SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) - A tea party group has ended a petition drive to dissolve a library board that has approved a series of tax increases in recent years.
Barb Sanders, a leader of the anti-tax group in Pulaski County, said in a statement that the petition drive may be unnecessary now that lawmakers are drafting legislation to hold special taxing districts accountable.
House Speaker Greg Stumbo said Thursday that the measure will be a top priority in a legislative session set to begin in January.
Sanders faced intense criticism for questioning the tax hikes instituted by members of a library board that isn't accountable to taxpayers.
Critics had warned that the local library might have had to shut down temporarily if Sanders' petition drive to disband the library board had been successful.
