House Republican lawmakers moved to adopt a new state budget plan Tuesday in Harrisburg that would provide greater government efficiency, reduce overall state spending and avoid broad based tax increases. The $31.52 billion House budget is $246 million less than the current state spending plan and $815 million less than the budget proposal put forth by Governor Wolf earlier this year. The House budget also increases basic education funding by $100 million and provides an additional $25 million for both early childhood education and special education programs. House Bill 218 passed the House by a vote of 114 to 84 and now goes to the Senate for consideration. Rep. Jason Ortitay (R-Allegheny & Washington) offered comments on the budget legislation following the vote.
