Even more damaging thaN Homestead percentage increase bill is
MC/PG116-09 transit tax. It is a stealth bill and its impact cannot
be determined by reading it. It has the effect of overturning TRIM,
and I believe is under the radar for delegates. I believe they are
seeking cover, and believe they can pass 116 because you don't know
what this bill truly does (raises property tax 5 cents per hundred).
I will give you a better explanation tomorrow, but we had better be
holding the delegations' feet to the fire on both PG414 and MC/PG116-
09. they both raise taxes; they both open the barn door; they both
violate voter placed protections / they both overturn TRIM directly
and indirectly. Jack stated that MC/PG116 will raise $36million /
this will be done on the backs of homeowners.
