1. A school board may raise an additional enrichment amount for purposes of funding an asbestos project under section 279.52 as provided in this section.
2. The board shall determine the additional enrichment amount needed for an asbestos project, within the limits of this section, and shall direct the county commissioner of elections to submit the question of whether to raise that amount under this section and section 279.54 for a period not exceeding five years, to the registered voters of the school district at a regular school election held during September of the base year or at a special election held not later than February 15 of the base year or February 15, 1995, whichever is earlier. Only one election on the question shall be held during a twelve-month period. If a majority of those voting on the question favors raising the additional enrichment amount for an asbestos project, the board may include the approved amount in its certified budget.

The additional enrichment amount needed for an asbestos project shall be raised within the limits provided in this section by an enrichment property tax or by a combination of an enrichment property tax and a school district income surtax. The method of raising the additional enrichment amount shall be determined by the board. Subject to the limitation in section 298.14, if the board uses a combination of an enrichment property tax and a school district income surtax, for each fiscal year the board shall determine the percent of income surtax to be expressed as full percentage points, not to exceed twenty percent.
