Better idea: Get rid of narrow interest property tax legislation and simplify the propety tax laws. Creating a new tax break or new class rate for every greasy wheel is not the answer. For some very good recommendations, I suggest reading the Final Report of the Propert Tax Working Group, which spent a lot of time and effort coming up with some great ideas that would help reduce the complexity of our property tax laws and procedures. The report can be found on the Dept. of Revenue website.

Somebody should remind Lewinski that his buddy Tim Pawlenty was responsible for the largest property tax increases in 20+ years.
