Pennsylvania ed officials seeing immediate, potential long-term impact from state budget stalemate - Jarreau Freeman, the Reporter

The GOP budget proposal, which was pushed through in June, includes $800 million for schools and colleges, which includes an approximately $120 million increase in funding for basic and special education, and $41 million for higher education overall. Montgomery County Community College Interim President James Linksz said it’s hard to measure how the impasse will impact MCCC students. Areas of concern for the college are the state’s Pre-K Counts program, which helps MCCC provide childcare at no cost to college students in need, as well as the PA Keys and Act 101 programs, which also provide special supports for students in need.
