INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - There's a referendum on the November ballot that could lead to permanent property tax caps in Indiana and supporters of the caps launched a campaign today in Beech Grove.
The rally at the home of Randy and Denise Douglas is the beginning of an effort that will include campaign commercials and grass roots organizing.
The Douglas home was chosen because their property tax bill was reduced by $300 by the temporary caps that now limit property taxes to 1percent of the home's value. Organizers say it's a home that has median value and typical results.
Paul Wyman of the Indiana Association of Realtors told the rally, "Let's provide a certainty to the American dream of home ownership and let's send a message to the rest of the United States of America that Indiana is an awesome place to own a home and to live."
Governor Mitch Daniels is the honorary chairman of the group calling itself the Hoosier Property Tax Reform Alliance.
