Entry SB2656 / HB1782 - Apr 23, 2018

Status: 

As amended, prohibits a vehicle inspection and maintenance program from being employed in the state unless one is mandated under the Clean Air Act (CAA) or a local government that has an air pollution control program in place on the effective date of the proposed legislation authorizes the continuation of the program by action of the local legislative body. Effectiveness of the proposed legislation occurs 120 days after the date on which the EPA approves a revision of the state implementation plan consistent with the proposed legislation or if a contract for inspection service exists on such date, then on the date of expiration or termination of contract.

Entry SB1075 / HB971 - Apr 23, 2018

Status: 

As amended, changes the current distribution of the local portion (2.25%) of the sales tax levied and collected on online sales by vendors participating in the State’s voluntary online sales tax collections program.  Based on the most recent information available from the Tennessee Department of Revenue, the local portion of voluntary online collections amounted to about $380 million.   After accounting for all the deductions, including 50% for schools and the county trustees’ commission, cities received about $130 million of the $380 million collected.   The amendment will alter the distribution of these voluntary online sales collections to provide counties 75% of the total local share, while cities would receive just 25%.   TML projects that this change will result in the redirection of about $100 million in online sales tax collections from cities to counties.   As this is a permanent change to the distribution, the loss continues into the future.
