Coleman Calls Governor’s Budget Proposal Irresponsible and Risky

HARRISBURG – State Sen. Jarrett Coleman (R-16) today issued the following statement following Gov. Josh Shapiro’s budget address to the General Assembly:

“Gov. Josh Shapiro’s budget proposal would increase spending at an irresponsible pace and uses unrealistic revenue projections to make it seem less risky.

“Pennsylvanians need a state budget that protects taxpayers, improves our economic competitiveness and expands school choice for parents and students.

“Throwing more government money at problems doesn’t guarantee they will be fixed. It often only results in more expensive problems.

“I’m committed to working with my colleagues in the General Assembly to adopt a realistic, balanced and responsible state spending plan. The state budget should fund the core functions of government, protect taxpayers against excessive spending, and promote private-sector economic growth and job opportunities for Pennsylvania residents.”
