    re: meals tax: Who can comment on the facts of this piece of the proposed legislation? –
    “David Edelman, chair of Invest in Fairfax, calls the meals tax a
    “win-win for everyone in our community” as it will stop annual property
    tax hikes in order to fully fund county and school services.”

    How long
    will this legislation hold any increases in property taxes?
