Library tax, insurance, and accounting procedures. Specifies that a public library may provide group insurance for its employees and retired employees. Changes the time within which a public library must file a financial report with the state examiner of the state board of accounts from 30 days after the end of each fiscal year to 60 days after the end of each calendar year. Changes the date of a county board of tax adjustment's first annual meeting from September 18 to September 22. Establishes a new procedure for the appointment of members to a library board in a library district that: (1) is located in a county having a population of more than 45,000 but less than 47,000; and (2) contains all or part of the territory of each school corporation in the county. Provides that under the new procedure each of the following may appoint one member to the library board: (1) The executive of the county in which the library district is located. (2) The fiscal body of the county in which the library district is located. (3) The legislative body of the most populous city in the library district. (4) The school board of each school corporation having territory in the library district. Requires a person who is appointed under the new procedure to report annually before March 1 to the member's appointing authority concerning the work of the library board and the finances of the library, including the rate of taxation, during the previous calendar year. Allows a member appointed before the new procedure takes effect to continue to serve on the library board until the normal expiration of the member's term and provides procedures for filling the vacancy created by the expiration of the member's term. Provides that the last preceding annual appropriation and tax levy are renewed for a public library if the library board fails to: (1) give a first notice of its proposed budget and tax levy for the ensuing year at least ten days before the public hearing on those matters and a second notice at least three days before the hearing; or (2) finally adopt the budget and tax levy not later than September 20. Requires the treasurer of the library board to report to the county auditor not later than September 20 if the annual appropriation and tax levy are continued. (Current law provides that the last annual appropriation and tax levy are renewed if the board fails to: (1) give notice of its proposed budget and tax levy at least 21 days before the second Monday in September; or (2) finally adopt the budget and tax levy at least two days before the second Monday in September.)
