Democrat Vi Simpson offered several specific proposals during the traditional debate, while Republican Sue Ellspermann focused on the heritage of agriculture in Indiana. Libertarian Brad Klopfenstein provided some levity . . .
Simpson offered one concrete proposal – stop using state gas tax dollars to fund Indiana State Police and Bureau of Motor Vehicle expenses . . .
Ellspermann quoted a lot of statistics but didn’t provide a lot of specifics . . .According to Kelly, all three candidates agreed that Indiana's new property tax cap law unfairly shifts the property tax burden to farmland. Simpson would take the most radical approach be repealing the state constitutional amendment that caps property taxes on residential property at 1%. Ellspermann wants to change the way farmland is valued.
