  (3)  The aggregate baseline year amount of state sales tax revenues and the aggregate baseline year amount of state income tax withheld on behalf of existing employees, reported by existing businesses within the development project area.  Provisions of section 32.057 notwithstanding, municipalities will provide this information to the department of revenue for verification.  The department of revenue will verify the information provided by the municipalities within forty-five days of receiving a request for such verification from a municipality;

  (4)  An estimate of the state sales tax increment and state income tax increment within the development project area after redevelopment;

  (5)  An affidavit that is signed by the developer or developers attesting that the provision of subdivision (2) of subsection 3 of section 99.942 has been met and specifying that the development area would not be reasonably anticipated to be developed without the appropriation of the other net new revenues;

  3.  The Missouri development finance board shall make a determination regarding the application for a certificate allowing disbursements from the state supplemental downtown development fund and shall forward such determination to the director of the department of economic development.  In no event shall the amount of disbursements from the state supplemental downtown development fund approved for a project, in addition to any other state economic development funding or other state incentives, exceed the projected state benefit of the development project, as determined by the department of economic development through a cost-benefit analysis.  Any political subdivision located either wholly or partially within the development area shall be permitted to submit information to the department of economic development for consideration in its cost-benefit analysis.  Upon approval of state supplemental downtown development financing, a certificate of approval shall be issued by the department of economic development containing the terms and limitations of the disbursement.

  4.  At no time shall the annual amount of other net new revenues approved for disbursements from the state supplemental downtown development fund exceed one hundred eight million dollars.

  5.  Development projects receiving disbursements from the state supplemental downtown development fund shall be limited to receiving such disbursements for fifteen years, unless specific approval for a longer term is given by the director of the department of economic development, as set forth in the certificate of approval; except that, in no case shall the duration exceed twenty-five years.  The approved term notwithstanding, state supplemental downtown development financing shall terminate when development financing for a development project is terminated by a municipality.

  6.  The municipality shall deposit payments received from the state supplemental downtown development fund in a separate segregated account for other net new revenues within the special allocation fund.

  7.  Development project costs may include, at the prerogative of the state, the portion of salaries and expenses of the department of economic development, the Missouri development finance board, and the department of revenue reasonably allocable to each development project approved for disbursements from the state supplemental downtown development fund for the ongoing administrative functions associated with such development project.  Such amounts shall be recovered from other net new revenues deposited into the state supplemental downtown development fund created pursuant to section 99.963.

  8.  A development project approved for state supplemental downtown development financing may not thereafter elect to receive tax increment financing pursuant to the real property tax increment allocation redevelopment act, sections 99.800 to 99.865, and continue to receive state supplemental downtown development financing pursuant to sections 99.915 to 99.980.

  9.  The department of economic development, in conjunction with the Missouri development finance board, may establish the procedures and standards for the determination and approval of applications by the promulgation of rules and regulations and publish forms to implement the provisions of this section and section 99.963.

  10.  Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, that is created under the authority delegated in this section and section 99.963 shall become effective only if it complies with and is subject to all of the provisions of chapter 536 and, if applicable, section 536.028.  This section, section 99.963, and chapter 536 are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536 to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2003, shall be invalid and void.

  11.  The Missouri development finance board shall consider parity based on population and geography of the state among the regions of the state in making determinations on applications pursuant to this section.
