HARRISBURG – This month’s local TV report by Senator David G. Argall (R-29) features a recent roundtable discussion on Senate Bill 76, a bipartisan proposal that would eliminate school property taxes.
“The goal is to pass a bill that will eliminate school property taxes, as a majority of local residents requested,” Argall said. “This roundtable highlights the issues confronting not only the property tax issue, but school funding as a whole. This panel focuses on the question: how do we adequately and fairly fund our public school system? This television program gives viewers an in-depth look at the efforts in Harrisburg to address this pressing issue.”
The roundtable discussion, hosted by the Republican and Democrat Policy Committees, featured proponents and opponents of Senate Bill 76.
The roundtable featured input from several groups, including the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau, Pennsylvania Coalition of Taxpayer Associations, Pennsylvania Association of Realtors, Pennsylvania Chamber of Commerce and Industry, National Federation of Independent Businesses, Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center, Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association, Pennsylvania Institute of CPAs, and the Anderson Economic Group.
The unprecedented format allowed for direct response from advocates and adversaries of the proposal to eliminate school taxes.
