Budget: Setting Priorities, Spending with Sustainable Revenues

Budget season is in full swing at the Capitol with a vote scheduled this week on House Bill 1437 (Rep. Bill Adolph, R-Delaware County), the General Appropriations Bill for Fiscal Year 2013-14.
Under the $28.3 billion pay-as-you-go budget, House Republicans prioritize funding for education, public safety, health and human services, and the environment. The plan represents a $578 million, or 2.1 percent, increase over this year’s budget. 
The bill proposes to do the following: 
·         Increase funding for basic education by $100 million.
·         Allocate funding for more than 300 new state troopers.
·         Add $7.2 million to the Department of Health to restore funding health treatment and prevention disease line items such as epilepsy support, ALS support services, Tourette syndrome support, poison control centers and Lupus support.
·         Allocate $4 million in funding for county conservation districts.

Common Core… or common fear?

The fact is, as with many initiatives hatched under the previous Rendell Administration, the state’s move to the “Common Core” curriculum was done without much public notice or input. Tens of millions of tax dollars have been invested, and now that the Department of Education is starting to roll out these tests and curricula, parents are asking questions and sharing real concerns.
The House is responding. House Resolution 338 (Rep. Hal English, R- Allegheny County) urges the Secretary of Education and the State Board of Education to review policies relating to the adoption of state academic standards for K-12 education, and to respond to the recent wave of concerns by amending state regulations to affirm Pennsylvania’s commitment to its tradition of local control, rigorous standards and respect for the privacy of its citizens.

Are you freakin kidding me? The PAHouseGOP.com is blaming Rendell?
The very people who lose a kidney when anyone says "Well, it all started under Bush."
It's 2013. Corbutt has been gov for 3 years. THREE YEARS.
Stop blaming Rendell, and besides, nothing and I mean NOTHING happens in PA politics without R approval.
Any problems with schools lies squarely on the Corbutt admin, try as you might to place blame otherwise.
Bunch of losers.
