State Legislative issues were the topic of discussion and several concerns were brought to Senator Myers attention.  Pat Schieber, County Treasurer presented those in attendance with a handout of legislation concerns she would like to be considered.  Ms. Schieber said she would like the legislators to “fix the wording” on HB 1183 to include the exemption granted for the additional homestead, then the schools and the counties would be reimbursed for this mandated exemption.  Judy Barnes, County Assessor asked that HB 1715 Oil and Gas Properties be reviewed.  Ms. Barnes also said that she would like to see changes made in non-funded mandates such as disabled veterans and senior property freezes.  Several other legislative issues were discussed and Senator Myers was given a handout with 17 items to be reviewed for the 2006 Legislative Session.  Senator Myers said we will continue to struggle due to the rising cost of diesel and energy cost, it will continue to add stress to everyone’s budget.  Myers also said he will be working on a bill to get additional money for roads and bridges.
