Property tax Bills into the Constitution is a must. Doing so would put the measure before a statewide referendum in 2010. But that priority could set the stage for a Battle with democrats who control the House. Democratic House speaker Patrick Bauer of South Bend has strongly suggested waiting until 2010 before deciding whether to pass the Resolution a second time. The phased in Caps which were enacted into Law last session will save property taxpayers and estimated $229 million this year and $524 million in 2010. But that is Money that school districts and local governments wont get although lawmakers steered an extra $120 million to schools Over the next two years to soften the hit on them. Bauer shares concerns with local government and school officials that the Caps could Force cuts in Public safety and other local services or Lead to big increases in local option income taxes.

In 2010, the Caps on Homeowner Bills would drop to 1 percent of assessed value 2 percent for rental property and 3 percent for business property. Those Are the Levels that would be amended into the Constitution. If the Resolution is not passed a second time this year or next then the Long process of amending the Constitution would have to Start All Over again. Bauer said thursday that the reason the Caps were phased in a is to make sure that this is something workable and you could continue to have Public safety for instance and other services and it Force up other taxes in an outrageous he said he was open to amending the Caps into the Constitution a but it is subject to the actual experience in �?T09.�?� but Republican gov. Mitch Daniels and Republican leaders in the House and Senate want to move Forward on the constitutional amendment in 2009. Senate president pro Tern David Long of fort Wayne said he is concerned that the resolve to Amend the Constitution might weaken unless lawmakers pass the Resolution a second time in 2009. Putting the Caps in the Constitution would prevent judges from striking them Down and make it More difficult for future Legislatures to undo. A i think moving Forward now makes a Strong statement to the taxpayers of this state that we intend to make these permanent a Long said. A we think its important to move Forward and press Forward immediately and not wait and listen to the hues and cries of the local governments because there is some Belt tightening going on throughout the state a he said. A we understand that and we knew that was coming and so did Long said enacting a balanced state budget was also a must a a it a crucial that in these economic times that the state live within its Means a he said. Kenley said that could mean no increased funding for schools and universities. A if we get an Opportunity to increase education by an upturn in the Economy then that is listed As a priority and we would want to do that before doing other things a he said.
