The House Property and Local Tax Division will hear a wide range of Local Government Aid bills next Monday and Wednesday. This includes the CGMC’s two LGA bills, HF1101 andHF1102, sponsored by Rep. Jeff Brand (DFL-St. Peter) and Rep. Dave Lislegard (DFL-Aurora), respectively. Both bills increase the LGA appropriation by $30.5 million and make updates to the formula multipliers. HF1101 would also peg the LGA appropriation to inflation and population growth so that the appropriation continues to grow over time.
In addition to the CGMC’s LGA proposals, the division will also discuss bills that restore the LGA appropriation to its 2002 level, direct additional LGA to specific cities or make tweaks to parts of the LGA formula such as the sparsity adjustment. You can find the full meeting agenda on the division’s webpage.
The hearing is on Monday, March 11 at 12:45 p.m. in Room 5 of the State Office Building in St. Paul. Any bills that are not heard on Monday will be heard on Wednesday, March at 6:45 p.m. in Room 300 South of the State Office Building.
