Senator Mario Scavello held this Telephone Town Hall to discuss important issues affecting the 40th Senate District. Senator Scavello spoke about many issues including the Governor’s stance on increasing taxes, school property tax reform, and tax relief for Pennsylvania seniors. Senator Scavello explained that the Governor is doubling down on his historic tax increase proposals, without achieving significant school property tax reform. 70% of the Governor’s proposed new tax revenue would be used to expand government programs, rather than reduce the burden of school property taxes – Senator Scavello’s top priority. Senator Scavello also addressed issues related to seniors, transportation, and natural gas infrastructure across the Commonwealth.
