Patriot-News: Corbett Withholding Signature On Budget

The Patriot-News is reporting Gov. Corbett is now withholding his signature from the budget until the Senate and House do “meaningful pension reform” saying, "I am withholding signing the budget passed by the General Assembly while I deliberate its impact on the people of Pennsylvania."
There has been no agreement on general pension reform, although pension reform for elected officials is making its way through the General Assembly.  The budget also does not include liquor privatization in any form.  Both pension reform and liquor privatization were  Gov. Corbett’s key priorities.
