The Governor’s budget spends more than $48.3B - a 7.1% increase in spending - or $3.2B more. This proposal would wipe out our state’s savings in just 5-years. Setting Pennsylvanians on the path for tax increases or massive budget cuts in the future. My colleagues and I on the Senate Appropriations Committee are working to #GSD – get spending down.

Meet Rosemary Brown

Northeast Pennsylvania has been my home since I was five; my husband, Joe and I, have raised our three children here and are grateful to live in the beautiful Pocono Mountains to enjoy the unique opportunities this portion of our state has to offer.

The foundation of my life has always been centered around God, my family, and doing my best each day. While I never promise perfection, I do promise hard work and care for our community with an extremely grateful spirit. This is how I truly try to live my life, but it also makes me a better public servant for you.
