Summary

    If passed, this measure will decrease property taxes for qualified citizens.

    The number of qualified former prisoners of war and the amount of each exemption are unknown, however, because the number who meet the qualifications is expected to be small, the cost to local governmental entities should be minimal. Revenue to the state blind pension fund may be reduced by $1,200.

    Measure Text
