Saving Pennsylvania’s AdultBasic the Stack Way

Posted by By at 25 February, at 17 : 20 PM Print

Senator Michael Stack (D-Philadelphia) has proposed using the General Assembly’s Budget Surplus to save the health care safety net that tens of thousands of Pennsylvanian’s rely on.

That budget surplus amounts to about $190 million, and as Stack suggested in a letter to Democratic Senators earlier this month, it’s enough money to keep the program up and running through April of 2012.

“We only have difficult choices to make regarding the future of the AdultBasic program. Using the General Assembly’s budget surplus will give us time to weigh all of the options to save this worthy program that helps working Pennsylvanians,” said Stack.
