Statement from Alexandra Sirota on House Budget Release

Like the Senate, the House budget fails to invest in our state’s future.┬áSince the House budget contains costly new policies, such as a school voucher program, it will be very difficult for the state to provide our kids with a quality education, which hurts not just kids, but our economy too. Businesses need a skilled workforce to grow and thrive, so failing to adequately invest in education will cause long term pain in our state.

The House budget also has a placeholder for an expensive tax package. The $525 million that the House plans to spend on tax cuts for the wealthy would be better used to improve our schools and communities.
