  (32)  the  county  of  Livingston  is  hereby  further  authorized and
empowered to adopt and  amend  local  laws,  ordinances  or  resolutions
imposing  such  taxes  at  a rate which is one percent additional to the
three percent rate authorized above in this paragraph  for  such  county
for  the  period  beginning  June  first, two thousand three, and ending
