HARRISBURG – Rep. Gary Day (R-Lehigh/Berks) today issued the following statement regarding the governor’s 2019-20 budget proposal, which was unveiled Tuesday to the General Assembly:
“House Republicans have a 10-year record of not increasing income taxes on hard-working taxpayers and working within our means when it comes to the state budget. We have also put record amounts of funding toward education, particularly helping our career and technical centers and giving city families individual choice. We have lead Pennsylvania in the right direction for 10 years, and I intend to continue to advocate for these priorities in this year’s budget process.
“The governor’s plan calls for merging certain budget accounts together, which would give him more flexibility and power over how taxpayer money is spent. It’s important we review these proposals and determine if the mergers would truly help the Commonwealth stay on the right track or if they would give Harrisburg insiders more say than you.”
Wolf proposed a $34.15 billion budget for the 2019-20 fiscal year, which is a $927 million increase over last year’s budget.
