Agreement to Budget Framework Reached

Release Date: June 25, 2012

Last week, Governor Corbett and legislative leaders announced an agreement for a $27.65 billion framework for next year's Pennsylvania budget.  The agreed upon spend number increases the budget by $500 million from Governor Corbett's proposed budget plan released earlier this year.

Legislative leaders are now looking to pass the budget by June 30th after bypassing their previously stated mid-June deadline.  Details of the budget have not been released, but DVAEYC will report updates to early childhood funding as they break.  Please check the DVAEYC website for updated information on the 2012-2013 state budget.
