Grove bill would remove sales tax on some Christmas trees

Rep. Seth Grove (R-York) announced this week his intention to reintroduce a proposal from last session that would exempt the sale of Christmas trees sold by tree farms from the Pennsylvania sales tax.

 

Titling the bill “Don’t be a Scrooge”—after the Christmas curmudgeon in Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol—Rep. Grove noted Christmas trees sold by tree farms are one of the few agricultural products subject to the sales tax.

Revenue discussions enter “make-or-break” period after five party meeting

A mid-afternoon meeting at the Governor’s Residence between leaders from the four legislative caucuses and Gov. Tom Wolf had legislative leaders returning to the Capitol with a renewed desire to try and finalize a revenue package to send to the governor that would close out the FY 2016-2017 budget.

 

That budget, unbalanced as it currently is, will become law at the turn to Tuesday after Gov. Wolf announced Sunday he would let it lapse into law without his signature.

House Republican cadre calls for more transparency, fiscal responsibility in budget process

House Republican cadre calls for more transparency, fiscal responsibility in budget process

Saying they are hoping to “blow up the politics of old,” where a minority of Republicans joined with Democrats to pass major policy initiatives, even budgets, a group of some of the most conservative members of the House Republican caucus held a news conference Monday to call for more transparency within their caucus on the status of budget negotiations and for a more fiscally responsible budget than what is rumored to be in the works.

 

“The way that they’re trying to cobble this budget deal together, so that the governor can spend more than we’re taking in, is a violation of the values and principles so many of us have run on as Republicans and so many people have entrusted us to do once we get to Harrisburg,” said Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (R-Butler).
