House to consider pair of tax bills

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia House lawmakers are expected to consider
a pair of bills that could change how residents pay their property
taxes.

Lawmakers are scheduled to vote today on a proposal that would
limit property assessment hikes to no more than 3 percent each
year. They also will debate a separate proposal that would preserve
a property tax break for homeowners this year but could eliminate
it next year.

The proposal to limit assessments has faced stiff opposition
from local governments, who say it could rob them of badly needed
revenue that could fund schools and other essential services.
