Reprieve on Property Tax Increases

 SJR 9, a proposed Constitutional Amendment which would have made it much easier for county and local governments to pass non-school bonds and levies (and thereby increasing our property taxes) was not brought to a final passage vote in the House of  Delegates.
 Accordingly, SJR 9 will not go to the voters for a referendum vote and it will not become law.
Note: Also visit the Friday, March 4th, 2011 "Legislative Action Alert!" entry for further details about SJR 9.

Postscript: The House of Delegates' version of SJR 9 was HJR 29. Among HJR 29's sponsors were Delegates John Doyle and Tiffany Lawrence. For further details on this and all other legislation, go to "Links" on the right hand side of this website and click on "WV State Legislature".
