Infographic: Bridging the Budget Gap in 2014-15
Punxsutawney Phil predicted chilly weather ahead on Sunday. Will Governor Corbett do the same?
On Tuesday, Governor Corbett will emerge from his office to deliver his state budget address. Will he see much-needed sources of revenue in Pennsylvania’s future, or will this early February ritual result in an extension of economic winter for our state?
It's Budget Week in Pennsylvania, and the Pennsylvania Budget and Policy is here to help you make sense of the future that the Governor sees for our state – without the top hats or tuxedos seen yesterday in Puxsutawney but with analysis and facts.
First, make sure you Like PBPC's Facebook page so you don't miss out on any up-to-the-minute details and infographics we will be posting there throughout the week. Also, be sure to follow us on Twitter where we will be live Tweeting the Governor's budget address to the General Assembly beginning at 11:30 a.m., using the hashtag #PABudgetLive.
Come back here to our web site Tuesday afternoon for additional resources and an overview of the Governor's 2014-15 budget proposal. Then on Wednesday morning, come back to read PBPC Director Sharon Ward's commentary on the Governor's budget.
Later in the week, look for PBPC's detailed analysis of the Governor's budget. This is a must-read for anyone who wants to go beyond the numbers to get to the real implications of this budget.
