HJR 22 -- Soils, Water, and Parks Sales Tax

Co-Sponsors: Green and Kauffman

The 1/10-cent soils, water, and parks sales tax will expire on November 8, 1998. This proposed constitutional amendment extends the tax to November 6, 2011, and increases the tax rate to 2/10 cent. Tax revenue is divided equally among: (1) the Department of Natural Resources Soil Conservation Program; (2) the Division of State Parks; (3) counties and municipalities for local park capital improvements; and (4) counties and municipalities for storm water control.

Funds for storm water control will be distributed to counties and municipalities as prescribed by statute. Funds for local parks will be allocated to counties on a per-capita basis. Within counties, local park funding will be divided among municipalities and the county based on population density in incorporated and unincorporated areas. In first class counties, however, the county must receive at least 25% of the funding.
