Mullery likes governor’s commitment to career and technical education

HARRISBURG, Feb. 6 – State Rep. Gerald Mullery issued the following statement in response to Gov. Tom Wolf’s 2018-19 state budget proposal:

“I was thrilled to hear the governor’s specific commitment to career and technical education that will ultimately lead to family-sustaining jobs for people living in Luzerne County and throughout Pennsylvania. I’m working with Republicans on a bipartisan package of bills on this important issue through my subcommittee appointment,” said Mullery, who serves as Democratic chairman of the House Education Committee’s Subcommittee on Career and Technical Education.

“Additionally, I know the hardworking people of the 119th Legislative District are pleased the governor's budget contains no proposed tax increases on their families," Mullery said. “I understand this is the first step in the budget process. I remain willing to work across the aisle and with the administration to pass a responsible, on-time budget."

Mullery said the governor's proposals go hand in hand with the House Democrats' Plan For PA, which includes supporting quality schools, good jobs and fair taxes for all Pennsylvanians.
