All Garland you talked should all over Europe again it's those it's remembers about the and tied prone to the pro trumped. Would you do Lucia who would chart in his letter to members of the legitimacy to legislate Jude concerning. Constitutional amendment for non profit exemption. It's loser right. Well the reason I'm doing and I think I could be brought I think it is crossing you and media a lot of money. And word change shouldn't some former patient. According to do you. And usually use literally got my hands. A 1996. Bureau government research found that two thirds. Utterly hawking would probably die and your brilliant. Two thirds of New Orleans real property tax volume was off the Rolex. 2011. Be jurors submitted 60%. Of property guy who was off the electoral. Local tax bodies had to. Forgoing more than a 120. Million dollars in annual revenues. June to be exemptions. March 2006. And beat you are pointed out. Bad weeks and it's constitution. Is significantly. Out of step with the national norms. When it comes to this issue. I'm they have this all wrong but thankfully I've got president and CEO. Who's set being bright. And legal and Vince CEO presidency you'll beat you or and we thank you so merged with the call. Person will tell Cleveland got anything Roland said general you play didn't talk to me. Well it. Looked like the clock for two days good qualifier. Glenn I'm sure. And I think how it would be your summary aligns precisely what what we've observed and our work over the past. And act out of twenty years with the looking at petitioning. But in the wind. When I mean I mean I echo back to it again. Two thirds of property values off the rolled 125. Million dollars in annual revenue import constantly. Talking about in this city we got to find new revenue which produced new revenue. When you Gordon of the legislature. Would these figures. What what can respond to see you again is that there is seen in July. A no brainer in the in on the on the side. We sympathize with the nonprofit. We appreciate what they're doing. But. It. We're paying a lot more because that camera. Right and it it would seem to and that break her in early for us and are used to now. What kind of response we might. We're hoping that the time is right particularly given. Critical needs in Moreland. Need to and create city rabbinate and the fact that our constitutional nonprofit. Exemptions early or read the tactic that otherwise could be supporting some of these critical need. And again Greg community have a problem. You can make that self abuse surveyed with these state constitution. Right. That's right we didn't make about Arlen. We survey. For apartments within them as recent work we get we surveyed that he's that competition BG art body of work. On that particular issue goes although it back in 96 and it's not before. I'm and it's been building prettier in terms of how critical issue as to the cities rocketed. That we're hoping we're happy that this is the aerobic and captured the attention of the legislators and alligator right. And I didn't know that it's 1974. Constitution. Remove language. The Louisiana itself and a constitutional. Use requirement. For nonprofit. Exemptions so in. We've reuse to be like feel watt 34 states. That's right they're used to be. An actual. You're apartment and it gets slightly better than Mac or London 1921. In the constitution prohibited for profit activity. So it seems that band just gradual erosion and ready year at likely under I'm not about. To get the point where we are today which but he answered. Very significant overreach saying. Relief for non profit from property tax. But actually paper the city's services that they use. And and I'm Gibsonburg. I think a burden surer than him. If I had. Church from them. Church clergy. In shortage of church property. Apply a head nonprofits. Ngo sitting who brought from on the beat today. They would say we is fueled practice shoot guns. Tremendously melanoma and what we can do for the poor moral what we can do for communities. The good work that we do who. Would you surveyed. Fifty states. And let me read his survey confirm Louisiana's nonprofit exemption from Maine and usual. Among 34. States. Where there are nonprofits. Operating. Because. They they get taxed. Well I I can't speak about. Particular data that the nonprofits and other state accurate they're really good point and I had a lot of extra they went clear on not BJ our position. Says his support and it it's it's not nonprofits. Should not get a property. Tax exemption. It's not to eliminate the exemption altogether. The purpose. What we're advocating an early for a fix things. These exemptions as to align them and Gail and use the actual public benefit that the nonprofits are providing. If you look at it from a contact of that being a public subsidy. I'm a relief from. An obligation to pay property taxes. And exchange for the public benefit that provided. Certainly your bill enabling comments supporting. That the very important nonprofit work in the community. Hum or go in and take breaker you've got to do. Constitutional. Amendment I think recommendations. Terrible legislature. As to how good should change stay Willits. Were worth thinking about something that suggests sleep deep down. Constitutional. Amendments non profit organizations. But it is saying no I'm prompted the exemption. That is costing. Us tremendously. And the question becomes who we'd limit the exemptions. Do we establish parameters. Do we do more coming right back your thoughts comments two's are general 170. Double rubbed via. Very gentle words things go your role of governmental groups are sent a letter to members state legislature recording comments to from them and war. Nonprofit. Exemptions. 