Update on Sales Tax Expansion
After nine hours of debate, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives voted yesterday afternoon on the legislation to expand the state sales tax to professional legal services. The vote was 148-47 against the expansion. Ironically, my representative voted in favor of the legislation and I had written to her personally last week, expressing my concerns and objections. My letter was never acknowledged by her. Then, today at lunch, I was approached to sign her campaign petition for reelection! Needless to say, I declined. At this point, I guess all's well that ends well.
