Issue 13 - April 5, 2013

Legislative Overview

Today marks the 82nd day of the First Regular Session of the 51st Legislature. There were no committee hearings to consider bills and relatively light floor work. The focus of the Legislature remains the budget and the governor's Medicaid proposal. Legislative leadership for the majority is rumored to be engaging their caucus members in small groups to update them on the budget negotiations, which at this point have seemingly not produced a public budget proposal.

Changes to Transaction Privilege Taxes (TPT)

Although there has been no legislative activity this week on HB 2111 (investments; public monies), discussions have continued and positive progress is being made. League and municipal staff, including auditors and others have been working to find points of agreement. If and when language is drafted that represents an agreement between municipalities and proponents of the measure, the League will distribute the finalized language.
