Carcieri to sign property tax relief bill
PROVIDENCE -- Governor Carcieri plans to sign legislation this morning that would cap increases on local property tax and school budgets.
The bill would gradually lower the maximum annual increase to a community's tax levy from the current 5.5 percent to 4 percent, starting in fiscal 2008 and reaching 4 percent in 2013. The same limits would be applied to school budgets.
This morning's signing is scheduled for 10:30 at the State House.
