House Appropriations Committee to Hold Hearings on $46 Billion Proposal

In an effort to promote fiscal responsibility, the House Appropriations Committee has announced a series of hearings that will scrutinize the governor’s proposed spending plan of nearly $46 billion. Starting next week, the committee will hear from officials from various state departments, beginning with the state Department of Education on Monday. On Tuesday, the committee will shift its focus to higher education, including state-related universities, community colleges, and the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency.

On Wednesday, the PA State System of Higher Education will have its turn before the committee in the morning, followed by the Department of Agriculture in the afternoon. The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources will appear on Thursday morning, and the Department of Environmental Protection will follow in the afternoon.

For those who want to follow the proceedings, all hearings will be live-streamed on, and a schedule of upcoming hearings and completed hearing videos can be found on the website as well. The House Appropriations Committee is committed to ensuring that taxpayer dollars are being used effectively and efficiently.
