The deadline to pass a state budget is just days away. The effects of the recession have created a hole in the state budget in the range of $1.2 billion. If we are to avoid a repeat of last year’s 101-day late budget, Governor Rendell and legislators must pass a new state budget by June 30, one that fills this revenue gap either through increased taxes and fees, or more cuts to state programs—or both.
Our State Senate has passed a 2009-2010 budget that will cut Schlow's funding by more than 50%, which means a major reduction or even elimination of services to you. These cuts are deeper than ever before and come at a horrible time for those of you who rely on Schlow to provide vital services at no cost to you.
