SB18-106 - Amended, referred to the Committee of the Whole - Consent Calendar


01:37:17 PM  
Senator Tate explained Senate Bill 18-106 to
the committee and distributed Amendment L.001 [Attachment A].  This
bill repeals the statutory requirement for local governments to receive
voter approval before creating a special sales and use tax fund dedicated
to repaying capital improvement bonds.  It also eliminates the statutory
requirement for cities and counties to receive voter approval to pledge
sales and use tax revenue to repaying bonds.  These provisions are
duplicitive of the voter approval requirements for multi-year debt in the
constitution.
