Poll: 85% of TNseans opposed State Property Tax

In a Jan. 7, 2001 Tennessean article Bonna de la Cruz reported on a Mason-Dixon Poll:

"When Tennesseans were asked whether they favor a state property tax, 85% said no and just 7% said yes."

Recently the State Comptroller, John Morgan went public with a plan for a state property tax.

Surely Mr Morgan is aware of this 2001 poll. Why then would he promote a "reform" plan so clearly and overwhelmingly unpopular? Hmmmmmm???
