|From:||Senator John H. Eichelberger, Jr.|
|To:||All Senate members|
|Subject:||Requiring Supermajority Vote for Tax Increases|
|I plan to re-introduce a Joint Resolution which would propose an amendment to the Pennsylvania Constitution. That amendment would require a two-thirds (2/3) vote in each house of the General Assembly before approval of any legislation to either increase the rate of existing taxes or licensing fees, or to impose a new tax or license fee.
Co-sponsors of the legislation (SB 306) in the 2013-2014 session were:
VOGEL, FOLMER, RAFFERTY, HUTCHINSON, WAUGH AND D. WHITE.
Please join me in sponsoring this important taxpayer protection.
Introduced as SB325
