Homestead exemption amendment killed by Senate

February 25, 2008

The State Senate killed a bill that would have allowed the voters to vote on a constitutional amendment that would have allowed cities to exempt or defer up to 20% of a residence’s real estate taxes. Read the article on Pilot Online and read how ALL the Virginia Republican Senators and two Democratic Senators killed the bill on Vivian J. Paige’s Blog.
