Kansas Boating Measure Causing Confusion

Oct 30, 2012

Supporters of a Kansas constitutional amendment that would change the way property taxes are charged on boats say the wording on the ballot is confusing.

The change would give legislators the authority to reduce property taxes on boats. Wildlife, Parks and Tourism Secretary Robin Jennison says that two words on the page-long question are confusing early voters.

The question is asking voters to add the words "and watercraft" to the constitution regarding the levying of property taxes.
