  2.  Beginning August 28, 1999, any individual, individual proprietorship, corporation, partnership, firm or association that knowingly accepts any state-administered or subsidized tax credit, tax abatement or loan in violation of subsection 1 of this section shall upon conviction be guilty of a class A misdemeanor, and such action may be brought by the attorney general in Cole County circuit court.
