BEECH GROVE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels made a push Wednesday morning to make property tax caps part of the state's constitution.

The issue will be on the November ballot and Daniels hopes the voters will approve a constitutional amendment to make the caps permanent.

Daniels says, “The central message to take from this morning is that what started as a genuine grassroots citizens movement must be finished in just that fashion,"

When he was asked about government units cutting services because of declining tax revenue, Daniels pointed out that local leaders can appeal to voters in a referendum to let them exceed tax caps.
