Proposed Budget Cuts
- 1.9% cuts across the board in discretionary appropriations (expected to total $198 million, including a $50 million cut in basic education funding)
- 1.9% cut to legislature (totaling $6 million)
- 1.9% cut to courts (totaling $5 million)
- 1.9% cut to elected independents (totaling $3 million)
As many of you know, FMAP passed out of the House yesterday, but at lower levels than the state originally budgeted. Pennsylvania will be receiving approximately $600 million instead of $850 million from FMAP.
