Argall: New State Budget Prioritizes Education Spending, No New Taxes

HARRISBURG – Senator David G. Argall (R-29) voted in favor of Pennsylvania’s 2013-14 state budget, which holds the line on taxes and invests more in local schools. The legislation was approved on Sunday by a bipartisan vote of 33 to 17.

“I’m pleased to see us pass the third-in-a-row on-time state budget that continues to hold the line on state taxes,” Argall said.

Argall notes many of his town hall meetings, office visits, emails and letters to his local offices revolve around a similar message from local residents: Control the growth of government and its regulations.

“This balanced budget holds spending increases to only 2.3 percent,” Argall said. “I’m pleased to see that we can provide increased aid to schools in the 29th Senate District – the most they have ever received from the state government.”

Also included in the budget is an increase for small business development and related efforts to assist private sector job creation.
