The Legislature shall take into consideration the estimated tax delinquency for the current year, and shall be conservative in its estimate of revenue to assure ample funds for the state's contribution to the cost of the minimum school program. The commission shall immediately transmit to the county auditor of each county and to the state auditor a statement of the rate. The county auditor shall, upon receipt, give the commission written acknowledgment of receipt.
