Gov. Tom Corbett’s proposed 2014-2015 budget of $29.4 billion would raise Pennsylvania’s spending by nearly a $1 billion.
The budget includes no tax increases.
That extra spending — 3.3 percent more than 2013-2014 — would go to, among other things, new school funding, new scholarships and economic development. The biggest 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).
