|Subject:||LEGISLATION - REVERSE SUPPLEMENTAL TO HOUSE BILL 218|
|Pennsylvania faces a number of serious fiscal challenges. Politicians will have to take concrete steps to confront these challenges an on some levels, sacrifice will be required. Spending and budgetary concerns can be met both by increasing revenue and decreasing spending. In the very near future I intend to introduce legislation as a reverse supplemental for the budget appropriation that was just completed for fiscal year 2017-2018.
This legislation will direct 10% reduction in the General Government Operations funding, which is to include the Executive Branch, the Attorney General’s office, the Auditor General's office as well as the Legislature ~ both House and Senate, and would take affect retroactively to July 1, 2017.
In light of the current fiscal crisis, this legislation is intended to send a strong message that spending reductions are appropriate and that the executive branch and the legislature must lead the way towards fiscal responsibility.
Please join with me in cosponsoring this legislation.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Julianne Naccarato in my Capitol office via email@example.com or 717.783.1815.
Introduced as HB1691
