HARRISBURG – Rep. Brian Ellis (R-Butler) voted in favor of the fiscally responsible legislative budget proposal, which would spend $30.18 billion, and includes no tax increases. After Saturday’s vote, Ellis made the following statement:

“The people of Pennsylvania deserve a sensible, controlled budget and that is what this legislative budget proposal that the House passed today would deliver. Gov. Tom Wolf’s budget proposal wanted to increase taxes by $13 billion over the next two years. I am listening to the people I spoke with back home in the 11th District who have said that now is not the time to raise taxes. This budget lives within our means, and grows below the Taxpayer Bill of Rights. The current fiscal year ends on Tuesday, June 30, and a government that works requires a budget that’s signed. The budget we passed today meets our constitutional job to ensure a ‘government that works’ continues to operate.”
