Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:
For many years, partially disabled veterans in Arizona were given a property tax exemption. Then, a questionable court decision removed that benefit.
As president of the Arizona Assessors Association, I proposed, and my fellow assessors have unanimously supported, a restoration of the law that allowed a property tax exemption for partially disabled combat veterans.
The good news today is that Sen. J.D. Mesnard has created a bill (SCR 1043) that would restore those benefits to our wounded warriors! Please contact members of the Legislature (LD 8,11) to urge them to support this bill. To contact them by email or phone, go to www.azleg.gov and look for the member roster.
