Cities show support for maintaining lodging tax uses

On Thursday, the Senate Trade & Economic Development Committee heard SB 5262, which would maintain the current uses of local lodging tax revenue. We’d like to thank the numerous city officials who attended the hearing to express their support.

As we near the first legislative cut-off, this version of the bill must pass out of committee by February 22. Its House companion, HB 1253, has an extra week since it is being considered by a finance committee.

We’ll provide an update next week, but please remind your Senator and Representatives how important maintaining the current uses of lodging tax revenue is to your city.
