Abstract

"The Talk of Maine" piece on Mary Adams and her referendum campaign that put the Taxpayer Bill of Rights (TABOR) on the ballot in November. The bill would rein in property taxes, require all levels of government to limit their spending dramatically, and force them to earn voter approval for any increase in taxes or fees. Two years ago, Mainers defeated a similar referendum, the so-called Palesky tax cap. With details on arguments for and against the measure.
