Harrisburg, PA – Pennsylvania Treasurer Joe Torsella today applauded developments that a vote on the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) has been shut down due to a lack of support from enough U.S. Senators to bring the bill to the floor.
“Today’s developments provide some hope that commonsense may still exist in Washington. The BCRA was a cruel attack on Pennsylvanians, and was fiscally dangerous to the commonwealth by taking a wrecking ball to our General Fund."Pennsylvania Treasurer, Joe Torsella
Harrisburg, PA – Pennsylvania Treasurer Joe Torsella today responded to the vote by the Board of Governors of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education to increase tuition by 3.5 percent.
“It’s deeply disappointing that the leadership of Pennsylvania’s public higher education institutions would place a heavier anchor around the necks of students trying to prepare for tomorrow’s jobs. Pennsylvania’s higher education system is in desperate need of reform and reinvestment, not further tuition increases.Pennsylvania Treasurer, Joe Torsella
