Property tax bill not addressed in budget negotiations

While the Legislature changed the state property taxes as part of the funding sources for the McCleary “fix” for schools, we were disappointed that the budget proposal did not include a new local option to allow cities or counties to increase property taxes greater than one percent, or any other new “cap.”

AWC priority bill HB 1764, would have changed the annual property tax limit from one percent to a limit linked to inflation and population growth.
