Judge: Property tax system is unfair (Xerxes Wilson & Jeanne Kuang)
News Journal report: Vice Chancellor Travis Laster has issued a ruling addressing one of the major issues in the pending school funding case. He finds that the current property tax system in Delaware, with a long-time failure to reassess property values, results in major discrepancies in the burden on taxpayers and is therefore unconstitutional. The next step will be to establish a process to remedy the situation, which will apparently take place under the court’s aegis. The other major issue in the litigation, adequacy of funding for disadvantaged students, is still pending – no word as to when that shoe will drop.
