For the purpose of satisfying the public sale requirements of Minnesota Constitution, article VIII, section 4, and other applicable provisions of Minnesota's Constitution, including but not limited to article IV, section 32, and in keeping with the decision of the Minnesota Supreme Court in the case of Independent School District of Virginia v. State, 124 Minn. 271, where the court held that condemnation satisfied the public sale requirement of the Minnesota Constitution, the commissioner of administration shall acquire, by condemnation, fee title to all trust lands to be conveyed to the United States of America pursuant to section 383C.72. The commissioner of administration shall not condemn the interests of any person holding a lease, license, or permit from the state in the lands condemned. Before any parcel of trust fund land is donated to the United States, the commissioner of administration shall certify to the governor that the parcel has been condemned, the condemnation award has been paid, and the time to appeal from the award has expired. The commissioner of administration shall certify the payment of a condemnation award to the St. Louis County auditor, whereupon the St. Louis County auditor shall reimburse the state of Minnesota from county funds for the amount of that award.
