Republicans In State Senate Will Take Another Crack At Property Tax Reform

A new legislative session means a new effort to reform property taxes in Pennsylvania. Republicans in the state Senate will reintroduce Senate Bill 76, which would eliminate local property taxes and replace the lost revenue with a combination of higher sales and personal income taxes. Senator David Argall, Chairman of the Majority Policy Committee, says he will meet with each of his colleagues to see what they are willing vote for and what changes need to be made. The bill failed to make it out of the Senate in the last session with a vote of 24 to 24.
