Township Officials Push Federal Priorities During Congressional Meetings
Township supervisors from Pennsylvania and local government officials from around the country traveled to Washington D.C., on May 7 and 8 to participate in the National Association of Towns and Townships Annual Legislative Fly-In.
Participants spent a day on Capitol Hill meeting with members of Congress to discuss NATaT's federal priorities, which include:
- transportation reauthorization,
- the clean water act,
- comprehensive tax reform,
- tax incentives for volunteer first responders, and
- online sales tax collection legislation.
Meetings with members of the Pennsylvania Congressional delegation were very successful, and PSATS will continue to work with them to accomplish these priorities.
PSATS would also like to extend a big thank you to everyone who took the time to travel to Washington this week to ensure that the voice of local government is heard.
