LWV Opposes SB 909 Requiring Voter Referendum for All Tax Increases

The Pennsylvania League of Women Voters believes all schools must be given the opportunity to achieve with adequate and realistic funding based on the needs of their community.  We oppose legislation such as Senate Bill 909, which will place school districts in the difficult position of having to make cuts to educational programs and services to pay for mandated costs beyond their control.

In September,  SB 909 passed the Senate Finance Committee and was re-referred to Senate Appropriations Committee.  For talking points on SB 909, see letter from PA LWV President Susan Carty sent to Governor Wolf and all legislators.
