The CLEAR Coalition today urged GOP leaders in both the Senate and House to stop playing political games and end the budget stalemate by working toward a compromise on a real budget that funds our schools and cleans up the state’s fiscal mess.
Republicans are poised to pass a state budget that adds a grand total of $8 million in new basic education funding, or roughly 3 cents per student for each school day and less than 1 percent of the $1 billion that was cut from classrooms in the last four Republican-backed budgets.
Leaders of the CLEAR Coalition today urged Republican lawmakers to end the political games and focus on a state budget that restores the devastating cuts to our public schools and other critical state programs.
The CLEAR Coalition today launched a television campaign urging lawmakers to support Gov. Tom Wolf’s budget proposal and “start moving Pennsylvania forward.”
Leaders of the CLEAR Coalition congratulated Gov. Tom Wolf on his bold 2015-2016 budget proposal and vowed to work with the legislature to form bipartisan support for the vision that Gov. Wolf has outlined today.
