Current Bill Summary

SB 926 - Under current law, political subdivisions may cooperate with other political subdivisions, federal or state agencies, other states and their political subdivisions, and private entities for the construction, acquisition, or operation of a facility or for a common service.

"Political subdivision" is defined for purposes of the provisions allowing cooperation to include, among other entities, libraries, road, drainage, sewer, levee, and fire districts, soil and water conservation districts, and art museum boards.

This act adds sheltered workshop boards to the definition of "political subdivision".

This act is identical to SB 506 (2015) and is substantially similar to a provision of the truly agreed to and finally passed CCS/HCS/SS/SB 732 (2016), SB 871 (2016), HB 1421 (2016), HCS/SB 869 (2016), HB 751 (2015), and a provision of HCS/SB 364 (2015).
