Pennsylvanians approve ballot question on property tax cuts

November 07, 2017 - 11:29 pm

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania voters are giving their approval to a constitutional amendment that could eventually lead to property tax cuts.

The measure gives legal authorization for state lawmakers to pass a law to let local governments exempt the full value of homes from taxes.

But legislators would have to figure out how to replace the revenue should they take such a step.

Three hours after the polls closed, results were too close to call in contested judicial races for state Supreme, Superior and Commonwealth courts.

The biggest statewide contest pits Democratic Allegheny County Judge Dwayne Woodruff against Republican Supreme Court Justice Sallie Mundy for a seat on the state's highest court.
