State lawmakers squabble over plans to ease property taxes

Democrats and Republicans in the state Legislature are accusing each other of stonewalling some of their efforts to provide a break on property taxes.

House Democrats want the Republican-led Senate to pass legislation that would put an 18-month moratorium on the so-called 'pop up' tax resulting from home sales. Supporters say the House-approved plan would give homeowners an incentive by letting them pay roughly the same amount of property taxes paid by the previous owner.

House Republicans want Democrats to allow votes on legislation that would prevent a homeowner's property taxes from rising in a year when the home's value declines.
