the authority of the county of Orange to impose an additional rate of
sales and compensating use taxes

PURPOSE:

Extends the three-quarters of one percent increase to the sales tax
rate for Orange County.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1. Clause 35 of Subparagraph (i) of the opening paragraph of

authorization to impose an additional three-quarters of one percent
tax until November thirtieth, two thousand fifteen.

Orange County to continue to impose a three-quarters of one percent
increase to the sales tax rate, extending such authorization until
November 30, 2015. Orange County finds it absolutely necessary to
extend this sales tax increase so as to provide the needed revenue to
meet the ever-increasing costs associated with the Assigned Counsel
program, Medicaid and employee pension plans.

New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediate.
