TRENTON - Assemblyman Lou Greenwald says an innovative approach is needed to change the structure of property tax in New Jersey.

The legislator believes the promise of property tax reform has been hindered by partisan gridlock in Trenton. He says the state has relied too much on property taxes to fund items like education.

Greenwald says his plan would prioritize fairness to middle-class families and seniors, but he says making those changes wouldn't be easy.

"There is going to be pain," he says.

Greenwald wants to convene a series of bipartisan high-level meetings to find a way to finally tame property taxes.
