The rule that prevents Terre Haute City Council from taking a stance on HJR3 was a hot topic of debate Thursday night. That rule says the council can't take a stance on controversial issues. In the two and a half hour meeting, the city council voted against taking out the rule. Last week the council did not vote to take a stance on HJR3 because of it. This week, they also did not take a stance on the business personal property tax. Mayor Duke Bennett says the cut could cost the city nearly $4.5 million.
