HARRISBURG — Attorney General Josh Shapiro released the following statement on the FY2018-2019 budget proposal and address delivered today by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf:

“Governor Wolf offered a responsible budget and a positive vision for our Commonwealth,” Attorney General Shapiro said. “I thank the Governor for his willingness to invest in law enforcement and public safety.”

“It’s clear both the Governor and the Legislature are focused on fighting the heroin and opioid epidemic – Pennsylvania’s number one public health and public safety challenge. The prosecutors and agents in my office will continue working with the Governor and the Legislature to expand our efforts to combat this crisis that claims 14 Pennsylvanians’ lives each day, and I am confident law enforcement will have what we need to protect our citizens.”
