An important message on an important issue being pursued by
our friend Darcy Olsen at the
Goldwater Institute in Phoenix…
“State and local governments across the country frequently resort to
waiving future property taxes to lure some businesses to move into their
community. This form of tax subsidy heavily tilts the playing field as a few
politically connected companies have their taxes waived while everyone else has
to shoulder the burden.
“Government planners often claim they have to offer property tax
subsidies for economic development. But it shouldn’t work this way. If property
taxes in a community are too high to compete for new business, then the tax
rates should be reduced for everyone.
“The vast majority of states have provisions in their state
constitutions, commonly called ‘gift clauses,’ which forbid tax subsidies for
private businesses.The Goldwater
Institute is working to revitalize state ‘gift clause’ protections for you and
“We have just filed a new lawsuit to challenge a form of tax subsidy
rampant across the country. In this case, ownership of a future apartment
complex in Phoenix actually would be transferred to the city government so the
property developer can avoid paying more than $8 million in property taxes. We
represent local established business owners who cannot receive the same tax
break and must watch their property taxes rise year after year.
“We will use our case to establish more legal precedent in support of
constitutional ‘gift clauses’ and other taxpayer protections.You can learn more about our case in
Englehorn v. Stanton by clicking here.”
We wish Goldwater well in its effort to stop such “crony

On what I believe
was the first major partisan vote in the State Assembly for the 2017
legislative session, we had one Republican go off the reservation yesterday and
vote with every Democrat in favor of a meaningless bill to amend the Nevada
Constitution to allow gay marriages even though the United States Supreme Court
has already overturned Nevada’s constitutional prohibition thereof.
keep a close eye on Assemblywoman Lisa Krasner (R-Reno). This is how
these things start.
“House Speaker Paul Ryan is openly targeting House
Republicans with television advertisements—while conspicuously not hitting
Democratic members - to try to browbeat them into supporting his healthcare
“The remarkable development, in which a GOP
leadership-connected organization is now opening fire on the airwaves against
Ryan’s own members, is ultimately one of the main tactics employed by Ryan’s
predecessor, former House Speaker John Boehner - one that was instrumental in
forcing his resignation in 2015.
“And while this is going on, with Ryan unrelentingly pushing
for this American Health Care Act - nicknamed by many Republicans who oppose it
‘Ryancare,’ ‘Obamacare 2.0,’ or ‘Obamacare Lite’ - members in the House GOP
conference are beginning to whisper about replacing not just Obamacare but
replacing Ryan as Speaker.” – Matt Boyle, Breitbart News, 3/10/17
