Section 1 [Security for lease of state forest land] authorizes DNR to require a security deposit or other form of security to ensure that improvements and personal property are not left on state forest land when a lease of that expires. Current law already allows the DNR to require a performance bond for this purpose.

Section 2 [Security for lease of unsold land] authorizes DNR to require a performance bond, security deposit, or other form of security to ensure that improvements and personal property are not left on unsold state lands when a least of that land expires.

Section 3 [Online sales of surplus state-owned land] authorizes DNR to conduct sales of surplus state-owned land through online auction.

Section 4 [Additions to state parks] adds additional land to the statutory boundaries of Frontenac State Park (Goodhue County), Minneopa State Park (Blue Earth County), and St. Croix State Park (Pine County).

Section 5 [Deletions from state parks] removes a portion of land from St. Croix Park (Pine County).

Section 6 [Additions to state forests] adds additional land to Badoura State Forest (Hubbard County) and Snake River State Forest (Kanabec County).

Section 7 [Repealer] repeals a 2008 deletion of land from Jay Cooke State Park (Carlton County).
