97.39. Computations; Santa Clara County fire districts. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the amount of each allocation that was made to the Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund of the County of Santa Clara in any fiscal year, up to and including the 1996–97 fiscal year, as the result of a reduction amount calculated pursuant to Section 97.2 or 97.3 for the Los Altos County Fire Protection District, the Santa Clara County Central Fire Protection District, the Saratoga Fire Protection District, or the South Santa Clara County Fire District, shall be deemed correct.

(b) No reduction or correction may be made, in response to a calculation error, to an allocation that was made to the Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund of the County of Santa Clara in any fiscal year, up to and including the 1996–97 fiscal year, as the result of a reduction amount calculated pursuant to Section 97.2 or 97.3 for a County of Santa Clara fire district listed in subdivision (a). However, in the 1997–98 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, each allocation that is made to the Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund of the County of Santa Clara as the result of a reduction amount calculated pursuant to Section 97.2 or 97.3 for a County of Santa

Clara fire district listed in subdivision (a) shall be made in that amount that fully reflects any reduction or correction that would be required to be made to a corresponding allocation in a prior fiscal year in the absence of this section.
