2012 House Bill 5853: Exempt resident public safety personnel from property tax
  1. Introduced by Rep. Kurt Heise (R) on September 11, 2012, to exempt the residences of police and firefighters from property tax if the person lives in the same jurisdiction where he or she is employed. A state law passed in 1999 prohibited cities from mandating that public safety workers live in the jurisdiction; see also House Bill 5229 and Senate Bill 879, which would repeal that law.
    • Referred to the House Tax Policy Committee on September 11, 2012.
