EMS levy approval

Last week, we told you about HB 2428, changing the requirement that a county get approval from each city with a population greater than 50,000 before placing a countywide EMS levy on the ballot. This week the House Finance Committee passed a substitute version of the bill, which removed this change in the approval process while continuing to clarify that only a majority of voters need to reauthorize an uninterrupted continuation of a current EMS levy at a lower rate. The bill is expected to be considered on the House floor before next Tuesday’s deadline.
