Common Place Book Entry 4

“Shall Property owned by the University System of Georgia and utilized by providers of college and university student housing and other facilities continue to be exempt from taxation to keep costs affordable?” -Georgia Referendum to amend the State Constitution

  1. Property owned by the University System of Georgia exempt from taxation.
  2. Words that jump out: other facilities, utilized, providers, student housing
  3. To me it seems that this isn’t a statement written out by a lawyer for the actual referendum, but rather a summary piece for the general public to understand the referendum’s goal. It’s possible that this was a press release piece, or from an article on the proposed continuation, but the audience it is aiming for is probably not one trained in law due too the lack of specificity and technical jargon.
