Present law requires 10% or more of the qualified electors in the proposed district to petition the county commissioners for the establishment of a single countywide highway district. This legislation would provide for 10% or more of the qualified electors in the district to petition the county commissioners for dissolution of the single countywide highway district. Other terms and conditions of dissolution of the single countywide highway remain unchanged. FISCAL IMPACT This law will have no direct fiscal impact on state or local governments. Contact Name: Rep.
