You will see the question above on this year's ballot. This is a constitutional amendment that culminates a two year effort to correct an oversight in the real estate tax exemption for 100% disabled veterans. Attached is an excellent summary of the Amendment prepared by Del. David Ramadan (R-87), the Chief patron for legislation that put the Amendment on the ballot. It gives the key impact of the Amendment and details the solid legislative and veteran support it has received over the last two years. I urge a yes vote for the Amendment! You can help ensure passage of the Amendment by sharing the attachment with your family and friends and asking them to vote yes for this Amendment.
