ALICE: Legislation for the rest of us

Some years ago, noted journalist and public servant, Walter Rybeck worked with Bill Filante, a California GOP State Senator to prepare and disseminate model legislation to enact land value taxation.  The venue at that time was ALEC, which at the time prepared legislation with a conservative and free market bent, much in line with GOP philosophy at the time (ALEC has changed quite a bit since the 1980s, and the entry has disappeared.)

Now, there’s an active group providing Progressive model legislation. It is the American Legislative and Issue Campaign Exchange or ALICE. ALICE provides an alternative counterweight to the well-stocked arsenal of conservative resources; a good thing in a free country. Here is their own description of who they are: http://www.alicelaw.org/about-alice

Recently, ALICE asked the Center for the Study of Economics (CSE) to provide examples of land value tax (LVT) legislation and ordinances, along with a rationale as to why a jurisdiction would utilize LVT at the several levels of government.  It is in the form of a booklet, of about 30 pages in length. Our entry is here, and is what we consider a fairly comprehensive variety of legislation that would be needed (with suitable alterations for the jurisdiction involved) to enact LVT:  http://www.alicelaw.org/catalog/1478  It is up to date with the current 2013 Connecticut Legislation, as well bills from a few years back.

UrbanTools plans to assist similar groups who have an interest but little hands-on experience with LVT in their education and outreach efforts.
