Are there essential services that should receive payments during Pennsylvania’s budget impasse?

Rep. Marla Brown (R-Lawrence) says yes.

The freshman representative plans to introduce legislation to amend Pennsylvania’s Administrative Code and help clarify the policies and procedures related to the payment of these services.

Brown, a member of the House Finance Committee, wants to specify what constitutes an essential service in the Commonwealth and proposes that it should be defined as “as any service for which payment was made during the previous fiscal year from Federal and State appropriations to the Department of Human Services, the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs and the Department of Aging.”

This includes:

  • Domestic violence
  • Mental health services
  • Behavioral health services
  • Intellectual Disabilities
  • Payments and services to the counties for children and youth programs and for the care of delinquent and dependent children
  • The Human Services Development Fund
  • Medical assistance payments for outpatient services
  • Drug and Alcohol treatment services

 

The co-sponsorship memoranda indicates that the legislation will require the Budget Secretary to certify the amounts paid for such services in the prior fiscal year and will require that the amounts paid during the impasse are subsequently deducted from the amount included in the enacted appropriation.

There is growing concern around the Commonwealth about the delays in state payments that support social services provided by local non-profits across the state.
