GENERAL ASSEMBLY ACTIVITIES

House Floor Action

Yesterday afternoon, the House took up HB 1009, school financial management, on third reading.  Representative Tony Cook, author of the bill, presented the bill.  He spoke of flexibility, transparency, and the increase in the maximum levy for the new Operation Fund.  He stated that the bill was not effective until July 1, 2018.  Representative Vern Smith, a House Democrat, described HB 1009 as a “good bill” with still some concerns, but it should pass.  The final vote was 92-3.  The bill now goes to the Senate where Senator Luke Kenley will be the sponsor of the bill.  At this time, there is no indication how the Senate will deal with HB 1009.

House Ways & Means Committee

Yesterday morning, the committee heard HB 1043, referendum process and remonstrance process, to amend and vote the bill to the House floor.  Representative Tim Brown brought an amendment that the language in HB 1038 regarding moving the operating referendum from seven years to eight years would be added to HB 1043.  The amendment was approved by consent.  Representative Ed Clere presented an amendment which creates a standard for determining whether a political subdivision has artificially divided a capital project into multiple capital projects.  The amendment was approved by consent.  A second amendment by Rep. Clere adds new language to the construction referendum question.  It adds language to describe the expected annual property tax increase and if a school corporation is scheduled to pay off debt within the next five years.  Again, this amendment was approved by consent.  The amended bill passed the committee by a vote of 22-0.

Senate Floor Action

The Senate passed SB 567, Gary schools and the DUAB, yesterday by a vote of 49-0.  This is the bill that will designate the Gary Community Schools as a distressed political subdivision and allow the Distressed Unit Appeals Board to appoint an Emergency Manager to take over all financial procedures for the corporation.  Representative Tim Brown will be the bill’s sponsor in the House.
