The state House has angered West Mifflin officials by approving a bill to permit Kennywood Park to stop paying $1.5 million a year in amusement tax revenue to the borough and school district. House Bill 1082 was approved Tuesday night by a vote of 153-39, with support from state Rep. Marc Gergely, D-White Oak, but opposition from Rep. Ken Ruffing, D-West Mifflin.
