proposed district to petition the county commissioners for the
establishment of a single countywide highway district. This
legislation would provide for 10% or more of the qualified

dissolution of the single countywide highway district.
Other terms and conditions of dissolution of the single
countywide highway remain unchanged.
This law will have no direct fiscal impact on state or local
