Pennsylvania State Senate Passes Two Bills
Two bills in the Pennsylvania state senate will help anyone drowning in repair costs after a flood. The Pennsylvania state senate has unanimously passed two House bills to help residents with flood damage. Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee wrecked havoc last September, leaving flood damage across the state. One of the bills would authorize 150 million dollars in borrowing through bonds to help the storm damaged areas. The other approved bill would permit a county assessment office to decrease, credit or refund up to $30,000 in real estate taxes because of the property value decrease the storms caused.
