Amends the Fire Protection District Act. Provides that a board of trustees of a fire protection district may levy a special tax, by referendum, for the purpose of providing funds to pay for the costs of emergency and rescue crews and equipment at a rate not to exceed 0.10% of the value of all taxable property within the district (rather than to increase the tax rate limit from 0.05% to 0.10%) and changes the wording of the proposition.
