Tell PA State Government: Here's Your June 2018 To Do List
There seems to be an overall optimism among state legislators that the Pennsylvania budget will pass on time given the positive revenue numbers in the state, a straight-forward budget proposal by the governor, and no haunting budget deficit to overcome like in years past. That said, the details of what said budget will look like have not been shared.
To help legislators stay focused on what is most important to Pennsylvanians throughout the Commonwealth, we have put together a list of four to-dos:
- Increase state funding for education at all levels.
- Pass a severance tax.
- Increase the minimum wage.
- Stop harmful work requirements attached to SNAP and Medicaid.
It's time for our state legislators to start putting their constituents first. This means investing in our communities, making corporations and oil and gas companies pay their fair share, raising wages for working Pennsylvanians and making sure families have access to the healthcare and food assistance they need.
