40,000 Jobs for Pennsylvanians

On Wednesday, Feb. 23, 2011, I joined my Senate Democratic colleagues in unveiling  “PA Works” – a 6-point plan, which has potential to spur the creation of tens of thousands of jobs in Pennsylvania. While creating these jobs, PA Works reduces state spending, puts a focus on helping small businesses, rebuilds our crumbling infrastructure and fosters innovation, and does not increase taxes to do so.

The plan focuses on 6 key areas:

• Small Business
• Workforce Training
• Critical State Investments
• Clean and Green Energy
• Infrastructure Investment
• Tax Fairness

To see a more detailed breakdown of PA Works, please visit the power point presented to the press last week.

PA Works will spur the creation of over 40,000 jobs and leverage over $2 billion in new private investment. In addition, PA Works will result in more than $150 million in general fund savings.

In the coming weeks, my colleagues and I in the Senate Democratic Caucus will be introducing several pieces of legislation which forward each component of the PA Works plan. Stay tuned for more details!
