« Alaska, don’t repeat Oregon’s Measure 37 mistake | Main | Alaska voters soundly reject Measure 37 clone »

October 01, 2007


We are for fixing 37. What gets me is that the people who are whining about property rights having been taken away from a few who could afford to keep the land all these years but they ignore the tax benefits that went along with that law. Farm land has been taxed at a small fraction of its real value. What I'd like to see is all would be land developers having to pay back taxes for the whole 30 some years when they turn the value from farming. Nobody even talks about that farm tax advantage. It's all what got taken away and nothing about what was given in compensation.
