RIDGWAY – Despite no budget increase, Gov. Tom Corbett's proposed 2014-2015 state budget of $29.4 billion would hike spending by nearly $1 billion.
The proposal provides additional funding for Pre-K-12 education, but restricts funds in a way that will make it hard to restore cuts made to the classroom in recent years.
The most significant line items are funding for education (35 percent), medical assistance and long-term living (22.8 percent), other welfare (16 percent) and corrections (7.5 percent).
