Statement on State Budget

The Arc of PA continues to take a strong stance on funding for Pennsylvanians with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We are incredibly concerned that in the midst of a vetoed budget, liquor and pension discussions, and arguments over shale tax, the needs of Pennsylvanians with significant disabilities are being forgotten. Read our press release that asks Governor Wolf and the legislature to do better for Pennsylvanians with disabilities as budget negotiations resume.
