1An Act to repeal
121.91 (4) (dg) and (dr); and to amend
121.91 (4) (d) of the 2
statutes; relating to: carrying forward a school district's unused revenue limit
3authority to the succeeding school year.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, if a school district's revenue in any school year is less than
the amount of revenue that the school district is allowed under the revenue limit
formula, the school district's revenue limit in the succeeding school year is increased
by 75 percent of the difference between its actual revenue and the amount of revenue
allowed. This bill allows a school district to carry forward 100 percent of the
difference instead of 75 percent.
For further information see the state and local fiscal estimate, which will be
printed as an appendix to this bill.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
AB22, s. 1
121.91 (4) (d) of the statutes is amended to read:

than the limit under sub. (2m) in the preceding school year, the limit otherwise
applicable to the school district's revenue in the current school year under sub. (2m) 2
is increased by an amount equal to 75% of
the difference between the amount of its 3
revenue in the preceding school year and the amount of the limit in the preceding 4
school year under sub. (2m).
AB22, s. 2
121.91 (4) (dg) and (dr) of the statutes are repealed.
