Bill Targets Hospital District Taxes

Oct 26, 2015

A Senate Republican last week proposed a measure that would require hospital taxing districts to get voter approval every 10 years to continue levying property taxes.

The bill (SB 614), filed by Sen. Travis Hutson, R-Elkton, will be considered during the 2016 legislative session and comes amid an effort by Gov. Rick Scott to scrutinize hospital funding.
