Gov. Tom Wolf’s proposed 2018–19 budget includes an appreciated $15 million increase for Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education. After the governor’s budget address today, APSCUF spent the afternoon in the Capitol interviewing both Democratic and Republican leadership on the proposal and issues affecting higher education, including how members can advocate to keep the increase for the State System in the final state budget. (Spoiler alert: Contact your legislators and tell them your personal stories about why it’s critical for Pennsylvania to fund public higher education.)
