This bill would allow for property with a homestead exemption and owned by individuals 65 years of age or older, to be assessed at 20 percent of fair market value for purposes of educational ad valorem taxes. The reduced assessment would be allowed following a resolution by the local school district and approval by referendum. 

House Resolution 571 provides the required accompanying constitutional amendment.
