Amesbury considers an "underride"

Yes, someone in Amesbury thinks they can afford it. More power to them if they can.

This marks the second time Amesbury has considered an underride. In 2001, a $1.5 million underride proposal lost by 19 votes at the polls.

The state Department of Revenue has on record only 14 underrides -- 13 of them successful -- since the advent of Proposition 2 1/2 in 1981.
