Except as provided under subdivision 3, the referendum authority under section 126C.17 of a district must be converted by the department according to this section.
(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 marginal cost 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 marginal cost pupil units for that year.
(b) The referendum allowance reduction must be applied first to the authority with the earliest expiration date.
