Trading tax places

Josh Goodman over at the 13th Floor, the fine blog that keeps track of state government goings-on for Governing magazine, has an interesting item today on how fiscal concerns are forcing some governors to deviate from the expected party paths.

Donkey_elephant_silhouettes_2 One state leader is touting the first budget in six years with no new taxes or tax increases, a veritable property tax relief budget. (Ties in nicely with my earlier post about local fiscal concerns in this area, don't you think?)

Meanwhile, the other statehouse leader is pointing to the courage required to call for new taxes. For the details on which govs are crossing tax paths, why and what their actions really mean, check out the full 13th Floor post here.
