On The Issues
Our State Assembly and our Governor have an obligation to the people they represent to adequately fund the many agencies, local governments and school districts in our great commonwealth. Legislators shouldn’t get paid if they don’t pass a budget.
The corporations that use pipelines to move resources across Pennsylvania should be required to pay property taxes, and natural gas companies should be paying extraction fees.
As our Governor says, “Our state is never going to get stronger as long as we make our schools weaker.” We need better formulas for calculating school funding.
