DiSanto Proposes Constitutional Amendment to Eliminate School Property Taxes 
HARRISBURG—Senator John DiSanto (Dauphin/Perry) has introduced a proposal that would allow Pennsylvania residents to vote directly on the elimination of school property taxes through an amendment to the state constitution.
 DiSanto said, “Constituents in my district and across the entire Commonwealth are suffering greatly under the weight of constantly increasing school property taxes. The status quo is unacceptable, and voter approval of this constitutional amendment would force the General Assembly to address this issue once and for all. Powerful and entrenched special interests opposing reform would no longer be able to block needed action.”
For decades, relief measures such as school property tax referendums and casino gaming have fallen short of expectations and have done little to ease the burden of Pennsylvania homeowners—especially our seniors living on fixed-incomes. 
As recently as 2017, Pennsylvania voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment expanding the homestead exclusion to 100 percent of a home’s assessed value, yet three more years have passed with no meaningful property tax reforms. 
DiSanto said, “I continue to advocate for and support the bipartisan Property Tax Independence Act, introduced as Senate Bill 76, but it has been nearly five years since this measure was last considered on the floor of the Senate, when it was defeated by just one vote. The Governor has expressed his opposition. It’s past time to allow the people of Pennsylvania directly to decide the future of school property tax elimination.”
Much like the Property Tax Independence Act, this constitutional amendment would have the General Assembly replace school property tax revenues with a combination of state and local sales and income taxes. DiSanto’s proposal would guarantee that our local school districts receive the same amount of revenue as they did from the property tax, so education funding would be more equitable for taxpayers while ensuring school needs are met.

The word from very good sources is that Turzai is not re-running, and likely will not be running for governor as many of us have expected.  Who he is replaced with will be of extreme importance.

I'm told that he was not gaining the support from his caucus that he thought he would have for a potential governor race.  Part of that has been our recent efforts to put heat on OUR reps for continuing to vote for him for speaker.  He has been a huge road block for property tax elimination.

In response to our pressure, some Reps have been demanding that Turzai change his stance or he won't get their support.  Other reports say they really don't believe he's electable on a state-wide level, something I and others in our group(s) agree with.

IT IS IMPERATIVE that we begin contacting our local reps NOW to demand that Turzai is not replaced with another speaker who will be a road block for property tax elimination.  

If we allow them to vote in another enemy of our cause, they will continue their same excuses.  We need to make it clear that THEY will be held accountable for their vote, and we will accept no excuses.  

Tell them we expect them to not accept any "deals" or "promises" of future consideration on our cause in return for their vote.  We've been down that road before.  We're not falling for that, nor will we accept that as an excuse for voting for anyone who has a clear track record of being opposed to elimination.  

Tell your reps they need to judge any potential candidates on their past record, not some false future promise.

This is of utmost importance, and the future of our cause depends on it.

PLA President,
Ron Boltz
