Rep McCreadys sinking fund legislation signed into law

first_img11Nov Rep. McCready’s sinking fund legislation signed into law State Rep. Mike McCready’s bill allowing school districts to seek sinking fund levies for important security and technology upgrades was signed into law Wednesday by Gov. Rick Snyder.“It’s important that we ensure our students have a safe learning environment, and that they have access to modern technology so they’re acquiring the skills they need to succeed in the future,” said Rep. McCready, R-Bloomfield Hills. “This legislation gives our local schools the flexibility to fund technology and security upgrades in a fiscally responsible way.”Under current law, voters can approve a sinking fund levy of up to 5 mills for a maximum of 20 years, but schools are limited to using the revenue for real estate purchases, construction costs and building repairs. House Bill 4388, now Public Act 319 of 2016, grants school districts the option to seek sinking fund levies for security upgrades and technology purchases. It also limits future sinking fund requests to 3 mills for a maximum of 10 years.### Categories: McCready Newslast_img read more
