AWC priority property tax bill gets hearing

On Friday, February 10, the House Finance Committee will hear the bi-partisan proposal to lift the one percent cap on annual property tax increases, HB 1764. A coalition of counties, cities, labor organizations, fire fighters, law enforcement, public health, and human services is seeking a new annual limit tied to inflation and population growth.

The coalition is coordinating a panel of speakers for the hearing. If you would like to express support for the proposal, please contact members of the House Finance Committee.

For more information about the need for a new property tax limit, please see AWC’s Property Tax Issue Brief.
