State Senator Bill Eigel says it’s time to end the payments. He sponsored the bill, SJR 44, which would ask voters to approve a constitutional amendment prohibiting counties and other political subdivisions from levying or collecting a tax on personal property.

His bill is currently being considered in a committee.

Eigel's selling point is that money saved by taxpayers will be spent to bolster the economy.

The state legislature is on break until January 8th.
