“I'm happy the House was able to assist the Newfound area school district and fix an unintended consequence of legislation this House passed last session. The school district did the right thing when they offset their tax rate when they found a surplus. Now, the House has done the right thing to pass this bill and untie the hands of the district allowing them to calculate tax rate taking into account their unique situation.”
