No reprieve for levy bill

House Bill 1239’s transformation today wasn’t what Senators had in mind.

 

A conference committee was requested this morning in the House to review the bill, which underwent a change in the Senate to appropriate funds to the Board of Regents to cover the increase to employee health insurance costs.

 

Conference committee members elected to return the bill back to its original form – an act authorize school districts to set a tax levy at 30 cents per thousand dollars of taxable valuation for pension and health insurance funding purposes.

 

The Senate, however, voted to defeat the bill and not reassign a conference committee.
