Local Democratic legislators from Erie are weighing in on Governor Corbett's budget.
3rd Distrtict State Representative Ryan Bizzarro and 49th District State Senator Sean Wiley say change is necessary for this budget to work.
Senator Wiley says the plan is inadequate and short sighted and that while it may help now it will do more harm than good in the future.
State Representative Ryan Bizzarro says the governor's refusal to support Medicaid expansion was a slap in the face to the half million Pennsylvanians needing healthcare.
Both Bizzarro and Wiley say they will keep a close eye on the budget and attempt to make it adequate for all Pennsylvanians.
