Summary

Present Constitution provides an additional homestead exemption on property whichis owned and occupied by a veteran with a service-connected disability rating of 100% by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Further provides that the surviving spouse shall be eligible for this exemption if the exemption was in effect on the property prior to the death of the veteran and the surviving spouse remains the owner of the property.

Proposed Constitutional Amendment provides that the surviving spouse shall be eligible for this exemption if the surviving spouse occupies and remains the owner of the property, whether or not the exemption was in effect on the property prior to the death of the veteran.
