Whitt Law Attorney Brittany Flaherty Theis participated in panel presentations at the Illinois Association of School Business Officials’ Regional Conferences in East Peoria and O’Fallon. The presentation was titled “Operating Tax Rate Referenda Options and Related Considerations.”

Ms. Theis joined Dr. Cheryl Crates (a school district administrator with significant referenda-related experience), Mr. Steve Miller (an experienced adviser with significant insight into the financial aspects of a referendum), and Mr. Kyle Harding (an attorney well-versed in referenda and election interference laws). The panel discussed operating tax rate referenda options and described the importance of understanding and communicating the expected impact of any such referenda, along with tips for enhancing those efforts while maintaining compliance with the election interference laws.
