March 22, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — While saying that changes in policy are needed in some state government departments, State Sen. Joe Scarnati said Tuesday that the amount of money in this year’s proposed budget simply will not increase.

The state senate has held the line on taxes the last four years, and Scarnati said taxes will not be increased this year.

“It’s clear that taxpayers don’t have any more to give,” he said.
Therefore, he said the state has to find a way to fund necessary and desirable programs with the money available.
