Harrisburg Highlights Week of March 14, 2022

Dear Friends,

This week, both the House and Senate wrapped up our respective series’ of Appropriations Hearings in the Capitol to get a better understanding of the Governor’s proposed budget and the individual Departments’ and Agency’s budget requests.  It’s been a long four weeks filled with a lot of information and research, but this exercise will no doubt help form our work together with the Administration and the Departments to craft a fiscally sound and historic budget.

This week, I attended the hearings for the Department of Labor & Industry, the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, and the Department of General Services (DGS)/Office of the Budget.  Below, you view my exchanges with the representatives of the respective departments to discuss matters important to my constituents.

I appreciate you taking the time to read my summaries, and definitely took this process in stride as it was my last opportunity to ask budget questions as your Senator.
