Analysis of the PA Budget Agreement

The Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center analyzes the $28.05 billion 2010-2011 budget agreement here.

Libraries and agricultural programs saw funds reduced. In addition, state funds were cut for autism intervention, behavioral health, child care assistance, domestic violence prevention, legal services, homeless assistance and mental health services. At this point, it is not apparent if ARRA funds will make up for the decrease in funding. Funding for early intervention (education), disability services and long term care was increased.
