The Senate Governmental Affairs Committee gave a favorable report Thursday to a bill clarifying the tax exemption for water districts.
Existing law does not specifically state the tax exemption applies to sales and use tax. HB 179, sponsored by Rep. Isaac Whorton, R-Valley, makes it clear the exemption applies to all taxes and fees.
The legislation previously passed the House and now awaits a final vote in the full Senate.
