Talk of special session swirls around constitutional tax caps

A top state senator says that Governor Mitch Daniels might call lawmakers into special session if they approve a property tax relief plan without passing a separate measure seeking constitutional caps on tax bills.

Daniels says he doesn't think he'll have to make that decision, saying a majority of Hoosiers want the constitutional caps and that most legislators would vote for them.

Daniels says any tax relief plan has to include legislation that would begin the process of amending the state constitution with caps on property tax bills based on assessed value.

Senate Tax Chairman Luke Kenley says he talked to Daniels yesterday and the governor said he might call a special session over the constitutional cap issue.
