Rep. Kate Klunk Survey

Residents of the 169th Legislative District, I want to hear from you! I want to learn what state-related issues impact you the most and what you want to see changed in our state. If you live in the 169th Legislative District, I ask that you take a few minutes to fill out this survey. Your input will help guide me as your representative.

Thank you for taking the time to share your opinions with me. I enjoy hearing your feedback concerning current issues that are affecting the Commonwealth and our community. If my office, or I, can be of additional assistance to you, please contact us at 717-630-8942.

1. Gov. Tom Wolf unveiled another plan to impose an additional tax on gas companies drilling in Pennsylvania. These companies currently pay a tax through the impact fee. Gov. Wolf’s plan would use the additional tax revenue to fund infrastructure projects selected by agencies under his jurisdiction. Are you in favor of levying an additional tax on gas companies? *

2. There is a push to increase the minimum wage to above $10 an hour, which would include shifting some workers, such as waitresses and waiters who rely on tips for the majority of their earnings, to the minimum wage. Are you in favor of increasing the minimum wage to above $10 an hour? *

3. Several bills have been introduced this session to tackle school property taxes. Any type of reform would be a tax shift, meaning other taxes would increase to cover the cost of eliminating school property taxes. Do you support property tax reform that would shift property tax authority to the state, or keep it in local control? *

4. One of the reform plans to eliminate or reduce property tax would be to impose income taxes on retirement income (pensions, 401-k, IRAs), not including Social Security income. Would you support this initiative? *

5. Do you have any additional comments you’d like to make? *
