Helm Disappointed in Wolf’s Decision to Line-Item Veto Responsible Budget Proposal
12/29/2015
HARRISBURG – Rep. Sue Helm (R-Dauphin/Lebanon) today issued the following statement in response to Gov. Tom Wolf’s line-item veto of the General Assembly’s latest budget compromise:

“While I am pleased the governor finally released critically needed funding to our schools and human service organizations, I am disappointed he refused to sign the responsible budget compromise that we sent to him last week.

“His disparaging remarks about our efforts to reach a responsible budget that does not place a heavier burden on Pennsylvania taxpayers fails to move the process forward. It is difficult to understand why he considers a $30.3 billion budget that increases education spending by $400 million without relying on broad-based tax increases to be ‘garbage.’

“Both sides need to now start anew and work together on reaching a budget solution that truly moves the Commonwealth forward, while keeping the interests of the state’s hard-working taxpayers in mind.”

The General Assembly sent House Bill 1460 to the governor’s desk on Dec. 24. The $30.26 billion spending plan funds state government’s core functions and supports Pennsylvania students by increasing education funding to the highest levels in the Commonwealth’s history – without the need for massive tax hikes.
