Beat goes on

JUNE 24, 2016 - As negotiations continue on the 2016-17 state budget, the Pa. State Land Tax Fairness Coalition has been busy building support for its cause. Steering Committee members are meeting with leaders of the Pa. School Boards Assn. and the Pa. State Assn. of Township Supervisors. We’ve also recently made our case with the Pa. Assn. of Realtors and are seeking its support. Additionally, we’ve continued a media blitz that recently included an interview on WESA 90.5, the National Public Radio affiliate in Pittsburgh (listen to interview here). Editorials have been published in newspapers across the state.

We’ve also recently added graphics from Huntingdon County to our map gallery.

All of the recent activity is geared toward persuading the state legislature to address the injustice of the current PILT system for affected school districts, counties and municipalities.
