The Pennsylvania property tax 'mistake'

Sometimes something you do wrong can lead to something right. With my vow to keep the pressure on our state legislators to address property tax reform, I was trying to come up with a theme for this week's column. A mistake I made in last week's column was weighing on me, and then it hit me what a huge mistake connecting property taxes to public education was when it was first conceived, which led me to this week's rant. Only back then property taxes really didn't affect that many people because the cost to educate a child was so low. Those were the days!

Exactly right Stan! I know SB/HB 76 does not have as much support on the western side where property taxes are lower but we have to get that out of committee and out for a vote this fall. These other proposals to reduce but not eliminate it will do no good in the long run. Thanks for staying on top of this and DON'T STOP NOW !!
