Noting potential credit downgrade, Gov. Wolf urges House to finish balancing the state budget

Gov. Tom Wolf Monday urged House Republicans to return to voting session as soon as possible to finish up balancing the state budget before the Commonwealth faces another credit downgrade.

 

“They know they’ve got to get to work and we’ve got to get the job done. I think House Republicans are aware of that, I know they are aware of that,” he said. “Standard and Poor’s is threatening a downgrade and I’m trying to hold them off, but they’re looking at what goes on here and, basically, House Republicans need to get back here and get this over the finish line.”

PA Senate leaves town as leaders mull House GOP revenue counterproposal

The Pennsylvania Senate left Harrisburg Tuesday afternoon after a consensus failed to emerge on a plan to plug a $2.2 billion revenue hole that will close out the recently concluded fiscal year and balance the current fiscal year’s spending plan.

 

At this point, the Senate hopes to return to Harrisburg no later than Monday, though whether they could return sooner remained up in the air as discussions on reaching a revenue compromise continue.
