(Jul 07, 2022)

HARRISBURG, July 7 – State Rep. Napoleon Nelson, D-Montgomery, released the following statement Thursday regarding the state budget. “I’m grateful my colleagues on both sides of the aisle were able to meet on common ground to get this budget passed. There is a lot to unpack in Senate Bill 1100, including the $850 million more in the budget for K-12 basic education funding, $27 million of which was earmarked for Montgomery County Schools. “The commonwealth’s crucial Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program saw an increase in funding upward of $140 million. This is much-needed funding for individuals on fixed incomes. As it stands today, this funding will provide current participants with another one-time check that is equal to 70% of what they receive in this year’s rebate. “The budget also reduced Pennsylvania’s Corporate Net Income Tax rate while closing a few loopholes, expands incentives for businesses to invest in research and development and biotech. It also increases our funding commitment to entrepreneurship through the Ben Franklin Technology Partners. We even increased the film industry tax credit. “We have increased funding in housing affordability and rehabilitation; school safety, security and mental health; public safety and violence prevention; and so much more. “In total, the budget aims to make a large impact across the commonwealth and right here Read more

CHELTENHAM, April 22 – State Rep. Napoleon Nelson, D-Montgomery, today announced two Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program grants worth $2.5 million have been secured for Beth Sholom Synagogue and Salus University. “I am pleased to see this RACP funding invested into our community,” Nelson said. “The money will be used to help preserve an iconic landmark, the Beth Sholom Synagogue.

The funding will be used to repair and restore the synagogue’s dome. The building was designed by the great American architect Frank Lloyd Wright and is a National Historic Landmark.
