LWVNE Opposes LR 22CA
The League opposes LR 22CA (Linehan), a Constitutional amendment to limit the total amount of property tax revenue that may be raised by political subdivisions.
LR 22CA would limit the total amount of property tax revenue that may be raised by political subdivisions, capping collections at 3%. LWVNE believes that the state’s primary responsibility is to provide adequate funding, in priority order, for all levels of education, human services programs, aid to local governments, government services, and economic development. The League does not support the imposition of fixed percentage “lids” on state expenditures as a proper method of budget reduction or the use of deficit spending in times of inadequate revenue. We support a comprehensive, fair, and long-term plan to provide equitable revenue sources for state budget obligations.
