Office of the Budget – Budget Hearing

 

Senator Wagner noted that the PA Taxpayers’ Caucus Report he produced with Rep. Seth Grove and other Caucus members identified $3 billion in potential government savings, yet the Administration paid an outside firm $1.8 million to perform the same task. He also inquired about the impact of public sector employee raises on the state budget and noted that delays in approval of DEP well permits are reducing potential state revenue.
