    (o) This subsection applies to a county having a population of more than thirty-nine thousand (39,000) but less than thirty-nine thousand six hundred (39,600). Except as provided in subsection (p), in addition to the rates permitted under subsection (b):

    (q) If the county economic development income tax is imposed as authorized under subsection (p) at a rate that exceeds the maximum rate that would otherwise apply under this section, the certified distribution must be used for the purpose provided in section 25(e) or 26 of this chapter to the extent that the certified distribution results from the difference between:

SOURCE: IC 6-3.5-7-23; (09)CR034801.3. -->     SECTION 3. IC 6-3.5-7-23, AS AMENDED BY P.L.146-2008, SECTION 349, IS AMENDED TO READ AS FOLLOWS [EFFECTIVE UPON PASSAGE]: Sec. 23. (a) This section applies only to the following:
        (1)
A county having a population of more than fifty-five thousand (55,000) but less than sixty-five thousand (65,000).
         (2) Any other county:
            (A) for which a library services plan has been approved under IC 36-12.1 and is in effect; and
            (B) that does not contain more than two (2) public library districts.
    (b) As used in this section, "appropriate body" means the entity that imposes the county economic development income tax under section 5(a) of this chapter.

    (b) (c) The county council appropriate body may by ordinance determine that, in order to promote the development of libraries in the county and thereby encourage economic development, it is necessary to use economic development income tax revenue to replace library property taxes in the county. However, a county council the appropriate body may adopt an ordinance under this subsection only if all territory in the county is included in a library district.
    (c) (d) If the county council appropriate body makes a

determination under subsection (b), (c), the county council appropriate body may adopt an ordinance to designate the county economic development income tax revenue generated by the tax rate adopted under section 5 of this chapter, or revenue generated by a portion of the tax rate, as revenue that will be used to replace public library property taxes imposed by public libraries in the county. The county council appropriate body may not designate for library property tax replacement purposes any county economic development income tax revenue that is generated by a tax rate of more than fifteen-hundredths percent (0.15%).
    (e) This subsection applies to an ordinance adopted after December 31, 2008. The appropriate body may not adopt an ordinance under this section designating county economic development income tax revenue to replace public library property taxes if the designation would cause the county or a city or town in the county to receive a certified distribution less than the amount of economic development income tax pledged by the county, city, or town for any purpose permitted by IC 5-1-14 or any other statute.
    (f) Subject to the provisions of this section, the appropriate body may adopt either of the following:
        (1) An ordinance to increase or decrease the amount of county economic development income tax revenue that will be used to replace public library property taxes imposed in the county.
        (2) An ordinance to rescind the use of county economic development income tax revenue to replace public library property taxes imposed in the county.
The appropriate body may not adopt an ordinance under this subsection to decrease the amount of or rescind the county economic development income tax
revenue used to replace public library property taxes imposed in the county if that county economic development income tax revenue has been pledged by a public library for any purpose permitted by IC 5-1-14 or any other statute.
    (d) (g) If the appropriate body adopts an ordinance under this section, the county treasurer shall establish a library property tax replacement fund to be used only for the purposes described in this

section. County economic development income tax revenues derived from the portion of the tax rate designated for property tax replacement credits under subsection (c) (d) shall be deposited in the library property tax replacement fund before certified distributions are made under section 12 of this chapter. Any interest earned on money in the library property tax replacement fund shall be credited to the library property tax replacement fund.
    (e) (h) The amount of county economic development income tax revenue dedicated to providing library property tax replacement credits shall, in the manner prescribed in this section, be allocated to public libraries operating in the county and shall be used by those public libraries as property tax replacement credits. The amount of property tax replacement credits that each public library in the county is entitled to receive during a calendar year under this section equals the lesser of:
        (1) the product of:
            (A) the amount of revenue deposited by the county auditor in the library property tax replacement fund; multiplied by
            (B) a fraction described as follows:
                (i) The numerator of the fraction equals the sum of the total property taxes that would have been collected by the public library during the previous calendar year from taxpayers located within the library district if the property tax replacement under this section had not been in effect.
                (ii) The denominator of the fraction equals the sum of the total property taxes that would have been collected during the previous year from taxpayers located within the county by all public libraries that are eligible to receive property tax replacement credits under this section if the property tax replacement under this section had not been in effect; or
        (2) the total property taxes that would otherwise be collected by the public library for the calendar year if the property tax replacement credit under this section were not in effect.
The department of local government finance shall make any adjustments necessary to account for the expansion of a library district. However, a public library is eligible to receive property tax replacement credits under this section only if it has entered into reciprocal borrowing agreements with all other public libraries in the county. If the total amount of county economic development income

