Rep. Rader Comments on House Passage of 2015-16 Supplemental Budget Funding - 3/16/2016
Lawmakers took action Wednesday in the state capitol to provide essential funding for the remainder of the 2015/2016 state budget. The current year’s fiscal plan remains unresolved due to the Governor’s line-item vetoes of more than $6 billion for basic and higher education, as well as money for the Department of Corrections and agriculture programs. The House and Senate put forth the supplemental budget legislation to address funding holes created by the Governor’s vetoes and restore state funding for these programs. The funding bill approved today provides for a 200 million dollar increase for basic education, a 5 percent increase for higher education, and ensures that no schools will close in the Commonwealth. Rep. Jack Rader (R-Monroe) said it is well past time to complete the state budget and hopes the governor will sign the bill so the General Assembly can get to work on next year’s spending plan.
Rep. Rader Comments on Defeat of the Governor’s Tax Increase Plan - 10/7/2015
The Pennsylvania House voted to defeat the Governor’s tax increase proposal Wednesday in Harrisburg. The latest version of the tax legislation would have increased the personal income taxes by 16 percent, from 3.07 percent to 3.57 percent, and would have levied one of the highest tax rates on the production of natural gas in the nation. House Republicans overwhelmingly voted against the Governor’s tax plan and called for action on a state budget that will balance without increasing the burden on hard-working Pennsylvanians. Rep. Jack Rader (R-Monroe) offered the following comments following the vote on the bill.
