First thank you Sen. Berger for your support of the citizens. For to long cities have been able to forceably annex areas and the citizens had no real voice in the process. The new law now gives citizens that voice. No one but city councils are shocked that citizens do not want or desire to be annexed. Citizens in affected areas deserve to decide if they want to be annexed by any city. Forced annexation has been used for a long time as a way to increase the tax base of cities. This amounts to nothing more than a pure money grab.
