The Democratic mayor of New Jersey's largest city is supporting the Republican governor's proposal to cap property tax increases at 2.5 percent annually.
Gov. Chris Christie's proposed constitutional amendment would ban towns from raising property taxes by more than 2.5 percent
without voter approval.
On Monday, Booker said the cap would encourage towns to share services and called it a "historic opportunity."
Two Democratic lawmakers also are proposing property tax caps, but those wouldn't involve amending the Constitution and would allow exceptions for things like the rising cost of public employees' health care premiums.
