Daniels To Deliver State of the State Tonight

January 15, 2008

Tonight Governor Mitch Daniels will deliver his fourth State of the State Address.  The governor says his speech will be brief and to the point, emphasizing his property tax plan now under consideration by the Indiana General Assembly.  Many lawmakers see the speech as Daniels’ chance to sell his version of property tax relief.  Among them is Senate Appropriations Committee Chair Bob Meeks from LaGrange. 

Daniels’ plan includes eliminating township assessors in favor of a single, appointed assessor in each county.  It also proposed property tax caps and a sales tax increase to offset property tax cuts.  The governor will also give testimony on his plan before the House Ways and Means Committeee Wednesday.
