19 districts call for repeal of Act 1

The momentum is growing. So far, 19 Pennsylvania school districts have passed resolutions calling for the Legislature to repeal Act 1, also known as the great tax relief hoax of 2006.

The latest school districts to join the anti-Act 1 movement are Armstrong School District and Wilson School District, according to David Baldinger of the Pennsylvania Taxpayers Cyber Coalition.

The PTCC is asking voters to vote NO on the Act 1 referendums on the May 15 primary election ballots, while also asking the Legislature to repeal the law.

For more information about Act 1 and a copy of the resolution, go to the PTCC Web site at
