Subject: Property Tax Exemption for Surviving Spouses
Please join me in co-sponsoring a bill that will amend Article VIII of the state Constitution to extend the state’s property tax exemption program for disabled veterans to the surviving spouse of soldiers killed in action.

Currently, the program’s guidelines allow the property tax exemption to be transferred to the surviving spouse of a totally disabled veteran when he or she passes away, but it does not allow the exemption to be given to spouses of those killed in action.

The bill will correct this inequity by extending the property tax exemption to needy widows and widowers of those soldiers and airmen killed in action.

Thank you for your consideration in extending this important benefit to military widows and widowers in need.

Introduced as SB1109