tax revenue deposited by the county auditor in the library property tax replacement fund for a calendar year exceeds the total property tax liability that would otherwise be imposed for public libraries in the county for the year, the excess shall remain in the library property tax replacement fund and shall be used for library property tax replacement purposes in the following calendar year.
    (f) (i) Notwithstanding subsection (e), (h), if a public library did not impose a property tax levy during the previous calendar year, that public library is entitled to receive a part of the property tax replacement credits to be distributed for the calendar year. The amount of property tax replacement credits the public library is entitled to receive during the calendar year equals the product of:
        (1) the amount of revenue deposited in the library property tax replacement fund; multiplied by
        (2) a fraction. The numerator of the fraction equals the budget of the public library for that calendar year. The denominator of the fraction equals the aggregate budgets of public libraries in the county for that calendar year.
If for a calendar year a public library is allocated a part of the property tax replacement credits under this subsection, then the amount of property tax credits distributed to other public libraries in the county for the calendar year shall be reduced by the amount to be distributed as property tax replacement credits under this subsection. The department of local government finance shall make any adjustments required by this subsection and provide the adjustments to the county auditor.
    (g) (j) The department of local government finance shall inform the county auditor of the amount of property tax replacement credits that each public library in the county is entitled to receive under this section. The county auditor shall certify to each public library the amount of property tax replacement credits that the public library is entitled to receive during that calendar year. The county auditor shall also certify these amounts to the county treasurer.
    (h) (k) A public library receiving property tax replacement credits under this section shall allocate the credits among each fund for which a distinct property tax levy is imposed. The amount that must be allocated to each fund equals:
        (1) the amount of property tax replacement credits provided to the

public library under this section; multiplied by
        (2) the amount determined in STEP THREE of the following formula:
            STEP ONE: Determine the property taxes that would have been collected for each fund by the public library during the previous calendar year if the property tax replacement under this section had not been in effect.
            STEP TWO: Determine the sum of the total property taxes that would have been collected for all funds by the public library during the previous calendar year if the property tax replacement under this section had not been in effect.
            STEP THREE: Divide the STEP ONE amount by the STEP TWO amount.
However, if a public library did not impose a property tax levy during the previous calendar year or did not impose a property tax levy for a particular fund during the previous calendar year, but the public library is imposing a property tax levy in the current calendar year or is imposing a property tax levy for the particular fund in the current calendar year, the department of local government finance shall adjust the amount of property tax replacement credits allocated among the various funds of the public library and shall provide the adjustment to the county auditor. If a public library receiving property tax replacement credits under this section does not impose a property tax levy for a particular fund that is first due and payable in a calendar year in which the property tax replacement credits are being distributed, the public library is not required to allocate to that fund a part of the property tax replacement credits to be distributed to the public library. Notwithstanding IC 6-1.1-20-1.1(1), a public library that receives property tax replacement credits under this section is subject to the procedures for the issuance of bonds set forth in IC 6-1.1-20.
    (i) (l) For each public library that receives property tax credits under this section, the department of local government finance shall certify to the county auditor the property tax rate applicable to each fund after the property tax replacement credits are allocated.
    (j) (m) A public library shall treat property tax replacement credits received during a particular calendar year under this section as a part of the public library's property tax levy for each fund for that same calendar year for purposes of fixing the public library's budget and for

purposes of the property tax levy limits imposed by IC 6-1.1-18.5.
    (k) (n) For the purpose of computing and distributing certified distributions under IC 6-3.5-1.1 and tax revenue under IC 6-5.5 or IC 6-6-5, the property tax replacement credits that are received under this section shall be treated as though they were property taxes that were due and payable during that same calendar year.".

        (2) why the chosen library service model will result in the delivery of better library services than would result under a consolidated countywide public library system.

    (g) The committee may not approve a plan unless the plan provides for library services to all areas of the county.
     (h) If a committee determines that there are areas in the county that are underserved by public library systems, the planning committee shall consider the option of having a public library enter into an interlocal agreement with one (1) or more school corporations in the county to allow the public library to use the school buildings of the school corporation to better serve the underserved areas.
    (i) Notwithstanding any other law, a plan may change the number of appointments that may be made by an appointing person or entity to the library board of a library covered by the plan. However, the plan may not change:
        (1) the total number of appointments that may be made to the library board; or
        (2) the persons or entities that make the appointments to the library board.
If the plan increases the number of appointments to the library board that may be made by a particular person or entity, the plan

must provide for a corresponding decrease in the number of appointments to the library board that may be made by another person or entity. Notwithstanding any other law, a change in the number of appointments to the library board that may be made by an appointing person or entity takes effect as specified in the plan.
    (j) If a plan provides that two (2) or more public library systems shall be consolidated into one (1) remaining public library system, no library operated by any of the public library systems that are consolidated may be closed during the three (3) years following the effective date of the plan.
