HOUSE MOTION ____

MR. SPEAKER:

    I move that Engrossed Senate Bill 556 be amended to read as follows:

SOURCE: Page 19, line 41; (03)MO055611.19. -->     Page 19, between lines 41 and 42, begin a new paragraph and insert:
SOURCE: IC 6-1.1-21.8-4; (03)MO055611.12. -->     "SECTION 12. IC 6-1.1-21.8-4, AS ADDED BY P.L.157-2002, SECTION 1, IS AMENDED TO READ AS FOLLOWS [EFFECTIVE UPON PASSAGE]: Sec. 4. (a) The board shall determine the terms of a loan made under this chapter. However, the interest charged on the loan may not exceed the percent of increase in the United States Department of Labor Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers during the most recent twelve (12) month period for which data is available as of the date that the unit applies for a loan under this chapter. In the case of a qualified taxing unit that is not a:
        (1) school corporation;
        (2) city;
        (3) town; or
        (4) county;

a loan must be repaid not later than ten (10) years after the date on which the loan was made. In the case of a qualified taxing unit described in subdivisions (1) through (4), a loan must be repaid not later than eleven (11) years after the date on which the loan was made. A qualified taxing unit described in subdivisions (1) through (4) is not required to begin making payments to repay a loan until after June 30, 2004. The total amount of all the loans made under this

chapter may not exceed twenty-eight million dollars ($28,000,000). The board may disburse the proceeds of a loan in installments. However, not more than one-third (1/3) of the total amount to be loaned under this chapter may be disbursed at any particular time without the review of the budget committee and the approval of the budget agency.
    (b) A loan made under this chapter shall be repaid only from:
        (1) property tax revenues of the qualified taxing unit that are subject to the levy limitations imposed by IC 6-1.1-18.5 or IC 6-1.1-19; or
        (2) any other source of revenues (other than property taxes) that is legally available to the qualified taxing unit.
The payment of any installment of principal constitutes a first charge against the property tax revenues described in subdivision (1) that are collected by the qualified taxing unit during the calendar year the installment is due and payable.
    (c) The obligation to repay a loan made under this chapter is not a basis for the qualified taxing unit to obtain an excessive tax levy under IC 6-1.1-18.5 or IC 6-1.1-19.
    (d) Whenever the board receives a payment on a loan made under this chapter, the board shall deposit the amount paid in the counter-cyclical revenue and economic stabilization fund.
    (e) This section does not prohibit a qualified taxing unit from repaying a loan made under this chapter before the date specified in subsection (a) if a taxpayer described in section 3 of this chapter resumes paying property taxes to the qualified taxing unit.
    (f) Interest accrues on a loan made under this chapter until the date the board receives notice from the county auditor that the county has adopted at least one (1) of the following:
        (1) The county adjusted gross income tax under IC 6-3.5-1.1.
        (2) The county option income tax under IC 6-3.5-6.
        (3) The county economic development income tax under IC 6-3.5-7.
Notwithstanding subsection (a), interest may not be charged on a loan made under this chapter if a tax described in this subsection is adopted before a qualified taxing unit applies for the loan.".

    Renumber all SECTIONS consecutively.
