Capitol grinds to a lull as PA concludes second week of new fiscal year without a state budget

Wednesday marked the two week anniversary of the start of the 2015-2016 fiscal year, while lawmakers and Gov. Tom Wolf have yet to agree on a state budget.

Meanwhile, activity in the Capitol was at a notable lull Wednesday as tourists once again claimed the Rotunda and staff roamed about from meeting-to-meeting.

While some legislative leaders and the governor were in the Capitol, no face-to-face meetings between legislative leadership and Gov. Wolf were reported or observed.
