PA CARE Members:
IEEE-USA has just posted an informative Action Alert on HB 1920, introduced into the Pennsylvania House of Representatives earlier this year. This bill is an attempt to reform your state's sales tax to provide funds for the state's local primary and secondary schools. One of the consequences of the bill would be the imposition of a 5% sales tax on engineers within Pennsylvania.
IEEE-USA has not taken a position on the bill because we usually do not take positions on state legislation. However, it is going to impact our PA members, so we wanted you to know about it.
IEEE Members who are interested in the bill can access IEEE-USA's Legislative Action Center here: https://www.capitolconnect.com/ieee. Access the site by using your IEEE Web Account login. The Action Alert is titled "PA Tax Reform To Impact Engineers" under "Current Issues."
If you feel IEEE-USA should be more active on this bill, or if you have questions about it, please contact me.

And a lot of politicians are going to give up the raise, or give up the job.
