|Subject:||*RE-DRAFT DUE TO A TECHNICAL ERROR* Co-Sponsorship of Legislation: A Joint Resolution proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, providing for exemptions and special provisions for the surviving spouse of any member of the armed forces of the United States.|
|Please note: This is a re-draft due to a technical error
In the near future, I plan to introduce a Joint Resolution for the surviving spouse of any member of the armed forces of the United States who was killed in action as determined by the United States Department of Defense, or who died as a result of injuries received while in active service. The surviving spouse shall be exempt from the payment of all real property taxes on the surviving spouse's primary place of residence, without any restriction on the spouse's relocating to another primary place of residence and without any requirement that the spouse reside in this Commonwealth at the time of death of the member of the armed forces.
The exemption shall cease if the surviving spouse remarries.
Introduced as HB697
