2015 House Bill 4166

House Roll Call 141: Passed

To revise 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.” The law was passed before the 1978 Headlee amendment required voter approval of local millages, and the bill would change the law to require this, with a renewal vote required every five years going forward.
