Just Harvest is organizing a demonstration outside the headquarters of PPG Industries in Pittsburgh to voice their outrage that some lawmakers are proposing to cut corporate taxes for a select group of large multi-state companies.

The proposal, which is under consideration by state budget negotiators, would cost $100 million in lost revenue at a time when the state is already facing a multi-billion-dollar budget shortfall.

PPG, a Pittsburgh-based manufacturing giant with facilities and affiliates in more than 60 countries around the world, is one of the businesses strongly lobbying Harrisburg for the tax break.


WHAT: Demonstration protesting special interest tax breaks being considered by budget negotiators

WHEN: Noon on Wednesday, August 19, 2009

WHERE: Outside PPG Headquarters, 4th and Market Streets, Pittsburgh
