Pawlenty property tax cap attacked
ST. PAUL - Rural and inner city communities would be hurt if Gov. Tim Pawlenty's property tax freeze plan is enacted, rural lawmakers say.
"Why should you always kick the dog at the bottom?" asked Sen. Keith Langseth following Pawlenty's fifth State of the State address Wednesday.
Langseth, DFL-Glyndon, and other rural lawmakers did not like the Republican governor's proposal to cap property taxes levied by local governments.
