Next Generation - Same Values
My wife Lauren and my children and I are excited and grateful for the opportunity to serve you, the people of the 68th district through the end of this year. We are maintaining the offices and the great staff of former Rep Matthew Baker and continue to have the same contact information. For more information, please visit www.RepOwlett.com
Last week, I enjoyed spending time with the Bradford County Dairy Promotion Board and the First Citizens Community Bank during their customer appreciation day! We served about 300 milk shakes that day!
Last week we also spent many hours working on the state budget. I will be spending 2-3 days a week in session. I have also been assigned to the Insurance, Liquor Control and Human Services committees. I am spending time in the Troy and Wellsboro offices when I am not in session in Harrisburg. Please call and stop in to see us! We are happy to serve you.
Timely Budget Passes House
The House approved a no-tax-increase budget for the 2018-19 fiscal year that protects taxpayer while also investing more money for all levels of education and safeguarding our communities and families. This budget is the result of prudent spending, an improved economy and responsible policies that prevented the need for the governor’s repeated calls for increased taxes over the last four years.
For education, the budget creates a new, $60 million initiative to ensure Pennsylvania’s children are in a safe learning environment and invests $100 million more for basic education, $25 million more for early childhood education and an additional $15 million for special education. This equates to a record-high $12.3 billion for prekindergarten through 12th-grade education. Additionally, the budget includes a 3 percent increase for Pennsylvania’s state-related universities and community colleges; a 3.3 percent boost for the State System of Higher Education; and $30 million more for career and technical education.
Additional funds will help protect communities by training more state police troopers, caring for those with intellectual disabilities, supplying home visiting services for families affected by opioid crisis and supporting emergency medical services.
The $32.7 billion spending plan also sets aside money for the state’s Rainy Day Fund for the first time in over a decade.
