The reality check begins for state legislators on January 8th in Room 431

Last night an alliance of property tax protestors assembled with candles on the steps of the Statehouse to let it be known that SJR 8 will not die in the Senate Rules Committee on January 8th without dire political consequence paid by the legislators who kill it. Today's Howey Political Report tells readers "on Jan. 8 at the Indiana Statehouse in Room 431, the Hoosier reality check begins."

Indiana property owners it is time to act. Please send this announcement to your friends and tell them to contact every state senator on this list and tell them to vote YES to SJR 8 and move the issue of property tax repeal to the house floor where it can be properly discussed.

Pro repeal legislators are waiting to help us. We've shown that property tax can be replaced without implementing the steps outlined by the Sheperd Kernan commission.

We need you and your friends to notify the following senators to tell them to vote "YES" to SJR 8.

YES! Front Page of Journal Gazette
in Fort Wayne. Eliminate property taxes and the Word Reform landed on the front page:

"Posted on Sun January 6, 2008
Tax reform debate stirs passions

It’s hard to tell how widespread the repeal movement is because it consists of several grass-roots groups. They include Hoosiers for Fair Taxation, Eric Miller’s Advance America, STOP Indiana and the Indiana Property Tax Repeal Alliance."

Keep up the great work! Tax reform is a Key issue in Indiana!
Thanks for educating and sharing the wealth of information.
