HARRISBURG – Rep. Marcy Toepel (R-Montgomery) today issued the following statement in reaction to the governor’s $36 billion budget proposal for the state:
“Once again, the governor is seeking to put the state at financial risk by proposing more spending, more taxes and more debt. Not only that, but he continues to reference idealistic plans with little to no supporting details.
“We need to seek ways to reduce spending and focus resources on proven programs and services that benefit Pennsylvanians.
“I simply cannot support a plan that overspends so dramatically and would leave future generations with a mountain of debt.
“I look forward to coming together in the next few months and crafting a budget that is more responsible to our taxpayers.”
