Effective the first day of July, two thousand four, two thirds of one percent of all proceeds of the tax imposed by this article shall be distributed back to the counties in which they were collected. Effective the first day of July, two thousand five, and after that, one percent of all proceeds of the tax imposed by this article shall be distributed back to the counties in which they were collected. The proceeds distributed may be used for any governmental purpose, including, but not limited to, public education.


NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to require that one percent of all sales tax collected be distributed back into the county in which it was collected; and to provide that the funds may be used for any governmental purpose, including, but not limited to, public education.
