INDIANA - Legislature Moves Budget Public Notices On Line To Save an Estimated $428,000

Last year, without fanfare, the Indiana state legislature passed H.E.A. 1266 which changed  certain public notice requriements saving the local governments around $428,000

Acording to the bill, local governments previously had to publish their budget and property tax levy two times each in two different newspapers. Under this law, civil taxing units and school corporations instead need to publish their information to the DLGF website beginning this year for 2016 budgets. 

This, of course has not gone unnoticed by local newspapers. The Goshen News editorialized that the "legislature is failing us with public notices"

What could be saved nationwide if all notices were able to be published on line.
