Subd. 7.  Licensing moratorium.  (a) The commissioner shall not issue an initial license for child foster care licensed under Minnesota Rules, parts 2960.3000 to 2960.3340, or adult foster care licensed under Minnesota Rules, parts 9555.5105 to 9555.6265, under this chapter for a physical location that will not be the primary residence of the license holder for the entire period of licensure.  If a license is issued during this moratorium, and the license holder changes the license holder's primary residence away from the physical location of the foster care license, the commissioner shall revoke the license according to section 245A.07.  The commissioner shall not issue an initial license for a community residential setting licensed under chapter 245D.  When approving an exception under this paragraph, the commissioner shall consider the resource need determination process in paragraph (h), the availability of foster care licensed beds in the geographic area in which the licensee seeks to operate, the results of a person's choices during their annual assessment and service plan review, and the recommendation of the local county board.  The determination by the commissioner is final and not subject to appeal.  Exceptions to the moratorium include:

 

(1) foster care settings that are required to be registered under chapter 144D;

 

(2) foster care licenses replacing foster care licenses in existence on May 15, 2009, or community residential setting licenses replacing adult foster care licenses in existence on December 31, 2013, and determined to be needed by the commissioner under paragraph (b);

(4) new foster care licenses or community residential setting licenses determined to be needed by the commissioner under paragraph (b) for persons requiring hospital level care;

 

(5) new foster care licenses or community residential setting licenses determined to be needed by the commissioner for the transition of people from personal care assistance to the home and community-based services;

 

(6) new foster care licenses or community residential setting licenses determined to be needed by the commissioner for the transition of people from the residential care waiver services to foster care services.  This exception applies only when:

 

(i) the person's case manager provided the person with information about the choice of service, service provider, and location of service to help the person make an informed choice; and

 

(ii) the person's foster care services are less than or equal to the cost of the person's services delivered in the residential care waiver service setting as determined by the lead agency; or

 

(7) new foster care licenses or community residential setting licenses for people receiving services under chapter 245D and residing in an unlicensed setting before May 1, 2017, and for which a license is required.  This exception does not apply to people living in their own home.  For purposes of this clause, there is a presumption that a foster care or community residential setting license is required for services provided to three or more people in a dwelling unit when the setting is controlled by the provider.  A license holder subject to this exception may rebut the presumption that a license is required by seeking a reconsideration of the commissioner's determination.  The commissioner's disposition of a request for reconsideration is final and not subject to appeal under chapter 14.  The exception is available until June 30, 2018 2019.  This exception is available when:

 

(i) the person's case manager provided the person with information about the choice of service, service provider, and location of service, including in the person's home, to help the person make an informed choice; and

 

(ii) the person's services provided in the licensed foster care or community residential setting are less than or equal to the cost of the person's services delivered in the unlicensed setting as determined by the lead agency.; or

 

(8) a vacancy in a setting granted an exception under clause (7), may receive an exception created by a person receiving services under chapter 245D and residing in the unlicensed setting between January 1, 2017, and May 1, 2017, for which a vacancy occurs between January 1, 2017, and the date of the exception request.  This exception is available when the lead agency provides documentation to the commissioner on the eligibility criteria being met.  This exception is available until June 30, 2019.

 

(b) The commissioner shall determine the need for newly licensed foster care homes or community residential settings as defined under this subdivision.  As part of the determination, the commissioner shall consider the availability of foster care capacity in the area in which the licensee seeks to operate, and the recommendation of the local county board.  The determination by the commissioner must be final.  A determination of need is not required for a change in ownership at the same address.

 

(c) When an adult resident served by the program moves out of a foster home that is not the primary residence of the license holder according to section 256B.49, subdivision 15, paragraph (f), or the adult community residential setting, the county shall immediately inform the Department of Human Services Licensing Division.  The department may decrease the statewide licensed capacity for adult foster care settings.

 

(d) Residential settings that would otherwise be subject to the decreased license capacity established in paragraph (c) shall be exempt if the license holder's beds are occupied by residents whose primary diagnosis is mental illness and the license holder is certified under the requirements in subdivision 6a or section 245D.33.


Journal of the House - 72nd Day - Monday, March 19, 2018 - Top of Page 7484

(e) A resource need determination process, managed at the state level, using the available reports required by section 144A.351, and other data and information shall be used to determine where the reduced capacity determined under section 256B.493 will be implemented.  The commissioner shall consult with the stakeholders described in section 144A.351, and employ a variety of methods to improve the state's capacity to meet the informed decisions of those people who want to move out of corporate foster care or community residential settings, long-term service needs within budgetary limits, including seeking proposals from service providers or lead agencies to change service type, capacity, or location to improve services, increase the independence of residents, and better meet needs identified by the long-term services and supports reports and statewide data and information.

 

(f) At the time of application and reapplication for licensure, the applicant and the license holder that are subject to the moratorium or an exclusion established in paragraph (a) are required to inform the commissioner whether the physical location where the foster care will be provided is or will be the primary residence of the license holder for the entire period of licensure.  If the primary residence of the applicant or license holder changes, the applicant or license holder must notify the commissioner immediately.  The commissioner shall print on the foster care license certificate whether or not the physical location is the primary residence of the license holder.

 

(g) License holders of foster care homes identified under paragraph (f) that are not the primary residence of the license holder and that also provide services in the foster care home that are covered by a federally approved home and community-based services waiver, as authorized under section 256B.0915, 256B.092, or 256B.49, must inform the human services licensing division that the license holder provides or intends to provide these waiver-funded services.

 

(h) The commissioner may adjust capacity to address needs identified in section 144A.351.  Under this authority, the commissioner may approve new licensed settings or delicense existing settings.  Delicensing of settings will be accomplished through a process identified in section 256B.493.  Annually, by August 1, the commissioner shall provide information and data on capacity of licensed long-term services and supports, actions taken under the subdivision to manage statewide long-term services and supports resources, and any recommendations for change to the legislative committees with jurisdiction over the health and human services budget.

 

(i) The commissioner must notify a license holder when its corporate foster care or community residential setting licensed beds are reduced under this section.  The notice of reduction of licensed beds must be in writing and delivered to the license holder by certified mail or personal service.  The notice must state why the licensed beds are reduced and must inform the license holder of its right to request reconsideration by the commissioner.  The license holder's request for reconsideration must be in writing.  If mailed, the request for reconsideration must be postmarked and sent to the commissioner within 20 calendar days after the license holder's receipt of the notice of reduction of licensed beds.  If a request for reconsideration is made by personal service, it must be received by the commissioner within 20 calendar days after the license holder's receipt of the notice of reduction of licensed beds.

 

(j) The commissioner shall not issue an initial license for children's residential treatment services licensed under Minnesota Rules, parts 2960.0580 to 2960.0700, under this chapter for a program that Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services would consider an institution for mental diseases.  Facilities that serve only private pay clients are exempt from the moratorium described in this paragraph.  The commissioner has the authority to manage existing statewide capacity for children's residential treatment services subject to the moratorium under this paragraph and may issue an initial license for such facilities if the initial license would not increase the statewide capacity for children's residential treatment services subject to the moratorium under this paragraph."

The election judges shall then return all the counted ballots, and all the partially defective or partially blank ballots, to the original pile to be separated and counted in the same manner for the next office or question.

Sec. 18.  Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 206.90, subdivision 6, is amended to read:

 

Subd. 6.  Ballots.  In precincts using optical scan voting systems, a single ballot card on which all ballot information is included must be printed in black ink on white colored material except that marks not to be read by the automatic tabulating equipment may be printed in another color ink.  In state elections, a single ballot title must be used, as provided in sections 204D.08, subdivision 6, and 204D.11, subdivision 1.  In odd-numbered years When both municipal and school district offices or questions appear on the ballot, the single ballot title "City (or Town) and School District Ballot" must be used.

 

On the front of the ballot must be printed the words "Official Ballot" and the date of the election and lines for the initials of at least two election judges.

 

When optical scan ballots are used, the offices to be elected must appear in the following order:  federal offices; state legislative offices; constitutional offices; proposed constitutional amendments; county offices and questions; municipal offices and questions; school district offices and questions; special district offices and questions; and judicial offices.

