Pennsylvania lawmakers tout constitutional amendment as best way to avoid overspending

Pennsylvania lawmakers are gearing up to dive into closed-door negotiations that will lead to the 2019-20 state budget by the end of this month. With that in mind, a group of legislators concerned with the growth of government spending is once again seeking to have the Taxpayer Protection Act be included in those negotiations.

The TPA, introduced this session as Senate Bill 116 by Sen. Camera Bartolotta, R-Washington, would amend the state constitution to limit the growth in annual spending by the state government each year. Any increase from the previous year’s budget would be limited to the rate of inflation plus the rate of population change.
