Enacted Budget: Fast Facts - Program Alignment and Consolidation

By House Appropriations Committee Staff , | 10 years ago

In March, Governor Corbett presented a 2011/12 budget including significant cuts to General Fund appropriations compared with 2010/11 funding levels. His proposal also included the elimination of numerous line-item appropriations and the “alignment and consolidation” of other programs within the Executive Offices (commissions), Pennsylvania Commission of Crime and Delinquency, Department of Agriculture, Department of Community and Economic Development, Department of Health, and the Judiciary. The consolidation of these appropriations makes comparisons to prior years extremely difficult. Additionally, the funding levels of the individual components are not laid out and therefore become less transparent. The Republican budget (HB 1485 PN 2228) incorporates the majority of these collapsed appropriations. Please note that language does not exist in the General Appropriations Act, Fiscal Code, or other legislation detailing how the majority of these new programs will be implemented.
