Praise is due members of the south-central Kansas legislative delegation for their bipartisan efforts to spare disaster victims from paying property tax on destroyed homes. There are significant differences between the bill that passed the Senate unanimously Wednesday and the House version, including whether the cost of the tax relief would fall on the state or individual counties. But many lawmakers clearly recognize the unfairness of receiving a property-tax bill in December for a house that was blown away in April, which is what some south Wichitans experienced in 2012. Good for area legislators for leading the way on this commonsense fix.
