Mackenzie Issues Statement on Governor’s Budget Proposal

 

HARRISBURG – Following the governor’s budget address this morning, state Rep. Ryan Mackenzie (R-Lehigh/Berks) issued a statement on the $34 billion spending plan:

 

“As is typically the case, there were both positives and negatives that struck me during the governor’s address today. As someone who has been a long-time proponent of workforce development, I was glad to hear him highlight that as an area of focus. The state, as a whole, will benefit from preparing today’s job seekers with the skills they need to land family-sustaining jobs.

 

“Perhaps the part of the governor’s speech that gained the most applause was when he announced he was not seeking any broad-based taxes. This is good news; however, I question how he plans to pay for his aggressive budget plan. One-time funding and money transfers are not sustainable, nor are they a wise approach to balancing the budget. We need to be fiscally responsible when determining our spending needs and priorities and how we plan to afford them.

 

“As always, this is only the beginning of the budget process, and in the coming weeks the House will dive deeper into the governor’s proposal and unveil our own vision for the state budget. I look forward to working with the governor and our counterparts in the Senate to craft a budget we can all agree to.”
