ARTICLE VII

 

TAXATION AND FINANCE

 

Note

 

This article was renumbered from Article VI to be Article VII by Const Con 1978 and election Nov 7, 1978. The former Article VII now appears as Article VIII.

 

TAXING POWER INALIENABLE

 

Section 1. The power of taxation shall never be surrendered, suspended or contracted away. [Ren Const Con 1978 and election Nov 7, 1978]

 

Attorney General Opinions

 

Section 248-2, authorizing the counties to set real property tax rate, does not contravene this section, since article VII, 3, expressly authorizes delegation of taxing power to political subdivisions. Att. Gen. Op. 68-25.
