(The Center Square) – A bicameral pair of lawmakers proposed a constitutional amendment on Thursday ending the collection of school property taxes.
Sen. John DiSanto, R-New Bloomfield, and Rep. Perry Stambaugh, R-New Bloomfield, said Senate Bill 424 and House Bill 927 – if passed in two consecutive sessions – would allow voters to decide if the General Assembly should replace the levy with a combination of state and local sales and income taxes.
First, an observation that our founding fathers never wrote the constition "of" the United States. According to Black's Law Dictionary, 6th edition, below are the legal definitions of the word "for" and "of" so that you can see the difference.
I'm not going to try and discuss the legal difference between the words "of" and "for" - but see for yourself that they are legally different.
Read and think for yourself!
Should the DOJ Watch Out for State & Local Orders That Infringe on Citizens’ Rights?
“Many policies that would be unthinkable in regular times have become commonplace in recent weeks, and we do not want to unduly interfere with the important efforts of state and local officials to protect the public. But the Constitution is not suspended in times of crisis. We must therefore be vigilant to ensure its protections are preserved, at the same time that the public is protected.”
