Franks objects to this.  His legislation would require the municipality that wants to impose the tax to hold a vote before they impose the tax, rather than putting the burden of collecting signatures on those who oppose the tax.  According to Frank, SB 1555  "would require the people who are trying to raise taxes on the citizens to prove that 51 percent of the people want their taxes raised."<ref name=franks/>

Committee membership

Special Service Areas

In 2009, Franks is a co-sponsor of Senate Bill 1555. SB 1555 would alter the way that taxes are imposed in Special Service Areas throughout the state.[2]

Current state law allows municipalities to create special service areas, or SSAs. SSAs can generate funding to build infrastructure projects that are intended to benefit a geographical area that is less than borders of a municipality. This can include sewer projects, street repairs and so on.

Property owners located within an SSAs pay more on their property taxes for a set period (usually 20 years) until bonds issued to pay for the project are repaid. Residents can stop a town or county from imposing an SSA by collecting signatures on a petition from 51% of the area's property owners of record and 51% of the registered voters within the SSA.

Franks objects to this. His legislation would require the municipality that wants to impose the tax to hold a vote before they impose the tax, rather than putting the burden of collecting signatures on those who oppose the tax. According to Frank, SB 1555 "would require the people who are trying to raise taxes on the citizens to prove that 51 percent of the people want their taxes raised."[2]
