1.2Page 4, after line 11, insert:

1.3    "Sec. 5. Minnesota Statutes 2012, section 282.018, subdivision 1, is amended to read:
1.4    Subdivision 1. Land on or adjacent to public waters. (a) All land which is the
1.5property of the state as a result of forfeiture to the state for nonpayment of taxes, regardless
1.6of whether the land is held in trust for taxing districts, and which borders on or is adjacent to
1.7meandered lakes and other public waters and watercourses, and the live timber growing or
1.8being thereon, is hereby withdrawn from sale except as hereinafter provided. The authority
1.9having jurisdiction over the timber on any such lands may sell the timber as otherwise
1.10provided by law for cutting and removal under such conditions as the authority may
1.11prescribe in accordance with approved, sustained yield forestry practices. The authority
1.12having jurisdiction over the timber shall reserve such timber and impose such conditions as
1.13the authority deems necessary for the protection of watersheds, wildlife habitat, shorelines,
1.14and scenic features. Within the area in Cook, Lake, and St. Louis counties described in the
1.15Act of Congress approved July 10, 1930 (46 Stat. 1020), the timber on tax-forfeited lands
1.16shall be subject to like restrictions as are now imposed by that act on federal lands.
1.17(b) Of all tax-forfeited land bordering on or adjacent to meandered lakes and other
1.18public waters and watercourses and so withdrawn from sale, a strip two rods in width,
1.19the ordinary high-water mark being the waterside boundary thereof, and the land side
1.20boundary thereof being a line drawn parallel to the ordinary high-water mark and two rods
1.21distant landward therefrom, hereby is reserved for public travel thereon, and whatever the
1.22conformation of the shore line or conditions require, the authority having jurisdiction over
1.23such lands shall reserve a wider strip for such purposes.
1.24(c) Any tract or parcel of land which has 150 feet or less of waterfront may be sold
1.25by the authority having jurisdiction over the land, in the manner otherwise provided by
1.26law for the sale of such lands, if the authority determines that it is in the public interest
1.27to do so. If the authority having jurisdiction over the land is not the commissioner of
2.1natural resources, the land may not be offered for sale without the prior approval of the
2.2commissioner of natural resources.
2.3(d) Where the authority having jurisdiction over lands withdrawn from sale under
2.4this section is not the commissioner of natural resources, the authority may submit
2.5proposals for disposition of the lands to the commissioner. The commissioner of natural
2.6resources shall evaluate the lands and their public benefits and make recommendations on
2.7the proposed dispositions to the committees of the legislature with jurisdiction over natural
2.8resources. The commissioner shall include any recommendations of the commissioner for
2.9disposition of lands withdrawn from sale under this section over which the commissioner
2.10has jurisdiction. The commissioner's recommendations may include a public sale, sale to a
2.11private party, acquisition by the Department of Natural Resources for public purposes, or a
2.12cooperative management agreement with, or transfer to, another unit of government."
