The Urban Caucus met Wednesday morning and debated new and revised policy statements regarding several issues of concern facing large urban counties.  The issues were so numerous that the caucus put forth a list of priorities that were later more fully vetted in the relevant policy committee.  The Urban priority list for 2015 is as follows:

*Tax Reform (CST, Commercial Leases, Recapture Provision, Revenue Flexibility)

* Economic Development (Enterprise Zones, Film & Tax Incentives)

* Homelessness

* DJJ County Cost Share

* Article V Court Funding

* Amendment 1 Implementation

* Beach Renourishment

* Septic Tanks
