Late yesterday, the House Property and Local Sales Tax Division unveiled its division report, which contains its plan for Local Government Aid in 2015 and beyond. Despite calls to return program funding to 2002 levels, the House has gone back to last year’s proposal to include an appropriation adjustment every year based on inflation and population growth. For 2015, this would mean an increase of about $14.5 million over 2014 levels. Below is a link to the House Research run for each city.
