  2.  Any proposal to impose a tourism tax shall be approved by a majority of the qualified voters voting thereon before the tax shall become effective.  Any proposal to issue bonds and impose a tourism tax to retire such bonds must be approved by the constitutionally required percentage of the qualified voters voting thereon before such bonds may be issued; provided however, if a majority of the qualified voters voting thereon are in favor of the proposal, the governing body of the municipality may nevertheless impose any tourism tax submitted to the voters as a part of such proposal and use the revenues from the tourism tax for the retirement of debt under previously voter-approved bonded indebtedness.  A proposal to impose a tourism tax or to issue bonds which does not receive the requisite majority of the qualified voters voting thereon to impose a tourism tax or to issue bonds may by action of the governing body of the municipality be resubmitted at a subsequent election.  In the event a proposal to authorize the issuance of bonds and to impose a tourism tax does not receive the affirmative vote of the constitutionally required percentage of qualified voters voting thereon for the issuance of bonds but does receive the affirmative vote of a majority of the qualified voters voting thereon and the tourism tax then becomes effective, the governing body of the municipality may submit a proposal to issue bonds at a subsequent election and utilize a previously voter-approved tourism tax to retire said bonds, and in such event, the ballot of submission shall be substantially in the following language:

­

Shall the municipality of ______ (insert name of municipality) issue bonds in the amount of $______ (insert amount) for the purpose of funding ______ (insert type of improvement) and repay such bonds by using the tourism ______ (here insert "tax" or "taxes" ) previously voter approved?
