PA 529 College and Career Savings Program has record year

Contributions to the Pennsylvania 529 College and Career Savings Program hit a new high in 2018. Pennsylvania State Treasurer Joe Torsella said Monday that Pennsylvania families saved more in 2018 than in any other year of the program’s 25-year history.

Every dollar in the Treasury comes from the hard work of Pennsylvania taxpayers. Pennsylvanians need to trust that their money will be managed with fairness and integrity, uncompromised by conflicts of interest, political affiliation, favoritism, or other unfair considerations. Under my administration, the days of needing to know someone to do business with Treasury will be over.

We can and should do much better.
