To responsibly move the state forward during these uncertain times, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives has passed a 5-month stabilizing budget in May and has now completed the process as the legislative session comes to a close. This type of budget approach allowed appropriate time to get the necessary data to make more informed decisions from a more accurate financial position.


For the entirety of the 20-21 fiscal year, this Pennsylvania state budget:

- fully funds schools and education, as well as public health and community safety.
- protects Pennsylvania's most vulnerable (especially in a pandemic) by funding vital health and human service programs.
- provides necessary funding for our public health and safety frontline workers.
- reduces state spending.
- includes no new or increased taxes or fees.

By standing up for taxpayers, this state budget is balanced using existing resources, and without tax increases or public borrowing.
- The budget is balanced using $531 million transferred in available special funds.
- Even though it's been a very challenging year, legislators made the fiscally responsible decision to preserve the state's Rainy Day Fund. The fund will have $243 million remaining.
