Should taxpayers be given more time?

Senator Bunch introduced Bill SB381. This bill would give taxpayers an additional 6 months, a total of 18 months, to redeem their home after it has been sold for unpaid taxes. This is still 6 months less than the two years provided in common law. Senator Bunch and Senator Kyle debate who are we here (in the General Assembly) to serve? The taxpayers or government? The bill was passed by the Finance, Ways and Means Committee.
