Provides that if the local government transfers 20 percent of the balance of the money to the general fund before June 30, 2018, the local government may use the remaining funds for purposes not prohibited by law other than under the MIF statute. The MIF statute contains certain limitations, such as a grant or loan may not be made for operation or expansion of a casino, a retail store, or a sports facility.
