February 3 is Budget Day 2018 – the day when Governor Tom Wolf delivers his budget address to the General Assembly and proposes a spending and revenue plan for Pennsylvania for the 2018-19 fiscal year.
As always, the Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center will conduct an independent, credible analysis of the governor's budget proposal, with particular attention to its impact on working families, and we'll share our initial analysis on the PBPC website and Facebook page.
For an in-depth analysis of Governor Wolf's proposed budget, we invite you to join us for our annual Budget Summit on Thursday, March 8, 2018, from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm, at the Hilton Harrisburg.
At the summit, we'll examine the many challenges facing Pennsylvania in 2018 and the years ahead, from potentially far-reaching changes to social safety net programs at the federal level, to the commonwealth’s structural deficit caused by years of irresponsible budgeting and tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy.
The Summit also features opportunities to hear from experts about current issues impacting budget negotiations and intersecting with state fiscal issues, including topics like reforming property taxes and how the budget impacts vulnerable communities of color. Workshops will also focus on practical themes, like messaging, mobilizing, nonpartisan advocacy, and legislative strategy.
