HARRISBURG – After the governor on Tuesday in Harrisburg delivered his annual budget address during a joint session of the state Senate and House, Sen. Lynda Schlegel Culver (R-27) released the following statement:
“Many Pennsylvania families right now are dealing with inflation by prioritizing their spending, and that’s something our state government should do as well.
“We have to make sure our spending doesn’t outpace our revenues, because that’s a recipe for a deficit. State government simply cannot spend money faster than Pennsylvania taxpayers can earn it.
“The General Assembly provided record levels of state funding for our schools and students in recent state budgets, and that’s a trend that is likely to continue. We also will look to make targeted investments in programs and opportunities that can improve the health, safety and overall quality of life for our residents.
“We will take the next few weeks to review the governor’s proposal and dig into the details, and then we’ll start working with our colleagues in the House and the administration to craft a final state budget.”
