Compromise Saylor property tax reform amendment could be considered by House next week

According to Rep. Stan Saylor (R-York), prime sponsor of the lead property tax reform proposal in the House, his legislation will hopefully be considered by the full House as an amendment to a bill on the House floor sometime next week.

“We have so many moving parts now in trying to get to a compromise with the governor, I think it’s easier to just do it on the floor,” he told The PLS Reporter.

At the end of April, Rep. Saylor’s House Bill 860 was pulled from consideration in the House Finance Committee as the Wolf administration requested more time to work with Rep. Saylor on the bill.

Since that time, Rep. Saylor reported he has met with the Wolf administration a number of times on working toward a compromise proposal.
