At today’s Capitol news conference, state Sen. Christine Tartaglione joined union leaders and state legislators to unveil the AFL-CIO legislative agenda and discuss how to protect and create jobs in Pennsylvania.

Tartaglione, a member of the UFCW union, said that it is time for the legislature to push back against growing corporate influence and find ways to protect and grow the middle class. She said she introduced legislation in the Senate to close the Delaware Loophole because it is outrageous that the average working family in Pennsylvania pays more in state taxes than corporations doing business in the state.
