Why Voters Should Reject the New Property Tax in November

Please consider the repercussions of a new state property tax before voting in November. Voters will be asked, “Shall the legislature be authorized to establish, as provided by law, a surcharge on investment real property to be used to support public education?” This proposed constitutional amendment is a wide-open invitation to expand the state’s taxing authority without any mandate to actually increase education funding. It should be rejected. Let me be clear: I am 100% in favor of increasing funding for education, I graduated from public school, my kids are products of Waialua High School, my wife is a teacher, and so is my sister. I support better pay for teachers and improved facilities
