Guest Host: Jen Golbeck

A legislative fight is brewing over property taxes in Prince George’s County, where a tax reform initiative in the 1970s limited increases to percent. Now County Executive Rushern Baker is proposing a 15 percent increase to help fund schools, a move he says is allowed under a 2012 state law.
