HARRISBURG – Rep. David Millard (R-Columbia) issued the following statement in response to Gov. Tom Wolf’s budget proposal:
“There are some points of the budget proposal that I am very glad to see. Funding for mental health services would certainly help those affected by Pennsylvania’s opioid crisis, and increased funding to state-system education would ease the burden on Pennsylvania’s students. I am a product of the state-system, and I’ve seen firsthand how beneficial it can be to a young person’s future. Unfortunately, I’ve also seen the massive toll that student loan debt can have on that same future. We need to fund these important systems, all while remaining fiscally responsible and placing as little burden as possible on the taxpayers.
I am committed to working to do my part in producing the Pennsylvania state budget and I look forward to another opportunity to work together for a timely finalized product.”
