Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

10-52A-15Legislative findings--Limitations on reduction of tax levy.

The Legislature hereby finds that the amendments to chapter 10-52 contained in chapter 68 of the 2002 Session Laws shall result in a broader and more uniform tax base for the tax levied by municipalities under this chapter, and that, absent a reduction in the current tax levy of a municipality, it is anticipated that total tax revenues of a municipality may increase as a result of these amendments. However, so long as a municipality has any bonds or other obligations outstanding which are secured directly or indirectly by the pledge or collection and application of taxes levied pursuant to § 10-52-8 as in effect immediately prior to July 1, 2002, no municipality may reduce its tax levy under this chapter to a rate which, in the exercise of the sound discretion of the governing body, would be expected to produce less total revenue than was collected in the immediately preceding year pursuant to the tax imposed under § 10-52-8.
