Of Black Pitt Educator PITTSBURGH UPI A leading black Pittsburgh educator says California voters were seeking a simplistic answer to complex problems when they passed Proposition 13 in their recent primary and will be ap palled to see its results Dr David E Epperson dean of the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Social Work said police and fire protection education and other public services in California will be drastically cut back under the property taxrollback measure The whole thrust of Proposition 13 gets out of hand Epperson said adding that fallout from the measure will affect those who have the least defense including the elderly children and welfare recipients Epperson said he had spoken recently with ad ministrators at the University of California in Sacramento and said they told him its almost chaos there already due to cutbacks of staff and services There is a legitimate concern of Democrats Republicans blacks whites uppermiddleand lower income people that the property tax system has been inequitable Epperson said I would like to move from high property taxes to an equitable income tax as a source for government revenue in Pennsylvania Epperson said a more equitable income tax system would be placed on the basis of earning power and would include elimination of loopholes and tax writeoffs for upperincome taxpayers Whom he termed most able to find ways not to give back to the government He said a tightening of tax loopholes would eliminate a major source of irritation to middleincome taxpayers who pay a higher percentage of taxes than do those in up perincome brackets Even though the Penn sylvania constitution prohibits citizens groups from placing similar proposals on the ballot through the initiative system Epperson predicted a widespread taxpayers revolt movement could spur legislators to place a similar measure on the Pennsylvania ballot There is a large network of people in Pennsylvania who are concerned and there are legislators who will act on it he said Severe Storms through Tuesday with con tinuing scattered thun dershowers across the stale today and in eastern sections on Tuesday mainly in the afternoon and evening hours
