2010 Senate Bill 1238: Authorize new transit-related spending, tax breaks and subsidies (Senate Roll Call 438)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 36 to 0 in the Senate on September 22, 2010, to give local "tax increment financing authorities" the power to borrow and spend on infrastructure projects and subsidies that promote the use of mass transit and are within a half mile of a transit station. The debt is paid by "capturing" a portion of increased property taxes that would otherwise be available to local governments to pay for their own operations (or for tax cuts). The bill is part of a package comprised of Senate Bills 1233 to 1237.
