  • Appropriates $4,100,000, of which $2,200,000 will be distributed to each of the 44 counties in equal amounts and $1,900,000 will be distributed to the 44 counties in the proportion that the population of the county bears to the population of the state (Sec. 2-8).

  • Specifies if the dollar amount of money available in any quarter does not equal the amount paid in the fourth quarter of the calendar year 1999, each special purpose taxing district's payment shall be reduced proportionately (Sec. 2.c.ii).

  • Specifies if a special purpose taxing district is dissolved or disincorporated, the state tax commission will continuously distribute to the board of county commissioners an amount equal to the last quarter's distribution before dissolution or disincorporation. The board of county commissioners will determine any redistribution of money so received (Sec. 10.c.v).
