PMA is pleased to announce the launch of a new half-hour cable program, “PMA Perspective”.

The good news is that the General Assembly sent Governor Corbett a $27.83 billion budget that supports record investment in education, including science, technology, engineering, and math programs and vital job training initiatives throughout the commonwealth. This is a pro-jobs budget consistent with the same successful elements Pennsylvania has seen since Governor Corbett took office, aiding in the creation of more than 125,000 private sector jobs.
