Coalition of State House Members to Unveil Budget Alternative to Senate/Wolf Tax Increases

WHAT: In light of the absence of a final revenue plan for the 2017-18 fiscal year, a 17-member group of state House legislators will present its plan to close out and fully fund the state budget without the need for raising taxes on hard-working Pennsylvanians. The proposal is an alternative to legislation passed by the Senate and endorsed by Gov. Tom Wolf that would increase taxes on consumers’ natural gas, electric and telephone bills; as well as borrow more than $1.3 billion.

WHO: The group, led by Rep. Dan Moul (R-Gettysburg), consists of representatives from Adams, Allegheny, Berks, Butler, Clearfield, Cumberland, Dauphin, Elk, Franklin, Indiana, Jefferson, Lancaster, Lebanon, Lehigh, Northampton, Schuylkill, Washington and York counties.

WHEN: Tuesday, Sept. 5, 1 p.m.

WHERE: Capitol Media Center, 8 East Wing, State Capitol Complex, Harrisburg.
