Republican gubernatorial candidate Mike Fisher probably won't find many Pennsylvanians who disagree with his view that funding the state's education system depends too much on property taxes. But there'll be plenty of disagreement on what should replace it.
On Tuesday, Fisher said his first step as governor would be to call a special session and solve the problem. How he didn't say, but he did criticize previous governors for talking about the problem, but not finding a solution to it.
One option on the table includes a plan by state Sen. James J. Rhoades, who would roll back property taxes by an average of 68.7 percent which increasing the income tax from 2.8 percent to 4.8 percent.
Another includes raising the state's sales tax, or giving more options to local jurisdictions to fund schools in ways that local voters would decide.
