ATLANTA (AP) - The House is set to take another stab at a
measure that would double the state homestead exemption from $2,000
to $4,000.

The proposal passed the Senate in February at the urging of
Republican leaders. But it failed to win the needed two-thirds
majority in the House this month.

The chamber is expected to debate the proposal again Wednesday.

The proposal would allow votes to decide whether to expand the
homestead exemption.

Critics said it would force local governments to cut services or hike property taxes.
