COMMONWEALTH BUDGET UPDATE
July 19, 2016
Dear TALON Member,
Last week, the Pennsylvania House, Senate and Wolf Administration completed a 2016-17 budget for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. As part of the budget process, the Pennsylvania House and Senate, as well as Governor Wolf, approved HB2139, which increased Temple University’s state funding by 2.5 percent. Given the budget challenges and constraints faced by the General Assembly, this is a significant accomplishment.
Over the past few weeks, I asked you to contact your Pennsylvania State Representative and urge them to support Temple. Many of you responded. Now I am requesting that you thank your Pennsylvania Legislators for that support. If you are a Pennsylvania resident, please click here to find your Pennsylvania State Representative and Senator, as well as a thank you letter you can automatically e-mail them.
As always, I thank you for your continued support of Temple University.
