Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session

To: All Senate members
Subject: Sales Tax Holiday for Emergency Preparedness Equipment
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation establishing a Sales Tax Holiday for the purchase of Emergency Preparedness Equipment.

Simply put, the intent of this legislation is to encourage our residents to be prepared for emergencies. Overall, the bill would set two holidays, one week in the spring (March 6-12) and one week in the fall (September 4-10). Covered items would include generators (less than $3,000), shutters and other storm protection devices (less than $300), and items such as fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, and first aid kits (less than $75).

Please join me in cosponsoring this legislation, which came about as a result of hearings on the rewrite of Title 35 (Emergency Management Code). If you have any questions, please contact Nate Silcox of my staff at 717-787-6538 or nsilcox@pasen.gov.

Introduced as SB765
