Officials react to Pa. budget proposal

Despite no budget increase, Gov. Tom Corbett's proposed 2014-2015 state budget of $29.4 billion would hike spending by nearly $1 billion.The proposal provides additional funding for Pre-K-12 education, but restricts funds in a way that will make it hard to restore cuts made to the classroom in recent years.The most significant line items are funding for education (35 percent), medical assistance and long-term living (22.8 percent), other welfare (16 percent) and corrections (7.5 percent).
