2014 House Bill 5666: Repeal county promotions tax, except for Washtenaw
  1. Introduced by Rep. Rick Outman (R) on June 11, 2014, to repeal a law that allows counties to impose a 0.5 mill property tax for trade expositions, tourism promotion or to advertise the county’s “agricultural advantages,” except for Washtenaw County, which appears to be the only county that currently imposes this tax.
    • Referred to the House Agriculture Committee on June 11, 2014.
      • Reported in the House on June 12, 2014, with the recommendation that the substitute (H-1) be adopted and that the bill then pass.
