Flynn: Time to start serious work on 2016-17 budget

(Mar 23, 2016)

HARRISBURG, March 23 – State Rep. Marty Flynn, D-Lackawanna, issued the following statement regarding the governor's announcement that he would allow the state budget to become law without his signature: "I agree with Governor Wolf for recognizing that it was time to end the battle over the 2015-16 budget," Flynn said. "House Bill 1801, which finally completes the 2015-16 budget that was due last June 30, was sent to the governor last week. The governor had several options: to again veto the Republican budget entirely as he did last July, to veto specific line items as he did with the Republican budget in December, to sign the budget or to allow the budget to become law without his signature. "Today, the governor recognized the need for closure and to ensure our schools get the funds they need, while recognizing that the final budget is not a great deal for Pennsylvanians. "However, we in Harrisburg can now begin to work toward a budget for next year that can address some of the structural deficits that the governor was fighting to correct this year. "Sometimes a bad budget is better than no budget – and after nine months, it is time to move forward and address the looming deficit for 2016-17." ### Read more
