Schneider: New Legislators Needed for Real Property Tax Changes

by Amy Iler

North Dakota State Senator Mac Schneider confronts the issue of property taxes in North Dakota. Schneider says we have had good ideas and they have gone deated.  And while property taxes shouldn't be a partisan issue, the Governor's task force doesn't have any Democratic legislators on it and certainly someone like Sen. Dotzenrod would have been a great benefit. 

Schneider says while the Majority party had a bold proposal that would have cut the extraction tax by 30% (which was rolled out with much fanfare), there was no plan for property tax relief.
