• Should our State Legislature vote to eliminate school property taxes?

    In a couple of weeks two new bills are expected to be introduced in Harrisburg that would totally eliminate our school property taxes: House Bill 76 & Senate Bill 76. Funding for education would be shifted to an expanded sales tax. The rate would go up to 7%. There would also be an increase in the personal income tax to 4.34%.

    The bills need to get out of committee before they would go to the full House & full Senate floor for an up or down vote.

    Do you think these two bills have a chance of getting through the State Legislature and onto the Governor’s desk?
