Gov. Tom Corbett recently presented his proposed 2013-2014 budget before the General Assembly in Harrisburg.
While his $28.4 billion spending plan is nearly a 2.4 percent increase from last year's budget, it does not call for any tax increase.
The plan does include a $90 million or 1.7 percent increase in state funding for basic education, the first in two years, bringing the total to nearly $5.5 billion, the highest level of state funding for school districts.
