STATEHOUSE (March 4, 2016) — State Sen. Pete Miller’s (R-Brownsburg) bill making it easier for local governments to set their budget has passed the House of Representatives and Senate. 

Senate Enrolled Act 321 would help local government officials set their budget earlier and more accurately by requiring the Department of Local Government Finance to certify the budget, tax rates and tax levies earlier in the budgeting process.  

“This bill would allow towns and cities across Indiana to build their budgets more efficiently because they would be more aware of projected revenues,” Miller said. “By knowing this information, local officials would know how much money they have as soon as they begin their budgeting process, just like Hoosier families do.” 

SEA 321 will now move to Gov. Pence’s desk for final approval.
