Chairman Adolph Comments on Governor Corbett’s Budget Proposal
HARRISBURG – Gov. Tom Corbett addressed a joint session of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and Senate Tuesday to give his annual budget address. His address laid out a budget proposal that spends $28.4 billion, which is a 2.4 percent increase from the current fiscal year.

“This proposal represents the start of the annual process of crafting a budget that can gain the support necessary for final passage. I like where Governor Corbett is starting the negations for this budget, and it’s clear that we have the ability to invest in key areas of the budget in a sustainable way as a result of the prudent fiscal decisions made by the General Assembly and the governor over the past two budgets.

“I am glad to see the governor’s support for Pre K-12 education, $20 million to reduce the waiting list for intellectual disabilities services, and no decreases in higher education funding. And while the plan to privatize the LCB is an aside to the budget, I am supportive of the state getting out of the liquor business and of the governor’s plan to designate the $1 billion from the sale of licenses to education. I look forward to learning more about the plan as the details continue to be discussed,” Adolph said.
