Word is spreading

JUNE 10, 2016 - Newspapers, radio stations and internet-based information services have given our coalition significant attention in recent weeks, spreading awareness of the impact local governments are feeling due to the high volume of tax-exempt state land. Coalition leaders have also been contacting the seven statewide organizations that support the cause and asking them to become more involved. It's all geared toward persuading the legislature to approve an payment-in-lieu-of-taxes increase in conjunction with the 2016-17 state budget and accompanying tax code.
