Text of measure
The official ballot text reads as follows:
Do you support an amendment to authorize the granting of ad valorem tax exemption contracts by the city of New Iberia for property annexed by the city after January 1, 2013?
Media editorial positions
- The Advocate said, "This amendment would allow New Iberia officials to grant property tax exemptions to residents of annexed areas. Whatever the merits of such a policy, we don’t support the authorization of a change that would apply only to New Iberia."
Path to the ballot
The legislatively-referred constitutional amendment required a two-thirds vote from members of both houses of the Louisiana State Legislature to be placed on the statewide ballot.
