Cutler Endorses State Budget Plan

HARRISBURG – Rep. Bryan Cutler (R-Peach Bottom) released the following statement regarding his “yes” vote on House Bill 1437, which proposes to spend $28.3 billion on state programs for the 2013-14 fiscal year:

“This budget holds the line on taxes and includes a slight increase spending, which is below the rate of inflation.  Fund increases in this plan would be distributed to the priorities Pennsylvania citizens have outlined, such as public education and public health. 

“I am particularly pleased with the funding increase afforded to ALS support services.  ALS is an absolutely devastating disease that quickly and completely debilitates those who receive an ALS diagnosis.  What is most concerning about the disease is its prevalence among veterans.  It is more cost effective to provide up front funding for these services than to wait for a patient to exhaust his or her resources before enrolling in taxpayer-funded Medicaid programs.”

House Bill 1437 will now go to the Senate for debate and consideration.
