• Will School Property Taxes ever be eliminated here in Pennsylvania?

    The state Legislature will be returning from thier summer recess later next month. Many are hoping that HB 76 & SB 76, The School Property Tax Independence Act will get enough co-sponsors to get them out of the Finance committees and onto the full House & Senate floors for an up or down vote.

    Right now there are 23 co-sponsors for Senate Bill 76 and 91 co-sponsors for House Bill 76. In the Senate they need a total of 26 co-sponsors to get it out of committee and 102 co-sponsors in the House.

    Do you think there will be enough support for these bills by the time our lawmakers come back from their summer break on September 23rd?
