ATLANTA (AP) The 110-63 vote Thursday came after lawmakers failed to pass a separate constitutional amendment aimed at slowing the growth of assessments. That proposal failed to get the two-thirds votes needed.
Supporters say the plan would help lower taxes while preventing
local governments from raising revenues through a ``back door.''
Critics say it would deprive local governments of the revenue for
crucial services such as police protection and education.
It now goes to the Senate.
