Phillips-Hill: Governor’s Budget Proposal Great for DC, Lacks Reality for Harrisburg

HARRISBURG – Sen. Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-York) released the following statement in response to Gov. Josh Shapiro’s budget proposal unveiled today to a joint session of the General Assembly:

“We heard the governor express the need to spend a lot of hard-earned tax dollars that will grow state government spending by more than 7% – nearly double the rate of inflation. What we did not hear is a concrete strategy to pay for this spending spree Gov. Shapiro wants to take our state on during the next year. While this budget proposal would work great in Washington, D.C., where politicians can print more money to pay for endless spending, Pennsylvania taxpayers will be forced to pay even more in taxes to cover the governor’s extravagant spending with this budget.”
