Defining Liberals’ Excuses Pertaining to SB76

Share

By Rich Shuker

 

One of the statements made during the Senate debate on SB 76 was,” this is not a perfect bill.” This is true but, it’s 10,000 times better than what we now have; but before explaining some of the liberal fallacy let’s look at what Harrisburg feels is a perfect bill.

 

We need to go back to 2001 and look at what caused the pension crisis. This Bill must’ve been a perfect Bill, just look at the votes. How did this bill help the majority of Pennsylvania residents? Obviously it did the direct opposite, but according to the number of votes, this was a perfect Bill. So far, this Bill has cost the taxpayers over $50 billion.

Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania

As surely as night follows day, teachers’ unions insist every year that Pennsylvania needs to spend more money on education. One of the loudest voices for more money is the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers (PFT). The PFT has long resisted any changes to their contracts that would save money for taxpayers. Through one contract provision, teachers in the Philadelphia school district pay nothing toward their health insurance.

Update on SB76

Senator Scott Wagner

November 25, 2015 From State Senator Scott Wagner

This post is to give you an update on the progress of school tax elimination on real estate in Pennsylvania (Senate Bill 76).

After much debate and discussion on Monday in the Senate caucus, Senator Dave Argall later on the Senate floor offered an amendment to House Bill 683 that contained language that was similar to the language in Senate Bill 76.

The amendment was voted on by the full Senate – the vote was 24 – yes votes ( 18 Republicans – 6 Democrats ) and 24 – no votes ( 12 Republicans – 12 Democrats) – Lt. Governor Stack cast the tie breaking vote of no – so the

Bill shielding identities of police who use force passes Pennsylvania House

Share

State Representative Martina White

By / at Watchdog.org

Police officers are public employees paid with public money, but when they pull the trigger in the line of duty, Pennsylvania lawmakers say their privacy should be paramount, at least until an investigation is completed.

The state House on Tuesday passed a controversial bill that would shield — at least temporarily, but maybe indefinitely — the identities of officers who discharge their guns or use force during the course of their official duty.

House Bill 1538 would prevent local officials from identifying those officers unless a subsequent investigation led to criminal charges. If no charges were filed, then local officials

A Call to Action on SB76!

Share

 

Monday the 23rd of November saw the Pennsylvania Senate vote down SB76, the School Real Estate Tax Elimination Act. The negative vote was on the slimmest of margins at 24 nay and 24 yea, with Lt Governor Stack voting the deciding 25th nay vote.

We commend all 24 Senators who voted for 76. We question the Party Leadership in both political parties for their opposition. Polls throughout Pennsylvania show a huge majority of citizens wanted this legislation to pass. The opponents pointed to a supposed short fall in revenues for the 500 school districts if 76 passed. However, the latest IFO Report clearly shows that if all revenue sources are considered, then 76 is revenue neutral and may well create a huge

5 Gimmicks in Highway Trust Fund Bailout

Share

Michael Sargent -from The Daily Signal

 

On Thursday the Senate sent yet another short term extension of the Highway Trust Fund to the president’s desk (the fourth this year). This latest short term extension means that members of the highway bill conference have until Dec. 4th to pass a bailout through hammering out the small differences between what has passed in the House and Senate.

Unfortunately, neither the House, nor the Senate plan offer any meaningful reforms that would address the trust fund’s chronic overspending that has already required $73 billion in bailouts since 2008.

Was the PA Senate Vote on SB76 a set-up?

Share

 

On Monday, November 23rd, the Pennsylvania Senate conducted its’ debate and vote on SB76-the School Real Estate Tax Elimination Act. The Senate had placed an Amendment to SB683 to insert the provisions of SB76 into that piece of legislation.

The debate was interesting, and the vote was exceptional at 24 yea and 24 nay with the Senate President, Lt. Governor Stack, casting the deciding nay vote making the outcome 25-24 against giving Pennsylvania taxpayers the much needed School Tax break. Those opposed to 76 made many arguments about not raising the Income Tax and Sales Tax which SB76 would have done to eliminate School Real Estate Taxes. However, those slight increases would have been minor compared to the savings in School Taxes.
