House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session

To: All House members
Subject: Resolution – Amend PA Constitution – School Property Taxes
In the near future, I will be reintroducing language as part of a package of legislation to address school property tax reform. The language (former HB 598) will make a necessary constitutional change in order to allow the General Assembly to address residential school property taxes without impacting property taxes paid by commercial properties.

Under the constitution currently, all properties must be treated the same regardless of whether they are commercial or residential properties.
