Pennsylvania’s House of Representatives will be in session today in Harrisburg after a seven week break. They must finalize a plan to fill a nearly $2 billion revenue hole in the spending plan they passed in June.
The delay could bring another downgrade to Pennsylvania’s battered credit rating. Member still have to come up with the money to keep state agencies, programs and schools funded at the levels Republican and Democratic lawmakers designated in the $32 billion spending plan. A vote is expected this week on the latest plan pushed by a group of House Republicans. The state senate returns to work next week.
