Sec. 2.7 . (a) A county fiscal body may adopt an ordinance to impose a tax rate for correctional facilities and rehabilitation facilities in the county. The tax rate must be in increments of one-hundredth of one percent (0.01%) and may not exceed two-tenths of one percent (0.2%). The tax rate may not be in effect for more than twenty-two (22) years. If an ordinance is adopted after June 30, 2019, to impose a tax rate under this section, not more than twenty percent (20%) of the revenue from the tax rate under this section may be used for operating expenses for correctional facilities and rehabilitation facilities in the county.
(b) The revenue generated by a tax rate imposed under this section must be distributed directly to the county before the remainder of the expenditure rate revenue is distributed. The revenue shall be maintained in a separate dedicated county fund and used by the county only for paying for correctional facilities and rehabilitation facilities in the county.
