PA Legislature is Proposing to Tap into Sales Tax Revenue to Boost Failing Game Fund

By David Kveragas of Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania

PA House Bill HB 1676 mandates that a portion of the Revenue brought in by the Pennsylvania Sales and Use Tax be given to the Pennsylvania Game Fund and another portion to the Pennsylvania Fish Fund.

Under this proposal the Game fund would receive an annual infusion of $10 million from the revenue brought in by the Pennsylvania Sales and Use Tax. The Fish Fund would receive an additional $5 million. Using general funds to support this failing activity sets a very dangerous precedent for supporting hunting — which is not able to sustain itself from license sales — its traditional source of funding.
