DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Levy appeals for townships. Reinstates the levy appeal for townships that have been required to borrow for firefighting on an emergency basis in the three previous years. Provides that the maximum amount of the levy increase is the average (rather than the lowest amount) of the amounts borrowed for firefighting on an emergency basis in the three previous years. Specifies that if a township is granted such a levy increase for property taxes due in a particular year, the township may not in the three years following that year borrow funds on an emergency basis to furnish fire protection.
