17:97.2 Formula for minimum foundation program; additional funds not to be used in formula
A. Notwithstanding any contrary provision of law, beginning with the 1983-84 fiscal year, in the calculation of local support in any formula adopted by the Louisiana State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education and approved by the legislature as required by Article VIII, Section 13(B) of the Louisiana Constitution for the allocation of funds to insure a minimum foundation program of education in all public elementary and secondary schools, the gross yield derived by applying the millage rate required by the formula to the current assessed value of any mineral resource properties which are under protest pending litigation on the interstate commerce status of such property at the time of assessment, shall be deducted from the entire gross yield derived by applying said millage rate to the current assessed value of all taxable property used in such calculation.
B. The Louisiana Tax Commission shall provide the Department of Education all necessary information relative to the assessed value of such mineral resource properties as may be required for the calculations provided for in this Section.
C. However, if as a result of the court decision rendered in any such litigation, the mineral resource properties in question are determined to be taxable, then the total cumulative yield derived by applying the millage rate required by the formula to the assessed value of said properties in each of the fiscal years that said deductions were made shall be taken into account in the calculation of that parish or city school board's amount of local support in any formula or appropriation of state funds for purposes of providing a minimum foundation program of education in the subsequent fiscal year.
