• Act 1:  Taxpayer Relief Bill

    Governor Rendell Signs Bill
    Governor Rendell signed Special Session Act 1 of 2006 (PDF), the Taxpayer Relief Act, on June 27, 2006.  This law will ease the financial burden of home ownership by providing school districts the means to lower property taxes to homeowners, especially senior citizens, via the funding provided by gaming revenue.  It is anticipated that, ultimately, gaming will generate $1 billion each year for local property tax relief.
