    8         163.387 Redevelopment trust fund.—
    9         (2)(a) Except for the purpose of funding the trust fund
   10  pursuant to subsection (3), upon the adoption of an ordinance
   11  providing for funding of the redevelopment trust fund as
   12  provided in this section, each taxing authority shall, by
   13  January 1 of each year, appropriate to the trust fund for so
   14  long as any indebtedness pledging increment revenues to the
   15  payment thereof is outstanding (but not to exceed 30 years) a
   16  sum that is no less than the increment as defined and determined
   17  in subsection (1) or paragraph (3)(b) accruing to such taxing
   18  authority. If the community redevelopment plan is amended or
   19  modified pursuant to s. 163.361(1), each such taxing authority

   23  was initially approved or adopted. However, for any agency
   24  created on or after July 1, 2002, each taxing authority shall
   25  make the annual appropriation for a period not to exceed 40
   26  years after the fiscal year in which the initial community
   27  redevelopment plan is approved or adopted.

   35  However, revenues or aid that may be dispensed or appropriated
   36  to a district as defined in s. 388.011 at the discretion of an
   37  entity other than such district shall not be deemed available.
   38         3. A library district, except a library district in a
