OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A bill to limit property tax increases to 3% per year is being filed in the state Legislature.

Current law allows property taxes to rise by 5% per year.

State Representative Bill Case says the income of homeowners isn't keeping up with property tax increases and the proposal gives them a break.

Representative Guy Liebmann says a homeowners' property taxes will double in 14 years under the five percent annual increase. He says at 3%, taxes will double in 24 years.

The bill would send a proposed constitutional amendment to a vote of the people to prevent property taxes from rising by more than 3% a year.
