House Bill 1113 is 139 pages long. It covers lots of local government tax issues. It’s not controversial. It passed the House, with 95 members voting yes, and none voting no. The bill has moved on to the Senate.

It’s a name change 18 years in the making. Or maybe 48 years in the making. Here’s the story.
