With Pitt, PA Wins

State funding is still pending — and in question — for Pitt and Pennsylvania's three other state-related universities. Despite its inclusion in the spending bill that passed by overwhelming bipartisan majorities and became law on July 11, and individual passage in the Senate, Pitt’s funding remains at risk until the House of Representatives enacts a revenue package and Pitt’s appropriation bill.

There is a growing concern that this budget impasse jeopardizes not only Pitt’s 2017-18 appropriation of $150 million, but also our future funding. Our representatives and leaders in the House need to hear from you. Pitt and its people are one of the best investments the Commonwealth can make, providing a $26 return for every $1 Pennsylvania invests in us.

The House of Representatives must return from recess to finish the job and fund the enacted spending package.
