Rep. Jozwiak Comments on the Latest House Effort to Finalize the State Budget - 3/16/2016
Lawmakers took action Wednesday in the state capitol to provide essential funding for the remainder of the 2015/2016 state budget. The current year’s fiscal plan remains unresolved due to the Governor’s line-item vetoes of more than $6 billion for basic and higher education, as well as money for the Department of Corrections and agriculture programs. The House and Senate put forth the supplemental budget legislation to address funding holes created by the Governor’s vetoes and restore state funding for these programs. The funding bill approved today provides for a 200 million dollar increase for basic education, a 5 percent increase for higher education, and ensures that no schools will close in the Commonwealth. Rep. Barry Jozwiak (R-Berks) said it is past time to complete the budget before local schools and other crucial programs are forced to close their doors.
Rep. Jozwiak Comments on Governor’s Budget Address - 2/9/2016
House lawmakers offered their reactions to Gov. Tom Wolf’s spending proposal for fiscal year 2016-17, which he announced today in an address before a joint session of the General Assembly. The governor’s budget plan would increase taxes on working Pennsylvanians and employers by $3.6 billion and spending by 10 percent, or $3 billion, and calls for $33.3 billion in total spending. To support his proposed spending plan the governor has proposed 15 new tax increases, including a retroactive increase in the Personal Income Tax on Pennsylvania workers.
Rep. Jozwiak Comments on Defeat of the Governor’s Tax Increase Plan - 10/7/2015
The Pennsylvania House voted to defeat the Governor’s tax increase proposal Wednesday in Harrisburg. The latest version of the tax legislation would have increased the personal income taxes by 16 percent, from 3.07 percent to 3.57 percent, and would have levied one of the highest tax rates on the production of natural gas in the nation. House Republicans overwhelmingly voted against the Governor’s tax plan and called for action on a state budget that will balance without increasing the burden on hard-working Pennsylvanians. Rep. Barry Jozwiak (R-Berks) offered the following comments following the vote on the bill.
Rep. Jozwiak Comments on Efforts to Ensure Funding to Vital Education and Human Service Programs - 8/26/2015
In an effort to restore funding to vital human service and education programs, the Pennsylvania House on Tuesday attempted a line by line override of the Governor’s blanket veto of the state budget. Funding for these human services providers and contractors has been suspended due to the budget veto. Lawmakers said they are working line by line to ensure these crucial programs, that would be funded at the same level the Governor initially proposed, could continue to provide services to those in need until a budget deal can be reached.

Jozwiak Comments on Passage of Wine & Liquor Privatization and Public Pension Reform Legislation - 6/30/2015
The Pennsylvania House voted this week on a number of statewide issues that directly impact Pennsylvania communities and taxpayers. On Tuesday the House approved legislation to address Pennsylvania’s growing pension crisis, which continues to threaten the economics of the state and local school districts. Senate Bill 1 would establish a hybrid defined contribution/cash balance plan for future state and school employees, rather than the current defined benefit plan. The House also voted Tuesday to approve House Bill 466, which would end full government control of wine and spirits sales in the Commonwealth by giving beer distributors the opportunity to obtain a license to sell wine and spirits under a single roof, and would provide other current license holders with additional retail sale options. Rep. Barry Jozwiak (R-Berks) offered comment following passage of these bills:
