Swedzinski moved to amend H. F. No. 1842, the second engrossment, as follows:

 

Page 1, after line 7, insert:

 

"Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 116C.779, is amended by adding a subdivision to read:

 

Subd. 1a.  Payment termination.  (a) The commissioner of management and budget shall track the cumulative transfers made to the account and its predecessor, the renewable development account, each year since 1999 for each dry cask containing spent fuel that is stored at an independent spent-fuel storage facility at Prairie Island or Monticello.  During the time when state law required the public utility to transfer a specific amount of funds to the account for all the casks stored, the per-cask allocation shall be calculated by dividing the total amount transferred by the number of casks stored that year.

 

(b) No additional transfers to the account shall be made for a cask whose cumulative transfers, as determined by the commissioner of management and budget under paragraph (a), have reached $10,000,000 or more.  The commissioner of management and budget shall notify the public utility that no additional transfers to the account for that cask shall be made.

 

(c) This subdivision does not affect any provisions of subdivision 1, paragraph (c) or (d), with respect to transfers to the account made after a plant has ceased operation.

 

EFFECTIVE DATE.  This section is effective the day following final enactment and applies to transfers to the account scheduled to be made in 2025 and thereafter."

 

Renumber the sections in sequence and correct the internal references

 

Amend the title accordingly
