Property tax reform passes hurdle in state Senate

Parkesburg Gazette

hb_sb_76_full_logoLegislation to eliminate property taxes cleared a key hurdle on Tuesday.

But it looks like time is going to run out before it reaches the finish line.

The bill, which passed out of the Senate Finance Committee in a 6-5 vote, would replace property taxes with higher state sales and income taxes.

Lancaster County Republican Sen. Mike Brubaker, chair of the committee, supported the legislation and urged his colleagues to back the proposal as well.

“Thousands of hours have been spent on this legislation. It’s time that this bill get an up or down vote,” he said during the committee meeting at the Capitol Tuesday morning.
