Capitol Comments By Nebraska Representative Ed Schrock Everyone who wants more prop- erty taxes, please stand up. Now that you are sitting down, let's talk about the most significant issue for the district in this legislative ses- sion, the risk of increasing your prop- erty taxes because of cuts in state spend- ing. This is not to say cuts to state spend- ing are a bad idea, or off limits for dealing with the state's fiscal crisis. The point is we better consider the consequences of specific cuts, in terms of their predictable impact on local property taxation, before jumping on the 'let's just cut' bandwagon. Tha reasonable aplJI, oach "requires refle - tion on the interconnectedness of state and local governments, revenues, and services. Prudence requires we antici- pate the local impact of state action. The legislature can only play de- fense at this point of the budget game. It is early in the session and there will eventually be time for considering leg- islative proposals in the committee hearing process. But for now. the leg- islature is left to react to the governor's budget proposals and these simply com- prise a laundry list of cuts. I would characterize many as drastic cuts in terms of their potential impact on your property tax bill. Education cuts are the most visible and obvious threat to property tax levys. The 10 percent cut to state aid to schools amount to $65 million a year that may be shifted to the property tax burden. Many districts have already raised levys in order to compensate for lack of state aid. Some districts simply don't have sufficient property valuation to make it with reduced state aid. In addition, a $14.6 million cut in state aid for spe- cial education adds a local burden that has, in many cases, been unaccounted for in local effort. Cuts to local governments, coun- ties and cities, 10 board, will inevitabb to property made up with a local sales The 10 percent cut to districts can only result tax increase.
