Statement from Keystone Progress Executive Director Dan Doubet

"This has been a disappointing budget season for Governor Wolf's stated priorities, but it will be absolutely devastating to the most vulnerable Pennsylvanians. We need leaders to do better, and we will be vocally pushing for improvements in state policy in the weeks and months to come. Our solidarity is with all of the domestic violence survivors, people living with diseases and disabilities, people facing homelessness, veterans, human trafficking survivors, and low wage earners, whose basic needs were left on the negotiating floor. While legislators go home for a timely summer recess, thousands of their constituents will be scrambling to survive. Going forward, leaders who ignore the needs of Pennsylvanians can expect the people to bring accountability to their door and at the ballot box."
