My sincere thanks to the Pa Budget and Policy Center for inviting me to be part of a panel discussion on the state budget during their annual Pa. Budget Summit in Harrisburg.

[frame align=”right”]BudgetPolicyPanel_Feb2013[/frame]I very much appreciated the opportunity to discuss the need to address important issues including transportation, education and liquor and lottery privatization and how they will affect the future of the commonwealth.

The questions asked by audience members were thoughtful and spoke directly to the heart of the issues we’re facing. The event is a reminder of how critical these public discussions are to the budget process with our shared goal of moving Pennsylvania forward.
