Relief for Farmers

August 1, 1932

A tax limitation law passes in the Statehouse.

In the depths of the Great Depression, more relief is needed from property tax. Forty thousand farmers, whose names appeared on a petition, ask the governor to call a special session to take action on their problem.

Action is taken by the legislators which set a $1.50 tax levy limit per $100 of taxable property. The rate, however, is controlled by the county boards and often exceeded this maximum.
