Governor Tom Corbett's budget took center stage at DeSales University.
Pennsylvania's Secretary of Revenue Dan Meuser spoke Wednesday morning at an event organized by the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce.
The secretary outlined Governor Corbett's recent budget proposal focusing on pension reform, education and transportation funding.
He also discussed a budget proposal that would lower some key taxes for business owners.
Secretary Meuser says the plan will lead to good things for Pennsylvania.
"To simply make Pennsylvania more competitive, to allow businesses to grow with less strain from the government, and growth leads to employment, and employment leads to better things for a lot of people," said Meuser.
Pennsylvania's state treasurer is among those who opposes Corbett's plan to overhaul the state's largest public employee pension plans.
Rob McCord says a proposal to divert newly hired state workers into a 401K-style plan would actually cost taxpayers more.
