Burns issues statement regarding Gov. Tom Wolf’s state budget address

HARRISBURG, Feb. 5 – State Rep. Frank Burns, D-Cambria, today issued the following statement regarding Gov. Tom Wolf’s budget address:


“After years of the governor pushing different tax schemes, I’m pleased that he has proposed a no-new-taxes budget. As a fiscally conservative Democrat, I have consistently opposed tax hikes and will do so again, if needed. I look forward to working with leaders of both parties, in a bipartisan manner, to ensure we have an on-time budget.


“During budget negotiations, I will insist the families in my district are heard. It’s time for everyone to put party affiliation aside and focus on what’s really important: investing in our children, taking care of the seniors of our community, fighting for working families and honoring the veterans who fought for this country.”
