The way self-proclaimed tax activist Lynne Weaver sees it, anyone who makes it to age 65 should not have to pay property taxes on their homes.

Now she is working with Randy Pullen, the former chairman of the state Republican Party, to try to put that exemption into the Arizona Constitution. And under their proposal, it would not matter how wealthy the homeowners are and how much the property is worth.

Their initiative drive would expand on a program approved by voters in 2000 that freezes the property valuations of eligible seniors.
