HB2109 Bond ballot language improvements (Mitchell - 2015)

The bill makes transparent to voters that a G.O. bond affects property taxes.
This is an important distinction as there are other types of bonds which are not paid via
secondary property taxes and the voters deserve to have that information made plainly clear.
HB2109 simply adds seven words to the end of these types of bond ballots: “…to be repaid
with secondary property taxes.” This meets the intent of state law, gives clarity to elections
officers, creates transparency for voters, and avoids the potential of a future lawsuit against a
bond election.
