House Passes Daniels’ Property Tax Plan

January 24, 2008

Indiana’s House of Representatives today voted ninety-three to one in favor of a property tax plan put forth by Governor Mitch Daniels.  Tuesday lawmakers made a number of changes to that plan, however, including removing voter referendum for most school construction projects and added tax breaks for the elderly, renters, and low income workers.  Democrat David Orentlicher of Indianapolis.

The one vote against the bill came from Representative Craig Fry of Mishawaka.  He says he wasn’t comfortable supporting a bill he didn’t receive until this morning.  Fry added he did not think it provided enough property tax cuts for his district.  The bill will now be considered by the Senate.
