141.475 Distribution from fund; amounts.

Sec. 5.

The state treasurer shall cause to be distributed from the health and safety fund the following amounts in the 1988-89 fiscal year and in each following fiscal year:

(a) One-fourth of the collections deposited in the fund under section 3(2) shall be used for indigent volume adjusters for hospitals within the medicaid program.

(b) After the distribution in subdivision (a), $16,000,000.00 of the amount deposited in the fund under section 3(2) shall be distributed as follows:

(i) Except as provided in subparagraph (iii), to a county that received a loan authorized under section 3(2) or (3) of the emergency municipal loan act, 1980 PA 243, MCL 141.933, to pay outstanding obligations of the county; for the repayment of principal and interest on any loans made to the county under the emergency municipal loan act, 1980 PA 243, MCL 141.931 to 141.942; and for the payment of principal, premium, if any, and interest due during a fiscal year on bonds issued by that county under the fiscal stabilization act, 1981 PA 80, MCL 141.1001 to 141.1011. The distributions under this subparagraph shall be made as necessary and only to the extent necessary to satisfy the obligations of the county.

(ii) Except as provided in subparagraph (iii), to the extent that $16,000,000.00 is no longer necessary to satisfy the obligations under subparagraph (i), a portion of the amount not required for satisfaction of obligations shall be distributed to each county that receives or has received a loan authorized under section 3(2) or (3) of the emergency municipal loan act, 1980 PA 243, MCL 141.933, in an amount determined by multiplying the amount available for distribution under this subparagraph by a fraction, the numerator of which is the population of the county receiving the distribution and the denominator of which is the total population of the state according to the most recent decennial census. The distribution under this subparagraph shall be made at the same times and shall be used, subject to section 6, for the same purposes described in subdivision (c). The remaining amount available for distribution under this subparagraph shall be used on a per capita basis to offset the cost to the state of the assumption of the financing of the state court system in the counties not receiving a distribution under this subparagraph.

(iii) In the 2008-2009 fiscal year through the 2014-2015 fiscal year, $16,000,000.00 of the amount deposited in the fund under section 3(2) shall be transferred to and deposited in the convention facility development fund created under the state convention facility development act, 1985 PA 106, MCL 207.621 to 207.640, for distribution and use only in the manner and for the purposes stated in that act and no amount shall be distributed under subparagraph (i) or (ii). If the transfer or lease of a qualified convention facility to a metropolitan authority takes place as provided in the regional convention facility authority act, 2008 PA 554, MCL 141.1351 to 141.1379, then in the 2015-2016 fiscal year through the 2038-2039 fiscal year, $15,000,000.00 of the amount deposited in the fund under section 3(2) shall be transferred to and deposited in the convention facility development fund created under the state convention facility development act, 1985 PA 106, MCL 207.621 to 207.640, for distribution and use only in the manner and for the purposes stated in that act and $1,000,000.00 shall be distributed under subparagraphs (i) and (ii). If the transfer and lease of a qualified convention facility to an authority is disapproved and the authority is dissolved under section 19(1) of the regional convention facility authority act, 2008 PA 554, MCL 141.1369, then in the 2015-2016 fiscal year through the 2029-2030 fiscal year, $15,000,000.00 of the amount deposited in the fund under section 3(2) shall be transferred to and deposited in the convention facility development fund created under the state convention facility development act, 1985 PA 106, MCL 207.621 to 207.640, for distribution and use only in the manner and for the purposes stated in that act and $1,000,000.00 shall be distributed under subparagraphs (i) and (ii).

(c) The remaining amount deposited in the fund under section 3(2) not distributed under subdivisions (a) and (b) shall be distributed to each county that does not receive and has never received a loan authorized under section 3(2) or (3) of the emergency municipal loan act, 1980 PA 243, MCL 141.933, on a per capita basis according to the ratio that the population of the county receiving the distribution under this subdivision, according to the most recent decennial census, bears to the total population of all counties receiving distribution under this subdivision, according to the most recent decennial census. A distribution under this subdivision shall be made each February, May, August, and November from the collections that were deposited in the fund under section 3(2) in the immediately preceding calendar quarter. Subject to section 6, 12/17 of the distribution under this subdivision shall be distributed to each local health department as defined in section 1105 of the public health code, 1978 PA 368, MCL 333.1105, in the county receiving the distribution on a per capita basis, based on the most recent decennial census, to be used only for public health prevention programs and services. This distribution is in addition to and is not intended as a replacement for any other state or county payments to these health departments. This distribution satisfies the requirements of former section 7a(3) of 1947 PA 265. The remaining 5/17 of the distribution shall be used only for 1 or more of the following:

(i) The operation, maintenance, or expansion of an existing county jail facility or juvenile facility.

(ii) The acquisition, construction, and equipping of a new jail facility or juvenile facility.

(iii) Court operations.
