Gov. Wolf proposes $25 police fee
Gov. Tom Wolf has proposed a $25 per resident fee for municipalities who rely on state police for local law enforcement coverage. It’s estimated the fee would raise $63 million.  More than half of the state’s municipalities — 67 percent — currently utilize either full or part-time state police coverage. Residents in the municipalities who rely on state police currently pay no extra tax or fee for that police protection, with taxpayers throughout Pennsylvania picking up the extra cost. State Rep. Steve Barrar (R-160th) said the proposal has been discussed for years and doubts it would be accepted. “That’s been around since I’ve been in the legislature,” said the 11-term representative. “I don’t see this getting the legs to go through.” Barrar added that approximately 65 percent of the state police budget comes from the gasoline tax. The proposal, if adopted, would allow the Commonwealth to use another source of revenue to fund local coverage by state police and shift gas tax revenue back toward maintaining critical infrastructure, such as roads and bridges.
