Rs 32:1306.1 Inspection And Maintenance Program Fees; Nonattainment Area; Local Election

§1306.1. Inspection and maintenance program fees; nonattainment area; local election

A. Upon adoption of a proposition approved by the voters of a nonattainment area parish as provided for in this Section, seven dollars shall be charged for each inspection that includes the performance of the inspection and maintenance (I/M) program pursuant to the provisions of R.S. 30:2054(B)(8) for 1980 or newer model year motor vehicles. This charge shall be in addition to the charge or fee provided for in R.S. 32:1306(C)(3)(a).

B. As the legislature finds that the use of mass transit by its citizens would result in reduced ozone formation, the Department of Public Safety and Corrections shall transfer the charge authorized by this Section to local entities for the improvement and development of mass transit systems. However, fifty percent of the charge authorized by this Section and collected for motor vehicle inspections in East Baton Rouge Parish shall be transferred directly to the Capital Area Transit System, R.S. 48:1451, et. seq. and shall be operating revenue or income, as defined by R.S. 48:756(C)(3), used in calculating the Capital Area Transit System's distribution as described in R.S. 48:756(B)(2). The remaining fifty percent of the charge authorized by this Section and collected for motor vehicle inspections in East Baton Rouge Parish shall be transferred to the governing authority of East Baton Rouge Parish to improve and develop mass transit systems. The money so transferred to the governing authority of East Baton Rouge Parish or to the Capital Area Transit System, R.S. 48:1451, et. seq., shall not displace, replace, or supplant funding currently expended for the Capital Area Transit System, R.S. 48:1451, et. seq. The charge authorized by this Section and collected for motor vehicle inspections in other nonattainment area parishes shall be transferred to the parish governing authority of that parish to develop mass transit systems.

C.(1) The parish governing authority may, by ordinance or resolution, call an election for the purpose of submitting to the qualified electors of the parish the question of whether the charge authorized by this Section will be assessed in that parish. Such election shall be held at the same time as the statewide election scheduled for either October 2, 2010, or November 2, 2010. Any resolution calling the election authorized in this Section shall state whether the election will be held on October 2, 2010, or November 2, 2010.

(2) The ballot for the election shall state as follows:

"Local Option Election

Within ________ (name of parish within the nonattainment area), shall an additional seven dollars be charged for each motor vehicle inspection that includes the performance of the inspection and maintenance (I/M) program with the additional seven dollar charge being used for mass transit purposes? YES ( ) NO ( )"

(3) If the question of such charge is approved by a majority of the qualified electors voting on the proposition in the parish, then the charge authorized by this Section shall be implemented in that parish.

(4) The secretary of state shall prepare the ballot for the election.

(5) Except as otherwise provided, the election required shall be conducted in accordance with the Louisiana Election Code.

(6) Notwithstanding Chapter 8-A of the Louisiana Election Code, the costs of the election required in this Section shall be borne by the state.

D. The provisions of this Section shall not apply in the parishes of Livingston and Ascension.

Acts 2010, No. 995, §1.
