Less Government, Lower Taxes and More Freedom – 2014 Legislative Session Day 10

My first meeting of the day was in the Local Government Committee where we’re hearing testimony on four bills. House Bill 1595 grants the powers of initiative and referendum to all counties that are not home rule charter counties, and requires the legislative authorities of such counties to establish petition forms and procedures for circulating petitions; establishes requirements for proposing initiative and referendum measures, verifying petition signatures, and submitting petitions to voters of the county; and authorizes county legislative authorities to submit proposed and enacted ordinances to the voters of the county for approval or rejection.

House Bill 2296 provides that, for purposes of determining the sufficiency of petitions submitted to a city or town, duplicate signatures on the petition, if otherwise valid, must be counted once, rather than stricken.

House Bill 2278 authorizes all fire districts, rather than only fire districts in qualifying rural areas, to enter into contracts with a contiguous city for the furnishing of ambulance services by the city to the district.

House Bill 2297 Expands the definition of "public facilities" as defined in provisions governing the local sales and use tax to include roadway, traffic, and way-finding signage.
