Off to Harrisburg

May 1, 2015 -- Two leaders of the Pennsylvania State Land Tax Fairness Coalition are off to Harrisburg next week for face-to-face meetings with at least 20 members of the Senate and House.

If successful, the organization’s mission would bring significant revenue to school districts, townships and counties that host a large volume of state-owned land.

Heading the statewide coalition are two commissioners from counties that would benefit the most, Paul Heimel (left) of Potter County and Pete Smeltz of Clinton County. They will be armed with maps, data and compelling arguments to support the passage of HB 343 and 344, now before the Pa. House of Representatives.
