HARRISBURG – After the governor today in Harrisburg delivered to the Legislature his annual budget proposal, which called for a 46% increase in the state income tax, state Rep. Mark Gillen (R-Berks/Lancaster) offered the following statement:

“I am pleased to see in the governor’s proposal that he and I share a similar passion for supporting early childhood education and community colleges. Those are two areas where I see an opportunity for identifying common ground and working together.

“I find significant flaws in the governor’s call for a 46% hike in the state income tax. Many small businesses and working Pennsylvanians already are struggling to pay their bills due to the pandemic. A tax hike could push some of those employers out of business and some of those families over the financial cliff.”
