HARRISBURG – After state Rep. Brad Roae (R-Crawford/Erie) today in Harrisburg voted for a state budget bill approved by the House, he issued the following statement:
“I voted ‘yes’ on the main budget bill because it makes good investments for many important things, but does not require a tax increase or borrowing to fund it and it even puts over $250 million in the Rainy Day Fund.
“I have been fighting against the Pennsylvania State Police fee, against tax increases and against borrowing. I was fighting for a smaller spending amount but the reality is a budget ends up being a reasonable compromise when conservative legislative chambers have to negotiate with a liberal governor who wanted to spend even more.”
