Supreme Court Upholds Legislative Redistricting Plan

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Wednesday voted unanimously to uphold new state legislative district maps that will be in place for the 2014 elections. The maps were created by the five-member Legislative Reapportionment Commission based on the results of the 2010 U.S. Census. Under the plan, the 67th Legislative District I represent is redrawn to include all of McKean and Cameron counties, and all but two municipalities in Potter County. Galeton Borough and Pike Township in Potter County will move into the 68th Legislative District served by Rep. Matt Baker. Please note that these changes will not be in effect until Dec. 1, 2014.

Tax Reform Measure Closes Delaware Loophole, Makes PA More Competitive

A bill to make comprehensive reforms to the state’s business tax system has earned House approval. These changes are important to Pennsylvania’s economic recovery and our effort to create a climate that encourages job creation and retention.

At nearly 10 percent, the Commonwealth’s effective tax rate on large job creators is the worst in the nation. An employer looking to start a new business, or relocate an existing one, is less likely to come here because they can do business cheaper elsewhere. That has to change.

House Bill 440 aims to do that by lowering the Corporate Net Income Tax and uncapping the Net Operating Loss deductions businesses may take. Further, to ensure a level playing field for employers, the bill closes the Delaware Loophole that some companies have used to avoid paying their fair share.

The bill is now awaiting action in the Senate.  
New License Plates Available for Paratroopers, World War II Merchant Mariners

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is now offering license plates for members and veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces who have served with a U.S. Military Airborne Unit or as a World War II Merchant Mariner.

The new license plates for members of a U.S. Military Airborne Unit feature images of jump and glider wings, and the plates for Merchant Mariners features an image of the Merchant Marine emblem.
