McNeill issues statement in response to Gov. Wolf’s budget

HARRISBURG, Feb. 3 – State Rep. Jeanne McNeill, D-Lehigh, today released the following statement in response to Gov. Tom Wolf’s budget address:

“Today, the governor’s proposal showed a dedication to helping get our commonwealth back on track,” McNeill said. “There is no doubt we have far to go with regard to helping people get back to work and ensuring the negative impacts of the COVID pandemic transition into part of our collective history as we move forward toward a recovery that prioritizes helping those hardest-hit.

“I look forward to working with my colleagues so that we do all we can to emphasize and echo what the governor outlined today,” McNeill said. “With a critical eye, we have an opportunity to look at the last 10 months, identify areas that are in need of improvements, and come together as a bipartisan legislative body to put forth a path to recovery that enhances and supports those items contained in today’s budget proposal.”
