SB 179

Truth in Taxation Amendments

This bill adds additional protections to Utah’s Truth in Taxation law, by requiring that any proposed increases in the tax rate must be discussed at a public meeting held specifically for the purpose of discussing and taking action on the increase, as well as preventing the governmental entity from restricting the number of individuals who want to provide public comment on the proposed increase. Additionally, the public meeting will not be allowed to be held on the same day as another public meeting by the same governmental body. This bill will increase access to these meetings as well as increase government accountability to the public.
