Bill Number: 1529 Ratification Number: 529 Act Number 744 Introducing Body: Senate Subject: Relating to the authorized tax millage for school purposes in York County
(A744, R529, S1529)
AN ACT TO AMEND ACT 292 OF 1987, AS AMENDED, RELATING TO THE AUTHORIZED TAX MILLAGE FOR SCHOOL PURPOSES IN YORK COUNTY, SO AS TO INCREASE THIS AUTHORIZED MILLAGE AND TO INCREASE THE AMOUNT OF MILLAGE WHICH THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ANY SCHOOL DISTRICT IN YORK COUNTY MAY LEVY OVER THAT OF THE PREVIOUS YEAR WITHOUT APPROVAL OF THE QUALIFIED ELECTORS OF THE DISTRICT IN A REFERENDUM.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Section 1 of Act 292 of 1987, as last amended by Act 307 of 1989, is further amended to read:
"Section 1. The auditor of York County shall levy and the treasurer shall collect a tax of thirty-three mills for school purposes to be distributed to the four school districts in the county as follows: thirty-two mills must be distributed to each of the four districts; however, one additional mill must be distributed to the district with the lowest assessed value. The thirty-two-mill distribution to the four school districts must be in the proportion to the ratio which each school district's one hundred thirty-five day enrollment (average daily membership) bears to the one hundred thirty-five day enrollment (average daily membership) in the county. Enrollment in parochial schools or other nonpublic schools may not be counted for these purposes, and these schools are not allowed the use of the proceeds of the taxes imposed by this act."
Millage limitation raised
SECTION 2. The four-mill limitation as provided by law which allows the board of trustees of any school district of York County to increase the millage levied for school operating purposes of the district by not more than four mills in any year over that levied for the preceding year without the approval of the qualified electors of the district in a referendum is hereby increased to six mills, provided that for Rock Hill School District No. 3 this limitation for the year 1990 is increased to eight mills and thereafter reverts in succeeding years to six mills.
SECTION 3. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Approved the 3rd day of May, 1990.
