Letter: Power-grabbing bill unacceptable

Thank you for the excellent editorial “Reject two anti-local tax bills” in the March 7 Forum. It was much-needed information.

Is it possible Rep. Jim Kasper, R-Fargo, also failed to consider inflation when crafting his power-grabbing bill? We can all remember when inflation was well above 5 percent a year. Where would that leave a school district with a desperate need for building expansion or a small town with a disaster but limited to a 3 percent revenue increase?

Future planning appears to have become an oxymoron for some of our legislators.
