Issues of a grand scale will always be of interest too, as they affect how we live and vote.
If I were to wait for an answer in my comments section I would never make the change, so I am making an executive decision. I am going to start wide and bring it in slowly so as not to freak out friends and neighbors.
Wow, so I headed over to the Daily Local News to look for something to write about and found a little blog area. I wonder if I should do that instead.
Then, I think to myself that maybe I am a little ADD 'cause I can't figure out how exactly to go about this; I also won't fail if I don't start, right? Back to the lackofnews.
The Avon Grove Charter School has been saddled with a burden of many thousand dollars following Gov. Ed Rendell's veto of House Bill 101.
The bill, which according to school chief Kevin Brady was unanimously approved by the state Senate and by all but 14 members of the state House, would have exempted charter schools and their foundations from real estate taxes.
There we go, and my font changed, sorry about that, still learning the new blog-spot stuff, I'll soon go back to writing in MS Word. I wonder why Mr. Rendell vetoed that bill, on his way out. The people wanted it, the politicians wanted it, and still he vetoed it. Let's look a little deeper, shall we?
And here it is: Charters that own their own buildings already are property tax-exempt
It is the 'foundations' that lobbied for the change, for the tax break, and maybe, just maybe, some of those foundations could use that break, but the law did not require the tax break to be passed along to a charter school that rented a building that the charter foundation owned. It seems that "fast" Eddie Rendell noticed a scam when he saw it! Good for him, and good for us.
