A. The legislature finds and determines that for the purposes of increasing voter knowledge and government transparency it is a matter of statewide concern that all municipalities fully inform voters of the effects of any vote to approve a bond, sales tax or property tax measure and, therefore, the legislature finds and declares that the publicity pamphlet format for these measures is of statewide concern. This section preempts all local laws, ordinances and charter provisions to the contrary.
