Quigley Supports Education Funding Increases, Responsible Spending
HARRISBURG – Following the budget address that Gov. Tom Wolf delivered today to a joint session of the General Assembly, Rep. Tom Quigley (R-Montgomery) released this statement:

“While I do not agree with everything that the governor proposed today, I do support continued increases in education funding. Throughout my tenure as a state representative, I have made education funding a top priority in the budget and supported state budgets that now provide more basic education funding than at any time in history.

“By investing in education, we are helping our children and helping to attract new employers – two things that will help keep Pennsylvania competitive in the years to come and keep the state financially viable.

“At the same time, it is also crucial to make sure that the state budget spends wisely and on our priorities. The governor’s budget calls for overall increased spending at a level that I expect is more than the House budget will present, but it does offer a more reasonable starting number than was presented in previous years. I believe we can educate for success, as well as provide both work and economic opportunities, without broad-based tax increases; I look forward to making that happen.”
