A majority of voters in a recent poll support a new state law placing more restrictions on how much property tax local political subdivisions could collect through tax levies or valuations.
In a poll of constituents of the eight members of the Nebraska Legislature’s revenue committee, 62% favored an additional property tax limitation, the Platte Institute said.
Seventeen percent were opposed and 21% were unsure.
This result bridged partisan divides.
On the high end, 70% of voters in Sen. Groene’s District 42 in Lincoln County support more limits. On the low end, 56% in Sen. Crawford’s District 45 in Sarpy County support such limits.
Voters remain closely divided on proposals to increase other taxes to reduce property taxes, or cutting government spending to achieve property tax reductions, the poll showed.
The Platte Institute is an advocacy group for conservative government practices.
