Fiscal flexibility bills move out of committee

Two bills providing additional flexibility on local revenues moved out of committee after hearings last week.

HB 2041 would remove the non-supplant language on property tax levy lid lifts. It would also extend the $0.50 voter-approved local option county criminal justice levy to all counties by eliminating the language limiting it to counties with less than 90,000 population.

HB 2006 would remove the non-supplant language from city and county criminal justice assistance account distributions and the mental health sales tax. Currently, every city receives a portion of more than $35 million per biennium in criminal justice assistance, and one city levies the mental health sales tax.
