FLORIDA — The Florida Legislature put Amendment 6 on the ballot to help spouses of disabled veterans keep their property taxes lower, even after those vets pass away.
Here’s what it says on the ballot:
Dr. Matt Corrigan, the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Jacksonville University, says voters will overwhelmingly check “yes.”
“This expands the benefit from the combat wounded or affected veterans to their spouses. I think this one’s easy, because I think most people want to support the spouses of combat-affected veterans.”
However, similar to Amendment 5, this would reduce the amount of property taxes collected by the government, which would impact the funding of public services like police and firefighters.
