DOVER – Lawmakers on the General Assembly’s powerful Joint Finance Committee pushed back against Gov. Jack Markell’s plan to cut $12.6 million in property tax breaks for seniors to help balance his $3.9 billion budget.
Markell proposed cutting in half the $500 state subsidy paid to seniors to offset property tax bills. But as budget hearings began in Legislative Hall on Tuesday, lawmakers showed little appetite for going along with that plan.
“This is going to be one issue that’s going to be difficult to get through this body,” Sen. Bruce Ennis, a Smyrna Democrat, told Markell administration budget officials.
