Democracy in Maine: Voters to Consider Property Tax Cap

In next week's elections, Maine's citizens will vote on "whether the state should adopt a California-style tax cap that limits taxes to 1 percent of a property's assessed value," according to yesterday's Washington Times. The article notes that Maine's taxes are among the nation's highest, and says there will be about a half-dozen similar referendums on ballots next week. Virginia has its own group interested in a California-style cap on real estate property taxes. The group is call Virginians Overtaxed on Residences (VOTORS). Learn more about VOTORS' at their website.
