Notice of Veto

September 29, 2015

 To the Honorable House of Representatives
 of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania:

 I am returning herewith, without my approval, House Bill 224 Printer's Number 2180.

 This bill is the Public School Code bill, which implements aspects of the temporary General Appropriations bill that I recently received as well. As I will veto the General Appropriations bill, I will also veto its implementation.

 This bill contains many laudable items that I support. Unfortunately, however, this bill does not restore the harmful education cuts imposed on each school district over the last four years, nor does it provide adequate funding to ensure Pennsylvanians have schools that teach our children. Simply stated, it fails to meet our constitutionally required obligation of providing a thorough and efficient system of education.

 For the foregoing reasons, I must withhold my signature from House Bill 224 Printer's Number 2180.
