  393.302.  Tax on energy consumption, ordinance imposing tax, ballot measure required. — Notwithstanding the provisions of section 393.299, a political subdivision may by ordinance impose a tax upon persons who use or consume gas, electricity or energy services within such political subdivision but who take title to such gas, electricity or energy services outside of that political subdivision.  Any person liable for the tax under this section, upon proof that such person has paid a tax in another state or political subdivision with respect to a charge for the sale or transfer of such gas, electricity or energy services, shall be allowed a credit against the tax authorized by this section, to the extent of the amount of the tax legally due and paid in the other state or political subdivision with respect to such charge.  The tax shall be measured by all charges for gas, electricity or energy services by the person using or consuming the gas, electricity or energy services at a rate equal to the rate of the applicable business license tax, as authorized in section 66.300, section 71.610, section 92.045, section 94.110 or 94.360, or the applicable franchise fee.  Such tax shall not become effective unless the governing body of the political subdivision submits to the voters of that political subdivision at any public election allowed pursuant to subsection 1 of section 115.123 a proposal to impose a tax under the provisions of this section.  The question shall be submitted to the voters in substantially the following form:

­

Shall the ______ (political subdivision) levy a tax for the purpose of equalizing the obligations of all users of gas, electricity or energy services of a percent which is equal to the obligations of current taxpayers on the purchase price of gas, electricity or energy services sold by any person, corporation or other business entity for ultimate use in the political subdivision but not subject to the current tax?
☐ YES ☐ NO

If a majority of the votes cast on the question by the qualified voters voting thereon are in favor of the question, then the tax shall become effective on the first day of the first calendar quarter following the calendar quarter in which the election was held.  If a majority of the votes cast on the question by the qualified voters voting thereon are opposed to the question, then the governing body of the political subdivision shall have no power to impose the tax authorized by this section unless and until the governing body of the political subdivision again submits the question to the qualified voters of the political subdivision and such question is approved by a majority of the qualified voters voting on the question.
