I move that House Bill 1167 be amended to read as follows:
Page 1, line 17, before "In" insert " Except as provided in
subsection (b)(2) of this section, in" and strike "In".
Page 1, line 17, reset in roman "the ordinance may not be".
Page 2, reset in roman lines 1 through 10.
Page 2, line 11, reset in roman "body. After the public hearing," and delete "must hold a".
Page 2, line 12, delete "public hearing and then".
Page 2, between lines 17 and 18, begin a new paragraph line block indented and insert:
" (2) In the case of the fire district, when considering adding territory within the township having the largest population in the county, the legislative body must hold a public hearing and then may pass the ordinance only if it determines:
(A) that reasonable and adequate fire protection service can be provided within the additional territory by the consolidated city;
(B) that the additional territory include no more than the territory of the township having the largest population in the county; and
(C) that expansion of the district is in the public interest."
Page 2, line 18, strike "(2)" and insert " (3)".
