Governor Signs State Budget

Governor Edward Rendell signed the $28 billion 2010-11 fiscal year budget into law today. The signing, attended by many education groups including PA Principals Association (represented by Joe Acri, assistant executive director), was held at the Elwood Elementary School in the Mechanicsburg Area School District.   The budget provides $5.8 billion to education which is $250 million more than last year. This is especially significant since almost all other areas of the budget will see a reduction in spending.
