Minimum Wage

 

(HARRISBURG, Pa.) – June 28, 2015 -- The 2015-16 proposed budget passed in a party-line vote by the Pennsylvania House yesterday, and under consideration by the Pennsylvania Senate tonight, continues to rely on the kind of one-time revenue sources and budget fixes that have patched together the state’s last four budgets and that have led to repeated downgrades of the state’s bond rating.

(HARRISBURG, PA)With state budget negotiations heating up in Harrisburg, for the first time new information-packed fact sheets are being released by the Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center that reveal the real impact of Gov. Wolf's budget plan on taxpayers, homeowners, schoolchildren, minimum wage workers and other Pennsylvanians who would be affected by his proposals.

 

We have BIG news that will make Keystone Research Center’s Annual Awards Reception on June 1 at the Hilton Harrisburg especially exciting and exclusive this year. Our guest speaker will be Gov. Tom Wolf! He will begin speaking promptly at 5:30 p.m. You won’t want to miss what the governor has to say as the legislature returns to session and budget negotiations reach fever pitch.
