(2) An offset of all or part of a district's obligation to levy the tax described in division (B) of section 3318.05 of the Revised Code, which shall be applied only in the manner prescribed in division (B) of this section.

(B) No school district board shall apply any local donated contribution under division (A)(2) of this section unless the Ohio school facilities commission first approves that application.

Upon the request of the school district board to apply local donated contribution under division (A)(2) of this section, the commission in consultation with the department of taxation shall determine the amount of total revenue that likely would be generated by one-half mill of the tax described in division (B) of section 3318.05 of the Revised Code over the entire twenty-three-year period required under that section and shall deduct from that amount any amount of local donated contribution that the board has committed to apply under division (A)(2) of this section.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in section 3318.06, 3318.061, or 3318.361 of the Revised Code, the rate determined by the commission shall be the rate for which the district board shall seek elector approval under those sections to meet its obligation under division (B) of section 3318.05 of the Revised Code.

If the total amount actually generated over that period from both the tax that was actually levied and any local donated contribution applied under division (A)(2) of this section is less than the amount that would have been raised by a one-half mill tax, the district shall pay any difference. If the total amount actually raised in such manner is greater than the amount that would have been raised by a one-half mill tax the difference shall be zero and no payments shall be made by either the district or the commission.

(C) As used in this section, "local donated contribution" means either of the following:

(A)(1) Any moneys irrevocably donated or granted to a school district board by a source other than the state which the board has the authority to apply to the school district's project under sections 3318.01 to 3318.20 of the Revised Code and which the board has pledged for that purpose by resolution adopted by a majority of its members;

(B)(2) Any irrevocable letter of credit issued on behalf of a school district or any cash a school district has on hand, including any year-end operating fund balances, that can be spent for classroom facilities, either of which the school district board has encumbered for payment of the school district's share of its project under sections 3318.01 to 3318.20 of the Revised Code and either of which has been approved by the Ohio school facilities commission in consultation with the department of education.

(D) No state moneys shall be released for a project to which this section applies until any local donated local contribution authorized under this section is first deposited into the school district's project construction fund, if applied under division (A)(1) of this section, or into the district's capital and maintenance fund if applied under division (A)(2) of this section.

If federal law requires the cardholder's social security number to be displayed on the identification card, the social security number shall be displayed on the card notwithstanding a request to not display the number pursuant to this section. The identification card also shall display the color photograph of the cardholder. If the cardholder has executed a durable power of attorney for health care or a declaration governing the use or continuation, or the withholding or withdrawal, of life-sustaining treatment and has specified that the cardholder wishes the identification card to indicate that the cardholder has executed either type of instrument, the card also shall display any symbol chosen by the registrar to indicate that the cardholder has executed either type of instrument.
