31their actual receipts by the number of months they participated,
32and the result multiplied by 12.
33     Section 44.  (1)  Beginning October 1, 2005, the Department
34of Revenue shall withhold $1,800,000 in nine equal monthly
35installments from the amounts to be distributed to a unit of
36local government which is consolidated as provided by s. 9, Art.

38Art. VIII, 1968 revised constitution, pursuant to s. 218.245(3),

41chapter 2003-402, Laws of Florida, regarding the increase in
42distributions to the Revenue Sharing Trust Fund for
43Municipalities pursuant to s. 212.20(6)(d)6., Florida Statutes.
44The purpose of the review shall be to determine if the increase
45in the distribution made to the consolidated unit of local
46government was appropriate when compared to the distributions
47made to other units of local government. The office shall submit
48its findings to the Legislative Budget Commission by September
491, 2005. If the commission, after receiving the findings,
50determines that the distributions to the consolidated unit of

53deems appropriate, to the unit of local government. If the

62provided by s. 9, Art. VIII of the State Constitution of 1885,
63as preserved by s. 6(e), Art. VIII, 1968 revised constitution.
64The purpose of the review shall be to determine if the effects
65on the state-shared revenues received by the consolidated unit
66of local government as a county were consistent with the effects
67on other counties, including home rule charter counties, and
68whether the effects on state-shared revenues received as a
69municipality were consistent with the effects on other
70municipalities. The review shall be submitted to the President
71of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives by
72February 1, 2006.
