Nine Month Budget Impasse Comes to an End

Following a 9-month standoff between state politicians in Pennsylvania, a state budget will be passed on Monday. The $7 Billion budget was backed by a majority of Republican lawmakers in Pennsylvania, but was also opposed by many state Democrats, including Governor Tom Wolf who threatened to veto the proposal if it reached his desk. The threat of school and health care center closures, however, caused Governor Wolf to allow the proposed budget to pass into law. While the governor still refuses to sign it into law, he has vowed not to veto it.

 

This truce is expected to be only temporary as the state budget for 2016-2017 is due in place on July 1st.
