DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Local government reorganizations. Requires (rather than allows) the use of a "rejection threshold" in the case of a proposed local government reorganization involving a county and a municipality. (Under current law, the use of a rejection threshold that must be satisfied by both the voters of the municipality and by the county voters outside the municipality is optional.) Specifies that in such a proposed reorganization, the rejection threshold (the percentage of the vote needed to reject the proposed reorganization) may not exceed 50% of the vote in the municipality or 50% of the vote in the area of the county outside the municipality.
