[r53] Statements from Rep. Bob Cherry (2/28/2008)

Thursday, February 28, 2008

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

Rep. Cherry on SJR 1:

"I want the legislation to move, but I don't want to support what amounts to a new income tax. We have no idea how this will actually affect homeowners, local governments or schools. I just can't support legislation that is intended to go into the state Constitution without knowing how it will affect Hoosiers."

Rep. Cherry on SB 345:

"Behind property taxes, this issue is one that constituents have been most concerned. The federal government has abdicated its responsibility and we, at the state level, must deal with it. This isn't a permanent solution, and I hope to remove state-supported benefits to undocumented immigrants during conference committee."
