Local Tax Referenda (Watch)

CS/CS/SB 272 (Brandes) and CS/CS/HB 317 (Ingoglia) amend when a local government may put a local discretionary surtax ballot initiative before the voters. The bills were amended to require a referendum to adopt or amend a local discretionary surtax be held at a general election, and would require a simple majority of voter approval for passage. (Hughes)
