"(d)  If the board of trustees votes to increase the mill levy beyond two (2) mills as authorized by subsection (c) of this section, the board of county commissioners shall call an election within the district upon the question of whether the mill levy should be increased beyond two (2) mills.  The election shall be called, conducted and canvassed as provided for bond elections by the Political Subdivision Bond Election Law, W.S. 22-21-101 through 22-21-112, on the first date authorized under W.S. 22-21-103 which is not less than sixty (60) days after the trustees vote to increase the mill levy beyond two (2) mills.  In no event shall the tax in a district exceed in any one (1) year the amount of four (4) mills on each dollar of assessed valuation of property.  The increase in mill levy is effective only if the question is approved by a majority of those voting thereon within the rural health care district.  The cost of any special election under this subsection shall be borne by the board of trustees.

(e)  If the proposition to authorize an additional mill levy is approved, the same proposition or a proposition to impose a mill levy in a different amount, not to exceed two (2) mills, shall be submitted to the voters, until defeated, at the general election held every four (4) years thereafter. If the proposition to impose or continue the tax is defeated, the proposition shall not again be submitted to the electors for at least twenty-three (23) months.".  DAVISON
