II. On March 13, 2012 the Newfound area school district, by vote at its 2012 deliberative session, adopted the provisions of RSA 32:5-b. Implementing the tax cap for the Newfound area school district began with the preparation of the fiscal year 2014 budget.

III. The Newfound area school district is the only school district that has adopted the provisions of RSA 32:5-b.

IV. The implementation of this act is limited to the calculation of the Newfound area school district budget for fiscal year 2014 and has no further application.

For the purpose of determining compliance with the tax cap adopted under RSA 32:5-c by the Newfound area school district, the amount to which the tax cap shall be applied in preparing the budget committee’s 2014 fiscal year budget shall be the amount of local taxes raised for the 2013 fiscal year without reduction for any lapsed balances pursuant to RSA 32:7 brought forward to reduce taxes.
