When it comes to raising money for our schools in Harrisburg, most of what we hear about is giving Philadelphia the right to levy more taxes its working class citizens. Meanwhile corporations, both state wide and in Philadelphia, keep reaping in subsidies. But State Senator Vincent Hughes has a better idea. Like PCAPS, he is calling for taxing Marcellus Shale and raising money for the schools. Let’s get behind this!
WHAT; FUND OUR SCHOOLS/TAX MARCELLUS SHALE RALLY
WHEN: Thursday, MARCH 27 @ 4 PM
WHERE: OUTSIDE 440 N. BROAD STREET (rain location, SDP auditorium)
WHO : STATE SENATOR VINCENT HUGHES and ALL CONCERNED CITIZENS
WHY: Our schools have been devastated by nearly $1 billion in cuts in Gov. Tom Corbett’s budgets. To repair that damage, State Senator Vincent Hughes is sponsoring a bill that will immediately generate $375 million new dollars for education across Pennsylvania. The bill will tax the extraction of Marcellus Shale natural gas and generate more than $1 billion NEW DOLLARS for education by 2020.
