Subject: Please Oppose SB97 Property Tax Equalization Amendments

A $75 million tax increase is not necessary to equalize school district funding. Funding can be equalized in other ways. This proposal, if passed, will increase the burden on families and businesses.
This year the state has a $700 million budget surplus and education is receiving a majority of those funds.
It is time for government to tighten its belt as citizens have had to tighten theirs.
Please oppose SB97.
