LB445, sponsored by Sen. Mike McDonnell of Omaha, requires cities to produce an annual report detailing:
• the purpose of the occupation tax;
• any special project designation;
• the amount of tax dollars collected;
• how the money was spent or is budgeted to be spent; and
• the scheduled or projected end date of the tax.

The mandated report will be made available for public inspection on a municipality’s website or other location no later than 90 days after the end of the municipality’s fiscal year.

LB445 passed on a 42-0 vote.
