Discussion Topic/Presentation

Discussion of the resubmittal of SB384Tim Haithcoat

This is our opportunity for input in this legislation. Want to make sure that the surveyors, assessors, mappers, and GIS professionals are on the same page. There was concern about cadastral mapping being tied to surveying, and also the language of the cadastral mapping with respect to grandfathering. Also questions about who is leading the rules effort; the State Tax Commission should be involved. Don M: there was also language being promoted by national groups. Tim H: the model law also has model rules that need to be brought into the discussion.
