DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
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 that if the attorney general does not disapprove an interlocal agreement within 45 days (rather than 60 days under current law) after it is submitted to the attorney general, the agreement is considered approved.
