$13,000 fees for new homes?

The Patriot News reports on a PA House committee hearing on charging impact fees on new homes - of $13,000 per home - in growing areas. Why would we even consider a proposal that raises the cost of building a home, discourages growth, and makes Pennsylvania even less attractive for new residents? The old standard "more money for government" philosophy.

Read Grant Gulibon's commentary on why impact fees are no solution at all.
