PA State Budget Announced

Gov. Tom Wolf signed the $34-billion budget Friday, June 28. The plan includes $750,000 for PA Public TV, the same amount as 2018-19 but does not stipulate $500,000 be allocated for the “Battling Opioids” statewide initiative. It also offers more money for public schools, early childhood education and public colleges and universities. There are no tax increases – and no new taxes or fees – in the budget. The Republican-led Legislature also approved a measure allowing the Wolf administration to take control of Pennsylvania’s online health insurance exchange program. The governor said it would help many Pennsylvanians save money.
