Gov. Wolf Releases Short Video Preview Of Next Budget Which Is Based On Agreed-To Budget

Gov. Wolf Sunday released a short video preview of the budget Sunday saying he assumes the $30.7 billion “agreed-to” budget framework is in place (when Republicans don’t), adding a failure to act means “severe consequences for Pennsylvania.”
House Majority Leader David Reed (R-Indiana) Wednesday again declared the frequently changed “agreed-to” budget framework Gov. Wolf keeps pushing in public statements “dead.”
Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman (R-Centre) Sunday, in an article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, was even stronger saying, “He (Wolf) can pine away all he wants for that to come back (the agreed-to budget framework), It’s not going to come back. He needs to negotiate a new deal, something that can get the votes in the House and Senate.”
