Associated Press Calls DEP Wracked By Years Of Budget Cuts

In a statewide story about the state budget situation Sunday, the Associated Press said members of the General Assembly are bracing for what they call a “get-out-of-town budget” that does little to bring long-term balance to the state’s “tattered finances.”

They quote Sen. Bob Mensch (R-Montgomery) as saying, “This budget is going to be difficult and any solution is going to involve pain.”
Except, Republicans and Gov. Wolf ruled out any increases in broad-based taxes to balance the budget and deal with estimated $2.2 billion budget deficit.
