1995 Pontiac Bonneville Question: parking brake stuck

The step on to engage, step on to release style brake has been giving trouble lately. It works fine engaging but does not release without a struggle. Depressing the pedal ever and ever harder. Last night I just could not get it to release. The tow truck driver said he could see the emergency release tab but couldn't get it to let go. What can I do? -
