By Dawn Buckingham, State Senator

As a fighter for fiscally responsible limited government, I support low taxes, minimal government intrusion into our daily lives, and making sure government serves citizens, not the other way around. It is well known that our current property tax system too often places an undue burden on property owners. That is why I am proud to support Senate Bill 2, which has passed the Senate.

In addition to providing residents of all taxing jurisdictions with an opportunity for a lower rollback rate, Senate Bill 2 includes requiring automatic rollback elections on the uniform election date, and prevents an appraisal review board from increasing an assessed value of their property during a protest hearing.
