Story Pitch: Paying Your Fair Share in Pennsylvania

Currently, Pennsylvania is one of only nine states that does not have some type of tort reform. This puts many small businesses at a disadvantage. Attracting and keeping small businesses in Pennsylvania is critical in tough economic times and the Fair Share Act, introduced in the Pennsylvania house, takes a step in the pro-business direction.

Members of the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants can explain:

- Why the current law puts businesses at a competitive disadvantage with businesses in neighboring states
- What it means to pay your fair share in litigation
- What the issues are and why everyone doesn't think payouts should be fair
- What effect this has on public accounting firms
