Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Truth in Legislative Taxation Act. Provides that every new Act that creates a new tax or fee or increases an existing tax or fee shall include the words "Tax Increase", "Fee Increase", or "Tax and Fee Increase" in its short title. Requires the sponsor of the new Act to inform the Legislative Reference Bureau that the new Act creates a new tax or fee or increases an existing tax or fee each time a drafting request is made related to that new Act. Requires the sponsor to provide a statement of legislative intent to the Legislative Reference Bureau that describes each new or increased tax or fee in the new Act and that sets forth the reason for each new or increased tax or fee. Directs the Legislative Reference Bureau to: ensure that the short title of the new Act conforms to the naming requirements of this Act; include the statement of legislative intent provided by the sponsor in the Section of the new Act immediately following the short title; and in its synopsis of the bill or amendment, state that the new Act creates a new tax or fee or increases an existing tax or fee. When the new Act is drafted in the form of a bill, directs the Legislative Reference Bureau to affix to the first page of the bill a stamp or words indicating that the new Act is one to which this Act applies. Provides corresponding requirements for amendatory Acts. Effective immediately.
