Pennsylvania's 267 day budget impasse has finally come to an end…with a taxpayer victory!
The $30 billion budget contains NO tax increases and spends an additional $200 million on education.
For nine months, lawmakers withstood immense pressure to raise taxes. Take a minute to thank your lawmaker for standing firm and recognizing there is no appetite for broad-based tax increases on Pennsylvanians.
CF President and CEO Matt Brouillette cheered:
Today is a victory for taxpayers who will be spared crushing tax hikes, for students and teachers who will get the funding they’ve been pleading for, and for all Pennsylvanians, who now have a budget that spends responsibly.
Attention now turns to Wolf's 2016-17 budget proposal, which calls for the largest spending increase in 25 years.
