Applicable to Swain County only, amends GS 105-537 to limit the use of the one-quarter percent local option sales tax to funding public school capital outlays for construction, repair, renovation, and safety and security purposes, providing for the limited use in the ballot language. Makes conforming changes to GS 105-538, and clarifies that the county is to use funds collected from local sales tax to supplement and not supplant or replace existing funds or other resources for public school construction.
