Jesse J. White, duly-elected State Representative for the 46
Legislative District ofPennsylvania, respectfully submits this brief as amicus curiae to urge the Court toorder a stay in the underlying action in regards to a reassessment of real estate inWashington County, Pennsylvania. This minimal and reasonable stay would allow thePennsylvania Legislature adequate time to continue and complete its work on thisissue and provide more comprehensive and cohesive guidelines for such areassessment.The result would be a comprehensive reassessment that ensures compliance with theUniformity Clause of the Pennsylvania Constitution while protecting the interests of thetaxpayers of Washington County. Failure to grant the stay and allow the forcedreassessment under the current, fundamentally flawed system would cause irreparablefinancial harm to taxpayers while simultaneously crippling business growth andeconomic development with no recognizable benefit to the public or the interests of justice.
