12.38 STATE AGENCIES; TEMPORARY WAIVER OF FEES.
Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, a state agency as defined in section
, with the approval of the governor, may waive fees that would otherwise be
charged for agency services. The waiver of fees must be confined to geographic areas within
a presidentially declared disaster area, and to the minimum periods of time necessary to deal
with the emergency situation. The requirements of section
14.05, subdivision 4
, do not apply to
a waiver made under this section. The agency must promptly report the reasons for and the
impact of any suspended fees to the chairs of the legislative committees that oversee the policy
and budgetary affairs of the agency.
