Tax Amnesty Nets State $114 Million … Pennsylvania’s latest Tax Amnesty Program brought in $114.5 million, surpassing the $100 million net revenue previously estimated. The Tax Amnesty Program waived all penalties and half of the interest for eligible individuals or businesses that applied to the program and paid delinquent state taxes between April 21 and June 19, 2017. Taxpayers who were eligible but didn’t participate in the program will now be assessed a 5 percent penalty. Tax amnesty is not a forgiveness of debt but a reduction in fines to encourage payment. Anyone who took advantage of this program will not be eligible to do so again should the Commonwealth enact a subsequent amnesty program. The proceeds generated will apply toward the 2016-17 fiscal year, which ended June 30.

Turn Around, Don’t Drown … With summer weather leading to increased storms, heavy rains and flash flooding, residents are reminded of a 2012 law that encourages people to turn around, don’t drown. Under the law, motorists who ignore temporary police barricades and drive through flooded areas during and after storms could face fines. Specifically, anyone who requires rescue, towing or medical care after ignoring a barricade or warning sign can be fined $250 to $500 and have points assessed to their driving record. They may also be forced to pay restitution for the cost of their rescue. The law is designed to discourage motorists from driving around road-closed signs and putting themselves, as well as emergency responders, in danger. As little as six inches of moving water can knock a person down and one foot of water can sweep a vehicle away. More information about flood safety is available here.

DEP Accepting Applications for Small Business Advantage Grants … The Department of Environmental Protection is inviting manufacturers, retailers, service providers, agricultural businesses and other small businesses to apply for a total of $1 million in Small Business Advantage Grants to finance pollution prevention and energy-efficiency projects. The program operates on a first-come, first-served basis that provides up to 50 percent reimbursement matching grants, up to a maximum of $7,000 to $9,500, depending on the project. Eligible projects must save the small business a minimum of $500 and at least 25 percent annually in energy consumption or pollution-related expenses. The grant program runs from July 25, 2017, through June 30, 2018, or until funds are exhausted. For the first time, applications must be submitted online at esa.dced.state.pa.us/Login.aspx. More information is available here.

• During the weekend prior to the Fourth of July, I attended the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra’s concert at Negley Park in Lemoyne. The orchestra performs at a variety of locations in the Harrisburg area in the days around the Fourth of July. I hope everyone took the opportunity to spend time with family and friends during the holiday and to thank our current military and veterans for protecting our freedom.
• In late June, I joined some of my colleagues in providing a legislative update to members of the Pennsylvania Manufacturers’ Association. A robust discussion was held on a number of different topics. The manufacturing sector is very important to our state’s economy.
• Capital Joe Coffee in Mechanicsburg recently held its grand opening. The shop serves not only coffee, but also tasty baked goods and other beverages. Ryan Stevens from my district office was on hand for the event with members of the Mechanicsburg Chamber of Commerce.
• Jakeb Flowers of Lower Allen Township recently held his Eagle Scout Court of Honor. He is a member of Troop 312 of Lewisberry and the son of Steven and Jennifer Flowers. For his Eagle project, he designed and built a custom picnic table for Lewisberry United Methodist Church. Congratulations, Jakeb!
