This is not one those droning meetings where presentations are made and you struggle to stay awake for an hour. The main agenda item is Public Comment, so please do. I called this hearing for the sole purpose of getting public input. The estimated tax impact of the current proposal is around $80/yr on a $200,000 house.

If you can not participate tonight, you can email your thoughts to your local Representatives and have them present them. We need your name and the town you live in in order to add your comments to the record.
