are open to other 
        noncommercial vehicles: 
           (1) the Rapid River forest road, beginning at the west 
        boundary of the Red Lake wildlife management area at the 
        southwest corner of Section 7, Township 156 North, Range 35 
        West, Beltrami county, thence in an easterly and northeasterly 
        direction through the Red Lake wildlife management area to the 
        east boundary of the Red Lake wildlife management area at the 
        southwest corner of Section 7, Township 157 North, Range 33 
        West, Lake of the Woods county; 
           (2) the Blanchard forest road, beginning at the junction of 
        the North Shore Road along the northern shore of Upper Red Lake 
        and the Blanchard state forest road at the west section line of 
        Section 30, Township 155 North, Range 31 West, Beltrami county, 
        thence in a westerly direction to the west section line of 
        Section 31, Township 155 North, Range 32 West; and 
           (3) the Moose River forest road, beginning at the junction 
        of Dick's Parkway state forest road and the Moose River state 
        forest road at the southwest corner of Section 31, Township 36 
        West, Range 158 North, thence in a westerly direction along the 
        Moose River state forest road to the junction of Beltrami county 
        road 706. 
           (c) The commissioner shall sign each road and trail 
        designated under this subdivision indicating the motorized uses 
        allowed. 
           (d) For the purposes of this subdivision, "corridors of 
        disturbance" means rights-of-way such as ditches, ditch banks, 
        transmission lines, pipelines, permanent roads, winter roads, 
        and recreational trails.  The existence of a corridor of 
        disturbance eligible for corridor designation may be 
        demonstrated by physical evidence, document recorded in the 
        office of the county recorder or other public official, aerial 
        survey, or other evidence similar to the above.  Cross-country 
        motorized use of land shall not cause that land to be considered 
        a corridor of disturbance.

        state and administered by the commissioner or by the county in 
        which it is located; and
