A Modification, Problem Solved


Dear Source:
The rate structure as proposed is a fair and equitable plan. The senate should pass it.
However, to resolve the St. John problem, those residents' tax bill amounts should be frozen at current levels, and only when a property is sold, should the new tax rate take effect. That way, the current property owners will not suffer massive increases, but when a new buyer comes along, he/she will be prepared in advance for what the new tax rate is, and will take that into consideration before they buy the property.
Make this one modification to the bill, and vote again.
