Senator Baker Reacts to Governor’s Budget

Harrisburg – Senator Lisa Baker had the following reaction to Governor Tom Corbett’s proposed budget:

“Governor Corbett has outlined a state budget consistent with the pledges he made to reject tax increases and pursue spending cuts. I am not surprised that he is committed to reversing the spending spiral of the past eight years.”

“The process continues with Appropriations Committee hearings throughout the month, where we will review the entire range of state responsibilities to see how best to fund our highest-priority programs and services within today’s existing revenue constraints.”
