Many bills targeting the equalization of city/town and county taxes through specific excise taxes adopted locally have been proposed but most measures have been or are expected to be defeated; namely SB 155 (Favola), HB 1198 (Kory), HB 85 (Campbell), HB 419 (Bagby), HB 627 (Krizek), HB 830 (Hope) and HB 1192 (Murphy).

VACo has a long tenured commitment to support equal taxation between counties and cities/towns. To that extent, VACo supported these bills and has written the Chairman of Senate Finance to request the Committee study the measure and make recommendations prior to the 2017 General Assembly session.
