Prop 13 Tax Law is Targetted by Community Activists

A coalition of unions, religious organizations, civil rights and other community groups is launching a campaign to change California’s Prop 13 property tax law. They say the law has built-in loopholes that let big corporations avoid paying their fair share of property taxes. Their proposal would bring in up to $9 billion a year the advocates say are needed for schools, roads, and other local services. Christopher Martinez reports from Sacramento.
