SJR 9 is a proposed amendment to the West Virginia Constitution which will make it much easier for our county and local governments to pass bonds and levies, and thereby increase our property taxes.
SJR 9 has been passed by the West Virginia Senate and now, in the last week of this year's Legislative session, is pending a vote in the West Virginia House of Delegates.

Update: SJR 9 is identical to HJR 29, which did not pass the House of Delegates (see "Legislative Session News #5" entry, posted 2/22/11). SJR 9 has passed the Senate and now is pending a vote in the House of Delegates)
