1.15share of all health and human service programs and services required by state or federal
1.16law. The commissioner of revenue shall provide estimates to the commissioner of human
1.17services of the expected revenue from this dedication in each county. The commissioner
1.18of human services will devise a mechanism for collecting and allocating the sum of these
1.19dedications within each county between programs as necessary to meet federal match
1.20requirements. Any contribution in excess of the amount needed to meet federal match
1.21requirements shall be spent on the various programs at the discretion of the county.

2.9year 2011 property tax levy. In calendar year 2013 and future years, a county's revenue
