Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This bill would allow a city to seek a 1% sales tax for water and sewer purposes, if that city's system connects to the system of a city already imposing the tax. As written, this would apply to several cities in Fulton County. The MOST is the only setting where a sales tax is levied in less than an entire county, and such taxes may impact voter support of future county-wide sales taxes. The bill would also authorize the Governor, the Speaker of the House, and the Lieutenant Governor to order an audit of any city levying this tax.
