ATLANTA (AP) Lawmakers are scheduled to vote on Friday on a proposal that would limit property assessment hikes to no more than 3 percent each year. They also will debate a separate proposal that would preserve a property tax break for homeowners this year but could eliminate it next year.

The proposal to limit assessments has faced stiff opposition
from local governments, who say it could rob them of badly needed
revenue that could fund schools and other essential services.
