Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, who is up for reelection this year, signed a major property tax cut on Wednesday. In doing so, he was abiding by the "Riley Rule" (after Alabama Gov. Bob Riley): Propose tax increases early in your term and tax cuts late.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
