View Amendment Current Amendment: 7 to Bill 201

Senator FANNING proposed the following amendment (WAB\201C022.RT.WAB21):

Amend the bill, as and if amended, SECTION 1, by striking Section 59-18-1640(G) and inserting:

/ (G)Notwithstanding another provision of law, a district in a state-of-education emergency pursuant to this section must have its fiscal authority relating to taxing authority and levying millage transferred to its county council until the state-of-education emergency is lifted, except as provided in this subsection. The county council may not exceed millage limitations established pursuant to Section 6-1-320 or otherwise established prior to the state-of-education emergency declaration. However, when a district achieves the highest possible rating on its report card for three consecutive years the district shall regain and exercise full fiscal autonomy for the district, and fiscal authority delegated to the county council is divested of the council and returned to the district." /
