§338.69. Elections on tax and funding into bonds
A. The question of the funding of the tax by the several political subdivisions receiving the benefit of the avails of the tax is to be submitted to the electors of the parish at the election called by the governing authority of the parish submitting to the electors of the parish the question as to the imposition of the tax, so that the question to be acted upon by the electors of the parish at that time is to cover both the imposition of the tax and the right on the part of the several political subdivisions receiving any part or portion of these avails to fund the avails into bonds.
B. In any parish where an election has been held only to authorize the levy of a sales and use tax, pursuant to any authority, the question of the funding of the sales tax revenues may be submitted to the qualified electors of the political subdivision desiring to fund its sales tax revenues into bonds at a separate election held for such purpose in the manner provided in R.S. 47:338.65. In that event, the governing authority of the political subdivision in whose name bonds will be issued shall call, conduct and hold the election to authorize the issuance of such bonds.
