Regarding Senate Bill 76 – The Property Tax Independence Act.

Share

 

Senator Scott Wagner’s

Good Afternoon:

This week has been busy with many people visiting my Senate office in Harrisburg and many emails received regarding Senate Bill 76 – The Property Tax Independence Act.

If SB76 is passed it would eliminate school taxes on all real estate.

To be clear – local county and municipal taxes would remain in place.

The elimination of school taxes would apply to all real estate in Pennsylvania – residential, commercial and industrial.

To completely eliminate school taxes on real estate in PA the legislature has to find between $12-14 Billion Dollars of revenue from other sources.

Other sources mean new taxes, increased taxes, and lifting exemptions on goods or services not currently taxed.

There is

PA Must Not Accept EPA Rules

Share

by Beth Anne Mumford– from the Lincoln Institute. Beth Anne Mumford is also Pennsylvania Director of Americans for Prosperity

As of September 6, state lawmakers have exactly one year to make one of the most important decisions of their time in office: Will Pennsylvania submit an implementation plan to the Environmental Protection Agency as demanded under President Obama’s new carbon regulations?

For the well-being of every Pennsylvanian, it is imperative they choose not to.

The stakes could not be any greater for the Keystone State. Officially called the “Clean Power Plan,” this regulation would force Pennsylvania to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 35 percent by 2030. In so doing, it would effectively hand over control of our state’s energy grid to unelected

Terror Strikes in Paris–And The 2nd Amendment Connection

Share

From the Lehigh Valley Tea Party Second Amendment Committee News Letter

On September 11, 2001, following the infamous Islamic terror attacks against America that massacred more than 3,000 civilized people, New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani famously declared, “Today we are all Israelis.”

On January 7 of this year, when Islamic barbarians slaughtered more civilians, this time in France at the offices of a newspaper, Charlie Hebdo, the civilized world resoundingly echoed: J’ Suis Charlie, “We Are Charlie.”

Once again, Islamic terrorists have struck against civilized people. This time, on Friday Nov. 13, the barbarians launched simultaneous attacks against “soft” targets at a concert, near a soccer match and at other locations. This time, more than 100 civilized people were mowed down

HARRISBURG – Rep. Scott Petri (R-Bucks) announced today that he will sponsor a resolution calling on Gov. Tom Wolf to reject the placement of Syrian refugees in the Commonwealth until the federal government establishes increased security procedures to sufficiently screen the refugees.

 

Petri’s resolution will also request that President Barack Obama direct the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to review its security procedures for vetting refugees and to send a report detailing the tighter security measures to the states under consideration to receive refugees.

 

Petri’s action follows the terror

For Property Tax Relief, Give Voters Control

Share

| by JAMES PAUL at the Commonwealth Foundation

Should voters have the right to approve property tax increases? This is a central point of contention within a rumored budget framework that purports to provide Pennsylvanians with property tax relief.

In exchange for increasing the state sales tax to 7.25 percent—with higher amounts in in Allegheny County (8.25 percent) and Philadelphia (9.25 percent)—Pennsylvanians are promised significant property tax reductions, to tune of $1.5 billion.

Unless taxpayers are given proper control over property tax rates, however, nothing would stop school boards from large tax increases in future years. This could completely negate any tax relief doled out by the rumored budget agreement.

Potential Budget Agreement Looks Like a Shell Game and Tax Hike

Share

 

Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania

According to media accounts, there is some movement on the state budget, and it sounds like a bad deal for taxpayers: “Under the preliminary deal, state spending would rise to $30.7 billion, up about 6 percent from last year’s approved budget. It would be boosted by about $500 million in slot-machine gambling revenue that is currently passed along to homeowners as school property tax cuts. That money would be diverted into a restricted account to pay for public school employee pension obligations. Read More
