Co- sponsor Memo


MEMORANDUM

December 29, 2014 03:28 PM

From:
Representative Martin Causer

To:
All House members

Subject:
Co-Sponsorship of Legislation – Former HB 2112



In the near future I intend to reintroduce legislation, which will amend the Forest Reserves Municipal Relief Law.

The legislation would increase the payment in lieu of taxes paid to local municipalities, school districts and counties that host state land under the control of DCNR and the PA Game Commission.

Under current law the payment in lieu of taxes is $3.60 per acre divided equally between the three taxing bodies. Under my proposal the payment would be increased to $6 per acre and still be divided equally among the host municipalities.

This legislation is important for areas of the commonwealth that have large tracts of state owned land that are exempt from taxation and therefore have a significantly limited tax base.

I would welcome your co-sponsorship of this legislation.
