Stephens Calls Corbett Budget ‘Courageous’

Rep. Todd Stephens (R-Montgomery) praised Gov. Corbett’s budget for facing economic reality.  

“Gov. Corbett has done a courageous job in presenting his budget proposal,” Stephens said.  “Like many families, our Commonwealth must face economic reality.  There are no easy answers.  It’s now up to the legislature to face these tough issues head-on and pass an honest budget on time. The people of Pennsylvania expect no less from us.”  

Corbett presented his $27.34 billion spending plan to the legislature on Tuesday.  Faced with a massive budget deficit, Corbett proposed a 3.1 percent cut in General Fund spending . Corbett balances his budget without resorting to massive tax hikes. 

The House will begin hearings on the budget next week.
