Bill to change voter approval rates for fire benefit charges

Last year, the Legislature reduced the voter approval threshold for emergency services levies from 60% to a majority approval. HB 1486 does the same thing for fire benefit charges by changing the voter approval threshold from 60% to a simple majority.

AWC supports this legislation. Currently the bill is scheduled to be voted upon by the House Finance Committee at 8am on February 28.
