Lodging tax bill limiting city authority does not advance

SSB 5827, which AWC opposed, was not acted on by the Senate before the legislative cutoff on March 8. While the bill is technically dead, discussions continue with the bill proponents regarding their concerns about uses and reporting of lodging tax.

Thanks to all the cities that contacted Senators to express concerns with further limitations on local authority to determine that lodging taxes are used in the best ways to meet community needs. We will keep you informed if any additional information becomes available.
