Mako Offers Thoughts on Governor’s Budget Proposal
2/6/2018
HARRISBURG — Rep. Zach Mako (R-Lehigh/Northampton) issued the following statement in response to Gov. Tom Wolf’s $33 billion budget proposal:

“Last year was an eye-opening experience to the state budget process. After all of our hard work to eliminate a budget deficit and finalize a plan without any broad-based tax increases, it is disheartening to see the governor propose a budget that increases spending by $1 billion. We should be focused on keeping money in taxpayers’ pockets, not taking it away.

“Pennsylvania government, like you and I, must live within our means. Our families cannot sustain spending more than our paychecks allow. Likewise, Pennsylvania government must stop spending more than it generates. Taxes in this Commonwealth already are too onerous. We need to be focused on lower taxes, not adding taxes.

“As we work through the budget process, I look forward to studying the governor’s plan in detail. I will continue to keep a sharp eye on our state’s spending habits. I remain committed to economic opportunity for all, educating our children for success, making government more effective and efficient, and improving the safety and quality of life for our citizens. Our final budget must reflect these priorities and move Pennsylvania forward in order to be competitive nationally and globally.”

The 183rd District includes South Whitehall (part), Washington and Whitehall (part) townships and Slatington Borough in Lehigh County. It also consists of Allen, Lehigh and Moore (part) townships, and North Catasauqua, Northampton and Walnutport boroughs in Northampton County.
