   See. 133.06. (A) A school district shall not incur, without a vote of the electors, net
indebtedness that exceeds an amount equal to one-tenth of one per cent of its tax valuation,
except as provided in divisions (G) and (H) of this section and in division (D) of section

   (B) Except as provided in divisions (E), (F), and (I) of this section, a school district shall not
incur net indebtedness that exceeds an amount equal to nine per cent of its tax valuation.

securities in an amount that will make the district's net indebtedness after the issuance of the
securities exceed an amount equal to four per cent of its tax valuation, unless the superintendent
of public instruction, acting under policies adopted by the state board of education, and the tax

next special election may be held under section 3501.01 of the Revised Code without submitting
a new request for consent. If the school district seeks to submit the same question at any other
subsequent election, the district shall first submit a new request for consent in accordance with
