State senator wants more tax cuts

-A A +A
By Jeff M. Hardison

A recently adopted amendment to the Florida Constitution does not go far enough in cutting taxes State Sen. Charlie Dean told the Chiefland Rotary Club on Feb. 13.

Dean was in the Florida House of Representatives for the five years prior to the recent special election that put him in the Senate. Voters chose him for the District 3 seat of former Sen. Nancy Argenziano, after she became a member of the Public Service Commission.

When Dean and some other senators heard their more dramatic proposal failed to pass the Rules Committee, they knew that plan was dead, he said. Dean voted for the amendment to be put on the ballot, he said, because although it was not as far-reaching as he wanted, it would reduce property taxes.

In regard to the value of property, Dean said he is not attacking property appraisers. Property appraisers tell people that the Florida Department of Revenue forces appraisers to take certain actions, Dean said.

"I want to loosen up the noose," Dean said. "I don't want you to tell me you had to do that because the Department of Revenue made me give you that appraisal."
