Joint Statement from Republican Leaders urging Governor Wolf to Pass Stopgap Budget

“As members of the General Assembly, we continue to do our job to ensure that taxpayers’ money being collected by Harrisburg is returned to schools and communities. Implementing this emergency funding plan is our best option to help fund our schools and human services organizations that are being hit hard by the loss of state funds. This is an opportunity to keep that money flowing back to our communities while we forge a compromise.”

Governor Wolf Plans to Veto House Passed Stopgap Budget

Pennsylvania has been operating without a budget since July 1st, so Republican State legislators have been meeting with the Governor to try to come up with solutions, however these attempts have been unsuccessful.  Last week, the House passed a stopgap budget in order to save schools and state funded agencies from dipping into reserves or taking out additional loans.  Governor Wolf has publicly said that he plans to veto this budget.

Judge Emil Giordano

Candidate for Superior Court

Judge Giordano is running for Superior Court in Pennsylvania.  He has a long record of unique accomplishments and experiences that make him the best candidate for the Superior Courts including presiding over 80 jury trials and trying over 20 juries in both state and federal courtrooms.  During his first year as Administrative Judge of Domestic Relations, he met all state mandated performance measures for the first time in history. Additionally, during his tenure as Administrative Judge of the Orphan’s Court Division in Northampton County, it became the first county in Pennsylvania to require nationally recognized certifications for all court appointed attorney guardians.  

Governor Wolf Holding out for More Tax Dollars

June 30th has come and gone, and while the legislature met its obligation to pass a balanced budget by the constitutionally required deadline, here we are two months later without a budget.  Are you still paying taxes?  I certainly am.

The state is still receiving the revenue needed to fund state agencies, service providers, and our schools.  Yet there is no authorization to spend that money because Governor Wolf chose to veto a budget that was balanced, did not raise taxes, and provided increased education funding.  Notably, two-thirds of the line items were funded at or above the amount that the Governor requested.

The budget impasse is being sustained by the governor, not the General Assembly
