The Ohio Senate Finance Committee will continue discussions and take a possible vote on House Bill 277 on Tuesday May 24th. This bill, offered by Representative Brenner of Delaware County, would allow counties to draw specific boundaries for 9-1-1 levies that would exclude areas not covered by the county 9-1-1 system. This would keep certain areas from be “double taxed” for 9-1-1 services.
The Senate Finance Committee meets at 2:30pm in the Senate Finance Hearing Room. Proponent testimony will be accepted. The committee is expected to vote it out of committee to the floor of the Senate for consideration. The full Senate may vote as early as Friday.
If you have any questions about this legislation, please contact Ohio APCO Legislative Liaison Jay Somerville.
