Third and State This Week: Zombies, Millionaire Taxes and Gas Drillers

This week, we blogged about New Jersey’s millionaire tax, taxes and Marcellus Shale drillers, zombies and much more.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT:

  • On state budget and taxes, Steve Herzenberg explains that a millionaire tax didn’t chase the rich out of New Jersey. In light of that, Steve writes, Pennsylvania should consider enacting a higher tax rate on unearned income, which would mostly impact top earners in Pennsylvania. Kate Atkins, meanwhile, posts a short video of a Berks County rally for a better state budget.
  • On the Marcellus Shale, Sharon Ward invites each natural gas drilling company in Pennsylvania to release details on the state and local business taxes it pays. And Chris Lilienthal shares concerns about Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati’s proposed local impact fee on Marcellus Shale drillers.
  • Finally, Mark Price fights zombies who believe that only the rich pay taxes.
