Council to Vote on Kris Murray’s Resolution Supporting Proposition 13

kris murray at OCWD 11-15Along the items on tonight’s Anaheim City Council agenda is a resolution, proposed by Mayor Pro Tem Kris Murray, signifying the city’s support for preserving Proposition 13, California’s landmark initiative that rolled back property taxes and imposed strict limits on increasing them.

Liberals have hated proposition 13 since voters’ overwhelmingly approved it in 1978. It is about the only tax advantage California has vis-a-vis other states, and it is the last remaining protection we have against the rapacious appetite the liberal special interests running state government have for our money. These interests have been gearing up for to make another run at killing Proposition 13 via the “split roll” – removing Proposition 13’s protections from non-residential property.

The more cities that pas resolutions like Kris Murray’s the better; I’d be surprised if her resolution received anything less than unanimous support from her council colleagues.

    Prop 13 needs to be reformed, especially when it comes to commercial property. Fixing that loophole will return $8-$10 billion to the state’s coffers without placing homeowner tax rates at risk.

  2. The Funny thing is the right prefers Texas which has high property tax since they don’t have an income tax. Prop 13 is uneven it goes older homeowners a much bigger tax break. Eventually, the older whites will died off and moved which means prop 13 has less effect. Just keep it since changing to higher property taxes will not work now since property is worth a lot more and a radical increase. In fact in the future, the Republican Party in OC will have to not cut taxes all the time because Brownback Kansas experiment resulted in lots of lost revenue and 100 Republican Politicians are now supporting his Democratic opponent to stop the continue tax cuts.
