[r49] Statements from Rep. John Ulmer (2/28/2008)

Thursday, February 28, 2008

Start Date: 2/28/2008 All Day
End Date: 2/28/2008

Rep. Ulmer:"I can't support a resolution that bases property taxes around household income. I think that this is just a negotiating ploy and that we will ultimately go back to discussions on a 1-percent cap of assessed value.

"We need a proposal that will provide certainty and permanence for homeowners. As the resolution is currently written, it provides neither."

SB 345

Rep. Ulmer: "Undocumented workers clearly are the responsibility of the federal government. Their refusal to come up with a comprehensive solution leaves the state Legislature to create a plan. Our bill is a good starting point, and I hope that it is improved during conference committee. I would support adding in even more restrictions on undocumented workers."
