Gaining support

March 25, 2015 -- Leaders of the Pennsylvania State Land Tax Fairness Coalition added allies after a presentation to the Assessment and Taxation Committee of the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania (CCAP). Following the program, Committee Chairman Jim Hertzler (shown) of Cumberland County reaffirmed the committee’s strong support for HB 343 and HB 344, now before a Pa. House of Representatives committee.

Steering Committee members will be scheduling a meeting soon in Clinton County to organize a lobbying campaign. The organization has already gained the support of several members of the House of Representatives and Senate, CCAP, Pa. State Association of Township Supervisors, Pa. School Boards Association, Pa. Association of Rural and Small Schools, and local affiliates of the Pennsylvania State Grange.
