UPDATE: Good News this has passed the Senate and as moved to the House, it has not yet been assigned a committee.
We have what we think is a fairly good bill to report to you. SB 5 by Senator Alvarado (R) would set forth a local mandate that would require special purpose government entities to seek local approval before they increase local taxes and fees to pay for whatever the entity was created for to provide to the public. We think this is a positive step in the right direction in tamping down on unchecked local entities increasing our tax bill and being accountable to no one.
If you want to call in and support this bill call the legislative hotline at 502-564-8100 or 1-800-372-7181 and leave a message for your Representative, All House Leadership, to support SB 5
