A. The avails of the tax imposed by R.S. 47:302 and the avails of the tax imposed

by R.S. 47:331 from the sales of services as defined in R.S. 47:301(14)(a) in the parish of

St. James under the provisions of R.S. 47:302(C), 331(C), and 332, as applicable, shall be

credited to the Bond Security and Redemption Fund, and after a sufficient amount is

allocated from that fund to pay all the obligations secured by the full faith and credit of the

state which become due and payable within any fiscal year, the treasurer shall pay the

remainder of such funds into a special fund which is hereby created in the state treasury and

designated as the "St. James Parish Enterprise Fund".

B. The monies in the St. James Parish Enterprise Fund shall be subject to an annual

appropriation by the legislature. The monies in the fund shall be available for use by the

governing authority of St. James Parish to promote tourism and economic development-related activities and for acquisition of land and acquisition, construction, maintenance, and

repair of buildings and parking areas for use for the St. James Convention Facility or the St.

James Parish Tourist Information Welcome Center, and other multipurpose buildings,

including an agricultural arena and farmer's market.

C. The parish of St. James may issue bonds payable from a pledge and dedication

such bonds are issued, the legislature shall annually appropriate, to the extent of deposits in

the fund, monies sufficient to pay the principal, interest, and premium, if any, due on the

bonds each year. If the legislature, after a diligent and good faith effort, fails to appropriate

sufficient monies to pay the principal, interest, and premium, if any, due on the bonds each

year, or if such appropriation cannot be effected, the state shall in no way be a party to any

contractual rights arising from the bonds issued, nor shall the state be in any way obligated

for any payments due to holders of the bonds issued under the provisions of this Section.
