Click on the link below to view a television news story, featuring Mackinac Center President Lawrence Reed. This story examines whether Proposal A, which passed 10 years ago this month, actually accomplished what its proponents claimed it would — lower property taxes, increased school revenue, and a decrease in the funding gap between school districts in richer vs. poorer areas.

The story aired on WOOD-TV, Channel 8, in Grand Rapids on March 16, and can be viewed at http://www.mackinac.org/media/video/2004/WoodTV8-PropA.mov
