05-04-01 Request by Edward Holm
Thurston County Prosecutor

1. If the governing body of a public facilities district (PFD) created before July 31, 2002, causes construction to be commenced on a regional center before January 1, 2004, thus meeting the requirements set forth in RCW 82.14.390 for collecting a sales and use tax, may additional projects that the district lawfully selects and causes to be commenced by the district after January 1, 2004, continue to collect the tax authorized by RCW 82.14.390 if the original regional center commenced prior to January 1, 2004, is no longer allocated any of the sales and use tax previously collected under RCW 82.14.390?

2. Would the interlocal agreements which contemplate the creation of more than one regional center that would commence construction after January 1, 2004, have an effect on the answer to this question?
