Rep. Sankey Comments on House Passage of 2018-19 State Budget - 6/20/2018
The Fiscal Year 2018-19 General Appropriation bill (House Bill 2121) is on its way to the state Senate for consideration after the House of Representatives passed it Thursday by a vote of 188-10. The $32.7 billion spending plan increases growth by 1.7 percent, which is below the rate of inflation (2.13 percent), requires no additional taxes or revenues and officially erases a deficit. The budget also includes a record high $12.3 billion investment in education from pre-k through 12th grade, with additional increases in funding for career and technical education as well as higher education. The budget bill is expected to be sent to the governor prior to June 30, after anticipated Senate passage.
Rep. Sankey Comments on Passage of a Supplemental Funding Bill to Complete the 2015-16 State Budget - 3/17/2016
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 corrections and agriculture programs. The supplemental budget bill approved by the House and Senate would address the funding holes created by the Governor’s vetoes and restore state funding. The legislation provides for a 200 million dollar increase for basic education lines, a 5 percent increase for higher education, and ensures that no schools will be forced to close in the Commonwealth. Rep. Tommy Sankey (R-Cambria & Clearfield) said it is well past time to complete the budget and he hopes the governor will sign the legislation and keep schools open.
Rep. Sankey Offers His Reaction to the Governor’s Budget Address - 2/10/2016
Rep. Tommy Sankey (R-Clearfield & Cambria) offered his reaction to Gov. Tom Wolf’s spending proposal for fiscal year 2016-17, which was announced Tuesday 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. Sankey Comments on Veto Override Efforts to Ensure Funding for 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.
Rep. Sankey Comments Following Unanimous Vote to Reject Governor's Tax Increase Proposals - 6/2/2015
The House voted unanimously on Monday to reject Gov. Tom Wolf’s budget proposal and the associated tax increases requested to support his record spending plan. The plan was put forth as an amendment to ensure the governor’s ideas received fair and timely consideration on the floor of the House. The tax plans put forth by the new governor proved so unpopular that every member of the House present voted against it. Rep. Tommy Sankey (R-Clearfield & Cambria) offered these comments following the vote.
Rep. Sankey Supports Committee Approval of Pension Reform Legislation - 5/12/2015
Legislation to reform Pennsylvania’s two large and unsustainable public pension systems has passed the House State Government Committee and is headed to the full House for a vote. House Bill 727 would place future state workers and school district employees into a defined contribution system similar to a 401(k) plan, rather than continue the current taxpayer-funded defined benefit pension plans. Co-sponsor of the bill Rep. Tommy Sankey (R-Clearfield & Cambria) said this bill would take a first step toward relieving already overburdened taxpayers.
Rep. Sankey Reacts to Governor’s Budget Proposal Calling for $4.7 Billion in New Spending - 3/3/2015
Republican members of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives offered their reactions to Gov. Wolf’s $33.8 billion state budget proposal, delivered Tuesday before a joint session of the House and Senate. The Governor’s plan would increase state spending by $4.7 billion and also increase a variety of state taxes, including the personal income tax, sales tax, and tobacco taxes, as well as create a new gas severance tax which would be among the highest in the nation. An average Pennsylvania household with a median income of $52,548 would pay an additional 21% in state taxes under the Governor’s plan.
Rep. Sankey Comments on House Passage of Liquor Privatization Bill - 2/26/2015
The Pennsylvania House voted Thursday in favor of House Bill 466, which would shut down the state’s outmoded state liquor store system and replace it with more modern, privately owned wine and spirit retail system. House Bill 466 is nearly identical to liquor privatization legislation passed by the House in March 2013. It includes a series of reforms for beer, liquor and wine sales and would allow beer distributors to expand their businesses to sell liquor and wine as well as beer. Pennsylvania’s current liquor system was created more than 80 years ago, in 1933, following the repeal of Prohibition. The Commonwealth is presently one of only two states which continue to hold a complete monopoly over wholesale and retail sale of liquor. The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration.
Rep. Sankey Bill Creates Small Business IRA - 4/10/2013
Legislation to create a manufacturing Innovation Account Program that would allow small businesses in Pennsylvania to save tax-free for future investment in facilities, machinery and workforce training has been introduced in Harrisburg. Bill sponsor Rep. Tommy Sankey (R-Clearfield) said his legislation would allow thousands of small businesses with less than 50 employees to invest in increased capacity and help promote job and economic growth in the state.
