126C.16 Referendum and desegregation revenue conversion.
Subdivision 1. Revenue conversion. Except as provided under subdivision 3, the referendum authority under section 126C.17 and the levy authority under section 124.912, subdivisions 2 and 3, of a district must be converted by the department according to this section.
Subd. 2. Rate adjustment. The department must adjust a district's referendum authority for a referendum approved before July 1, 1991, excluding authority based on a dollar amount, and the levy authority under section 124.912, subdivisions 2 and 3, by multiplying the sum of the rates authorized by a district under section 126C.17 and the rates in section 124.912, subdivisions 2 and 3, by the ratio determined under subdivision 2 for the assessment year for which the revenue is attributable. The adjusted rates for assessment year 1993 apply to later years for which the revenue is authorized.
Subd. 3. Per pupil revenue conversion. (a) The department must convert each district's referendum revenue authority for fiscal year 2002 and later years to an allowance per pupil unit as follows: the revenue allowance equals the amount determined by dividing the district's maximum revenue under section 126C.17, for fiscal year 2001 by the district's 2000-2001 resident pupil units. A district's maximum revenue for all later years for which the revenue is authorized equals the revenue allowance times the district's resident pupil units for that year.
(b) The referendum allowance reduction must be applied first to the authority with the earliest expiration date.
