I don’t think we can trust the left leaning legislature to protect us against sky-high property tax bills after the elimination of the Gallagher amendment protections. SB23-303 created a ballot issue for November that looks like a shell game of temporary reductions to make us think we’re getting money back. Will we accept the plan to “retain and spend excess state revenues that will be used to backfill some of the reduced property tax revenue”? We either take what crumbs they offer us, or we get no relief at all. The Republicans walked out of the deliberations and ended up with no input. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a Center Party to bridge the divide with a more balanced view?
