BREAKING: State Legislature property tax bill cuts newspaper notice

UPDATE: We received word Sunday afternoon that the amendment in SB 2 will not cut all tax-related notice requirements from newspapers, just the final adopted tax rate notice. Also, House and Senate actually voted on the final conference committee version of the bill, not an amendment. That final conference committee version - filed quietly late Friday afternoon - included the change in notice requirements for adopted tax rates. On Saturday, both the House and Senate voted to adopt a resolution that allowed consideration of the final version. The resolution explained the change as "necessary to remove the requirement that the designated officer or employee of a taxing unit publish certain tax information in a newspaper." Immediately after adopting the final version, each chamber conducted a straight up-or-down vote on final passage with no further amendments. Both chambers passed the bill, voting overwhelmingly along party lines.
