State lawmakers have a bit of a trust issue to contend with as they work on the repeal of Michigan's personal property tax during the Legislature's last few weeks of the year. Phasing out the tax could mean loss of revenue for local governments, which would impact on police, fire and EMS service. But State Senator Phil Pavlov from St. Clair Township says any local fears will be addressed soon as the work on the bill moves forward. He has a meeting with the city of Port Huron on Monday concerning the changes. Bills to eliminate the tax are before the House Tax Policy Committee and are expected to move in the current lame-duck session. Pavlov says other issues seeing progress include a state run health care exchange, which would let consumers compare health insurance rates under the federal Affordable Care Act.
