The several boards of county commissioners in the State are hereby expressly authorized
and empowered to make such appropriations from the general funds of their county as
will enable them to cooperate effectively with the state Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services and Federal Department of Agriculture in the eradication of
tuberculosis in their respective counties: Provided, that if in 10 days after said
appropriation is voted, one fifth of the qualified voters of the county petition the
board of commissioners to submit the question of tuberculosis eradication or no tuberculosis
eradication to the voters of the county, said commissioners shall submit such questions
to said voters. Said election shall be held and conducted under G.S. 163A-1592. If at any such election a majority of the votes cast shall be in favor of said tuberculosis
eradication, the said board shall record the result of the election upon its minutes,
and cooperative tuberculosis eradication shall be taken up with the state Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Services and Federal Department of Agriculture. If, however, a majority of the votes cast shall be adverse, then said board shall
make no appropriation.
