DICK BUNTGEN, NEBRASKA TAXPAYERS ASSOCIATION:
RESPONSE TO SEN. MAXWELL'S PLAN
We fell for the "create a new tax for schools and reduce the property
taxes" before. The property taxes went back up and the sales and income taxes have been increased to
pay for education. I believe the teachers union would jump at this, in order to get a new taxing
plan introduced into the system. The teachers union would only need 25 votes to increase any new
Sen. Brashear pushed his plan of taxing services to lower the tax rates and now look, rates are going
up even with the tax expansion.
Sen. Maxwell brings up some good ideas but there are a lot of problems in taxing and spending and
I'm afraid that Sen. Maxwell's plan is not that well thought out.
