House of Representatives
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session


Posted: March 26, 2013 03:15 PM
From: Representative Stan Saylor
To: All House members
Subject: School District Budget Revision
Every year our local school districts pass a timely budget in accordance with the law only to later revisit their budget after the General Assembly passes the state budget. Like clockwork, every year the Legislature adds a section to the Pennsylvania Public School Code giving school districts the authority to revise their budget to reflect the appropriations enacted by the state budget.

To address this, I will be introducing legislation establishing a permanent budget revival period for school districts to reflect the state’s current fiscal year appropriations. As soon as the state budget is enacted, school districts will be given a 30-day time period to revive their budgets to reflect the appropriations enacted by the state budget. This will remove the redundancy of placing a reopener clause for each fiscal year in the Pennsylvania Public School Code and will allow more consistency for the school districts when enacting and reopening their annual budget.

I hope you will consider joining me in support of this important legislation.
