Under my plan, counties would tax for the services that they provide (sheriff, courts, etc.). Cities would tax for the services that they provide. If you live a city with its own police department, why should you pay a second time for a county police department?

You can view the proposed amendment here.
Shafer wants to know your thoughts on it, drop by this blog and throw in your two cents.
