Senate Roll Call 333 on2011 Senate Bill 8: Authorize local government consolidated service authorities
View the rest of Senate Bill 8: History, Amendments & Comments
To allow and specify procedures for two or more local governments, and the state, to enter partnership authorities to provide particular services, and give these authorities the power to levy up to 5 mills of property tax with the approval of all voters in the affected area, even if the voters in a particular community voted against the tax. (Potentially this could be a statewide tax if the state were party to one of these agreements.) An authority agreement's terms could supersede both conflicting local ordinances and state statutes. Each member government's unions could bargain over the terms of employment of transferred employees. The decision to enter such a partnership would not be subject to referendum.
