Cawley: Get Rid Of School Spending Exemptions

Lt_Gov_CawleyPennsylvania Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley (pictured here) says Governor Tom Corbett’s budget calls for the same basic education funding the state had in the 2008-2009 school year. He says cuts from the current spending level reflect the loss of federal economic stimulus money that was never intended for that purpose.

“It was driven into education.  It should never have been there in the first place, so what we’ve done is back it out.  Now I know that there are those who are criticizing and saying, ‘You’re just kicking the can down the lane, that the local school districts are going to raise property taxes in order to make up for it.’  Well, one of the things the governor also made clear is that we want to back out all of those exemptions that were granted quite liberally in the previous administration.”

Cawley is referring to exemptions that let school boards increase spending by almost any amount without putting the budget on the ballot.  He says the Corbett Administration is pushing for a law requiring voter approval of any budget that increases spending by more than the inflation rate, no exemptions.  He appeared Monday on the WNPV talk program Comment Please by Univest.
