Government should operate within its means: evaluating the effectiveness of current programs; weeding out waste, fraud and abuse in spending; and investing wisely in worthy state-run programs that directly benefit taxpayers.

Citizens to Protect PA Jobs works with elected officials toward ensuring that state budgets are balanced, on-time and do not place unreasonable new tax burdens on business owners who are the economic backbones of their communities. We are committed to enacting spending plans that include classroom-focused education spending, ensure the safety and reliability of our transportation infrastructure and address our major cost-drivers – particularly the state’s public pension crisis. Each fiscal year, Pennsylvania’s final budget should reflect the true responsibilities of state government and be crafted with the best interests of every citizen of the Commonwealth at heart.
