MEMORANDUM

Posted: May 4, 2020 12:05 PM
From: Representative Barbara Gleim
To: All House members
Subject: Entertainment/Amusement Tax Relief
 
I am planning to introduce legislation that would temporarily suspend the tax on admission to places of amusement in Pennsylvania.

The state’s tourism and entertainment industry has an economic impact of almost $45 billion dollars a year and supports over a half a million jobs.  As you can imagine, it has been devastated by the current crisis, and the many popular amusements and recreational sites that have had to close are facing a long and painful economic recovery.  Some may not make it back.
 
I believe that suspending the current tax on admissions will help provide a lifeline to our attractions and give them the breathing space they need to stay economically feasible, as they safely reopen to a new norm.
 
Please join me in cosponsoring this important legislation.



Introduced as HB2519
