State Senator Lisa Baker Votes “No” On Latest State Budget Plan

Harrisburg – Senator Lisa Baker issued the following statement regarding today’s Senate vote on the latest state budget plan:

“I understand and respect the extreme urgency behind agreeing on a final state budget, and acknowledge the concerted efforts leaders have been making toward finding accord.  But on today’s budget vote, I simply could not support so much new spending when the revenue measures to pay for it are still under discussion.  Several of the potential tax sources speculated recently are ones that would not be popular or productive in my district.  It is unlikely this will be the last budget vote, so I am hopeful the next plan will fill in the missing details and allow us to better determine its impact.”
