Kauffman Opposes Rendell Effort to Close Scotland School
2/3/2009
State Rep. Rob Kauffman (R-Cumberland/Franklin) today issued the following statement in reaction to Gov. Ed Rendell’s plan to eliminate funding for the Scotland School for Veterans’ Children:
 
“Tomorrow, Gov. Ed Rendell will unveil his proposal for the 2009-10 state budget and it has come to my attention that the governor’s proposal will eliminate state funding for the Scotland School for Veterans’ Children. Without that funding, the Scotland School will be forced to close.
 
“Our Commonwealth is enduring a serious fiscal crisis and every effort must be made to eliminate those budget items which are not serving their stated purpose. However, the Scotland School does not fall into that category. Established in 1895, the Scotland School provides a safe and caring learning environment for the children of hundreds of Pennsylvania veterans. 
 
“Pennsylvania’s men and women in uniform serve our nation and our Commonwealth with honor and dignity. Providing funds for the continued operation of the Scotland School is a small price to pay in honor of that service. 
 
“Governor Rendell’s proposal to eliminate this funding is a slap in the face to those veterans and their families. I intend to stand with the veterans, their families, and the staff at the Scotland School to oppose Governor Rendell’s plan to shut them down.”
