The discussion over whether to cap property taxes continues. Senate Republicans are pushing for it, while the Speaker of the House says it’s not the right time. Check out the Tulsa World’s story and interview with House Speaker Chris Benge, R-Tulsa.
Debate and discussion are always encouraged in the U.S. political system, it’s just curious to me that Senate Republicans are in favor of this measure while the leader of the House has on multiple occasions said he’s not in favor of it.
I guess maybe Repubs are hoping the bill will get a hearing and House members will have a hard time voting against it. The bill limits the increase on property taxes and would require voter approval.
Last year, Sen. Jim Reynolds was more than miffed when his joint resolution passed the Senate but didn’t get heard in the House. He’s filed another resolution, SJR 57 which includes a “Homeowner’s Bill of Rights.”
Let the games begin.
