HARRISBURG – Rep. Ryan Mackenzie (R-Berks/Lehigh) today issued the following statement after the House passage of the nearly $39.8 billion state budget:
“Today, I voted to protect taxpayers across the Commonwealth with a commitment to no new taxes and no new fees. It continues our pledge to strengthen education by dedicating more funding to preK-12, career and technical, and higher education. We are also supporting children and families who have suffered through educational losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our budget looks to deposit over $2.5 billion into the Rainy Day Fund to continue to secure our fiscal future, while preserving federal relief funds to be used for future budgets and addresses long-term issues arising from COVID-19.
“This legislation promoted a fiscally responsible budget, investing in our key priorities, and saving for our future.”
