Voters Approve Proposed Virginia Constitutional Amendments

November 2, 2010

Voters approved proposed Virginia constitutional amendments granting property tax breaks to the elderly and disabled veterans.

They also endorsed a third that would increase the amount of cash the state could save for a rainy day.

The General Assembly endorsed all three earlier this year, but voters must approve the changes before lawmakers could take the next step and pass legislation to make them permanent.

Amendments approved would give local governments greater discretion in granting property-tax exemptions for people who are at least 65, or who are permanently or totally disabled.

Another would compel the legislature to exempt totally disabled military veterans from paying real-estate taxes on their primary homes.
