Tell the Governor We Can Afford to Do Better
With less than two weeks to go until the budget deadline, there is still no agreement between legislative leaders and Governor Tom Corbett.
Lawmakers support restoring some of the worst cuts to early childhood education, aid to people with disabilities, state universities, environmental protection, and help for victims of domestic violence. Governor Corbett, however, is pushing for more than $300 million in cuts to the House-Senate budget plan.
There’s no reason for this. Last week, the Independent Fiscal Office reported that healthy revenue growth means the state will have $626 million more to spend in the new budget than initially expected.
Contact Governor Tom Corbett to tell him we can afford to do better:
1. Call Governor Corbett at (717) 787-2500 and say: "I am calling to urge the governor to support the Legislature's $27.7 billion budget proposal. We can afford to support our children and youth, people with disabilities, victims of domestic violence, and hardworking Pennsylvanians who lost their jobs in the recession. We must continue to invest in communities and the infrastructure that keeps our economy growing."
2. Fill out the form below to send the Governor an email message.
