Pennsylvania Taxpayers Win, Wolf Loses
By Sen. Scott Wagner
Gov. Wolf is refusing to sign the bill which means it will become law automatically.
Gov. Wolf has said repeatedly and emphatically this week and last week that he would veto the plan.
Let me be clear – this is a victory for Pennsylvania taxpayers and a setback for Gov. Wolf. He was forced to allow the spending plan to become law because Democratic Senators and House members were going to vote with Republicans to override his veto of the spending plan.
It will be interesting to see what Gov. Wolf does moving forward.
It is important to understand that Gov. Wolf’s 2016 – 2017 budget proposal is based on his original 2015 – 2016 spending plan.
Now that Gov. Wolf has had to accept a more responsible spending plan that doesn’t raise taxes, he will also have to be much more realistic about his 2016 – 2017 budget.
Today is a good day for the taxpayers of Pennsylvania.