 

On optical scan ballots, the names of candidates and the words "yes" and "no" for ballot questions must be printed as close to their corresponding vote targets as possible.

 

The line on an optical scan ballot for write-in votes must contain the words "write-in, if any."

 

If a primary ballot contains both a partisan ballot and a nonpartisan ballot, the instructions to voters must include a statement that reads substantially as follows:  "This ballot card contains a partisan ballot and a nonpartisan ballot.  On the partisan ballot you are permitted to vote for candidates of one political party only."  If a primary ballot contains political party columns on both sides of the ballot, the instructions to voters must include a statement that reads substantially as follows:  "Additional political parties are printed on the other side of this ballot.  Vote for one political party only."  At the bottom of each political party column on the primary ballot, the ballot must contain a statement that reads substantially as follows:  "Continue voting on the nonpartisan ballot."  The instructions in section 204D.08, subdivision 4, do not apply to optical scan partisan primary ballots.  Electronic ballot displays and audio ballot readers must follow the order of offices and questions on the optical scan or paper ballot used in the same precinct, or the sample ballot posted for that precinct.

Journal of the House - 72nd Day - Monday, March 19, 2018 - Top of Page 7551

Subd. 5.  Review of MNLARS appropriation.  (a) Funds appropriated to the Department of Public Safety for MNLARS are divided into four equal quarters.  The commissioner must allot a quarter of the funds on July 1, October 1, January 1, and April 1, unless directed otherwise by the committee as provided in this section.  Twenty days prior to the start of a quarter, the commissioner must submit the proposed funding allotment to the members of the committee for review and recommendation.  The commissioner of public safety and the state chief information officer must provide information to the committee to enable the committee members to determine whether the deadlines and performance measures have been met for the quarter.  The committee members have 20 days from the receipt of the proposal to determine whether the Department of Public Safety and the Office of MN.IT Services have met the deadlines and performance measures established in subdivision 4.  If no recommendation is made during the 20-day review period, the commissioner may allot the quarterly funds to the Department of Public Safety for MNLARS.  If a majority of the committee members make a negative recommendation based on the failure to meet deadlines or performance measures or recommend further review to determine whether deadlines and performance measures have been met during the 20-day review period, the committee may defer all future payments, slow the next allotment, or condition the next allotment.  Accordingly, the commissioner must defer, slow, or condition the quarterly funds to the Department of Public Safety for MNLARS.

 

(b) A committee member, by written notice to the commissioner, may withdraw a negative recommendation or a recommendation for further review within 20 days of making the recommendation.  If a majority of members make a negative recommendation or a recommendation for further review, but members subsequently withdraw recommendations under this paragraph so that three or fewer recommendations remain, the commissioner may allot the quarterly funds to the Department of Public Safety for MNLARS.

 

(c) If a quarterly allotment is not made pursuant to paragraph (a), the commissioner must allot to the Department of Public Safety an amount sufficient to fund an additional 30 days for contracted technical staff working on MNLARS.  If negative recommendations or recommendations for further review are withdrawn pursuant to paragraph (b) after the partial allotment is made under this paragraph, the commissioner must allot the remainder of the quarterly allotment.

 

Subd. 6.  Resubmission of proposal.  If a proposed allotment receives a negative recommendation or a recommendation for further review under subdivision 3, and all of the negative recommendations and recommendations for further review are not withdrawn, the commissioner may submit proposed legislation to the chairs of the house of representatives Ways and Means Committee and the senate Finance Committee for consideration during the 2019 legislative session.

 

EFFECTIVE DATE.  This section is effective the day following final enactment and applies to any fiscal year 2019 appropriation for MNLARS in this act or any subsequent act.

 

Sec. 3.  APPROPRIATIONS.

 

(a) $9,650,000 in fiscal year 2018 is appropriated from the special revenue fund to the commissioner of public safety for contracted technical staff and technical costs related to the continued development and improvement of the Minnesota Licensing and Registration System (MNLARS).  Of this amount, $2,150,000 is from the vehicle services operating account and $7,500,000 is from the driver services operating account.  These are onetime appropriations.
