Helm Supports Responsible Budget that Sets Proper Priorities
7/1/2013

$28.4 billion spending plan holds the line on taxes

HARRISBURG – Rep. Sue Helm (R-Dauphin) issued the following statement after Sunday’s passage of the 2013-14 state budget in the House of Representatives. Helm voted in favor of the balanced $28.4 billion spending plan, which does not raise taxes. The budget was approved on time for the third consecutive year. 

“This budget stays the course that began three years ago when we returned to responsible spending that sets the proper priorities, including education, health, the environment, public safety and job creation. And we accomplished that goal without placing further burdens on Pennsylvania taxpayers.

“I am pleased we were able to increase funding for our public schools by $122 million, bringing the total to $10 billion, which is the highest amount of state dollars ever spent on basic education.”

“Education funding amounts for schools in the 104th Legislative District are as follows (includes special education; accountability block grants; transportation; non-public and charter school transportation; and the state’s share of Social Security and retirement payments):

  • Central Dauphin School District - $32,157,991, a 3.3 percent increase of $1,029,653.
  • Halifax Area School District - $7,926,266, a 2.3 percent increase of $178,812.
  • Millersburg Area School District - $5,319,258, a 2.1 percent increase of $110,251.
  • Susquenita School District - $12,148,316, a 2.2 percent increase of $262,941.
  • Susquehanna Township School District - $7,612,391, a 3.8 percent increase of $279,500.
  • Upper Dauphin Area School District - $7,885,409, a 2.2 percent increase of $173,654.
  • Williams Valley School District - $9,027,547, a 2.1 percent increase of $192,373.”

Gov. Tom Corbett signed the 2013-14 General Appropriation Bill (House Bill 1437) into law on Sunday evening, before the midnight deadline.
