BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF SOUTH DAKOTA:
     Section  1.  That § 10-12-42 be amended to read as follows:
     10-12-42.   For taxes payable in 2006 2007 and each year thereafter, the levy for the general fund of a school district shall be as follows:
             (1)      The maximum tax levy shall be eleven ten dollars and nineteen cents per thousand dollars of taxable valuation subject to the limitations on agricultural property as provided in subdivision (2) of this section, owner-occupied property as provided for in subdivision (3) of this section, and nonagricultural acreage property as provided for in subdivision (4) of this section;
             (2)      The maximum tax levy on agricultural property for such school district shall be three dollars and nineteen three cents per thousand dollars of taxable valuation. If the district's levies are less than the maximum levies as stated in this section, the levies shall maintain the same proportion to each other as represented in the mathematical relationship at the maximum levies;
             (3)      The maximum tax levy for an owner-occupied single-family dwelling as defined in § 10-13-40, for such school district may not exceed five four dollars and thirteen seventy-six cents per thousand dollars of taxable valuation. If the district's levies are less than the maximum levies as stated in this section, the levies shall maintain the same proportion to each other as represented in the mathematical relationship at the maximum levies; and
             (4)      The maximum tax levy on nonagricultural acreage property as defined in § 10-6- 33.14, for such school district shall be four dollars and nineteen three cents per thousand dollars of taxable valuation. If the district's levies are less than the maximum levies as stated in this section, the levies shall maintain the same proportion to each other as represented in the mathematical relationship at the maximum levies.
     All levies in this section shall be imposed on valuations where the median level of assessment represents eighty-five percent of market value as determined by the Department of Revenue and Regulation. These valuations shall be used for all school funding purposes. If the district has imposed an excess levy pursuant to § 10-12-43, the levies shall maintain the same proportion to each other as represented in the mathematical relationship at the maximum levies in this section. The school district may elect to tax at less than the maximum amounts set forth in this section.