1996. Beat Europe around two thirds of New Orleans through properly done it was all that tax roll. 2011. BG or has some 60%. Of property Dolly was all of that that role. Local taxing body. Lost about a 125. Million in annual revenues. Geared to these exemptions. March 2006. During the age York. Points out the Louisiana constitution. Is significantly. House out. Think wood about thirty states. Veterans enrolled as we have by Amy you going to and skiing. President CU Dijjer. And talk to me about the a constitutional. And then broad recommendations. I think Q did you send to the legislature. Started with those starting with the limiting exemptions. Right we have a lot of sites are on. We've got some pretty and you all saying and our competition relatives and nonprofit property tax exemptions and pretty important it's because each one of the prize acceptance that are for example. Right now. We've relieved. Watch club since fraternal organization. A property tax. Labor unions trade travel and commerce activity in professional societies. I reference is that particular become. And our survey work we that they're fairly unusual property tax exemptions and moderate you don't usually made. Activities by these parades are and the cat these category exempt. And I was laid pretty new low taxes. Proper contact. Cracked property tax exemptions yeah. What what we're recommending to declare it not that way eliminate that nonprofit property tax exemption completely. Let it at right rank him more outline what what's happening in the rest of the country and more outlined what was. Is. Reasonably related. To its original intent which was tipped to provide concessions and non profits to our. Providing what otherwise it would be a governmental service. Or who are providing at significant public benefit. That is a quid pro quo involved. Talk to me about prohibiting the legislature. From to apply in exempt. So what actually recommend is that we take right now what are on the and unusable category of exemption that it that bring those categories that line with what's happening elsewhere so in other words. Rather than the specifics that comments in a minute ago we led. Recommend and nonprofit property tax exemptions apply to organizations in the category of religious burial charitable. Cultural. And educational. Organizations. And use their properties. For nonprofit purposes. Now what then happens what's the constitutional amendment is in places that it thing convent on the Louisiana legislature. To specifically defined. The permissible. For a characteristic that activities. Under each of these but to get more specific legislation in terms of the activities that are contemplated. That's important for the governments and the minute together the public benefit components. That is expected from the nonprofit about the legislators. It sure is achieved by virtue of the legal framework that we haven't played. Anything else I'm not asking you about. Well you went to Oakland. Well I think the public had under and that. A big part of what we like to achieve this to ensure and the constitution. That property about it and by nonprofit. That has relieved of it property tax obligations. Is. That's currently used to for a nonprofit purpose. So delayed a lot currently written nonprofit use does not mandate it. Now the property could be sitting idle could be used for commercial purposes it could be used for other purposes not related to non profit. Ignition of the nonprofit Annika is still all within the context of conscience and that needs to be rectified. A media preview of what should be cured does I've appreciated called have agreed to. And that and it's this kind of ties him with what we did what Brad Flynn in the purse power. When I am house why don't we tell boy oh companies at double a good over the decade for the state. We chose can't wait we can't yet. 50000000400. Billion. To rebuild the coast. Oil company you are huge or privately and perhaps from the view of 80%. In the Louisiana coast. Good luck you've got to save your room plates. Well kind of the same thing but these nonprofits. And we appreciate it nonprofit fri eight. We've we appreciate what they're doing. Good to third it's all the tax roll. 60%. Of property back on you all the tax roll. 200 and when million dollars in annual revenue. And I and I'm going. Debra and walks and age with the oil companies under role. Good this is where it's always been taking care of our non profits. Ending Coleman told me were wrong to secure when they sent me.

We can't afford to take care of you wouldn't be more you won't have to take care of you. I mean in the in the red state to were. Perseverance. And self worth and so drop is so important. Why is that not the driving. Commentary. When it comes to these issues something think about it in the rule thing to. Yeah. Arrayed. You know gifts this style of our bureaus you and me.
