1An Act to amend
251.11 (1) and 251.115 of the statutes; relating to: multiple
2jurisdiction health departments.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill eliminates the requirement that a governing body for a multiple
jurisdiction health department use either equalized valuation or a per capita
determination to prepare a budget of proposed expenditures for the ensuing fiscal
year. This bill instead requires a governing body for a multiple jurisdiction health
department to determine a budget in a manner agreed upon by the governing bodies
of the participating entities.
For further information see the local fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
