For those of you that are interested, the SF Chronicle Monday June 29th debates Prop 13 pretty thoroughly. Here are the article links: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/06/29/MNUJ18EHVH.DTL&type=politics&tsp=1 and http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/06/29/MN8B18EL7H.DTL&type=politics. Authors Joe Garofoli and Michael Cabanatuan debate the crisis and the push by San Francisco assessors leading attempt to change the commercial side of Prop 13’s restrictions. …no mention of capital gains nor the ‘Step-Up-Basis’. We sent Mr. Garofoli our Aug. 30th, 2009 piece that was published in the Mercury News. It can be seen on our blog: https://jameshall.wordpress.com.
