June 8, 2010

Senior advisor Iris Lav discusses why a property tax cap in New Jersey is likely to end up reducing essential educational programs and services — as well as other public services – and would not make New Jersey’s government more efficient. Rep. Jay R. Kaufman of the Massachusetts House of Representatives explains the harmful impact that Massachusetts’ property tax cap has had on the state’s communities.
