May 12 JFC Agenda Includes Property Tax Issues
The Joint Finance Committee will next be meeting on Thursday, May 12th at 11 AM. That executive session will begin at 11:00 a.m., in the JFC meeting room (412 East, State Capitol).
On the JFC agenda are 28 budget papers, 12 of which are related to the Justice Information System Surcharge. The remaining papers include items related to the Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board, Department of Financial Institutions, Secretary of State, Department of Veterans Affairs, levy limits, and property tax relief. Also being considered are papers related to the Government Accountability Board and the Office of Commissioner of Insurance, which were held over from previous sessions.
From our perspective, the most interesting of these issues are the First Dollar Credit (Paper #606), the levy limit for counties and municipalities (Paper #610), and the repeal of indexing for the Homestead Credit (Paper # 605).
You can see all of next week’s budget papers on the Legislative Fiscal Bureau website.
