(STATEHOUSE) - Look for a vote on the property tax reform package today.

Daniels' tax caps did make it through to the final version, which could cause concern in local governments.

A while back, Bedford Mayor Shawna Girgis told a Chamber Third House session that the tax caps, as they existed at the time, would cut the city's budget by almost $2 million over the next 2 years.
