ROME (Reuters) - One of the partners in Italy’s ruling coalition is working on scrapping a property levy in a measure that would be worth 1 billion euros ($1.1 billion) to taxpayers, Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini said on Tuesday.

Salvini, whose League party governs alongside the 5-Star Movement, also told reporters in Rome that he wanted to re-open discussions on European Union budget limits, which he has repeatedly criticized.
