Section 1 (144.121, subd. 1a) includes security screening systems that are used in correctional and detention facilities for security screenings of humans who are in custody of the facility in the list of facilities that use ionizing radiation- producing equipment and are required to pay a base fee of $100 and then an additional fee of $100 to the Commissioner of Health.

Section 2 (144.121, subd. 9) exempts the operators of a security screening system from having to meet the examination requirement and the facility from having to meet the inspection requirement and permits a variance in accordance with rules.   This exemption expires when permanent rules are published in the State Register by the Commissioner of Health regarding the security screening systems.

Section 3 authorizes the Commissioner of Health to adopt rules for screening security systems. Sets a deadline for adopting rules and provides for the rulemaking authority to be repealed if rules are not adopted by the deadline.  Precludes this rulemaking authority from being used to amend or repeal these rules.

Section 4 is a blank appropriation for fiscal year 2019 from the state government special revenue fund to the Commissioner of Health to promulgate rules for screening security systems.  The base for this appropriation is set to an as-yet unspecified amount for fiscal year 2020 and $0 in fiscal year 2021.
