Millard Praises Final Passage of Responsible Budget to End the Impasse
12/23/2015
HARRISBURG – This evening, the Senate voted in favor of a spending plan, previously approved by the House, that protects taxpayers, while making historic investments in education. Rep. David Millard (R-Berwick) issued the following statement after the vote, which should bring an end to the state’s budget impasse:

“This evening the Senate acted in a bi-partisan fashion to join the House in bringing an end to the state’s budget impasse. The budget, House Bill 1460, is a $30.3 billion, full-year budget that can be signed by the governor today.

“The plan is a balanced, responsible budget that funds core government responsibilities and makes historic investments in education, including more than $400 million in additional funding for preK-12 education and an increase of approximately $80 million for higher education.

I urge Gov. Wolf to sign this budget and end the impasse. The time is now to put politics aside and get the needed funding out of Harrisburg and back to the communities where it belongs. The agencies and schools that serve our communities need funding now.”
