HARRISBURG (FEB. 4, 2019) – Leaders of the CLEAR Coalition today issued a blueprint for a strong and growing state economy that will create higher wages, more jobs, and revenue for critical investments in quality K-12 and technical education; affordable access to higher education; and adequate funding for our other core services and programs.
Critical elements of “A Blueprint for Growing Pennsylvania’s Economy” include raising the state’s minimum wage; imposing a statewide shale tax; closing corporate tax loopholes and making our tax system fairer; and eliminating waste and increasing efficiency in state operations. The plan generates an estimated $3.5 billion in new revenue and savings and efficiencies in state government operations.
