2011 House Bill 4800

Remove Wayne County school tax hike vote restriction

Introduced in the House

June 22, 2011

Introduced by Rep. John Walsh (R-19)

To repeal a provision that requires the Wayne County Intermediate School District (called the “Wayne Regional Education Service Agency”) to hold a regional property tax millage increase only on the same day as statewide primary or general elections. Instead, the Wayne RESA could seek a property tax of up to three mills at the “next regular school election” of the constituent districts, or in some cases, it could schedule a special election. These provisions are what currently apply to other ISDs.
