Corbett holds line on taxes, but education, transportation remain concerns

“At the top of our concern list, is Corbett’s proposed cuts to higher education,” state Patriot-News editors. “He is basically forcing the privatization of our state’s public and state-related universities. He cut about 20 percent last year and is seeking another 30 percent cut to Penn State, Temple, Pitt and a 20 percent cut to State System schools. While there is no doubt times are tough, the Legislature should have a serious debate about the future of public higher education in this state.”
