Sen. Norris revises Senior Tax Break Income Limit


Norris had proposed the bill to set a $50,000 annual income cap for eligibility (For the over 65 property tax freeze), with local municipalities having the option to set a lower limit. But, Norris said, the state's attorney general warned that the plan might be unconstitutional.

He's hoping that a change to the bill to set the cap at the median income for 65- to 74-year-olds will be approved.
