SOURCE: IC 20-43-3-4; (09)IN1145.1.2. -->     SECTION 2. IC 20-43-3-4, AS AMENDED BY P.L.146-2008, SECTION 485, IS AMENDED TO READ AS FOLLOWS [EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2009]: Sec. 4. (a) A school corporation's previous year revenue equals the amount determined under STEP TWO of the following formula:
        STEP ONE: Determine the sum of the following:
            (A) The school corporation's basic tuition support for the year that precedes the current year.
            (B) The school corporation's maximum permissible tuition support levy for calendar year 2008.
            (C) The school corporation's excise tax revenue for calendar year 2007.
        STEP TWO: Subtract from the STEP ONE result an amount equal to the reduction in the school corporation's state tuition support under any combination of subsection (b) or subsection (c). IC 20-10.1-2-1 (before its repeal), or IC 20-30-2-4.
    (b) A school corporation's previous year revenue must be reduced if:
        (1) the school corporation's state tuition support for special education or career and technical education is reduced as a result of a complaint being filed with the department after December 31, 1988, because the school program overstated the number of children enrolled in special education programs or career and technical education programs; and
        (2) the school corporation's previous year revenue has not been reduced under this subsection more than one (1) time because of a given overstatement.
The amount of the reduction equals the amount the school corporation would have received in state tuition support for special education and career and technical education because of the overstatement.
    (c) This section applies only to 2009. A school corporation's previous year revenue must be reduced if an existing elementary or secondary school located in the school corporation converts to a charter school under IC 20-24-11. The amount of the reduction equals the product of:
        (1) the sum of the amounts distributed to the conversion charter school under IC 20-24-7-3(c) and IC 20-24-7-3(d) (as effective December 31, 2008); multiplied by
