Prop 13 Tax Change Targets Corporations

Two democratic state senators have introduced a bill to change California’s landmark Prop 13 property tax law. They want to close what they call a loophole that lets big corporations avoid paying their fair share of property taxes. The measure would tax corporate property at fair market rates, bringing in an estimated $9 billion a year for schools and local government programs. Christopher Martinez reports from Sacramento.
