Wolf Vetoes School Funding

Gov Tom Wolf
Tom Wolf kills school funding

By Sen Scott Wagner

Today (Sept. 29) has been a wild day so far in Harrisburg and it is only 2:30 p.m.

The Harrisburg version of the political thriller “House of Cards” is plowing ahead at full steam.

At 11 a.m., Auditor General Eugene DePasquale had a press conference highlighting all of the school districts in Pennsylvania that are on the verge of running out of money.

What the Auditor General did not mention is that Pennsylvania taxpayers are continuing to pay taxes and that money is still flowing into Harrisburg.

My thanks go out to the Auditor General for pointing out that school districts are running low on funds – but he stopped short of telling everyone that the flow of money has stopped because of Governor Wolf and his refusal to pass a balanced budget.

Below is an article from PennLive detailing what happened at the Auditor General’s press conference.

Around noon Governor Wolf issued a press release stating that he vetoed the Republican emergency funding package .

Folks – you can’t make this stuff up.

The Senate is in session and shortly thereafter Senate Republicans will go to caucus – today’s caucus will be interesting.

Stay tuned.

Sen. Wagner represents the 28th District in the Pennsylvania Senate.
