Hearing : (Authors 1st, Co-Author)

HB 1507 Floyd County park district. (Clere)

HB 1457 Clean energy improvement financing district.( Neese, Sullivan)

DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL: Clean energy improvement financing district. Allows the legislative body of a political subdivision (other than a township) to establish a clean energy improvement financing district for the purpose of issuing bonds to fund clean energy improvements for voluntary participants in the program. Provides that the bond proceeds are used to pay all costs associated with the improvements and that assessments are imposed only on participating property owners to repay the bonds. Establishes a 20 year period for bond repayment and for the payment of assessments on each property. Provides that assessments are billed, collected, and enforced in the same manner as property taxes.

HB 1543 Regulation of residential leases.(Speedy Turner)

HB 1252 CEDIT for Perry County jail. (Ellspermann Davisson)

HB 1275 Local transfers between funds. (Saunders)

A similar bill, SB 260, was introduced in the Indiana State Senate and heard in the Senate Utilities and Technology Committee earlier this month. SB 260 was amended to prohibit municipal bonds to finance this proposed program. SB 260 is currently on the Second Reading calendar in the Indiana Senate tomorrow (2/17/2011) and therefore, is available for amendments to be offered on the floor of the Senate. The Senate goes into session 2/17/2011 at 1:30 pm.
