With the 2023 Legislative Session largely in the rearview mirror, counties across the state will enter 2024 in a stronger position. 2023 has been a good year for counties. Not only will county property taxpayers see real property tax relief, but counties will also receive funding enhancement for transportation and public defense services. Additionally, the next year will mark a historical shift in how indigent public defense services are provided across the state.
Below is a list of IAC’s major accomplishments this past session:
IAC’s success this year is due in large part to the efforts of our membership who took the time to reach out to their legislators and advocate for policies that benefit county government and county taxpayers. I want to thank IAC’s Legislative Committee as well as our members that traveled to Boise throughout the session to meet with legislators, testify before legislative committees, and shepherd IAC and affiliate priorities through the legislative process. We could not do the work of the association without you!
IAC will be touring the state in May as part of our County Officials Institute (COI) to provide a full report to the membership on the 2023 Legislative Session as well as provide county budget training. Please take a moment to review the agenda and sign up to attend. It is an absolute must-attend meeting to stay up to date on recent law changes and to gain a deeper understanding of the county budget process.
