Governor Wolf Meets with 4-H Students to Discuss His Commitment to Agriculture

March 09, 2016

Harrisburg, PA – This afternoon, Governor Tom Wolf met with 4-H students to discuss his commitment to agriculture and to the land grant system in Pennsylvania. Governor Wolf’s proposed 2016-17 budget includes a five percent increase, or an additional $2.4 million, for the Agricultural College Land Scrip Fund. This is the largest increase for Penn State’s Ag Sciences and Extension since 2012 when the Republican-controlled legislature cut land scrip funding by 19 percent. With this proposed funding, the governor has offered the resources we need to protect animal agriculture in the commonwealth, which means a safer food supply. The land grant institutions are a commonwealth asset.
