What do you think? Louisiana Constitutional Amendment #2 — Oil Well Property Taxes

There are seven constitutional amendments on the Nov. 3 ballot. Those items are often overlooked in a general election, all the more so during a hotly contested presidential contest.

All the way up to Election Day, we’ll be asking readers to sound off on the amendments. You can check out our cheat sheet guide to all seven here.

Amendment #2 on the Nov. 3 ballot, supported both by industry lobbyists and tax assessors, would change how assessors value oil wells to factor in how much the wells produce. Low-producing wells would be taxed less. High-producing wells would be taxed more.

How do you plan on voting? Tell us below. We’ll publish the survey results in the next edition of The Wire. (Sign up here if you haven’t already!)
