Excellent leadership from our local commissioners. It is about time that this issue be tackled in a conscientious and persistent way. It is time for downstate Pennsylvania to quit looking at us counties up north as a playground and a cash cow for the state treasury.

Companies

Any group of people (business, lawyers, big box stores, etc) with more bribing power then you do to get laws passed or vetoed.

Back in the late 60's, early 70's the state introduced a new tax break for land owners who used their land for agricultural purposes. This was a great idea! (at first). The idea was to preserve open spaces, keeping land open to the public. Farmers were now able to keep the farm instead of having to subdivide to stave off bankruptcy. Clean & Green is an example of how a good idea turned bad once corporate lawyers for the paper companies twisted the well intentioned law into the biggest assault ever perpetrated on tax payers, hunters and freerangers, (people who simply like to walk through the woods). The timber companies got their tax break and immediately posted their land, preventing access by the common taxpayer; and instead leased it to the highest bidder, often for more money than their tax debt. Since that time, hunting became a rich mans sport. If you can't afford to lease lands from the paper companies or other large corporate land holder, you were limited to hunt on state land. If we are subsidizing the taxes for these large acreage landholders, we should have access to the land, as the law intended.
