property tax amendment

Question: Is this really something that belongs in the constitution?

Elderly Tennesseans could get some property tax relief if voters decide to amend the state constitution in 2006.

A constitutional amendment proposed by Sen. Mark Norris, R-Collierville, would freeze property tax amounts that people age 65 and older pay on their residences. It passed the Senate Finance Committee yesterday.

Last time I checked, legislature was able to pass these things called “laws”.
