Description: 

Local governments need revenues. However, the way in which those revenues are raised matters. If taxes or fees are seen as unfair or are levied on a weak part of the local economy, then those revenues - and the local government - will not be healthy for the long-run. In this session, you will hear from two California local governments and national experts who have worked extensively on reforming local government revenue systems to both provide adequate revenues for city services and remaining viable over time.
