Rep. Culver Comments on Passage of a Supplemental Funding Bill to Complete the 2015-16 State Budget

Mar. 17, 2016  Download

Lawmakers took action Wednesday in the state capitol to provide essential funding for the remainder of the 2015/2016 state budget. The current year’s fiscal plan remains unresolved due to the Governor’s line-item vetoes of more than $6 billion for basic and higher education, as well as corrections and agriculture programs. The supplemental budget bill approved by the House and Senate would address the funding holes created by the Governor’s vetoes and restore state funding. The legislation provides for a 200 million dollar increase for basic education lines, a 5 percent increase for higher education, and ensures that no schools will be forced to close in the Commonwealth. Rep. Lynda Schlegel Culver (R-Northumberland & Snyder) said her district had suffered from the negative effects the governor’s vetoes and it is time to complete this year’s budget and restore funding.
