The 2018-19 state budget is complete – and with no new taxes or fees, and only a 1.7 percent increase over last year’s budget. But those aren’t the only reasons why I voted in favor of this budget. I voted in support of it because it sets Pennsylvania and its residents up for greater success by putting money away in a Rainy Day Fund for the first time in more than a decade, and investing in areas of the budget like career and technical education and fighting the opioid epidemic to help more Pennsylvanians succeed in life. It also dedicates funding to assist our public schools in having tools available to better ensure student safety and helps our EMS companies and rural hospitals with needed funding to make sure vital health care is available.
