2016 may be a short session for the Indiana State Legislature but it is certainly not short of property tax bills.  From proposed changes to farmland assessment, the maximum growth quotient, road funding and more, there’s plenty to discuss.  What could these changes mean for local governments and Indiana taxpayers?  Find out more in this session of On Local Government.
