Rubio on Property Taxes

November 6th, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

Opposition to the January referendum on property taxes is growing, but one non fan, House Speaker Marco Rubio, says he would not advise people to vote against the measure.† Rubio told reporters he would have liked bigger cuts.

“Itís kinda what we expected. Itís a small solution to a big problem. Thereís no reason, I mean I donít advocate people vote against it. Iíve made it a practice not to vote against property tax cuts in general. I donít think anyone should vote against it. But I think everyone recognizes that there is a lot more to do. I think thereís a general recognition that we missed an opportunity to come up with a big solution to a big problem and some level of frustration at the inability of the political process to arrive at big solutions to big problems.

Lawmakers are now looking to the Taxation and Budget Reform Commission for the next round of tax cutting measures. Recommendations made by the Commission in May go directly to the November Ballot.
