BILL SUMMARY for SB16-177



SENATE COMMITTEE ON LOCAL GOVERNMENT


Votes: View--> Action Taken:
Refer Senate Bill 16-177 to the Committee of the W PASS







02:12 PM -- SB 16-177



Senators Martinez Humenik and Senator Heath, co-prime sponsors, discussed the provisions of Senate Bill 16-177 concerning modification to 2015 urban renewable legislation. The bill makes technical adjustments and clarifies recent legislation concerning urban renewal, urban renewal plans, and provisions for sharing tax increment financing (TIF) among affected taxing entities. Generally, this bill: replaces existing language with some common terms for describing municipal urban renewal boards and the various taxing entities affected by TIF; specifies conditions for using mediation to address disputes between municipal urban renewal boards and other taxing entities; and clarifies that recent legislation is not intended to jeopardize the existing financial obligations of an urban renewal board that remain outstanding as of December 2015.
