Mar. 11, 2016  Download

House Republican lawmakers from the Pittsburgh area are questioning the rationale behind Gov. Tom Wolf’s demand for massive tax increases, including a call for a retroactive Personal Income Tax hike as part of his annual budget address. The group of legislators was joined by a number of small businessmen who stood in opposition to Gov. Wolf’s job-crushing proposals. House Republicans also called on Wolf to release education funds to prevent the closure of public schools in the state. Wolf cut $3 billion in basic education funding as part of his partial veto of the House-passed budget. The lawmakers said the governor should seek to close the budget deficit by reducing spending, instead of raising taxes.

Gabler Opposes Gov. Wolf’s Tax Increase Proposals

Mar. 10, 2016  Download

House Republican lawmakers from northern Pennsylvania are speaking out in opposition to Gov. Tom Wolf’s demand for massive tax increases, including an increase to the Personal Income Tax as part of his annual budget proposal. That 11 percent tax increase would be retroactive to Jan. 1, 2016 and amount to an annual tax hike of $2.7 billion. Speaking at a small business in Clearfield County on Thursday, legislators said Wolf’s proposal for extensive tax hikes is being opposed by a large majority of Pennsylvanians – working families, senior citizens and small business owners. House Republicans also called on Wolf to release education funds to prevent the closure of public schools in the state. Wolf cut $3 billion in basic education funding as part of his partial veto of the House-passed budget. The lawmakers said the governor should work with the Legislature to develop solutions that keep the state operating without resorting to broad-based tax increases.
