PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A legislative committee is expected to take up a bill that would allow cities with fewer than 25,000 residents to impose an additional sales tax of up to 1 percent for municipal projects.

The Senate Local Government committee is scheduled to consider the measure Monday. The bill has passed through the state House of Representatives.

The funds could be used for purchasing land, professional fees and construction costs for projects such as utilities, roads or buildings.

The governing board of a municipality would have to approve an ordinance specifying the use of the tax and how long it would be imposed.

The ordinance would be subject to a public vote.
