House Committee Roll Call Votes

Committee FINANCE Date September 26, 2018
Bill/Resolution HB2523 PN3792 A09281 Type of Motion Adopt Amendment
Maker of Motion Rep. Kaufer Seconded by Rep. Keller
Brief Description
Removes the Act 1 requirement that a school district go through the process of appointing a tax study commission to issue a report prior to passage of a referendum which would allow taxpayers to vote on converting property taxes to an earned or personal income tax. In 2007, every school district went through this process following the passage of Act 1 and the information and resources would still be at their disposal if a school district wished to take up the issue again. This amendment is aimed at saving time and resources for our local taxing authorities and at removing a requirement which may have become a deterrent for some school districts wishing to change their tax structure.
