Roae Issues Statement on State Budget Negotiations
7/9/2009
Rep. Brad Roae (R-Crawford) issued the following statement in reaction to the announcement by House Democratic leadership that floor sessions are cancelled until Monday:  

“The Democrats just canceled session for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday,” Roae said. “Monday is now the next possible day that we can vote on the budget.

“Today the Democratic leadership realized that almost all of the House Republicans and about 20 “Blue Dog” Democrats will not vote to increase the Personal Income Tax, as a result, the chances for passing a Personal Income Tax increase have been dealt a severe blow.   

“Pennsylvania currently has the 11th  highest tax burden in the nation. The people of Crawford County cannot afford an increase in the Personal Income Tax.     

“The Republicans are prepared to vote on a responsible budget plan that has no Personal Income Tax increase, will protect the people and will support the core functions of government.    

“Only the committee chair of the majority party can bring a bill up for a vote at a committee meeting.      
“There are 104 Democrats and 99 Republicans in the state House, so the Democratic chair of the House Appropriations Committee, Rep. Dwight Evans (D-Philadelphia), is the only person who can release the budget for a vote.

“I am here representing the people of my district.  I wish the Democrats would let us conduct session so we can get on with the people’s business.”
