Rock County "Dark Store" Referendum

Voters will consider the following question on November 6.  This is an advisory referendum - it does NOT change current law, nor does it compel any government action.

The following advisory referendum will appear on the November 6 election ballot:

"Question 2: Should the state legislature enact proposed legislation that closes the Dark Store loopholes, which currently allow commercial retail properties to significantly reduce the assessed valuation and property tax of such properties, resulting in a substantial shift in taxes levied against other tax paying entities, such as residential home owners, and/or cuts in essential services provided by an affected municipality?"
