Attkisson takes next step to eliminate prop tax



State Rep. Frank Attkisson's push for a November 2008 ballot initiative on property taxes has an official name: Florida's Foundation for Tax and Economic Reform Inc.

Though details of the Marco Rubio-like "tax swap" proposal were previously revealed, the non-profit group was announced today.

"We're still looking at how we're going to go about it," Attkisson said of his plan. "Once we make that decision, which I think will be forthcoming, then we create a political committee" to raise money to support the idea.
