Current Bill Summary


SB 574 - This act allows Lincoln County, after meeting the required assessed valuation, to become a second class county upon a vote of the governing body to change classifications. Currently, a county can only change classifications by a vote of the governing body if it is becoming a first class county; otherwise, the county must be at the required assessed valuation for five years before changing classifications. The effective date of the change in classification shall be at the beginning of the county fiscal year following the election by the governing body.

This act is similar to SB 38 (2009) and is identical to SCS/HB 257 (2009) and certain provisions of SS/SCS/HB 376 (2009) and HCS/SB 386 (2009).
