BLOG: Governor Wolf’s Three 2016-17 Budget Priorities

first_img Budget News,  The Blog As we approach the 2016-2017 budget deadline, Governor Wolf has affirmed three priorities that are critical to providing smarter, long term investments in schools, social programs and public safety.Our commonwealth faces a massive deficit and the possibility of compounding future fiscal gaps if we don’t move Pennsylvania in the right direction by balancing our budget with sustainable revenue.Let’s take a closer look at the governor’s three priorities.Education FundingFunding our schools has always been, and continues to be, a top priority for Governor Wolf and his entire administration.As we approach the 2016-17 budget deadline, Gov. Wolf is fighting for a $250 million increase to basic education funding, as well as $30 million for early childhood education, and $30 million for special education.Addiction Treatment FundingGovernor Wolf has spent much of his past three months at roundtables across the commonwealth discussing local and statewide efforts to combat the opioid abuse and heroin use epidemic in Pennsylvania.Governor Wolf proposed $34 million in the 2016-17 budget. This funding would allow the state to draw down approximately $18 million in matching federal funds to implement 50 Centers of Excellence that will treat more than 11,000 people that currently are not able to access treatment.Deficit ReductionIt is a widely-acknowledged fact that a reliance on one-time fixes and delayed payments has led Pennsylvania into a dire financial crisis: a massive deficit that threatens our investment in schools, social programs and public safety.Governor Wolf is working with Republicans and Democrats in the General Assembly and he’s engaged them for their ideas to accomplish this task responsibly.
