    Subd. 3. Notice to agencies; determination of surplus. The commissioner of natural
resources shall send written notice to all state departments, agencies and the University of
Minnesota describing any lands or tracts which may be declared surplus. If a department or agency
or the University of Minnesota desires custody of the lands or tracts, it shall submit a written
request to the commissioner, no later than four calendar weeks after mailing of the notice, setting
forth in detail its reasons for desiring to acquire, and its intended use of, the land or tract. The
commissioner shall then determine whether any of the lands described in the certifications of the
heads of the departments or agencies should be declared surplus and offered for sale or otherwise
disposed of by transferring custodial control to other requesting state departments or agencies
or to the Board of Regents of the University of Minnesota for educational purposes, provided
however that transfer to the Board of Regents shall not be determinative of tax exemption or
immunity. If the commissioner determines that any of the lands are no longer needed for state
purposes, the commissioner shall make findings of fact, describe the lands, declare the lands to be
surplus state land, and state the reasons for the sale or disposition of the lands.
