Budget impasse to enter its most critical 24-hour period

While nobody’s called Jack Bauer quite yet, Pennsylvania’s budget impasse is going to be entering its most critical 24-hour period as leaders from all four legislative caucuses and the governor will await the outcome of vote whipping and closed-door negotiations to see if majorities exist in both chambers to pass the tax revenue needed to support the $30.788 billion spending plan as part of the budget framework agreement announced before Thanksgiving.

Who will be doing the vote getting?

House Majority Leader Dave Reed (R-Indiana) said after a five-party meeting Wednesday that the effort will largely be left up to the Wolf administration.

“I think it’s very clear we’ve gone through this process for a number of months now, we’re down to a 24-hour time period where either the administration has the votes—102 in the House, 26 in the Senate—to pass a Tax Code bill,” he said.
