On July 8, Gov. Tom Wolf signed the state budget into law. Total state spending came in at $46.3 billion; that’s even more than he requested back in February.
The budget increased spending by $5 BILLION, a whopping 11% jump over last year!
Year after year, the General Assembly has kept Pennsylvania on an unsustainable spending spree. While taxpayers struggle, representatives and senators give little thought to who will pay the bill.
It’s not often we get to recognize lawmakers for their fiscal responsibility and political courage. Please sign the legislator appreciation petition and let them know the Citizens of Pennsylvania are watching and grateful.
