IN Governor Says Property Tax Caps Belong in Constitution


Gov. Mitch Daniels told a couple hundred people packed into the Statehouse Rotunda for a rally that lawmakers should support amending property tax limits into the Indiana Constitution.

The Republican governor told the cheering crowd that property tax caps belong in the constitution so that judges or lawmakers can't overrule or repeal the limits currently in state law.

The GOP-controlled Senate approved a measure that would put the question of constitutional property tax caps before voters. But the Democratic-led House has been cool to passing the proposal this year.

If the measure clears both chambers either this year or next, voters would decide the issue in the November 2010 election.
