Farry Statement on Missed Budget Deadline
6/30/2009
Rep. Frank Farry (R-Bucks) issued the following statement regarding House Democrats’ refusal to bring a budget plan to members for debate before the start of the new fiscal year:
 
“For the seventh consecutive year, Pennsylvania is starting a new fiscal year with no budget in place. It is disappointing that the majority House Democrats will allow the deadline to pass without even bringing a budget to the floor of the House. Pennsylvanians deserve better.
 
“The Senate has passed a budget plan, but serious negotiations cannot begin until Democrats bring their plan to the floor. I was among the first House members to sponsor a procedural motion to bring all of the current budget plans to the House floor so that we could craft a compromise and avoid the situation in which we now find ourselves.
 
“There are two very clear visions of how Pennsylvania should weather the current economic crisis. Our vision reflects the reality that Pennsylvania facing the worst economic conditions since the Great Depression and makes commonsense spending choices in recognition of the fact that we are facing a projected $3.2 billion deficit. Their vision would have us try to spend our way out of this recession and they would increase your taxes by more than 16 percent to pay for it.
 
“I do not believe that increasing spending and raising taxes is sound fiscal policy during a recession and I encourage residents who agree with me to visit StopPATaxHike.com to make their voices heard.
 
“Thousands of families across Pennsylvania are making do with less because they simply do not have the funds to pay for everything they used to. It should not be any different for state government. Government must live within its means. That means examining state spending line by line to determine where there is waste and abuse and eliminate it so we can continue funding essential government services. 
 
“This is a conversation we should have been having months ago, not today, as the clock winds down on the current fiscal year. It is time for House Democrats and to bring their plan to the floor so we can reach a mutually agreeable compromise.”
