Overview: HB 2315 punishes a local government for failure to comply with posting requirements of comprehensive revenues and expenditures.

League Position: OPPOSE - The League is opposed to this bill as it attempts to unnecessarily codify an enforcement provision.

Summary: HB 2315 states that if a local government fails to comply with the requirement to establish and maintain an official internet website that is available to the public and that contains a comprehensive reporting of all revenues and expenditures over $5,000 of local monies, one percent of the shared revenues of the city or town that is not in compliance with the statute will be held until they come into compliance.
