Renewed Budget Plan Increases Funding for State Education, Includes No New Taxes, Tobash Says
3/16/2016
HARRISBURG – In another attempt to complete Pennsylvania’s state budget, Rep. Mike Tobash (R-Schuylkill/Dauphin) voted in favor of House Bill 1801 on Wednesday. The bill funds items cut by Gov. Tom Wolf as part of his Dec. 29 line-item veto.

“Once again, today we voted to fund our schools, crucial agriculture programs such as Penn State Extension and 4-H programs, specialty care programs and prisons,” Tobash said. “I believe the $6 billion in taxpayer dollars that is being paid to the state treasury needs to be released. There’s no need to senselessly withhold it from schools and other state-supported programs.”

The $30 billion budget is about a 3 percent increase through growth and inflation estimates without implementing broad-based tax increases. It provides an increase of more than $200 million to public schools. It is balanced and it gives the governor yet another chance to finish the job, Tobash said.

For more information about this legislation, or any other state-related issue, contact Tobash’s district office in Schuylkill Haven located at 988 East Main St., by calling 570-385-8235. Information can also be found online at RepTobash.com or Facebook.com/RepTobash.
