Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Counties Code, the Motor Fuel Tax Law, and  the  State      
   Finance  Act.  Allows the county board of any county, upon approval by      
   the electors, to impose a tax of up to 4 cents  per  gallon  upon  all      
   persons engaged in the county in the business of selling motor fuel at      
   retail for the operation of motor vehicles upon public highways or for      
   the  operation of recreational watercraft upon waterways, by ordinance      
   or resolution.  Provides that, if the county imposes a motor fuel  tax      
   by  referendum,  then the county shall no longer collect a tax imposed      
   by the County Motor Fuel Tax Law.  Provides that for every dollar  the      
   county  collects under this Section, the county shall receive a dollar      
   from the road fund.  Requires the Department of Revenue to administer,      
   collect, and enforce the tax.  Effective immediately.                       
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE                                           
          In the opinion of DCCA, HB 2000 fails to create a State mandate      
          under the State Mandates Act.
