By Matthew Falconer

The “Smart Cap,” which was formerly known as the Taxpayer Bill of Rights, limits state and local government revenue to the previous year plus an increase for inflation and population growth.

While the concept of a revenue cap on government is simple the ramifications are complex. The opponents of revenue limits, mostly government labor unions, will say the revenue limits will have “negative consequences” for Florida’s citizens.
