Know more in 30 seconds - Act 1

April 06, 2007

The issue: Pennsylvania's Act 1 of 2006 places the first-ever caps on school districts' abilities to raise property taxes.

What happened: School boards have approved referendum questions to appear on ballots in the May 15 primary election.

What's next: All Franklin County, Pa., voters will be asked whether they favor raising the earned income tax in exchange for a property tax reduction. The proposed earned income tax increases range from six-tenths of a percent in the Greencastle-Antrim School District to eight-tenths of a percent in the Fannett-Metal and Tuscarora school districts.
