Rabb sees positives in Wolf budget proposal

HARRISBURG, Feb. 7 – State Rep. Chris Rabb, D-Phila., said he sees many positive aspects to the budget proposal Gov. Tom Wolf unveiled today.

"Governor Wolf's budget proposal includes restoring more funding for K-12 education and pre-K, streamlining how new and prospective business owners are assisted by the state; reducing bureaucracy and administrative redundancies and the closure of a state prison in Pittsburgh in light of Pennsylvania's decreasing prison population," Rabb said.

"I look forward to studying the proposal in more detail and learning more from the several weeks of budget hearings that are about to begin."
