HARRISBURG – Reps. Rosemary Brown (R-Monroe/Pike) and Jack Rader (R-Monroe) shared their thoughts on Gov. Tom Wolf’s recent budget address:

“There were a lot of overlapping ideas in Gov. Wolf’s budget address, including workforce development, career and technical education and quality education, are areas of focus that our caucus agrees with and will work together with the governor to address,” said Brown. “I believe these key ideas are important to all Pennsylvanians. As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, my colleagues and I will review the details of each initiative within each agency and ensure that the taxpayers’ money is being used appropriately.”

Rader added, “I’m pleased the governor is not asking for any new or increased broad-based taxes. I think there are areas where we’ll be able to find some common ground on issues like fighting the opioid epidemic and investing in workforce training. The governor’s overall spending proposal is a bit aggressive, so we will look for ways to identify savings to drive down the cost for taxpayers.”
