Lawmakers Rally Behind PA Chamber’s Top Priorities in New Op-Ed

An op-ed published last week in the Allentown Morning Call endorsed several key tax reforms that top the PA Chamber’s priority list.

The piece, written by state Reps. Zack Mako (R-Lehigh), Robert Leadbeter (R-Columbia), and Tom Jones (R-Lancaster), described testimony delivered during legislative hearings in which various industry representatives urged lawmakers to advance pro-growth proposals, including accelerating the reduction of the Corporate Net Income tax, improving the treatment of Net Operating Losses, and repealing the accelerated sales tax requirement, all of which would go a long way toward improving Pennsylvania’s competitiveness and helping to create family-sustaining jobs.

We applaud these state lawmakers for recognizing the benefits of these pro-growth policies, which have benefited other states’ economies, and for working with the PA Chamber to promote them here in Pennsylvania.  You can read their full op-ed here.


Founded in 1916, the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry is the state's largest broad-based business association, with its membership comprising businesses of all sizes and across all industry sectors. The PA Chamber is The Statewide Voice of BusinessTM.
