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.
Leaders of the CLEAR Coalition vowed to work with lawmakers in both chambers in support of Gov. Wolf’s proposal to levy a fair – and long overdue – tax on the Marcellus shale drillers and to use some of the proceeds to address Pennsylvania’s school funding crisis.
Pennsylvania confronts a $2 billion budget deficit that is a result of Gov. Tom Corbett’s failed policies, principally one-time budget fixes; and his unwillingness to support a statewide shale tax, Medicaid expansion or closing corporate tax loopholes.
