ABSTRACT
This article offers a response to the commentary of Michael Bell and Ronald Fisher on the measurement of the potential efficiency loss associated with state limitations on local taxing and spending powers. Bell and Fisher indicate, the logic of the median voter model does not rule out the possibility that the benefits from controls to taxpayer voters having low preferred service levels could exceed the losses incurred by those preferring median or higher service levels. The author of this article believe that additional mechanisms to strengthen the link between public service demands and supply may be desirable, state limitations on local taxing and spending power, of the form usually proposed, remain an inappropriate solution.
