Abstract:
Property tax revaluations in difficult economic times sometimes produce taxpayers' angst and outrage. Twenty-seven counties conducting revaluations were met with resulting taxpayer complaints. Even more surprising were the protests and responses from several boards of county commissioners. Boards in six counties voted to repeal or postpone the revaluations and four did so, even though they were advised they were in violation of state property tax law. The N.C. Department of Revenue, Attorney General, and N.C. General Assembly all weighed in--the result being a law that approved all six repeals of the 2009 revaluations.

Abstract:
Many states and localities are enacting their own immigration-related laws and ordinances. Such laws raise a number of constitutional issues, including federal preemption issues. What is the permissible scope of state and local action in this area? When are state and local immigration laws preempted by federal law? This bulletin explains general preemption principles and provides an analytical tool for determining whether proposed or enacted immigration-related laws may be preempted (and thus invalidated) by federal laws.

Abstract:
A wide variety of benefits, including Medicaid, food stamps, and school lunch programs, are provided by local governmental agencies with support by federal, state, and local funding. Questions often arise at the local level over whether these benefits and services may or must be denied to individuals who are not United States citizens. Moore explains how federal law categorizes noncitizens for purposes of benefit eligibility and then describes the legal rules for determining noncitizens eligibility for federal, state, and local benefits.
