Governor’s 2018-19 Budget Overview

Diana Polson, Marc Stier, Stephen Herzenberg |

This research paper shares PBPC’s overview of Governor Wolf’s proposed budget for 2018-19. While the details are different, the basic theme of our analysis of the governor’s budget proposal is essentially unchanged from last year and the year before. Again, Governor Wolf presented another austere budget that, within the political limits of Harrisburg, makes progress on issues critical to Pennsylvanians. But because of those political limits, it does not make progress fast enough.
