H2145: TPT; SERVICES; TUITION SURCHARGE Questions/Comments

Establishes the services classification of transaction privilege taxes and levies a tax of one percent of the tax base on a list of businesses that are not otherwise classified for transaction privilege taxation, including legal and engineering services, real estate services, personal care services, various health and medical services, social services, death care services, management and business support services, repair services, and more. Of the monies collected from the services classification each month, 25 percent must be transferred to the Classroom Site Fund for teacher compensation increases, 25 percent must be transferred to the Financial Aid Trust Fund for financial aid to resident students at state universities, 25 percent must be transferred to the Public Safety Personnel Retirement Fund to pay unfunded accrued liability, and 25 percent must be transferred to the newly established Arizona Higher Education Financial Aid Program Fund. The Commission for Postsecondary Education is required to establish the Arizona Higher Education Financial Aid Program and to develop application and approval criteria for persons to apply to participate in the Program. The Arizona Board of Regents is required to assess a surcharge of $300 each year on tuition paid by each nonresident student, and to deposit the monies in the Program Fund. Establishes criteria for a person to qualify for financial aid from the Program Fund. The Commission is required to distribute monies from the Fund beginning in 2023 to cover the full amount of each qualifying student's tuition and fees at the university or community college where the student is enrolled. The Program terminates on July 1, 2028. Due to a potential increase in state revenue, this legislation requires the affirmative vote of at least 2/3 of the members of each house of the Legislature for passage, and becomes effective on signature of the Governor.

H2154: PERSONAL INFORMATION; DATA SECURITY BREACHES Questions/Comments

Numerous changes to statutes relating to data security breaches. Adds a new article to Title 18 (Information Technology) regulating data security breaches, and transfers several sections of current statute to the new article. If a person that conducts business in Arizona and that owns, maintains or licenses unencrypted and unredacted computerized personal information becomes aware of a "security system breach" (defined), the person is required to notify the individuals affected within 45 days. If the breach requires notification of more than 1,000 individuals, the person is also required to notify the three largest nationwide consumer reporting agencies and to notify the Attorney General in writing. Establishes a list of information that must be included in the notification to individuals affected by a breach. If a breach involves login credentials for an online account, a person may comply with these requirements by providing the notification that directs the individual to promptly change a password and security question or answer, as applicable, or to take other appropriate steps to protect the online account. A knowing and willful violation of these requirements is an unlawful practice and only the Attorney General may enforce the violation by investigation and taking appropriate action. The Attorney General is authorized to impose a civil penalty for violations of the lesser of $10,000 per affected individual or the total amount of economic loss sustained by affected individuals, and the maximum civil penalty from a breach or series of related breaches cannot exceed $500,000.

S1390: TPT; ADDITIONAL RATE; EDUCATION Questions/Comments

Beginning July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2041, an additional transaction privilege tax (TPT) rate increment is levied at the rate of 0.6 percent of the tax base of the list of business classifications. The Department of Revenue is required to separately account for the revenue collected for this rate, and the State Treasurer is required to distribute the revenues for various public education purposes according to a specified formula, including $64.1 million annually to the Classroom Site Fund and $86.3 million annually to the Department of Education for increased basic state aid due to added school days and associated teacher salary increases. The additional TPT rate is not considered local revenues for the purpose of school expenditure limitations. Due to a potential increase in state revenue, this legislation requires the affirmative vote of at least 2/3 of the members of each house of the Legislature for passage, and becomes effective on signature of the Governor. [Capitol Reports Note: This legislation effectively continues the additional TPT rate for education approved by the voters as Proposition 301 in November 2000, which will expire June 30, 2021, for an additional 20 years, with some modifications to the distribution formula.] AS SIGNED BY GOVERNOR. In his signing message, the Governor expressed his belief that this legislation is a step in the right direction and his commitment to increasing funding for public schools every year.
