No Man's Life Or Property Is Safe...

...While the legislature is in session.

Or so goes the saying, anyway. That means that as of today, Floridians are in peril because the annual 60 day session got underway this morning.

Actually, this session promises to offer some fairly dramatic changes for Florida. The big issue this time around is going to be property tax reform. There is a radical (and wonderful) plan to eliminate property taxes entirely by raising the state sales tax by a couple of cents. Naturally, the usual suspects are screaming that it is regressive, unfair to the poor, etc. etc. etc.

It won't pass because it's too radical, but it's a shame because it would be a great thing. There will be some sort of reform though and that's what counts. Even half a loaf is better than none at all.
