Common Level of Appraisal (CLA) Study Committee

Act 132 of 2016 established a CLA Study Committee  to study the use of an aggregate common level of appraisal in a merged school district to determine the statewide education tax for each municipality in that district. Here is the legislative intent:

“On or before December 15, 2016, the Committee shall submit a written report to the House Committees on Ways and Means and on Education and the Senate Committees on Finance and on Education with its findings and any recommendations for legislative action.”

The final report, as submitted to the legislative committees, is now available. We have compiled a list of information which includes past meetings, agendas, and findings. If you need additional information, please contact us directly.
