www.tricountynews.mn ~J Legislative Update for May 13 By MicheUe Fischbach Minnesota State Senator This past week, the Senate passed a number of bills off of the Senate floor, including some omnibus policy bills and the latest REAL ID legislation. In addition to floor session, the House and Senate conference committee for the supplemental budget began meeting this week. Last week, I was named as one of the Senate conferees to the committee. Jobs, Agriculture, & Rural Development Monday, the Senate passed Senate File 3018, the annual omni- bus policy bill for the Department of Agriculture. The bill con- tains various policy and techni- cal changes such as: removing the requirement that a licensed com- mercial or noncommercial appli- cator have proper use certifica- tion before applying pesticide to a golf course, as well as an extension of the MN Organic Advisory Task Force until 2019. Also on Monday, the Senate passed Senate File 3216, the annual recommendations from the Unemployment Insurance Advisory Council, which is part of Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED). Finally on Monday, the Senate passed Senate File 1898, a bill mod- ifying progress payments and retainages for building and con- struction contracts. This bill is the result of lengthy negotiations between groups representing con- tractors and subcontractors. This Wednesday, the Senate passed House File 2478, which were the annual recommendations of the Workers' Compensation Advisory Council. The Council is a part of the Department of Labor & Industry. On Thursday, Senate File 3208 passed the Senate. This bill estab- lishes a Legislative Task Force on Access to Affordable Child Care. The Task Force is comprised of House members and Senators from both parties, to be appointed by July 1, 2016. The Task Force is required to work with the DHS Commissioner and issue a report to the legislative commit- tees with jurisdiction over child care issues, and the governor, by Jan. 15, 2017. Also on Thursday, the lobs, Agriculture, and Rural Development Committee con- firmed three judges for the Workers' Compensation Court of Appeals, as well as a new DEED Commissioner, all on unanimous voice votes. Supplemental Finance Bill The House and Senate confer- ence committee on the omnibus supplemental finance bill met this week to go through spreadsheets and policy language, and to receive testimony from agency officials. However, no substantive action was taken as the committee waited on legislative leaders and the Governor to negotiate a "global" agreement on appropriations, revenue, and signif- icant policy items. Senate conferees are Senators Cohen, Wiger, Saxhaug, Lourey, and myself. House confer- ees are Representatives Knoblach, McNamara, Dean, Garofalo, and Loon. Several bills are being confer- enced as one package: the Senate passed an over 600-page omnibus supplemental finance bill, which contained a great deal of policy as well, and it is being combined with the Senate-passed E-12 and higher education policy bills. The House passed three separate omnibus supplemental bills in the areas of: E-12 education/higher education; agriculture/environment/jobs, and; health & human services/ state government/public safety. How far apart are the posi- tions of the House and Senate and Governor? The omnibus supple- mental spending for the Senate DFL and Governor are both over one-half billion dollars; the Ho~se omnibus supplemental is under $20 million. There are also separate con- ference committees on transpor- tation and taxes that have unre- solved differences, and a capi- tal investment bill has yet to pass either the House or Senate. REAL ID Passes the Senate On Thursday, the full Senate passed a bill that would begin implementing the federal REAL ID program. The bill establishes a two-tier driver's license and iden- tification card system and directs the Department of Public Safety (DPS) to start issuing them Jan. 1, 2018. Earlier this session, the legis- lature passed a bill lifting the ban on planning for REAL ID. That bill required DPS to issue a report to the legislature identifying steps necessary to begin the implemen- tation process. This bill generally reflects those nezessary steps. The two-tier system will give Minnesotan's the option to choose between a federally compliant driver's license and identification card and non-compliant one. This system provides some comfort for those individuals that have con- cerns with REAL ID and the poten- tial future uses of the program. The 2018 issuance date does cre- ate some complications for those Minnesotans that will need to renew their driver's license and identification cards after the effec- tive date of this legislation. For these Minnesotans, the renewals will only be good for two years. Once the two year expiration occurs, DPS will begin issuing REAL ID compliant licenses and ID's which will be valid for the full four years. This bill is based on the assump- tion that Minnesotan's will pay the full rate for a license or ID that expires in two years rather than the standard four years. If the leg- islature chooses not to address this issue this session, there is still time to find a solution next biennium, or the legislature could provide fund- ing this session to prorate the cost of these two year licenses and IDs, which would be around $10 million. The bill will next go to conference committee where House and Senate differences will be reconciled.
