Lawmakers to study N.D. property tax measureNorth Dakota lawmakers will be reviewing the impact of a ballot measure that would abolish property taxes.
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota lawmakers will be reviewing the impact of a ballot measure that would abolish property taxes.
The proposal is a constitutional amendment that is scheduled to be on the ballot in June 2012.
It would get rid of property taxes and give the Legislature the job of providing replacement revenue for local governments.
An interim legislative management committee on Tuesday ordered a study of the idea.
House Republican majority leader Al Carlson of Fargo is the committee's chairman. He says some public hearings will be held around the state about the measure.
