At Home

This article focuses on various tax limitation amendments in the U.S. The Jarvis-Gann amendment to limit property taxes in California was passed by a thumping majority. The victory of conservative Jeffrey Bell over veteran liberal Republican Clifford Case in the primaries in New Jersey was strongly influenced by the issue of taxation. The citizens of Tennessee recently voted to place a constitutional limitation on taxes in the state. This tax limitation is against the interests of the spending lobbies. A national conference on tax limitation was held in Chicago, Illinois, a few weeks ago.
