"Day of Reckoning" Budget Briefing in Delaware County on March 22

“The magnitude of the fiscal challenge that our state faces is perhaps unprecedented, certainly unprecedented in any time in our recent history. You probably heard of reports of a deficit of around $4 billion. I would not dissuade you of those reports today. They’re accurate. The day of reckoning has arrived."  --Pennsylvania Budget Secretary Charles Zogby

What will the budget cuts include? How will these cuts affect the services you rely on? What can you do to prevent cuts that will have a long-term negative effect on Pennsylvania's families? Attend the "Day of Reckoning" State Budget Briefing to find out.

This briefing, which will feature Sharon Ward from the Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center, will discuss the budget cuts and advocacy steps to address those issues. Please come to learn and to share information as Delaware County prepares for the impact of this budget and how to mitigate it.
