Notes of Decisions

   The Commonwealth’s pervasive regulation of the nursing home industry does not preempt a local school district from levying and collecting business privilege taxes from a private, for-profit nursing home. Rose View Manor, Inc. v. Williamsport, 630 A.2d 474 (Pa. Cmwlth. 1993); appeal denied 641 A.2d 591 (Pa. 1994).
