Rep. Grove Comments on Revenue-Generating Tax Cut Plan

Jun. 20, 2017  Download

A plan to bring in additional revenues for Pennsylvania state government by using targeted tax cuts to spur business growth was unveiled Tuesday in Harrisburg. The state’s current Corporate Net Income Tax (CNI) rate of 9.99 percent is one of the highest in the nation and is widely seen as a barrier to economic growth. Lawmakers said House Bill 1584 would make Pennsylvania more economically competitive by cutting the CNI rate, mirroring the 1981 Kemp-Roth federal law that generated a historic increase in business activity and tax revenues. Rep. Seth Grove (R-York) commented on the proposed legislation.

Rep. Seth Grove (R-York) supported the legislation and said this is a big step toward helping the thousands of Pennsylvania citizens suffering from this disease.
