Gelber wants prop tax results; Rubio says they're coming

Frustrated by the lack of progress at last Monday's meeting on property taxes, House Democratic Leader Dan Gelber dispatched a sternly-worded letter Thursday to House and Senate Republican leaders. Download gelber_letter.htm

In it, he called for legislators to buckle down and promise to address eight crucial issues he considers pivotal to the tax debate when they meet next -- June 4. That is the one and only meeting legislators have scheduled before the June 12 special session begins.

Gelber also urged legislative leaders to look before they leap and hire an outside group to run econometric models of their proposals. The models could tell lawmakers what impact their proposed structural changes to the tax code could have on economies and markets throughout the state.

House Speaker Marco Rubio told the Herald Thursday that he has staff "working round the clock" to come up with those answers and there's no need to go outside for them. "Some folks will start attacking the process in order to slow down the results,'' he said.

Gelber disagrees. "Almost everyday there's a new plan. That's terrific, except it's really important to get it right. We don't get a glitch bill with a constitutional amendment. I'm worried we're not looking at the interlocking pieces sufficiently.''

Who cares what Gelber says? Only the pinheads in the media.THERE WILL NOT BE TAX RELIEF FROM OUR LEGISLATURE. They missed the opportunity and/or they sold out... A constituional amendment on the ballot put there by the people is the only salvation.Support Navarro.. is our only hope now.

I read the information on propertytaxreformnow.com and it makes perfect sense. It will put things back at what people can afford. The government will need to adjust their budgets and politicians will have figure out what to do with all their pay raises and pensions!

I hope they have saved for a rainy day!

Its been raining for years for the rest of the citizens of Florida every time they received a tax bill!
