THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:

St. Lawrence County lawmakers have scheduled a public hearing for a new law that will put more pressure on those who don’t pay their taxes on time by making it easier for the county to remove residents from properties it acquires from back taxes. The law would allow the county to take legal action on individuals occupying properties that have been lost due to delinquent taxes.

Do you agree with this proposed law?

Take the NCNow Survery.

Results will be posted Monday, April 20.
