Now Goes To Senate For Consideration


The state House passed a $28.3 billion budget bill yesterday.  The bill cleared the House by a vote of 108-92.  It increases spending in Pennsylvania by more than $500 million. 


State Representative Dave Reed says that’s a solid first step in the process and he’s encourage by the plan’s increase for basic education funding, which will provide an extra $100 million for Pennsylvania’s schools. 


House Majority Leader Mike Turzai says the House’s budget bill is a spending plan to fits Pennsylvania’s needs but doesn’t increase spending beyond the state government’s needs.


The House’s bill will now head to the Senate for consideration, as both chambers work to complete a budget before a June 30th deadline.  Both must pass the same budget bill before Governor Corbett can sign it into law.
