The threat of capping local governments drew in officals representing cities, cointies, parks and schools to testify in opposition to HB 1361.
This petition would require signatures equal to 10% of the votes cast in that jurisdiction at the last general election, and if approved, the property taxes for that jurisdiction would be capped for one year.
Additionally, counties will be required to report additional information to the tax department from which they will prepare a jurisdiction-level report on annual tax increases.
This bill - HB1361 - may be on the Senate floor as early as Tuesday.
Feel free to contact your Senators to tell them how this would negatively impact your county.
