Introduced by Sen. Darwin Booher (R) on September 10, 2015 To revise the law that authorizes municipal recreational authorities, by letting school districts enter an authority. The authorities have the power to levy up to one-mill of property tax for swimming pools, recreation centers, public auditoriums, public conference centers, and parks, with the approval of voters in each municipality covered by the school district. The law does not address whether the local tax-funded recreational facilities can be at a school, but it does require them to be open to the public. Official Text and Analysis.
Referred to the Senate Local Government Committee on September 10, 2015
Reported in the Senate on December 1, 2015 With the recommendation that the substitute (S-1) be adopted and that the bill then pass.
