    As we begin Memorial Day weekend, please join me in honoring all members of the armed services; both those who have served and those who currently serve, as well as their families, for the sacrifices they have made and are making for our country. The commitment made by each soldier in defense of our freedom is one I am so thankful for every day, and especially on Memorial Day.

    As you enjoy a safe and extended weekend with your family and friends, I hope you will also join me in remembering the men and women who have given their lives in service of our country.

The legislation called for a permanent statewide property tax freeze for all units of local government in order to provide suburban homeowners with immediate relief from skyrocketing property taxes.
