Interlocal cooperation agreements. Provides that the law regarding interlocal cooperation may be cited as the interlocal and intergovernmental cooperation and efficiency act. Provides that unless otherwise prohibited by law, interlocal cooperation agreements may be entered into for any lawful purpose, including: (1) to implement the modernization, reform, consolidation, reorganization, and efficiency recommendations included in the 2007 report of the Indiana commission on local government reform; and (2) to share or coordinate responsibilities, costs, and resources to more efficiently carry out governmental functions. Provides, in the case of an interlocal cooperation agreement that must be approved by the attorney general, that the agreement is considered approved if the attorney general does not approve the agreement within 45 days (instead of 60 days).
