Nope. Try again.

Pennsylvania House Passes Budget Bill


The Pennsylvania House of Representatives has passed a $2.2 billion revenue bill in an effort to prevent the state from running out of money.  It passed on party lines by a vote of 103-91, with all 76 democrats voting against the measure.  The legislation will move on to the Senate for a vote and, if passed, to Gov. Tom Wolf’s desk for a signature.  The bill doesn’t create any new revenue streams, unlike the plan passed by the Senate which called for $570 million in new taxes.  The House and Senate must agree on a revenue package before Friday, the day the state runs out of money.
