High tunnels at FairviewHARRISBURG - Senate Bill 638, which would exempt high tunnels or hoop houses from county or other local real estate taxes, passed the Senate April 30 with no dissenting votes, 49-0. The bill now moves to the House for consideration by that chamber.

The bill was introduced by Senator Elder Vogel, the chairman of the Senate Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee at the urging of PLNA and other agriculture groups. Only two counties in Pennsylvania are currently attempting to tax high tunnels, so the measure won't have an impact on the current tax bases of counties. The bill is needed more to clarify existing law and assure that high tunnels remain exempt from taxation.

For more information on the bill, see past PLNA e-News articles by searching "high tunnels."
