Augusta-Richmond County: Defeat referendum 102498 - The Augusta Chronicle

The concept of this sole countywide referendum question is good, but it is poorly worded and deserves defeat. Passage would provide a homestead tax exemption for people "totally disabled." But there's no concrete definition provided for "totally disabled."

There also appear to be loopholes. For example, a well-to-do homeowner could put a valuable home in the name of a "disabled" family member or relative, evading the intent of the law.
