Gov. Tom Wolf proposed more than $4 billion in taxes on income, sales and natural gas drilling to support new spending on schools and to cut property taxes as part of an effort to overhaul the way public education is funded. Included in his proposal is a flat tax increase on income from 3.07 percent to 3.7 percent.
