Wheatley: Tax Credit Bill is a Missed Opportunity

Pa. state Rep. Jake Wheatley, chairman of the House Finance Committee, voted on legislation which would provide a tax credit to teachers and volunteer firefighters who use their own money to purchase supplies. While Wheatley supports this bill, he would have preferred for it to include language that would allow the state to extend this credit to other folks who provide critical services to our communities -- like childcare providers -- often at their own expense.
