Let the games begin. He takes all this stuff out and when the legislators put it back in they have to give up on something else, where are his morals and ethics?? I'm sure state furloughs are next.

You tell he doesn't have to run again.

we are eliminating 900 jobs which then will role to unemployment which will see an avg of 350 dollars a week per layoff... so your looking at 315000 dollars a week and in a month time 1.2 million dollars in unemployment... WOW WHAT A SAVINGS??? looks like buy laying off your hurting the taxpayers then just letting them wrok and spending 326,000 is grants.

Making government smaller is good for the economy in the long run. Of course it would have been better to do this when economic times were better across the board, but that's not the nature of government. It likes to grow. The Commonwealth needs to take this bitter medicine or it will drive more residents and businesses out.

looking at the list i can't help but wonder why tax dollars were being used for some of the programs in the first place?

James,

Thanks for sharing this list.
I agree with every one of these cuts. They look pretty broad-based and our not singling out one general department of state government or region of the Commonwealth.

It would be nice if all the state legislators agreed to the cuts and decided to cut a little deeper by keeping state spending at its current level. If we don't want to keep driving businesses and residents out of Pennsylvania that's what the legislature has to do.

With so many businesses in the commonwealth closing their doors I would think jobs could be cut in Harrisburg.

Sales Tax
Use tax
Labor & Industry
Commercial Registration
Vehicle Registration
Personal Income tax

Seems to me there is or will be less work in these departments to keep all the employees there...just a thought!
